Message from the Principal:

Greetings Preschool Families,

I hope you have had a warm and restful Thanksgiving holiday. I am extremely thankful for the volunteers we have at the ECC.  We truly could not do it without them.  I would like to personally thank Sol Sanchez our PTO President for all her hard work and dedication to our students and staff.

We have a variety of events occurring in December to help students celebrate the beginning of winter.  Please read the enclosed information so that you are aware of these events moving forward.  I look forward to seeing you at the Early Childhood Center.

This time of year can be stressful for families. Keep in mind the greatest gift we can give children is our undivided attention. Roll a snowball, play pretend, schedule 15 to 20 minutes a day to play with your child.

I wish you all a wonderful holiday season.

Jennifer Keyes

ECC Principal  




Please make sure your child comes prepared for the weather.  Classrooms will be going outside most days, so your child needs to wear appropriate clothing!  If you need assistance with winter clothing, please contact the ECC office.      




P.T.O. News:

December will be a very busy month for PTO!  The following are events that are taking place:

  • During our December meeting, we will be decorating and preparing for Santa’s visit.


Santa’s Visit:

Santa will make his annual visit to the ECC on December 17th & 18th.  Classes will be allowed to take photos (individually and as a class) with Santa.  If you would like your child not to participate in this activity, please inform your child’s classroom teacher and a suitable alternative activity will be provided. 


ECC Winter Celebration:                                                                            

Please join us on December 20th at 8:30 AM & 12:30 PM, in the gym for the ECC Winter Celebration.  Your child will be demonstrating a song that they have learned this year.  We will also celebrate the season with our families as we enjoy cookies and juice.


Have-A-Heart Giving Tree:

If you are interested in donating a gift for a child sponsored by Have-A-Heart, please stop by the office as soon as possible for details.  Thank you!


Delayed Start:

As the weather starts to get cooler and we get more snow the district may call a delayed start.  If a delated start is announced, there will be no class for the AM session.  The PM session will continue as a normal school day.   


Building News

This month, the preschool staff received their annual training on CPR and First Aid.  Safety is very important to us and these trainings are a wonderful way to continue our education.
