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 2017-2018 school year a success!

Book fair

The BOGO book fair was a GREAT success…there were 132 books bought for teacher’s classrooms.  Many students bought books for their classroom teacher. 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!

The following 10 students were randomly drawn from the names of student’s who bought a teacher a book. They will get to “pie” Mr. Schroeder soon!

Rylee Bohl, Reagan Williams, Chrissy Conley, Ismael DeLaCruz, Cady Hammel, Cruz Donley, Lane Howard, Brylie Minear, Josie Kueser, & Anthony Jundt


Thank you to parents and students for collecting box-tops for us this year. We've earned an additional $1,000 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 24th.  Many of the 2018 box tops expire on June 1 and we’d like to get them counted and sent in for our all count.


start collecting those gently used books you’d like to trade/swap for a new title. Look for information soon about the date.

Please notify the office if:

Your child’s after school plans get changed. (please notify us by 2:00 PM)
