Hello, Panther Community!
In September, we had our first schoolwide STEM Challenge of the year. We were so excited to see so many of our students create conveyor belts! Congratulations to our top three ECE STEM winners: Joanys Rivera, Madison Hanchi and Sanjana Kolla. After we tested our kindergarten through fifth grade conveyor belts here at ECE, we traveled to Shenandoah Elementary to compete among 10 other area schools. A big congratulations to Joanys for earning second place overall!
We are happy to announce our annual Math & Science Night was a huge success on Tuesday, Oct. 1! Our students were able to visit STEM Stations, Math Stations, our Scholastic Book fair, and much more! It was a night to remember!
On Wednesday, Oct. 2, our chorus students performed the National Anthem and Piragua by Lin Manuel Miranda at the OCPS Hispanic/Latin Heritage Celebration. We are honored to be able to perform and show others our Panther Pride!
We were well represented at the OCPS Hispanic/Latin American Heritage Celebration! Ms. Grande, Ms. Scully, Ms. Seda, and Mr. Sanchez were recognized for all of their hard work with our school’s celebrations!
The National Red Ribbon Campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation reaching millions of young people during Red Ribbon Week, Oct. 23-31 each year. Here at ECE, we enjoyed participating in Red Ribbon Week the week of Oct. 28. It was a week to focus on the power of choice! Students learned about how they have the power to make positive choices toward a healthy and happy lifestyle. Our students at ECE were encouraged to write a letter to their future self. Many students participated, and their letters were displayed throughout the school and now will be placed in a time capsule for them to open when they are older. Congratulations to our grade level winners:
Olivia Dencker – Ms. Rivera’s Class
Jadon George – Ms. Benson’s Class
Shiv Tandon – Ms. Hodgkin’s Class
Ana Julia Gaspari – Ms. Maupin’s Class
Paulina Senges – Ms. Fisher’s Class
