A discussion of the various district Assessments can be found on the district website under Academics and then Assessments. In addition to information about each assessment, you can also find resources to help you prepare your student.
Your child can order on as many or as few hot lunch/milk days as they choose. The menu will be sent home monthly.

There are many opportunities via Ellsworth Home and School (H&S) and Ellsworth School Family Community Partnership (SFCP). Volunteer opportunities can be found on the Get Involved channel's Volunteer Programs section. Opportunities to sign up to volunteer are also available during Orientation.
NO FOOD may be sent to school in honor of birthday celebrations. The child can be honored in a variety of ways other then the sharing of edible treats. Recommended "treats" include: stickers, pencils, or a donation of a book to the LRC in your child's name. Please contact the classroom teacher with your intent prior to sending "treats".
All items not claimed are placed on the "Lost and Found" rack located just inside of the north entrance to the building. To help this process, please clearly mark personal items with your child's first/last name. The Lost and Found is checked periodically and an updated list is posted in the e-Envelope. Items are kept on the rack for 30 days before being donated to Goodwill.
Your student will need gym shoes on the color day that they have gym. You can print off the Color Calendar from the website and your teacher will tell you the color day for gym for your child's class.
