A mural, depicting the history and culture of Escondido, has been completed and is now open to the public. The Wall Speaks is at the ECCDC Lorraine Boyce campus on 9th Avenue. The painting was created by local artist Leslie Mayer and Cindy Peters. Pictures of the unveiling are on the main page of our website. The wall is 180 long and was made possible by grants received from the Escondido Charitable Foundation and the City of Escondido, CDBG program.
The Escondido Community honored philanthropist Bob & Marion Wilson on Bob’s 90th Birthday. The event, co-sponsored by ECCDC and the Escondido Charitable Foundation, was held at Escondido High School. Over 300 people attended to honor the couple who have given generously to many non-profits in the Escondido community. ECCDC Executive Director Jim Wiese and Escondido resident and Philanthropist Jack Raymond served as the Master of Ceremonies. Bob & Marion Wilson have been generous supporters of ECCDC and we were happy to be part of this well deserved night of appreciation.
The 7th Annual ECCDC Golf Classic will take place on April 24 at the Twin Oaks Golf Course in San Marcos. Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Developmental Specialist Program, which focuses on the development of the child in cognitive, motor, adaptive, communications and social/emotional skills. These are valuable services in the early development of children and your support of this tournament will help to keep this program going.
If you would like to play or sponsor, please contact Megan Siller at 760-839-9361 extension 105 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
One of the most special nights of the year at ECCDC is our Holiday Craft Night. The entire family enjoyed a delicious spaghetti dinner, desserts and then off to the classrooms to make a variety of Holiday ornaments and crafts.
Members of the Escondido East Rotary Club lent a helping hand to Santa by packing over 200 holiday stockings for the children at ECCDC. For over 40 years the East Rotarian’s have provided stockings filled with goodies. Santa and the Rotarian’s will deliver the stockings on Dec. 7. Thank you Escondido East for your generosity.
Children and Parents attended the Annual Ages and States Questionnaire (ASQ) night on our ECCDC campuses. Parents engaged with their children and teachers to complete the questionnaires. The data will help our teachers develop lessons plans which meet the needs of the children they work with. A large turnout of parents enjoyed a spaghetti dinner complete and a great time in the classroom. Awesome job by our teaching and kitchen staff and a thank you to the staff from HDS for helping to score the questionnaires.
