Welcome Back Echo Lake Students and Families!
We are excited to see our hallways and classrooms filled once again. It has been an exciting summer around Echo Lake. Almost 400 students visited us during our Open Library dates. Thank you to Mrs. Cruz for organizing this fantastic opportunity and for all the families that participated. Doesn’t the front of the school look great? That’s because our maintenance staff did a fantastic job touching up our parking paint. In addition, through a community partnership with Shoreline Covenant Church, we have all new bark resting under our beautiful trees. Thank you to Shoreline Covenant for supplying us with the people needed to make this happen.
Our annual Meet the Teacher, Open House, PTA BBQ is tomorrow, September 2nd from 3:00-4:00. The PTA BBQ will run from 3:30-5:00. This is a wonderful opportunity to stop by and meet your child’s new teacher, reconnect with friends, drop off school supplies for the year, and enjoy a little BBQ. The PTA will provide hot dogs, buns, condiments, chips and drinks. Please bring something to share – desserts, salads, etc.
New this year, our library will also be hosting a Back to School Book Fair! The book fair will be held in the Reference Room. This is a great opportunity to pick up a fun new book to kick off the school year. All proceeds from the sales go to support our library programs. The Book Fair will be open during our Open House and all week.
Tuesday, Sept 2 3-6pm
Wed., Sept. 3 8:30am-4pm
Thurs., Sept 4 8:30am-4pm
Fri., Sept. 5 8:30am-4pm
School starts Wednesday, September 3rd. If you get the chance, we are hosting a Welcome Coffee in the library at 9:10 Wednesday and Thursday. This is a another opportunity to meet families or get to know our PTA. For those students riding the bus, please make sure to be at your stop a few minutes early. Parents, be prepared for some flexibility as we are starting the year with several new bus drivers, routes, and bus colors. We will have staff at the school to assist your child in finding their classrooms and ensure they are on the appropriate bus for the ride home. For those parents who are driving, please do not pull into our bus loading/unloading zone to drop students off. This is very dangerous and is not an area where our patrols and crossing guards are watching. If you plan to park and walk your student to their class, please make sure to be respectful of our neighbor’s driveways and private property.
We can’t wait for the school year to start!
See you all soon,
