Please join us on Saturday, May 19th from 11 AM to 2 PM to celebrate Lemonade Day.

Not Returning to Earhart?

If you have a child that is not returning to Earhart in the 2018-2019 school year please call the office and let Mrs. Littlefield know. We will make sure that the new school receives your academic transcripts upon request from the new school.

Teacher Requests

If you are requesting a specific teacher for your child for the 2018-2019 academic year, please submit a note to Mr. Habben in writing or email him regarding your request. These requests will only be accepted until the last day of school (Friday, May 25th). Please note that we do our best to honor all requests, but there are many things to consider when putting together a class list and some requests may not be honored. If you do not have a specific teacher to request, you can always let Mr. Habben know what kind of qualities you would like in a teacher and he will do his best to match them up with the staff.

Our goal is to have class lists completed by July 1. These will be posted on the front doors of the school so you can stop by over the summer and see where your child has been placed.


Yearbooks are still on sale in the main office for $18. We only have a small quantity left. Payment can be made with cash or checks written to Earhart Elementary.


Parents - We are dedicated to providing a healthy environment for students, staff, and citizens. Our school environment and school grounds are all tobacco free. Please help us by ensuring that you are abiding by this policy and not smoking when waiting for a child in the car pick up line or waiting outdoors for them. Thanks!
