Students and parents got a head start on holiday decorations when they took part in "Winter Crafts," the Early Childhood Center's most recent family event.

All ECC families were invited to the activity, which took place in the school's all-purpose room on Tuesday, Nov. 28.

Participants spent the better part of an hour constructing cotton-ball penguins and making candy canes out of pipe cleaners and beads. Afterward, students gathered to listen to a reading of the children's book "Tacky the Penguin."

Thanks to everyone who helped make our Winter Crafts Event such a success!


Upcoming ECC Holiday Events


Other holiday-related activities coming up for ECC students include a photo visit to the school by Frosty the Snowman and the annual ECC Winter Concert at John Mills Elementary School.


Photos with Frosty


Frosty the Snowman will visit the ECC on Monday, Dec. 4, to take photos with each classroom. All students will receive a photo as a memory of the 2017-18 school year.

This gift comes courtesy of the ECC PTO. Photos will be sent home the week of Monday, Dec. 18.


ECC Winter Concert


Each ECC classroom will perform at the Winter Concert, which will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 14, in the John Mills Gym. Preschool classrooms will take the gym stage during the first half of the program, followed by the kindergarten classrooms after intermission. 

Doors open at 5 p.m., and the PTO will be selling raffle tickets for $1 each. This year's raffle includes a Samsung Tablet and a child-sized bicycle.

Parents should bring their children to the gym by 5:45 p.m. Students will sit with their respective classrooms. Preschoolers will be dismissed at intermission to their parents. Kindergarteners will be dismissed to parents at the close of the program.
