Teacher Appreciation Day and Week

I am hoping that you know how much you are appreciated, not just in these upcoming days, but throughout the year. I am glad I have this opportunity to share and brag about our staff members that are patient, creative, organized, and have the super hero ability to accept and understand the differences in each child. Your ability to motivate, identify, appreciate, and celebrate small victories are what makes our ECPS staff different from the rest. Very few things are more rewarding than knowing you have made an impact on the lives of children who may be struggling to reach their full potential.

Not all super heroes wear a cape, some have a special education degrees or work in a special education field.

Thank you Staff!

Parent Workshop - Take Two!

Staff received positive feedback from the last Parent Workshop on communication. A second Parent Workshop is being offered May 11 on Occupational Therapies at home. Please encourage your parents to attend one of the sessions.

VSA Festival - May 12

This year the VSA Festival at ECPS will have the theme, "Have the heART of a hero". Our VSA committee has spent many hours to schedule artists and activities for our students. One of our very own students from room 23, Da'Vin, has drawn the logo that will be utilized (pictured above).

Please take a moment to appreciate and thank a VSA committee member.
