Leader in Me

Dear Erickson Families & School Community:

We want Erickson Elementary to be the best elementary school in Ypsilanti! Unfortunately, this will not happen with just the funds allotted by the state. In an effort to enrich our students’ education, we are raising funds to provide our children with safe and fun playground equipment. Every student at Erickson benefits from the Write-A-Check Campaign!

Please help support the Erickson Elementary Parent Leadership Team Write-A-Check Campaign for 2017-2018 by making a donation today. Proceeds from the Write-A-Check Campaign go only to Erickson Elementary to fund the specific needs of our school.

Attendance Matters: Early Outs and Late Arrivals

Please refrain from signing your child out early. We begin dismissal at 2:20 pm and every moment in school counts!

As we continue to work on improving attendance, we will begin tracking early sign outs and late arrivals and will be in touch with families that frequently sign students out early or sign them in late.

Food Gatherers’ Healthy School Pantry Program distributes FREE fresh fruits and vegetables to all families at Erickson.
