Planning for Fall, 2020
COVID-19 has disrupted many aspects of our daily lives, including our children’s education. All schools turned to online learning for the last three months of the 2019-20 school year, with parents bearing a heavy load at home to make sure that their children were focused and knew what to do. Unlike many other schools, ECS did not lower its learning goals. Our students covered all the content originally planned for those last few months and finished the year prepared for the next grade level. We thank our ECS parent community for all they did to make this possible!
Now, as we set our sights on the 2020-21 school year, our newly created COVID Council is working diligently to prepare us for a great start in September. Based on a number of crucial “learnings” from the past several months, we have set the following goals. [Read details about each goal by clicking on the “+” to the left of each goal.]
In this time of fear and uncertainty, anger and disunity, we pray that ECS can provide a safe, loving, and Christ-centered environment where your children can learn and grow in their faith. May they become a generation of thinkers, problem solvers, and leaders who will be beacons of light for God’s Kingdom here on earth.
We look forward to seeing you on campus in September!
Christ be with you,
The ECS COVID Council
From our wonderful Moms-in-Prayer group, who invite you to prayerfully read and find solace in the Word of God:
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
“We want to again compliment your staff for all they’ve done this year to pivot and quickly build a virtual school. Hats off to the entire staff for working so diligently to maintain community and high levels of learning. As parents working from home, we see the communication we need and have a teacher of the highest quality, as evidenced in her relationships with students (lots of love notes and gentle pushing to excellence) and in academics.”

“I have been so happy and appreciative of the online school instruction my son has received from ECS. The conversion to online classes was seamless, the work load is manageable, the students are kept busy, and their assignments are corrected quickly. The teachers have also been AMAZING! They are readily available to answer questions, teach classes and encourage the kids. Their communication to the students and their teaching have been first class.”
