Mrs. Bloss' Winter Weather Prediction

Every fall after the first frost, Mrs. Bloss splits open local persimmons to predict the winter weather pattern. For those of you who don't know how this works- seeds that look like knives will predict a winter that will "cut you with the cold." This year's persimmons have spoons or "shovels" which means- lots of precipitation...hopefully, snow days and not any ice :) There you have it!

Halloween Parties

Halloween parties at the ECC will be held on Thursday, Oct. 31 in the morning. Parents are allowed to check children out after the parties in order to prepare for the holiday if they choose. Please consider when picking out costumes:

  • No violent or gruesome costumes
  • No weapons (swords, guns, etc)
  • Be sure your child can maneuver the costume on his/her own in the restroom
  • Wear shoes for the playground. We will still go outside.
  • Extra parts such as wigs, gloves, masks may get lost after a day at school. We will do our best to keep everyone's things together. But party days are crazy days.
