Principal’s Report - In anticipation of potential forthcoming budget cuts the ELC may consider extending the week to include school on Mondays for all students. It may also consider increasing the class size to 20 students in the Pre-K classrooms. This would help reduce the wait list and enable more students to attend the ELC. It is also considering a modest increase in tuition as a result of the extended school week.
Celebration of Learning Stay tuned for more information about the ELC’s Celebration of Learning night. This is an exciting night for all as students and parents come to the ELC and see all the exciting things they have been busy doing. This year the theme will be related to “growing and planting”. We look forward to seeing you there.
