News From the Principal's Office

Erie Families,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School year at Erie Elementary Charter School! 

I’m thrilled to be supporting the Erie Elementary community as the Interim Principal this year. If your child is a returning student, welcome back! If your child is entering our school for the first time, welcome! Thank you so much for choosing Erie.

At EECS we strive to create a caring and collaborative community for all students, families, and staff. We do this in a variety of ways, including using a holistic approach to teaching called Responsive Classroom, instilling the Habits of Mind, Heart, and Work in our students, explicitly teaching social-emotional skills through our Second Step Curriculum, ensuring all students can thrive through our Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS), providing teachers with high quality training and professional development, using rigorous, common-core aligned curriculum, and ensuring there are multiple points of contact and relationship-building opportunities for parents, students, and staff members throughout the year.

We promise to do everything we can to ensure you and your child feel supported academically, socially, and emotionally. Strong partnerships between families and the school is a priority at Erie. Please never hesitate to reach out and connect with any staff member at Erie when you have a question or concern. We are excited to re-launch our Parent Committee this year and I hope to see many of you at committee meetings and coffee with the Principal events.

By signing the Parent Agreement, you are telling us that we can count on you to be a collaborative, supportive, and informed parent or guardian. When we work together we can help each child grow, learn, and thrive. 

Thank you, again, for choosing Erie and supporting the learning and growth of your child. 

Let’s have a great year!

Kim Kays

Interim Principal
