A Note From the Director

This week we played a real violin in music class, learned about the rainforest, and made kites and rainbows. We continue to prepare for our April 22nd Art Show and Parade and are beginning to learn songs for the May Crowning. See below for more details on both these events.

Next week we will have spring photos. The order forms came home yesterday/today. Please complete the order form and return no later than your child's picture day. Mrs. Bergner emailed everyone indicating your child's assigned picture day. If you have two children at ECDC, you will receive three order forms (one for each child and one for a sibling photo). We are not taking class photos this time so your order will just include your child's picture. Photos will be taken outside with spring flowers. All students have free dress on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Volunteering and VIRTUS

Each year, we rely on volunteers to help support classroom and school activities, field trips, fundraising activities, athletics and much more. Volunteers play a critical role at Marquette, and we appreciate your dedication, time and talent.

What you need to do:

  • First, VIRTUS Child & Youth Protection Requirements have three components: 1.) the background check submission 2.) adherence to policies, procedures, and ethical standards, and 3.) the child & youth protection education training. Each component needs to be renewed every five years.

  • Registration for First-time Users:
    • Visit
    • Select “First-Time Registrant” to create an online VIRTUS account.
    • Follow the onscreen step-by-step instructions for completing the process. We require all volunteers to start this process no later than two week before the date of volunteering.


  • Update Existing Account:
    • Registered volunteers are encouraged to login at the beginning of every school year to ensure that all personal information is correct. Upon login, your account will prompt you to complete any necessary requirements. Automated emails are sent through VIRTUS approximately one week before they expire. Please ensure that the registered email address is correct.
