Happy Fall!!! It’s hard to believe we have already made it one nine weeks, and we are jumping into a second one! We are thrilled that Everyone is Committed to Student Success in the Early County School System! We have some amazing things going on such as our Boosting Engineering, Science and Technology (BEST) Team, Scholars Academy, Early Birds, JROTC, Band, Chorus, and many, many other activities, clubs, and athletics. There’s something for everyone!

Our ECHS Bobcat Football Team is having an awesome year, and our softball, volleyball, and cross country athletes are representing us well! We have also been recognized as a Google Reference District, which means we are implementing best practices with our Google Classroom initiative and have been spotlighted to share our practices with other school systems. Congratulations to Technology Director Michael Williams and all of our Google Classroom teachers for doing a great job incorporating technology into engaging lessons. We have hosted superintendents, technology directors, and curriculum directors from Southwest Georgia RESA and showed off our best engaging technology practices and are excited to have a solid program that allows teachers and students to use technology productively in the classroom.

We have also recognized several Employees of the Month and Be Inspired winners. They are adults in our school system who go above and beyond for our students and for their adult peers. There are superheroes everywhere you look in the Early County School System! Choose EC and be a part of the magic that is going on in our school system!
