ECC Families,

Good afternoon. It looks like the fall weather is finally here! We have lots going on this week so please make sure to read through the entire weekly update. Our field trips are this week and looking ahead at the extended forecast it looks like cooler temps and possible rain on Thursday. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for spending lots of time outside on their field trip day. Monday we will kick off the week with the toddler and twos pumpkin patch and scarecrow visit then we have three days of field trips to Faulkners and we will end the week with a training day for our staff which means the center will be closed. Enjoy the rest of the weekend we will see you soon! GO CHIEFS!

God Bless,

Catherine M. Koob

Faulkner's Scarecrow comes to the ECC 10/7
Since our toddler, two's and early 3's classes do not go to Faulkner's we bring the pumpkin patch here! On Monday, October 7th our little guys will enjoy a story read to them by Nona the Scarecrow and then go outside to the OLP pumpkin patch to pick their very own pumpkin! Below you will find a link to a flyer about the event and the times each class will attend.

Faulkner's Ranch Field Trip 10/8, 10/9 & 10/10
THE DEADLINE TO PAY FOR FAMILY ATTENDANCE WAS 10/3. ANY FAMILY MEMBERS ATTENDING WHO HAVE NOT PAID AT THE ECC WILL NEED TO PAY AT THE FARM. Below you will find a information sheet to let you know when your child's class will be attending. If you purchased a ticket(s) your child's teacher will have your sticker(s) to gain entrance to the farm. If you are following the bus to the farm you can obtain your sticker(s) at the ECC before we board the bus or wait until we arrive at the farm. The bus will be leaving no later than 8:45 AM on each day. We will begin boarding the bus at 8:30 AM. The farm tours will begin at 9:15 AM and last one hour. The classes will have time to explore and play before eating lunch. Each class will have time for their students to pick a pumpkin from the patch before heading back to the preschool at 12:00 PM. Also if you are a new student to the ECC or if your child is in a preschool classroom and this is their first field trip make sure to stop by the front office and pick up their yellow field trip shirt. Families who need a replacement shirt the cost is $10. Make sure your child wears tennis shoes, yellow shirt and brings a lunch.

Our center will be closed on Friday, October 11 for a Diocesan wide professional development day.
Join Us Monday, 10/7 for a Rosary Dedication at OLP Church
We will be saying the Rosary Monday, October 7 at Our Lady of the Presentation for Stella Henry daughter of Ashley & Corey and Benjamin Gibson infant son of Cassie & Ryan Gibson. Both are families of our parish faith community. All are invited to attend. The Rosary will begin at 6:00 PM.

Crayola Colorcycle
One of our goals this year is to work on improvements and projects which help us become a greener center. A easy way to do this is to just recycle the items we already use on a daily basis. If you would like to join in there is a link below to the COLORCYCLE FAQ page. We have a container up front available for classes and families to drop off used up markers. They do not have to be Crayola brand to be recycled.

Trunk or Treat at OLP is 10/18
Every year the 8th grade class of OLP sponsors a family fun Trunk or Treat event in the north parking lot of OLP. This year the event will be held on Friday, October 18th (rainout date Oct. 25th) from 5:00 PM - 8:30 PM. This is such a fun event! I encourage all families to attend if you can. All my children have attended OLP and I think this will be my 18th Trunk or Treat! It is great to have a safe fun alternative for Halloween! Below you will find a FAQ sheet and a link to the website. If you have questions let us know and we will put you in contact with the right people.
