Arts integrated afterschool program launches in Hampton County

The future is bright... in Hampton County! ECM is excited to launch our first elementary afterschool program in an ArtsGrowSC county. The theme for the first unit is "The Future is Bright!" and the arts integrated lessons include fun activities like blacklight art, glow slime science, and watercolor paintings of the Northern Lights. WOOHOO for Hampton County!

Starting the year with a strong finish

It may be just the beginning of the year, but we’ve already crossed the finish line - the marathon finish line, that is! ECM held our annual fundraiser, the Charleston Half Marathon, on January 14th. We are so proud of all the racers who took part in the day’s events, and so grateful to all of the workers and volunteers. We could not have done this without you all!
