Message from the Principal

Hello Parents and welcome to September at the ECC,

I am privileged to be the principal at the ECC and I feel honored to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful students and all of the supportive parents. I want to take this opportunity to thank all our ECC families for joining us at orientation.  It has been a very busy and exciting first few weeks of school.   In addition, I want to make sure all parents are aware of the wonderful family activities we offer here at the ECC.  Wednesdays are a very busy day around here; the second Wednesday of the month we will be having our PTO (parent/teacher organization) meetings, the third Wednesday of the month we will be having our Parent Coffee meetings and the fourth Wednesday of the month with will have our Motheread/Fatheread meetings. I hope your family is able to take advantage of some of the family activities we have planned.

If you have any questions or would like to just have a cup of coffee, please set an appointment and come and see me.  I look forward to seeing all of you at school events in the near future.

 Parent/Teacher Organization

Our first Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO) meeting will be Wednesday, Sept. 11th.  We meet the second Wednesday of every month.  Please consider joining our PTO.  This is a wonderful way to be involved in your students’ education and to help our program grow. 



Motheread/Fatheread is a fun program where parents sit down together to read books as well as share ideas about promoting and supporting literature.  We will explore a new book each time we meet.  Parents will use the skills learned to teach and share the experience with their children at home.  All parents, grandparents and caretakers are welcome!  We will meet for the first time on September 25th in Room 9 at 8:15am and 12:15pm.

We hope you can also join us for our Parent Coffee meeting.  We will meet on Sept. 18th  in room 9 at 8:15am and 12:15pm.  Come learn more about the Early Childhood Center and what your child is learning at school!
