ECC Families,

Good afternoon. It has been a beautiful weekend I hope everyone was able to spend some time outside. This week we will continue to prepare our PreK students for their graduation on May 12. We will also have a visit from Sunshine Stables petting zoo on Wednesday and Thursday. Our PreK students will go over to Church on Thursday for their last class with Fr. Tom and the toddlers and twos will have Stretch-n-Grow on Friday. May is the month of the Blessed Mother Mary and we will be talking about and celebrating Mary and mothers all month. In regards to COVID, there is an increase in cases lately and we are asking all of our families to be especially cautious. If your child is displaying even mild symptoms please keep them home and consult with your child's pediatrician. If a member of your family is sick with an undiagnosed illness please keep your child home. With all of the yearend activities going on here and within your families we need to make sure we are being vigilant and cautious for the sake of everyone. If your child will not be at school for the day or if your family is going on vacation please make sure to email or call the office so we can make note of their absence. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and we will see you on Monday.

God Bless,


Catherine M. Koob
Director

PreK Graduation Wednesday, 5/12
Parents we need to get a final count by classroom so we are able to reserve a space for each class. If you have not filled out the signup genius yet please do this asap. Please remember the max attendance is 4 and the number you put in must be the total number attending this number needs to include your student. For example, if your student has two guests the number you enter will be 3, not 2. Please make sure if you already signed up you did it correctly. As of today we still have around 20 families who have not filled out the signup genius. The link to the email and signup can be found below.
