A message from our Board Chairwoman

Melanie Madigan, Board Chairwoman

Dear Friends of Erie,

I love that Erie is a proud second home to students. The stress of the pandemic on the children and families we serve can make connecting to learning a challenge. The strong bond and social emotional wellness we cultivate with students fosters academic success and sets them on a path to lifelong learning.

We offer top of the line academics and learning recovery program to students. People like you make our vision a reality. I hope you consider supporting Erie Elementaryso you too can engage with this amazing school and connect with the Erie community.  

With gratitude,

Signed by Melanie Madigan
