Welcome to the ECC and the 2015/2016 School Year!!

Back to school! I thought I'd share the letter we are sending home to the ECC families. This is the basic message sent out to the ECC teaching team tonight to adapt/adjust and send home to families as they see fit:
Dear parents, guardians, and families, 
Welcome to the 2015/2016 school year! I would also like to welcome your child and your family to the Elementary Connected Classroom (ECC) project. This project, unique to School District #74, is in it’s seventh year and it is an amazing educational opportunity for all involved! 
We have five ECC classrooms connecting this year:
Ms Eddie’s grade 4/5 class at George M. Murray Elementary,
Ms Helton’s grade 4/5 class at Lytton Elementary,
Mrs. Merry’s grade 4/5 class at Desert Sands Community School,
Mrs. Patterson’s grade 4/5 class at Cache Creek Elementary, and,
Ms Gregory’s grade 7 class at Cayoosh Elementary.
Next week, students will participate in a connected lesson introducing the five teachers to all students. We plan to do connected class introductions before the end of September and the ECC teaching team is meeting for a day of collaboration in early October to plan connected activities for the fall and early winter. We would also like to do an ECC Open House soon so stay tuned for more information on that and to learn about which classes are connecting for which connected lessons soon!

Ms E. Gregory
Grade 7 Elementary Connected Classroom Teacher 
Cayoosh Elementary School

I'm super excited to be working with such a fantastic team and I think it's going to be a great year!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Since sharing with the ECC team, including the principals at each school, a suggestion has come through to change 'guardians' to 'caregivers' - yes. I will do that! Thanks Patrice!
