End of Year Information

As this is the last Principal's Pen for this school year, I wanted to take a moment and share some of my appreciation.

The successes that we experienced this year were the collective efforts of many individuals and groups. Our PTO aligned its goals with those of the school. They focused their efforts on providing and supporting our students through experiences that helped to foster a positive school environment. Thank you to the outgoing slate of officers who served on the executive PTO board: Brittney Ehrenzeller (President for 2 years), Alicia Desrosiers (VP for 2 years), Erin Harris (Secretary for 2 years), and Riji Paul (VP for 1 year). You ladies are amazing! Additionally, I'd like to thank Nikki Young and Laurie Schauer for their efforts. I look forward to continuing to work with these ladies as they will be staying on next year's PTO board.

Next year's PTO executive board will be:

  • Casey Mitcheli (President)
  • Nikki Young (VP)
  • Corinne MacCarty (VP)
  • Laurie Schauer (Treasurer)
  • Breelyn Parkinson (Secretary)

I'd like to thank the entire EC staff for their dedication to the success of our students. I have not ever had the chance to work with such an amazing group of individuals who understand the importance of promoting academic and behavioral student success. Thank you!

Finally, my appreciation goes to all of the EC families! Thank you for walking beside us and supporting us. Personally speaking, I appreciate the hundreds of views each week that my communication receives. This reassures me that our families our families value the importance of staying abreast of the happenings of the school. The successes that we experienced this year would not have happened if it were not for all of our EC families. Thank you!

I wish everyone a nice summer that hopefully includes some time to relax and enjoy.
