Volunteer Trainings
Here at ECDC we encourage families to participate in their child's education and one way to do that is by volunteering in your child's classroom or to help with a school event or project. All parents and guardians interested in volunteering must participate in a Volunteer Training. The Volunteer Training is a ONE TIME training---if you participated with me last year, we have a record and you will not be required to participate again.  
IMPORTANT! CORI forms must be completed
EACH YEAR and be easily done with
 Miss Laura in the main office.
