Come to this parent workshop given by Sol Izquierdo, ECA nurse, on Tue or Wed, May 23 or 24 from 7:45a to 9:15. As parents and educators, we should learn to identify the warning signs that allow us to detect abuse and generate safe, healthy spaces in the family, church, shopping centers, parks, college campuses, etc. Let wise people listen and add to what they have learned. Let those who understand what is right get guidance. Proverbs 1:5 (NIRV) ECA Bulletin

Let’s Keep it in the Family!

Introducing “The Bulldog Blue Pages!” About 2 months ago we received a written proposal from an ECA family that wants to use their insurance business to benefit ECA. They asked if ECA would allow them to advertise to all of our ECA families. In return, they will donate to ECA 60% of the value of the commissions earned from all of the business generated through ECA families. We like this idea so much that we are opening up this opportunity to all ECA family businesses.

Of ECA’s 208 families, only 136 (or 65%) have completed their points. If you’re one of the 72 families still lacking points, plan to attend the music concert (1 point/parent), and/or the Family Mini-Retreat. (4 points/parent).

Cell Phone Tips for Kids More and more really good kids are getting in big trouble with cell phones. Teachers are pulling their hair out over students who spend more time texting messages than learning. Some students are even using phones to take inappropriate pictures of test answers… and each other! Teens using cell phones while driving create havoc… and cause death! Parents are finding themselves in constant battles with their kids over huge cell phone bills, lost phones, stolen phones, damaged phones, phones being used at the dinner table and during church, phones being taken away at school, etc. Here are some suggestions: • Be a good model. Don’t use your phone while driving, and show respect for others by turning it off when you should. • Let your child know that they can have a phone only when they can pay for the privilege. • Don’t fall into the trap of believing that your child has to have a phone for safety reasons. • If the phone is lost, stolen, or taken away at school, it’s gone. Don’t buy them another one. • Take it away if it becomes a problem. While this advice may seem old-fashioned, parents who follow it raise kids who are far more respectful and responsible.

This supports ECA’s firm belief in the importance of developing a lifelong interest in reading. The benefits of becoming an active, fluent reader include greater success in school through improved literacy, development of higherorder thinking skills, and the habit of

connecting one’s life experiences to the experiences of others. All students and families will receive instructions in the next 3 weeks about the required summer reading program. Be sure to read the instructions carefully. The requirements will be posted on the ECA website under School Life / Documents, Forms & Resources.

Lost and Found

The National Ministry of Education planned a countrywide session for all the schools in Colombia to focus on academic school improvement, based on SABER test scores. Our ECA academic staff invested 5 hours this Wednesday afternoon analyzing our ECA test scores and looking at ways to improve them on future tests. This included time to compare the U.S. and Colombian curriculums and see how to best mesh the different standards. A group of parents participated this morning in the analysis and brainstorming.

Lost and Found will be open on Thu, June 1 and Sat, June 3. Please make sure you and your children check the mounds of clothing and other items – they will be sold or donated later in July.

Elementary Chapel Elementary students have arrived – they’re in the Promised Land!

Elementary Fun Day! Elementary Fun Day will be Wed, May 31. PK and K will be visiting Parque Jaime Duque, 1st and 2nd grade’s activity is still being confirmed, and 3rd and 4th grade will be going to Divercity. Students are looking forward to celebrating the end of the year with a fun outing!

Olympics StuCo and the Student Advocate hosted 3 days of House Olympic activities at lunch time last week for 7th-12th grades. All students competed in different sports activities and cheered for their team members. It was a great time for students to get to know students from other grade levels, use the sports talents God has given them, as well as show good sportsmanship and fair play. The Blue Team was this year’s champions!

Last week we learned how the Israelites crossed the Jordan River, followed by God defeating Jericho. This week students saw the importance of obeying God in all things when Achan didn’t follow God’s instruction and took valuables from Jericho. Not only was he killed, but all of Israel was unable to defeat Ai. After he confessed, Israel was able to finish defeating Ai. Through these lessons we can see how important it is to trust God, because God is always trustworthy.

Secondary High School Banquet StuCo is hosting the annual high school banquet tomorrow Sat, May 13 from 6:30p - 12:00 at ECA. They have worked really hard to make it an unforgettable experience. The purpose of this activity is to foster class bonding and provide a space for students to enjoy one more social event with each other, as well as with this year’s senior class. Students have already received personalized invitations. The banquet costs $15.000 (to cover food), and optional transportation is available for an additional $10.000. Dress code is black, white, and the house color. The theme is a Masquerade Ball, so long dresses are preferred but not required. ECA teachers will be chaperoning the event.
