BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO! A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN to all our E.C.D.S. students who performed in the musical production of Willy Wonka Jr., on Friday and Saturday, at the Howard Brubeck Theater, Palomar College.  A VERY SPECIAL CONGRATULATIONS to our SHINING STARS: Avella and Justin (Wonka and Charlie).  WOW! Another SPECIAL CONGRATULATIONS to our Eighth Graders: Anna, Ella, Jonah, Leela, Maddux, Michelle, Nitalia, and Tanisha.  You all gave a SPECTACULAR and BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE during every show. INCREDIBLE! 🙂

BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO! All who work at E.C.D.S. are so proud of you! ❤

It is with a heavy heart that we move into our last week of school.  I am sad that I have to say “Goodbye,” to our BELOVED Eighth Grade Graduates: Adrian, Anna, Avella, Bowie, Ella, John, Jonah, Leela, Maddux, Makai, Michelle, Nitalia, Rachel, Rose, Tanisha, Wesley, and Winston. ❤  It has been a real joy and inspiration to work with this group of INTELLIGENT, CHATTY, FUNNY, HARD-WORKING, and EXTREMELY TALENTED STUDENTS.   We have had a productive, humorous, and very lively year together. Never a dull moment!  I know that they are ready for high school, as they have covered a lot of high school curriculum already, and they did it with ease.  I am VERY PROUD of our AMAZING Eighth Graders!  THANK YOU for entrusting me and my colleagues with your teenagers’ education.  I will miss all of them, next year.  It has been a pleasure to know, educate, and love them! ❤ ❤ ❤
