Message from the Principal:

Hello ECC Families:

2019 has been a very busy year already!  Teachers have completed the mid-year GOLD checkpoint on all students and students have been making great progress toward their individual learning goals!  Teachers will be sharing this progress during Parent/Teacher Conferences in March. Registration has opened for the 2019/2020 school year. Please use your parent portal information to login to Infinite Campus and register.

Best Regards,

Jennifer Keyes


P.T.O. News:

Please join us for the PTO meeting on February 13th at 8:15 or 12:15 in room 15.  All students will receive a donation box to collect money for “Pennies for Patients”, on February 7th, all money will be donated to the leukemia society. Donations are due on Thursday, February 21st.  


 Registration for 2019/2020:

Parents should have received information about registration in Thursday folders sent home last week.  All students must re-register to attend Preschool or Kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year. We are requiring students to attend their elementary neighborhood school for 4-year-old preschool if that school has a preschool program. The WPS elementary schools that have half-day preschool are: FM Day, Skyline Vista, Hodgkins, Flynn and Mesa Elementary.  If your child will be entering the 4-year-old program (4 by Oct. 1, 2019), you can enter the lottery to attend the full-day preschool programs.  Upon submission of a completed application, participants will be randomly selected to attend full day. The first round of lottery will occur on March 1st, so register soon! If your child is not selected, WPS will try to secure a half day placement for your student. Please stop by the office if you need help or more information about this.

Applying is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3!



Motheread/Fatheread will meet on February 27th in Room 15 @ 8:15 AM & 12:15 PM.  Come join us for another great story and a book to share with everyone in your home! 


Parent Coffee:

It’s so nice to see so many families involved at the ECC!  Parent Coffees are another great opportunity for families to get involved!  Our next Parent Coffee will be February 20th in room 15 at 8:15AM and 12:15PM.
