    Sunshine,

    Unfortunately I work during the day, and was gone last week so taking off isn't an option this week. However, I am planning a long lunch tomorrow to take the 7th grader out there to get his shirts and to familiarize himself with the school. I know there is a evening-pick up available, but it is likely to be a zoo. I may try to come out and help then...

    Thanks - I've been there all day and the school is looking better by the minute. I know you and your child will be very pleased. If you can spare a little time tomorrow evening, I know it will be most appreciated. I have house guests, so won't be there.

    Update: I saw Dr. Haro today and Emerald Coast will be starting on Monday. He said he wanted to make sure the school was complete and give his teachers the weekend to plan. He is going to be a FANTASTIC principal...he definitely is not going to put up with riff raff.

    Like all of the schools in the area, ECMS has enrolled a great number of new students following Hurricane Katrina. As of yesterday afternoon, 32 new students had enrolled, 2 were in the process of enrolling, and another 10 or so enrollment packages had been sent out. I imagine we'll see many more on Tuesday.

    The (now 9 day old) PTO has undertaken it's first service project. We're providing each of the new students with all of their school supplies and starting a clothing closet. Supplies for 60 students will be delivered on Tuesday and that afternoon, right after school at 2:15; volunteers will meet in the cafetria to assemble the school supply toolboxes.

    There are 4 (yes, count them four) ways you can help:

    1: Volunteer to help assemble the supplies on Tuesday. This is an outstanding service project for your middle and high school aged students as well.

    2: Be a school supply sponsor. Each supply kit cost approximately $25.

    3: Donate new or clean, gently used khaki pants, skirts, capris or shorts to our closet. ECMS is a full uniform school - the dress code requires that shorts and skirts fall below the knee; the clothes need to be appropriate for the students.

    4: Be a school clothing sponsor. Students must purchase their shirts from the school. The t-shirts are $6.00 each and the polo styles are $13.50 each. One week's worth of shirts - 3 T's and 2 polos costs $45.00.

    Thank you for any help you can provide!

    Sunshine

    Thanks Sunshine! I heard the presentation at the open house on Thursday, but had forgotten which day it was.
