Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the new school year! We hope you all enjoyed a wonderful summer break and are eager for a new school year to begin. Each year, the ending of one school year and the start of a new school year brings with it many transitions for children, families and staff. It represents a time of closure and new beginnings filled with new hope and opportunities yet to unfold.

ECLC programs will continue to focus on the following initiatives:
Social Emotional Development
Early Childhood - Positive Behavioral Intervention Strategies- CUBSCare!
Language Development and Play
Family Involvement
Student safety and building security

In ECLC's Parent Handbook, you will find valuable information regarding the preschool program and policies, family resources, and school safety. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with the handbook to ensure a successful school year at ECLC. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact ECLC staff at (949) 936-5890.

Please visit our web-site regularly, www.iusd.org/eclc, to find up-to-date information about ECLC and upcoming events! Additionally, our web-site offers a plethora of family resources to assist families in supporting the early skill development of preschool children in developmentally appropriate ways.

I encourage each of you to become a member of the ECLC PTA (Parent Teacher Association). PTA provides resources to support all of our students, teachers and staff at ECLC. Each year, through effective fund raising efforts, PTA supports emergency preparedness; multiple assemblies; book fairs; teacher and staff appreciation days; hospitality for parent education workshops, back-to-school and open-house nights; technology purchases; and instructional supplies. Please look for information throughout the year regarding ways to participate and get involved in the ECLC PTA.

On behalf of the ECLC staff, we look forward to a fabulous year of learning for all!

Robin Hunter
