A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR
This week at ECDC we welcomed the fall season by enjoying a farm breakfast, visits from Farmer Jo's chicken and the dairy cow, baking apple pies, and shucking corn!
ECDC apparel orders were sent home this week. If you did not pre-order shirts/sweatshirts we have a few extra for purchase.
Plans are underway for the Halloween festival on October 29th and 30th. Children will have free dress on both days and enjoy picking out their own pumpkin, playing games, and cookie decorating.
We have chosen to move ahead with our Christmas program, however, adjustments for distancing will be in place. The schedule is below so you can mark your calendars now.
Wednesday, December 2nd
Thursday, December 3rd
If your child received immunizations since enrollment time in February, please send an updated copy to email@example.com.

Earn Money for Marquette!
For years, Marquette has participated in a fundraiser called Scrip. It is a simple fundraiser that has the potential to earn a lot of money for our school. We have had very little support in the past, but with the new app, I'm hoping to change that! All you have to do is download the app, RaiseRight, and start earning. Purchase gift cards for everyday items (groceries, gas, home improvement, clothing, restaurants) through the app, and a percentage of each sale will go directly back to Marquette. For instance, my 11-year-old just hit a growth spurt and will need new uniform shirts and shorts. If I open my app, find Land's End, and purchase a $50 gift card, 15% of that will go back to Marquette! Or if I'm about to check out at Sam's Club or Target, I can open my app, purchase my gift cards, and scan the codes directly at check out! Marquette gets 2.5% back at both Sam's and Target.
If you download the app between now and Oct. 20th, your child(ren) will earn a SPIRIT DRESS day on Oct. 22nd/23rd!!
