Community Connections

Awareness of, and involvement in, the local community are critical pieces of a child’s social education.  We participate in community life, and we encourage our children to be active community members in Easton and the surrounding towns.  By making sure our students regularly experience the satisfaction of helping others, we help them to develop their own sense of responsibility and integrity.

 Two of our most anticipated charity events are our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive and our annual Toys for the Needy Drive.   During these events, our children are encouraged to help the less fortunate by choosing and bringing in food and toys for local charities.  Our older students are asked to help with the delivery, which allows them to witness directly how their actions can benefit others.

 Students at ECDS also benefit from our bucolic setting aside Easton’s Town center.  Our younger students regularly visit the Town’s Senior Citizen Center, which is located next door. They visit for story telling, for game events, and to show off their Halloween costumes.  As an added benefit, they have an opportunity to sing songs for an appreciative and attentive audience.

We are just across the street from the Town’s lovely library, and we often take mini-Field Trips there in order to participate in its community activities and its many child-centered offerings.
