Dear Families,

What a perfect week to practice this week’s thought of the week - “We have fun together.” Spirit Week is one of my favorite traditions. We loved welcoming all the Barbies and Kens, 70s disco dancers, Bluey lovers, sports fans, and, of course, showing off our Oakridge spirit. Who knew that we had so many creative families? Following announcements on Thursday, ECC students were excited to find the 8th-grade cheerleaders in our Big Room. The cheerleaders put on a mini Pep Rally and taught our friends many chants and cheers. Seeing many of our families and friends at the Homecoming Parade was exciting. We are so grateful for all of the love and support. Go Owls! 

I enjoyed meeting with many of you on Tuesday for our “ECC 1st Tuesdays - Coffee, Snacks and ECC Calendar Chat” gathering. We were able to look over and discuss important upcoming events, such as Owl Fest, Parent Conference Day, and Grandparents’ Day. Please mark your calendars for the November ECC 1st Tuesday, which will be held at 8:15 a.m. on November 7. 1st Tuesdays are a great opportunity to meet other parents, ask questions, and share input on making our ECC the best it can be.
