Dear Elk Creek Parents,

 

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Elk Creek Elementary! We hope you have enjoyed the extra time this summer with your family and friends. ECE teachers and staff have been busy working to prepare for the upcoming year and we are looking forward to seeing you and your children on August 8 for our Back to School night. The open house and ice cream social will take place that day from 5 pm-7 pm. The first day of school is on August 12 and the first bell rings at 7:55.


Each new school year brings new faces to our school. We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new families who have joined our awesome ECE team. We look forward to working with all of you to make this school year the best year yet! We are confident you will be pleased with the education your child receives at Elk Creek Elementary.

 

We want to extend an invite for all families to join us at our monthly Parent Involvement Committee meetings that will be held the last Tuesday of the month in our ECE library. This year, in order to meet the needs of busy parents, we will have two options for meeting times. One meeting time will be from 8:00 am - 9:00 am and the other will be from 4:15 pm- 5:15 pm. Both meetings will take place on the last Tuesday of the month. These meetings will have the same agenda and essentially the same discussions. Throughout the year, I will share information about our school goals and current events happening at ECE. It’s a great way to stay informed!

 

Additionally, we will be starting a new parent involvement opportunity this year at ECE called Watch D.O.G.S., which stands for Dads of Great Students. As the name suggests this is a great chance for our dads to get involved and spend time at ECE. Our goal is to have at least one volunteer dad on campus for each day. Our first informational meeting is August 26 at 6 pm in the ECE library. More information will be sent to you so you don’t miss out on this occasion.

 

Please feel free to reach out to me, or any of the ECE staff members, at any time. We love to see you in our school and look forward to teaming with you throughout the school year.
