6. School Cancellations:

It’s that time of year again. Please listen to local based radio or TV stations (Channels 10, 12, 6, NECN) for any school cancellations because of wintry, snowy conditions. Information will also be posted on each channel’s website. The quickest one to check is www.turnto10.com. DO NOT CHECK for this info on our website. We will also post any cancellations on our Facebook page as well. PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE NOT FOLLOWING THE FALL RIVER PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN OUR STORM DECISIONS.

7. Re-enrollment:

Re-enrollment forms for EGCA family and friends are enclosed as our re-enrollment period begins on February 1st . Your timely re-enrollment will ensure that your child has a class seat for next year and helps us in our planning as well.

8. Enroll A Buddy:

You could earn $100.00 by getting a new student to join our EGCA family. Recommend the school to people you know; if a new student enrolls because of your recommendation, you will receive a check for $100.00 at the end of term 1…just in time for your Christmas shopping.

9. Winter Dress Code:

Girls may begin to wear the Donnelly grey slacks during the months of December through March. Please be sure that your child is properly dressed for outdoor recess and dismissal. Things to check are hats, gloves or mittens, and a warm coat.

10. Scrip Gift Card Fundraiser:

Please consider ordering gift cards for groceries, gas, restaurants, etc. through EGCA as a painless fundraiser.  There are plenty of order forms in the office.  Orders get placed every Friday morning.  Cards arrive on Tuesday or Wednesday of the following week.  This fundraiser will run throughout the year until May.  Great way to begin your Christmas shopping. There is no charge to you at all; You get what you pay for.   For example, a $10.00 Subway gift card costs you $10.00.  Each company or restaurant donates a portion of the sale to EGCA.  It's that easy! Fundraisers help keep tuition costs down.

11. A+Bonus Bucks:

Stop and Shop Cards:

Stop and Shop is requiring individuals to register themselves. Ms. Robillard will assist you if needed.

12. Boxtops For Education:

We are still collecting.

13. Recycling:

Please save your used ink cartridges. There is a basket in the office for them.

14. EGCA Facebook Page:
