Hello, Panther Community!
October was a very busy and exciting month for our Eagle Creek Panthers. We wrapped up our celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month with a night of festivity, celebrated student successes on iReady, hosted our Boosterthon Fun Run, celebrated National Red Ribbon Week, as well as hosted our annual Vocabulary Parade!
Hispanic Heritage Night
On Thursday, Oct. 18, we enjoyed a night of celebration in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. Students from grades K-5 created wonderful displays of art, including glass mosaics, instruments, piñatas, and clay pottery, as well as choreographing their own dance. Joined by first grade and by the direction of music teacher Ms. Grande, we enjoyed learning facts from Hispanic countries, songs and much more! Thank you to all who came out and joined the fun!
The Boosterthon Fun Run was a huge success. We ended our Boosterthon fundraiser with an awesome Fun Run on Thursday, Oct. 25. Parents, thank you all so much for supporting this year’s Eagle Creek Fun Run. I would like to congratulate all of our students for completing the Boosterthon Fun Run. I would like to thank our PTA, our parent volunteers, and Eagle Creek families who came out to support our runners as well as those who donated to help support our school.
National Red Ribbon Campaign
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 on Oct. 23-31 each year. Here at ECE, we enjoyed participating in Red Ribbon Week the week of Oct. 29. 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 design a suitcase, passport, or map of where life will take them! Many students participated, and their artwork was displayed throughout the school. Pictured below are our grade-level winners:
Susanna Fisher – Ms. Bonchack’s Class
Arielle Beloso – Ms. Hodgkins’ Class
Brendan Gruber – Ms. Levy’s Class
Ismael Beloso – Ms. Bonchack’s Class
Grace Allen – Ms. Zimmerman’s Class
Eagle Creek was crawling with words on Wednesday, Oct. 31! Parents came to enjoy the beautiful weather and see words come to life! After the parade, parents were invited into the classrooms to take pictures with their students. Thank you, students, parents and teachers for making this a wonderful learning event for our students.
Relay for Life
Thank you to all who supported our ECE Relay for Life team! We are proud to announce that our school raised $4,716 to help find a cure for cancer! A big shout out to Mrs. Moreno’s 2nd-grade class – they won a pizza party for collecting the most “Coins for Cancer!” Their class collected $211! Way to go, Panthers! We are so thankful for everyone’s support of this great cause.
