Thank you…                                                                                                                      As we end another year at Ellsworth Elementary, and reflect back over the activities during the year, we can’t help but think of all the people who have helped make this a successful year.  We would like to thank all the parents and patrons who have assisted a classroom teacher during class time, gone on a field trip, and/or helped during the classroom parties. Your time is invaluable to us, and we appreciate you spending your day with us. Thank you DOGS (Dads of Great Students) for your time volunteering at the school. A special thank you to our Bearcub Greeters.  We love having them here to start our days with a friendly smile.  We also want to say thank you to our PTO for all the support they give to EES during the school year Thank you all for helping make 2018-2019 school year a success!

Mr. Schroeder sported a “decorated” beard as a part of the principal challenge for our Books for Teachers campaign.

A BIG Thank You to the PTO for the books bought for the teacher’s classrooms and helping the library sponsor the book fair.  We were able to get a “bonus” for having a second book fair and will be able to purchase an additional $300 in books from Scholastic for our libraries!

Please start collecting those used books. Remember the books must be clean, no torn pages or stains, and in good condition. Books need to be school and age appropriate. We will NOT accept board books or young adult and romance novels. Look for more information to come home in early MAY.

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION                                                                                               Thank you to parents and students for collecting box-tops for us this year. We've earned additional money to help replace and buy new books for the library. A HUGE thank you to Sharon and Earl Johnston for their help in trimming, counting and checking expiration dates.

PLEASE turn in ANY box tops you have by May 23th.  Many of the 2019 box tops expire on June 1 and we’d like to get them counted and sent in for our count.
