A publication for the Eagle Crest Elementary community.

Hello Eagle Crest Families!


My name is Amanda Holden and I am so excited to be taking on the principalship at ECES!  I am currently a principal in Bayfield, CO, which is outside of Durango.   As we ease into the end of the school year, I am looking forward to joining the Eagle Crest community. 

For me and my family this truly feels like coming home!  Although we have been living in the southwest corner of the state for the past three years, our home is truly Boulder County, and we are excited to be closer to our extended family and community.  At the moment we’re in the tornado of packing, moving, and saying goodbye to the dear friends and sweet community we have created out here in rural Colorado.  And yet, in all the hustle and bustle, we are so thrilled to be making our way back to our roots. Our two children, Brady (6) and Alex (2) are thrilled to be closer to their cousins, and they are excited to start school in their new neighborhood. 

One of the aspects I admire most about ECES is the community school feel and the focus that staff and families have on student-centered learning and growing.  In my early talks with staff it is clear that they work super hard to meet the needs of all learners, and that they are invested in making our school a warm and joyful learning environment for everyone.  I know that we have a culture of family involvement and support in our school and I am ready to dive in with all of you to continue this good work.  

We are moving at the beginning of the summer and I plan to be around the building during the Project Launch summer program in June, and of course in August as we gear up for the school year.  My greatest hope is that I will get to know students and families and form relationships that help us to continue to support our students to shine!

I look forward to getting to know you and your children!

End of Year Picnic
Important Information!


We will still be holding our whole school picnic on the last day of school (May 27th) for staff and students only.  We will head outside at about 11 after classes hold their individual end of the year celebrations.  We will have music playing and the day will mirror what we typically do on that last day except that students will need to stay in their cohort.  In a typical year, many parents choose to take students home following the picnic to get a jump start on summer vacation.  If you chose to take your child out early, you will be picking them up at their outside classroom door or where they enter the building in the morning.  We hope this eliminates major congestion at the front door and makes for a quick pick-up.  If you will be having anyone pick-up your child not listed as a contact in IC, you must notify the classroom teacher through email.  Students will not be allowed to leave with a friend or another contact without prior notice.  We apologize that parents aren't allowed to participate in these events, but we hope to create a great experience for our students.
