Principal's Message

Sunny Heights Families,

The Warren Early Childhood Center is partnering with the Indianapolis Urban League to offer a program, Read and Rise, to our parent community. The foundation of the program is aimed at promoting reading and literacy development in the home. Their mission is to reinforce that parents are a child's first and most important teacher.

ECC will host three family literacy workshops as outlined below:

  • Thursday, April 25; 6:00-7:15 p.m.- Focus on Birth to Age 4
  • Thursday, May 9; 6:00-7:15 p.m.- Focus on Kindergarten and 1st Grade, up to age 7
  • Thursday, May 23; 6:00-7:15 p.m.- Focus on 2nd Grade and 3rd Grade, up to age 9

IUL teaches the workshops, provides dinner, how-to guides for parents and reading materials for children. ECC will provide child care for families whom would otherwise not be able to attend.

Please see the flyer attached below for more information.

Your proud principal,

Barton Lewis
