Week of November 18th

The ECMS Invest with Positivity campaign has officially launched with a goal of $35,000! Money continues to support PTA programs and events, Curriculum & Field Trip Grants, school clubs and enrichment. The goal also includes funding an outdoor classroom and a set of bleachers. Please help us meet our goal this year by contributing to the campaign. You can find information on the PTA/Foundation website and social media outlets. We have already raised over $10,000 but we need your help to reach our target.

Regarding students report of absence: It is the responsibility of parents to notify the school in writing and/or email the reason for their child’s absence within 3 days.  This written note from parent or medical professional must include the date and reason for the absence with a signature. If a note is NOT submitted within 3 days, the absence may be coded as UNEXCUSED.

Q2 4 ½ Weeks progress reports will be made available in ParentVue on Wednesday, November 20, 2019. An envelope with other pertinent information will be sent home with students. Please return the envelope with your signature indicating that you have viewed your child’s progress report online and all the information in the envelope. If you have not obtained your ParentVue code to view your child’s grades, progress reports, and report cards check with Student Services to get signed up.
