Following last week’s all-school mass, the students at ECCSS presented a check for $2,739 to the Women’s Imaging Center of Elk Regional Health Center. The money was raised during the school system’s annual “Pink Day” which was held on October 18. Pink Day festivities included a t-shirt sale and the collection of monetary donations from students, faculty and staff in exchange for a dress down day.
Congratulations to the cast and crew of “Shrek The Musical” on a job well-done! Congratulations are also extended to all the volunteers who helped put on those four fantastic performances! Thank you for all your hard work and dedication over the past few months – it truly paid off! What an amazing show!!
Please read the message below and alert your family members and friends who shop in your name of these updates.
From now on, the Wednesday evening Scrip hours will be held inside St. Marys Catholic Elementary in the new Scrip office (the classroom to the right of the old Scrip office.) Also, from November 27 – December 18, Wednesday evening hours will be extended from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
If you are planning on placing an order before Thanksgiving (for arrival by December 4), your order will be due by noon on November 27.
There will be a special “Thank-Scrip-ing Day” on Thanksgiving Day. Many retailers offer increased percentages for one day only on their ScripNow! items. If you don’t have PrestoPay, please make sure to text Bonnie or Mary after submitting your ScripNow! order. If you don’t, you won’t get the increased percent.
Happy holiday shopping!

The following retailers/restaurants have recently been added to the list of ScripNow! vendors: Kohl’s, Boscov’s, Darden Restaurants (Red Lobster, Olive Garden, etc.), and XBox Live.
Also, due to an overwhelming amount of orders at the Great Lakes Scrip Center, this week’s shipment won’t arrive until Wednesday afternoon. The on-hand inventory is extremely low, so the office will not be open on Wednesday morning. However, the Wednesday night hours will be extended from 5 – 6:30 p.m.
We apologize for the inconvenience.

Shrek The Musical will be presented on Thursday, November 21 – Saturday, November 23 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, November 24 at 2 p.m.
Shrek The Musical, based on the Oscar® winning DreamWorks film that started it all, brings the hilarious story of everyone’s favorite ogre to dazzling new life on the stage.
In a faraway kingdom turned upside down, things get ugly when an unseemly ogre — not a handsome prince — shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won’t shut up, a bad guy with a SHORT temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand…and his name is Shrek.
Full of all-new songs, great dancing and breathtaking scenery, Shrek The Musical is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and all irreverent fun for everyone!
Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for students. The performance will be held in the ECCHS auditorium.
The ECCHS Alumni Association will hold its November Alumni Mass on Thursday, November 21 at 9:20 a.m. in the ECC Auditorium. This will be a special all school mass, which will include the students, faculty and staff from all three Elk County Catholic School System schools. Highlights from ECC’s upcoming production of “Shrek The Musical” will also be performed by the Drama Department. All alumni members are invited to attend and celebrate. Breakfast will be served immediately following in the cafeteria. Join us to give thanks in preparation for the Thanksgiving holiday! Hope to see you there!
In response to the media broadcasts and publications regarding the USDA’s lean finely textured beef being served in our schools, Elk County Catholic School System has released the following statement from interim president Mary Agnes Marshall:
“While the ground beef from the USDA is nutritious, flavorful, and safe, we are choosing not to use it due to the significant negative publicity it has generated.”
Additional questions or concerns may be directed to ECCSS food service director Kim Schlimm at 834-7813.
