  • Preschool
    • The last day of Preschool is Friday, May 19th.
    • Preschool enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year began on Monday, April 24th.
    • Donations can be paid in the office.  ($25 per semester)
    • Parents as Teachers hosts a playgroup every Tuesday morning from 9:15-10:15 a.m. in the ECC cafeteria.  It has ended for the year but will begin again in September.
  • Attendance
    Daily school attendance is important because students are more likely to succeed in academics when they attend school consistently. It is difficult for the teacher and the class to build their skills and progress if a large number of students are frequently absent.  Data from a California study found that children who were chronically absent in kindergarten and 1st grade were far less likely to read proficiently at the end of 3rd grade.
    We recognize perfect attendance on a quarterly basis and hope to be able to recognize as many students as possible. Please have students to school on time so that they can get their day off to a good start.  Try to make appointments for as late in the day as possible.  Call and let the office know if your child is ill and will not be able to attend.
    4th quarter Perfect Attendance recipients were:  Ethan Bentley, Danyelle Brewster, Emilee Burkitt, Macie Cummins, Arthur Curry, Kylea Dobnikar, Gracie Droege, Liam Hansen, Leo Jiang, Brooklyn Johnson, Riley Julien, Lyla Knox, Jorden Lakey, Miles Melgoza, Allyson Schroeder, Gabe Schroeder, Clayton Wood, and Evan Wright.
    Perfect Attendance for the year was Leo Jiang.
