Pot Luck-June 20th

Mr. Monty's Farewell

Hello Parents,


As you are probably already aware we will be saying goodbye and good luck to Mr.Monty this year as this is his last year as our principal. 


I had an idea for the Parents’ Association to honor Mr.Monty with your well wishes...But I need your help!
I would love for you to send me a few sentences or a brief paragraph of what Mr.Monty has meant to you and/or your kids here at ECPS. 

I would love to share your thoughts and memories with Mr.Monty by pulling all these tributes together for him to read in a coffee table memory book. 

If you have any pictures, heartfelt moments, funnies, well wishes, stories from your kids, a "I will miss you" sentence from your kids...whatever you would like to share please pass it along. 
Also remember you can remain anonymous. :)


This email comes at short notice so my apologies, I will be accepting your kind words until June 21st. Please send your emails to:


Without you this gift is not possible so I really hope you will participate. 


Thanking you in advance,


Parents’ Association President

Hot Lunch Update

-There will be NO items sold to students for cash the day of hot lunch. There are two reasons for this: we don’t always have food left over, if parents are sending their children to school expecting them to be able to purchase items, there may be no items to purchase and their child may go hungry which is unacceptable. Also, we are having the teachers redistribute extra / left over food to the children in their class whom they know to get little to no lunch. This way they can ensure they are getting food and be able to perform the follow up with the parents as required.
-No late orders will be accepted.
