Where the Adventure Begins...

Happy Friday, Families!!

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week. We definitely have here...but NEXT week is going to be even better!!

Tuesday night is our annual FAMILY FUN RUN! Please join us from 6:00-7:00pm. We will have lots of great information tables set up in the cafe with treats for the kids, we'll walk or run together, and we'll have special visitors!

Wednesday and Thursday, during the day, several of our Frisco Firemen will be here to teach our children about fire safety. They always do such a good job of teaching our kids that their equipment is to keep everyone safe, not to be scary. They will also get a chance to check out the fire trucks!

I wanted to share some of our student writing with you. Our goal with writing is to meet our children where they are developmentally and grow them into budding writers! Some children are working on holding a crayon and making a mark on paper. Some are making scribbles to convey meaning. Some are ready to work on their names and starting to form letters. ALL of this is great! The most important part is that they learn that when they make marks on paper they can share their thoughts, feelings, and opinions. Their writing means something! We want to encourage them to tell us about their pictures and praise them for all attempts so that they develop a love for writing. Check out a few samples of student writing from this week right below this box. We are so proud of ALL our students!

For Kids,

Parent Partnership & Performance Night

Tuesday, Nov. 17th, 6-7pm

ECS Cafeteria

We LOVE to watch our young learners sing for us and we know you love it too! This year we have developed a night that will be educational for parents as well as enjoyable! For the first part of the evening, the teachers and teaching assistants will take the children to class for fun activities together. During this time, we will have a parent training session that covers both academic and behavioral things you can do at home to help prepare your child for Kindergarten. Then the children will return to put on a performance of a lifetime! What's more precious than these little voices?!! We can't wait!!
