Hello Parents, Our Purim event was so much fun!  It was great to see everyone at our Purim Parade & Shpiel.  This is one of my favorite times of the year.  I love to see all of the children dressing up, watch our fabulous staff purim shpiel, and eat the delicious hamantashen (cookies) made by our dedicated parents.  Thank you to everyone who helped make this day so special for all of our ECE families. A BIG thank you to all of the parents who helped with Adults at Play.  It was a fabulous night filled with delicious food, gaming, auctions, friends and laughter.  You all went above and beyond and it showed! Pizza Monday is our biggest fundraiser for our ECE PSA.  Our Parent Support Association is responsible for running many of our fantastic family events such as our free movie nights, Shabbat dinners, Pre-K celebration, and our Booze and Shmooze Back to school night, just to name a few.  But we are in need of some volunteers to help set up and deliver pizza on Mondays.  This commitment is from 11-12:30pm and the best part is, you get to stay and have lunch with your child.  Please sign up on the PSA bulletin board directly outside of ECE. We can’t do this without your help. Our water pump is up and running.  The children have had a fabulous time learning how to navigate the hand pump to make the water run.  We have seen the children work cooperatively together, problem solving, in order to dig trenches and irrigate the water to where they want to it to go.  It is amazing to watch as they use their critical thinking skill to accomplish their goals.  Please remember to send additional clothes and shoes in the event that the children get a bit too wet.  We have put a shoe rack on the playground and are asking the children to take off their shoes first.  It was gratifying hearing one of our friends yell, “This is the best day ever!” as she was enjoying our new water feature. Spring Break Playday forms went home.  Please make sure to fill yours out and return them as soon as possible to reserve your spot. Parking passes are in.  Please stop by the Customer Relations desk near the gym to sign out your parking pass.  This is an important new update that we have made to our security protocols. We would like complete participation as soon as possible.  When driving into our lot, the security guard will be looking for your parking pass to allow access.
