ECC Families,

Good evening. It looks like we are going to have a very green spring this year! I hope everyone is staying dry this weekend. Today sending a big shout out to all of the moms in our ECC family. Thank you for everything you do! I would also like to offer up a special prayer for all of those families who do not have their mother's with them this year. Moms are very special people and if you are blessed to have yours with you today treasure this time. We have three weeks left in our 2018-2019 school year! This week we will have 82 Pre-K students graduate on Wednesday at Our Lady of the Presentation Church. This is always a bittersweet time of the year for myself and our teachers as we say goodbye to so many students. Some of our Pre-K students have been with us since they were just toddlers! We are so proud of all of these students and know they are going to do great in Kindergarten next year. Speaking of graduations I will be gone this coming Friday as my second daughter, Cameron will be graduating from Missouri State University. GO BEARS! Enjoy the rest of your evening and we will see you tomorrow.

God Bless,

Catherine M. Koob
Director
