Psalm 127:3-5 New International Version (NIV)

Children are a heritage from the Lord,

offspring a reward from him.
Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.
Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame
when they contend with their opponents in court.

Important updates


In the fall our school focus is on Harvest, Friendship and Thanksgiving themes.

Halloween is not observed during school events or themes. We ask parents not to bring children to school in costumes during the week of Halloween. We do invite you to our church ‘Family Experience’ on October 31st at 6:00pm called “Light the Night”. It is a big event with free dinner, entertainment, games and candy. Children can wear their costumes to this evening event.

important documents

  • If you have not already signed a Parent Handbook Agreement form, located at the back of your handbook, please sign it and turn it in to the ELC front desk. Extra copies are available on request.
  • Please return your child's recent immunization records if you have not yet.

Vacation Request forms

Vacation Request forms are available online and at the front desk. Please give at least two weeks’ notice, and remember that the month after the time you have requested is the month your statement will show the credit.


Let your child’s teacher and the front desk know if your child is staying home sick for the day. Please ask if you have any questions about the guidelines for keeping your child home. These are posted in every classroom.
