2019 Cullen Class Trips

We know some of you like to plan way ahead so we want everyone to be aware that the Cullen class trips were moved to the second last week of school. We believe this will help us end the school year on a stronger note, and it will fit better with the standardized testing schedule.

6th Grade: Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY (May 16-17, 2019)

7th Grade: St. Louis (May 15-17, 2019)

Creation Museum

Experience the WOW of Butter Braid Pastries!

Next Friday, January 12th, we will begin selling the one and only Butter Braid pastries and Wooden Spoon cookie dough! This is a simple way for students to raise money for the 8th grade trip to Washington, D.C. Over the course of just over two weeks, your student can sell as many Butter Braids as possible.

  • By Monday, January 29th, you will send back the order form and all money from your sales (Customers will write you a personal check or give you cash, and your student will provide ECS ONE CHECK for all sales).
  • Mark your calendar to pick up the items ON Thursday, February 15th, by 3:45 PM. There is no freezer space to store your items, and they will spoil if not picked up. There is no reimbursement at this point.

The school office will credit your student’s earnings to their D.C. trip account if they choose to go. Students earn $6.00 for each item sold. Just do it!
