Elementary School Supplies

Once again, the EC PTO will be suppling school supplies for students in the elementary. Students will still need to purchase the following on their own:

  • Gym shoes for PE
  • Ear buds or headphones
  • Backpack
If you wish to donate, we will be having a Bounce House fundraiser at both Quarry Days (8/10-8/11) and Rutabaga Festival (8/24-8/25).  These are our final fundraiser to pay for this fall's school supplies.  We are looking for volunteers to help and of course for families to bring their kids out to bounce.

High School students can check out their supply list at: The PTO will not be supplying the HS students.

Attention 7th-12th Grade Students & Parents

A Note for the Secondary Counselor Mrs. Gaede:

All 7-12th Grade schedules were mailed home Tuesday, July 31.  

Each student met with me prior to the end of last school year to review their schedule and select their courses.  When selecting courses, students focus first on required courses, then on electives. Slight changes to schedules may have occurred as a result of a course change, credit recovery, or enrollment numbers.

Please review your child's schedule and if you have any questions or concerns, please make arrangements to stop in during the date below or email me.  It is important for us to make these changes prior to the start of school to allow for a smooth first week of the school year.

Monday, August 13 from 12:00-3:30 p.m.

In Mrs. Gaede’s Office (Room 311)
