  • Standing up Against Bullying & Domestic Violence

    ECES students participated in the Purple Hand Pledge against domestic violence and bullying on Oct. 16th.  ECES students discussed taking every step to stop bullying with Ms. Teasley during their bullying lesson.  They colored footprints to show they are taking every step to stop bullying.  The footprints were showing that we are taking every step to stop bullying.  They lead them to the Domestic Violence Staff where they took a pledge to stop violence and painted their hands purple on a white sheet.  The white sheet will be held up at the Blue Devil football game tonight.  

    We will continue to support the purple pledge and taking every step to stop bullying by wearing purple on Oct. 24th as we attend an assembly at ECMS on bullying.

  • Dr. Ronnie Hill

     October is Bully Prevention Month. Elbert County School District is continuously working to esnure that our students are learning in a safe environment. Dr. Fran Floyd, Director of Federal Programs/School Improvement, is providing funding and support to assist schools in developing programs that effectively prevent bullying and harassment. Therefore on October 24, 2018, ECES walked to the Middle School to hear Dr. Ron Hill speak about bullying. You may have noticed the blue bands your child wore home on this day. The outside reflects the anti-bullying slogan: U R NOT ALONE! The inside states: EC BANDS TOGETHER AGAINST BULLYING!

     And the Winner is: Sophia Armour

    All of our students at ECES participated in a 3 part Media Lesson with Mrs. Wood. They started by reading, I Wanna Iguana by Karen Kaufman Orloff. Then they researched the pet of their choice. Finally they wrote Mrs. Wiles a persuasive letter to convince her to get he pet they wanted in the library. Mrs. Wiles read all 660+ letters and narrowed them down to 1 winner per each homeroom (31 students). Then she chose the best one for the grade level (3 students). Finally she chose 1 winner for our whole school. Miss Sophia Armour (4th grade) wrote the best letter. She asked for a ChineeseWe Drawf Hamster. We are excited to meet our new pet! Thanks Sophia for using your best writng skills and convincing Mrs. Wiles to purchase our new pet!

  • Mrs. Wiles

     Mrs. Wiles said that she would kiss a frog, if our students met our Book Fair goal of $8,000. Our students surpassed the goal with totals sales of $9,908. We made $2,800 profit. We were able to use our profits to buy some carts for the Media Center, 100 books for our emmergent readers, a Sno Cone Machine, and we have enough to pay for our Reading Carnival! Thanks for your continued support of our reading program.
