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!
