Congratulations to the Kindergarten and 5th Grade students who “graduated” today from ECS!
Thanks to all the families who attended tonight’s summer school kickoff at the elementary. We’d also like to say a huge thanks to Mrs. Scott, Mrs. Kiteley, Ms. Miller, Mrs. Maki, and Mrs. Sponable for planning the event and an equally big thanks to Mrs. Sponable and Communities in Schools for providing the food.
Thanks to Coach Cooper for grilling up some steaks for the baseball team after tonight’s game. Unfortunately the boys lost to Glen Lake, but they still had a great season, including winning the first MHSAA District in 18 years. GO LANCERS!!!
Romaine lettuce was ready for harvest from the school’s hoop house.
Congratulations to the ECS Boys Baseball team on capturing the MHSAA District Title today in Central Lake. The Lancers defeated Central Lake in the semifinal game and then ousted Bellaire in the finals. The team next takes on Glen Lake in the Regional Semifinal on June 9 in Glen Lake. GO LANCERS!
Congratulations to the ECS Class of 2021.
Earlier this week ECS elementary students celebrated the end of the year with an outdoor PBIS rewards day. Students participated in games, face painting, water balloons, and enjoyed treats provided by the PTO. Thanks to PBIS coordinator Mrs. Griffin and CIS site coordinator Mrs. Sponable for organizing the day.
Together since kindergarten. Congratulations to ECS grads Darren Warner, Lyndsay Fisher, Robert Groenink, Evan Wallace, and Landen Clarke. These five students have been Lancers for 13 years.
Getting ready for ECS Graduation. Thanks to Dylan Sommer from Sommer Solutions for the use of the trailer and to Mr. Cary for countless hours transforming it into a stage. Graduation is scheduled for tomorrow night at 6:30. Everyone is welcome. Bring your own chair.
Mike Bennett from Farm Bureau Insurance presented certificates to the winners of the America & Me essay contest for 8th graders. Due to Covid-19 we were unable to celebrate the winners of last year's competition so he presented certificates to those students as well. The 2020 winners were Bobbie Paalman in 1st place, Molly Muladore in 2nd, and Patrick Puroll in 3rd place. 2021 winners were Jaquenji Gibson in 1st place, Calista Hoeksema in 2nd, and Samantha Paalman in 3rd.
Congratulations to the Class of 2021 for completing their last day of high school. We wish you the best!
8th Graders at ECS are constructing solar ovens to learn about the greenhouse effect.
Ellsworth Community School will be celebrating the graduation of the ECS Class of 2021 with Commencement Ceremonies scheduled for Friday, June 4 at 6:30 p.m. Graduation is open to all who would like to attend and will be held outdoors in the elementary field between the middle/high school and elementary buildings. Attendees should bring their own chair as no seating will be provided. Because this event is being held outdoors and is weather dependent, an alternative date/time will be 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 6. Additionally, the ceremony will be live-streamed on the school's Facebook page. Immediately following graduation there will be a car parade for all of the graduates. Congratulations ECS Class of 2021!
