A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR


  • We miss all of our ECDC friends! I hope you are staying safe and warm during this crazy winter weather. It sounds as if more snow is headed our way. We will keep you informed of the school's status via email and social media.
  • See below for information on Friday lunches during Lent.
  • Our Lenten service project begins in March and will benefit Catholic Charities. They are in need of diapers, formula, and canned goods. See the flyer below for details.

Lunch During Lent

All of the in-school Fridays during the months of February and March fall during the Lenten season, so we will not be serving meat on those days, hence no Chick-fil-A. Luckily, the McNellies Group will be providing us with a couple of delicious options that we will alternate for the five Fridays during Lent. We will not be in school the first two Fridays of February so the first lunch (Feb. 19th) will be spaghetti, garlic bread, and a dessert, and the second lunch (Feb. 26th) will be macaroni and cheese, green beans, and a dessert. Again, we will be alternating these two selections during the month of March. Thank you so much for the continued support of this 8th-grade fundraiser! If you have any questions, please let us know.

Blessings,

Dru Jenkinson and Kristin Mayfield
