Hello ECC families! Are you ready to have a little fun? Wednesday, March 2nd is Read Across America Day! I am dressing up as a Dr. Seuss character. Which one will I be? :) We invite you to be a character too... or wear white, red or blue. Hint: I will not be Cindy Lou. (See what I did there?😁) This day coincides with a 1/2 professional development day for our staff. What does this mean at the ECC? It means our AM students stay home this time and our PM students come at their regular time. Don't worry AM students, if you send me a photo of your child or family dressed up, I will post it on our FB page. We hope you are ready to have some FUN!

We had a special visitor at the ECC today. School Resource Officer, John Nettis stopped by to check out our holiday sock and accessories day. PreK student, Jaxon did not let him down.
