EC Student Council
The focus of the EC Student Council is to serve; to serve God and others. Through Student Council students learn about godly leadership which starts with a foundation of serving others. Students are taught how to plan, organize, and administrate projects and initiatives and then they put their training into action. Traditionally Student Council helps with Spiritual Emphasis Week each year. Student Council is growing by increasing its efforts on community service and ministry outreach. Students serve with area organizations such as; the Cherry Street Mission, the Toledo Northwestern Ohio Food Bank, Operation Shoebox, Feed My Starving Children, The Daughter Project and Tent City, and coordinate events such as the EC Annual Blood Drive.
Student Council plans and oversees fun student activities at ECS. What kind of fun? Snock Fight – an all-out war between classes – an indoor snowball fight using socks and barricades. In addition, they help make school fun with their annual Pigskin Classic, Turkey Bowl, February Frenzy, and Sneak Peek Week.
EC STUDENTS IN ACTION
EC Students In Action was established to encourage students to serve. Members look for opportunities for EC students to make an impact on their community and then work together to organize service projects.
ELEMENTARY GUARDIAN WARRIORS
Guardian Warriors is an elementary program in which the 3rd-5th grade students mentor a K-2nd grade student. Activities are planned throughout the year to build relationships such as game day, crafts, lunch and recess together, and much more.
Middle School students are eligible to participate in our Lego Robotics program. Each year, the EC Robotics team participates in the First Lego League Robotics Competition. The goal of the program is to engage students in critical thinking, team-building,and presentation skills. Students apply math and science concepts by researching real world challenges facing today's scientists. They also learn to build a functioning robot from standard Lego parts and program their robot to accomplish specific tasks designed by the First Lego League staff.
6TH GRADE OUTDOOR EDUCATION
Each year the 6th grade class spends 3 days/2 nights at a Michigan camp studying God’s creation in a hands-on format. Camp teachers use this outdoor experience lead students in fun activities and to teach and re-enforce student understanding that God created the world and everything in it. Students return strengthened in their knowledge and in their faith.
WASHINGTON DC TRIP
Every two years, EC students in the 8th and 9th grades are given an opportunity to take learning on the road with a trip to Washington, DC. Students travel by motor coach to our nation's capital and spend several days visiting national monuments, touring government buildings, and visiting museums. This trip is a highlight for EC students as they are able to learn about our country's history beyond a textbook.
SPIRIT WEEK AND HOMECOMING
EC Spirit Week is a WARRIOR celebration every year leading up to our Homecoming festivities. Each day of the week, students show their WARRIOR spirit by participating in different themed activity days planned by the senior class throughout the week. The week concludes with homecoming games on Friday and the Homecoming dance for high school students on Saturday night.
