ECELP Families,
While we have made great strides in keeping both children and staff safe during this pandemic, we certainly recognize the challenges we have all faced with the lack of face-to-face social contact. As a team, we have worked to make video tours available, scheduled Zoom information meetings, and video chats with families. We were thrilled when the PAC planned a restaurant night  and applaud the PAC's latest initiative to help our families connect (see below).

Getting to Know You

The ECELP PAC wants to help our families get to know each other, despite having fewer opportunities to meet in person. Our goal is to create a "Get to Know the Families in Your Classroom" document to share with the parents in each classroom to help you put faces to names and network at drop off/pick up and at upcoming events. If you'd like to participate (optional), please complete this brief Google form by Friday, October 8th, to share a bit about your family!

Questions? Please contact PAC volunteer Danielle Stackus (parent of Bennett in YP3) via email or 443.994.3550.

Teacher of the Month -  Cole Crousillac

We would like to recognize Ms. Cole as our Teacher of the Month. Ms. Cole is a team player who assists whenever needed to make the ECELP a great place to work, learn, and grow! She received a bachelor’s degree in General Studies with a concentration in Early Childhood Development from Southeastern Louisiana University and an Early Childhood Ancillary Certificate. Ms. Cole is a third-generation educator and has been working in the field of early care in education since 2010. She loves working with young children who are not afraid to try new things and progress so quickly. She finds her job very rewarding.

We are fortunate to have Ms. Cole as part of the ECELP team!

restaurant night

Restaurant Night

Restaurant night was a great success. Lots of family and friends showed up to support the ECELP and hang out. Many families thanked the PAC for putting this on and mentioned that they are excited for future events likes this. 15-20% of proceeds from this event were donated back to ECELP.
