Hello Agawam! One of our team members at the ECC is looking for gently used toys for ages 1.5 to 2 years. If you have any that you would like to donate, please drop them by the ECC on Perry Lane. Thank you.
Winner! Winner! The Parents of ECC held a raffle for a fun sled full of toys just in time for the holidays. Jacob's name was drawn and he won the raffle. Thank you to everyone who took a chance.
One of our amazing ECC students brought some members of her family to visit her classroom. The visitors are from Germany and are visiting for the holidays. She was so proud to introduce them. We even learned some German words.
ECC students and staff at our Perry Lane location practiced an ALICE drill today in conjunction with the Agawam Police Department and John Nettis, Agawam Safety Officer. Classrooms practiced a lock down/soft barricade. The purpose of the drill is to empower both students and staff by providing options for what they could do in an emergency situation. Students then had the opportunity to talk with safety personnel.

Why is social play important in learning? “Children's play unlocks their creativity and imagination, and develops reading, thinking, and problem solving skills as well as further develops motor skills. It provides the base foundation for learning.” Education.com Take a peek at how some of our students have been learning through play.

What is better than having a book read aloud?...The ECC's amazing secretary reading to our students on Pajama Day. Miss Laurie wore her red pajamas to read "Llama, Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney. I think she had just as much fun as our students did.
