Greetings ECAC Family!

The fall season is in full swing and our 2018-2019 school year has gotten off to a GREAT start!  We are so pleased to have you and your student be a  part of our ECAC Family.  

Thank you to all of the parents that attended Open House and Parent Teacher Conferences.  It is our goal that we continue to develop meaningful relationships with you and your child in order to help them thrive academically and socially. 

As we are very quickly approaching the end of the first quarter, we strongly encourage all students to seek assistance now if they are falling behind and to maintain their focus if they are already on track.  It is never a good idea to rest on the thought that there is plenty of time to catch up! 

We would also like to express how excited we have been with the launching of our school-wide theme YOU MATTER!  Daily students are reminded that they matter.  When the staff sees students meeting the school-wide expectations of Determination, Respect, and Responsibility.  The staff celebrates and recognizes students with a YOU MATTER card. YOU MATTER cards are displayed in the hallways for other to see.  

Attendance - As you know, school attendance is required for all students.   We ask that you schedule medical appointments during non-school hours. It is our hope that families plan and organize so that being at school, on time, is a number-one priority.  We all work very hard to ensure that your student graduates on time. We cannot do that if your student is not in school on time, every day when he or she is healthy. 

Senior Dues- Seniors dues are $150 and due in full by March 1, 2019.  To ensure proper ordering of senior t-shirts and graduation attire, a payment of $80 is due on November 28. 

Upcoming events-      

                                      October 25- Picture Day

                                      October 26- NO SCHOOL, End of the 1st grading period

                                      November 6-NO SCHOOL

                                      November 30- Interims mated home 

Thank you for all that you are doing to get your student to school every day. YOU MATTER!

Yours truly, 

Zelina M. Pames, Ed.S.
