A Message from PTO

Hello Village and ECDC Parents!!

Already a month into school! Can you believe it!?

Yearbook is getting underway and with that I am looking for first day of school pictures.

Please email any pictures on or around campus that you have from the first day of school to!

Also please make sure pictures sent are attachments.

And if you are interested in being your child's class photographer please let me know (if you signed up on Back to School Night, THANK YOU and I got your info from the teachers).

There are 20 classes that do not have photographers (and a handful that don't even have room parents).

Library Volunteers Needed

Village Library wants to thank parent volunteer, Katie Bell! Katie is the mother of Grace Bell, a 2nd grader in Mrs. Johnson’s class. Katie has spent several weeks hanging blue paper over the bulletin board spaces and walls in the library and completing it with border. Katie also helped hang new decor and created a beautiful, starry night reading area in our library.

Visit and enjoy our warm and cozy feel with thanks to new blue papered walls! Village Students love to sit and read their library books in our new decorated areas.

In addition to helping with library decor, Katie also volunteers to help with check out during Grace’s class library time. If you’d like to volunteer in the library please visit our sign up genius at:

Please indicate if you wish to be trained with an experienced volunteer in your first couple of sessions. We would love to have you be a part of our library team.

Halloween -Character Connections -October 31st

1st Year Trial -Character Connections Dress Up at Halloween

For Halloween this year, Village and ECDC are welcoming our students to wear seasonal tee shirts, outfits or simple costumes (no masks, makeup, hair dye, props, or scary/gore please) making a connection to their favorite book character. If your child has the book at home that mirrors their favorite character costume, please have them bring the book in with them to share. It is not mandatory for students to come dressed in character, but are welcomed to do so, if they so choose. Dressing up is optional. We also do not expect that parents to go out and purchase an additional costume. If you celebrate Halloween and are going to dress up, search online and make the connection to a book character. We are sure you will be able to find any pre-determined costume meet the character connection requirement.

Although we have made some plans to recognize Halloween, we also respect the importance of learning time, safety, and our students who do not participate in Halloween activities.

All costumes will be subject to Admin discretion and removal. Parents will be notified and students will need to change clothes.

Let's make this character connection dress up trial year a success!
