ECC Families,

Good morning. I hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready for some beautiful weather. I think we deserve it after last week! Please remember this is the last week to register your student or a sibling for the 21-22 school year. Next week is our annual open house and we will begin registering new families. Teachers will be sending home reminders to those of you who have not registered yet. This is our second week of Lent. I apologize for not having Lenten resources out yet last week was really busy. We will have the table set up today. Coming up the week of March 8th-12th will be spring pictures with Lil' Angels. A schedule and more information can be found below. I hope everyone had a chance to speak with your child's teacher during conferences last Monday. If you were unable to attend or need to schedule more time please make sure to reach out to your child's teacher and we will get something scheduled. We are excited to get back outside this week! Please remember to dress your child appropriately for weather throughout the day. Our classes usually go outside for their recess time before 11:00 AM and some as early as 9:30 AM so it may not be as warm out as it is predicted for the day yet. Also with all of the snow and precipitation, we received last week the areas are going to be muddy please keep this in mind when deciding the kind of shoes to send your child to school in. Have a great week!

God Bless,


Catherine M. Koob
Director

Lent
Lenten resources will be available on the table upfront from Wednesday, 2/17 through Thursday, 4/1. We hope you will join us in prayer and reflection during this time of preparation before Easter.
Open House Thursday, 3/4
We will have our annual open house for prospective families on Thursday, 3/4 from 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM. This is an evening we set aside for families interested in enrolling their child to come by and check out the center and visit with staff. Space will be limited this year due to event size restrictions. If you know someone who would be interested please let them know the link to register for the open house is on our website under the future families tab.
Lil' Angels Picture Days 3/8-3/12
Lil' Angels will be here the week of 3/8-3/12 to take spring pictures. They will not be doing outfit changes this year so you will need to dress your child in an outfit of your choosing. They will have a beige and cream backdrop with classic props. An information flyer will go home with your child today. On the flyer, it indicates sibling pictures will be taken separately and together on the day the youngest sibling is scheduled. If you need a different arrangement then please let your child's teacher know. Specific questions can be sent to Carrie Phillips at lilangelskc1@yahoo.com

Updated COVID Information
Jackson County Health Department is meeting today to discuss updates to COVID protocol. I am not sure what this means for us but I will hopefully have some new information to share with you soon. Until we receive new guidance we will be following the same guidelines for symptoms and quarantining.
