Book fair

The BOGO book fair was a GREAT success…there were 106 books bought for teacher’s classrooms.  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!


Thank you to parents and students for collecting box-tops for us this year. We've earned an additional $2,000.00 to help replace DVD players and headphones for teachers' classrooms. As well as add additional 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 12th.  Many of the 2017 box tops expire on June 1 and we’d like to get them counted and sent in for our fall count. ration.

Lunch accounts

All lunch accounts should be paid in full on or by May 19th.  If you have paid extra on your account, the money will roll over for the next school year. 

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. 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 2016-2017 school year a success!
