Welcome to our New AmeriCorps Reading Tutor

We are so glad to announce that Mrs. Glenna Brooks is our new Reading Tutor. Mrs. Brooks is a retired teacher who missed working with students so much that she has joined the ECC Team! Mrs. Brooks will be working with our K students to assist with reading skills. This program is offered thanks to a partnership with AmeriCorps.

Halloween Party Day

Parties will be held on Friday, October 27th. Please send students in costumes that are not gory or have weapons such as swords or guns. We intend to go outside for recess so choose shoes accordingly. Also, select costumes that children can manage on their own in the restrooms. We look forward to seeing everyone on party day!

Thank You Grove Fire Department

Thank you, Grove Fire Department, for visiting the ECC and providing Fire Safety Assemblies. We loved listening to the firemen and taking our pictures with the firetruck.
