Changes in our School Board

After the recent election, we have one new School Board member. We want to welcome Mike Streetar as a new member of the School Board here. Many of you know that he is a graduate from North Fond du Lac, and has worked here serving the Village through the United States Postal Service for years. We look forward to working with you Mike, as we move ahead and encourage you to come and visit us.

A second change is that Ryan Pelot will be stepping off the School Board, as he is moving just outside the District boundaries. We have enjoyed having Ryan support us and thank him for his many years of service.

PALS Testing Begins

Next week, beginning on Monday, April 27th, the PALS testing window for grades 4K through second grade opens, and is open until May 22nd. We have to remember that as we start, we are to complete the testing within 10 consecutive days. If anyone has any questions, or difficulties with their passwords, please call or email me.

Following the PALS testing, the DRA 2 Window, is open from 5/7-5/29/15.

Upcoming PTO events

PTO has scheduled a couple of events that everyone should be aware of. Here is a list of dates and events:

5/5 Staff Appreciation Luncheon

5/9: Family Fun Night at the YMCA from 6:00-9:00 PM; Free Admission

5/28: A & W Fundraiser in the evening

Additionally, it was suggested that to help get more parent involvement that possibly the next meeting be held here at ELC. As that gets scheduled, I will notify everyone. Thank you to Janelle Thornton and Jen Gilbertson for continuing to represent us and keep us informed!

Registration Numbers as of Friday, April 24th

Here are the registration numbers we have at this time for incoming 4k and 5K programs:
