December 2017

It’s that sparkly time of year! With so much excitement and busy activities, it’s even more important to be deliberate about giving your children (and yourself!) quiet times. Consider ending your day snuggled under the tree, with all devices off. Read a Christmas story and sing a few songs with only the twinkling lights of the tree. Jesus came to be our Friend and Savior and He can bring peace to our hearts.

Coffee with the Principal Wed., November 29, 7:45-8:15. Free coffee, tea, snacks at the South Campus and a chance to meet and visit with Mrs. Profilet. If you’re looking ahead in the school years, information regarding St. Paul’s Lutheran School will be available.

Donations - Thanks for your caring hearts! 69 boxes of cereal were collected in November and donated to Circle of Concern. What a blessing!

Rah, Rah, Rah! Tuesday, Nov 28, at 5:15 our Junior Cheerleaders will be performing at the St. Paul’s boys' basketball game. Thanks to Mrs. Cannon, Cheer Coach and the 7th and 8th grade cheerleaders for coaching and mentoring. 

The ECC Christmas Program is next week, Tuesday, December 5 at 6:30PM at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church (corner of Ballas and Manchester). You are all invited to enjoy the beautiful singing, bells, and special message from the Hearts, Bears, Caterpillars, and Stars classes.

Tabby stuffed dogs are for sale in the ECC office for $10.  There are a limited number but we can take orders for additional ones. All proceeds help support the Comfort Dog Ministry. We love Tabby! 

The Shoeman collection is going on now until December 11. Simply tie or rubber band pairs together and drop off your gently used shoes in the collection boxes. This event is sponsored by St. Paul’s School Student Council.

 

Teacher Gifts
Our ECC Staff certainly doesn’t expect any type of presents from students/families. They truly serve with joy! But if you want to give a token of your love, stop by the ECC Office. We have a Gift Binder with lists from all teachers and staff of “A Few of Our Favorite Things”. Feel free to take a peek.
