Welcome back to another week of learning adventures and fun at ERD. We hope you all have an awesome week!

We had excellent participation on last Friday's spirit day of "wear your favorite color" for National Crayon Collection Month. Please see our Facebook page for additional photos.

Our first PTO meeting of the year was a success! Many thanks to all who attended. And special thanks to the Dawkins family for feeding everyone, and to our PTO for the door prizes. Please see our Facebook page for additional photos.

Important notes and information

  • Individual ACAP scores will be available this week and will be sent home soon. These reports are for students in grades four and five who tested with us last spring. When you receive your child's report, please look over it carefully to determine your child's specific strengths and weaknesses. Please contact his/her teacher for strategies that you can implement at home to further support your child's learning journey.


  • We are having some major bus issues, especially in the afternoon. If your child is a bus rider, please speak to him/her about the importance of staying seated, quiet, and keeping their hands, feet, and all personal objects to themselves.


  • Car riders are to be dropped off from the carpool lines beginning at 7:15 am. Please do not park your vehicle in order to walk your child to the door. STUDENTS CANNOT BE DROPPED OFF AND LEFT ALONE BEFORE CAR POOL BEGINS. SUPERVISION IS NOT PROVIDED UNTIL 7:15.


  • PreK drop-off begins at 7:45. SIBLINGS OF PRE-K STUDENTS ARE TO ENTER THE SCHOOL THROUGH THEIR DESIGNATED DOORS, NOT THE PRE-K DOORS, UNLESS THEY ARE 4TH GRADERS. Please see the Morning Drop-off Map link near the bottom of the Smore for the doors that students are to enter.


  • Please send your child with a refillable water bottle daily.


  • We understand that some parents choose to send their child to school with a cell phone. This is a personal choice. Students will not have access to their phones during instruction. Phones must be powered down and put away in a designated place (as determined by the classroom teacher) during the school day. Please be aware that students that bring cell phones to school are doing so at their own risk and the school or school employees are not responsible for your child's phone.
