Good Afternoon Parents,

The month of September is coming to a close and we are looking forward to the month of October!  October will be full of the fun and exciting events here at Assumption ECLC.  Before looking forward, I want to share with you some news from September.

Charleston Wrap Fundraiser

Our Charleston Wrap Fundraiser ended on Friday September 21st.  As a school, the ECLC raised $9,269.50 in total sales.  We receive between 30% and 40% of total sales, depending on the items purchased.  We are hoping to hear from Charleston Wrap by the end of this week to see exactly how much the ECLC made in this fundraiser.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the sale.  Mrs. Taylor’s class wins a PIZZA party for having the tops sales; $1,956.00!  Congratulations!!!

The top seller in each class wins one of the stuffed animal toys up front.

Congratulations to:

  • Mrs. Miriam’s Honeybees: Elody Bednar
  • Ms. Caroline’s Cubs: Zeke Skutt
  • Ms. Virginia’s Ducks: Brighton Condy
  • Ms. Hartley’s Hippos: Riley Kinnunen
  • Ms. Helen’s Owls: Riley Irwin
  • Mrs. Ellie’s Elephants: Grace Kelly
  • Mrs. Taylor’s Tucans: Adair Currie
  • Mrs. Valbuena’s Dinosaurs: Mabel Cowen
  • Mrs. Brown’s Bears: Colton Wood
  • Mrs. Christina’s Caterpillars:  Emma Juardo

Please pick your toy from the front office!  All students who participated will get a little toy or sticker set depending on the age group, as the little toys are choking hazards for children under 3 years old.

Thank you again for participating!  This fundraiser will go towards purchasing curriculum and classroom materials for our infant, toddler, PK1 and PK2 classrooms.

Fire Lane and Cross Walk

I want to thank you all for your cooperation in no longer parking in the fire lane.  Please remember that from 7:00AM -8:00AM there is no parking in the loading and unloading zones in front of the gym as well.

Please remember to use the cross walk when crossing the street.  Arrival and dismissal can be extremely hectic, using the cross walk allows the teachers to stop cars so the children and parents can cross safely.

Now for upcoming events…
