A Message From The Principal:

Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s),

As we move into the second half of the school year, I must thank you very much for your continued support of your children and our school community. Below are a few reminders:

  • As we continue to celebrate holidays and birthdays in the classroom, please make sure to follow the Guidelines For Holiday, Birthday, and Other Classroom/School Celebrations when sending in items with your child. These guidelines can be found in the Parent Handbook and on the District Website.
  • Morning Drop-Off: Please make sure your child has their ID Badge visible. We recommend having it permanently attached to their bookbag. If utilizing the drive-up line, make sure to remain in the car and to drive up all the way so there is not a large gap between you and the car in front of you.

  • If you are not already following us on Instagram, please follow us at: eclc_07026 This is a beneficial way to see all that the students and staff do throughout the school year.

  • Join the ECLC Remind App to stay updated on reminders. Contact your child’s classroom teacher for the memo on signing up for the school wide Remind App.

Indoor Letter Recognition Activity:

While the colder weather may keep you and your preschooler indoors a little more, you may want to try having an indoor Letter Scavenger Hunt. Have your child locate letters around the house (For example: look on cans of food, toys, pieces of mail, clothing etc.). Have fun with it, dress up like a detective, use a magnify glass or make binoculars out of toilet paper tubes to help with the scavenger hunt.
