A Message From The Principal:

Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s),

As we begin the month of March, I must thank you for your continued support of your children and our school community. Below are a few important dates and 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.
  • Wonderful Wednesday will be held on March 22nd at 1:30 PM.
  • We will be hosting a Friendly’s Night on March 2nd from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM at the Friendly’s in Elmwood Park located at 240 Route 46 East. Pete The Cat will be making a special appearance.
  • Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on March 28th and 29th. Student dismissal will be at 12:05 PM for both days.
  • 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.
  • If you are walking your child to school in the morning, make sure to stand on the walk-up line with your child. Please do not stand by the front entrance.


Family Reading Challenge:

As an extension to the fun activities, we have occurring during Read Across America Week, we have created an ECLC Family Reading Challenge. Please see the memo that was sent home.
