Our mission is to build a strong educational foundation while meeting the unique needs of our students.


  • Drop off for school starts at 7:30...School starts at 7:50...Tardy Bell at 8AM..Please get your students here on time. PROWL is such an important time in your students day!!
  • Car rider pick up will begin at 3:20, remember to go around in the gravel lot.
  • Please Read!! Car Rider Cars NEED their Car Tag in order to pick up your student through the line. If you don't, no worries however, you will be asked to park, come in, and sign out your student. Safety is our number 1 concern! Thank you for your understanding!
  • Parents if you are looking for materials to work with your student. Please get with your teacher to coordinate checking out resources from the parent center!
  • If your student is riding the bus home with someone else, your student needs a signed note from the parent, and it needs to be given to the front office before they can ride the bus!
  • Please be mindful of the student dress code for students in grades 3-5. Students who are in violation of dress code will be asked to change and parents will be notified. You can find the dress code link below!

Dr. Seuss Day at EES!

It was a great day at EES! The day started with a fulfilled spirit day! Students were dressed up in their favorite Seuss character costumes, and did fun cheers about Seuss.

3rd grade students did a great job in their "Seussical Musical" facilitated by Amber Satterwhite. You can check out their final number on Facebook!

Grade level winners for the costume contest were chosen by PTO and were given a $5 gift card! Winners include: Madison Price, Drake Jones, Adeline Cash, Axel Havens, Kelsey Wilson, and Ryken Courtenay! Congratulations! It was a hard choice, so many students looked so great!

"You've been Seussed" contest took place and Grade levels won a chance to eat lunch in our Panther Picnic! Some of those questions were tough!! Congratulations to Ms. Gentry's class, Ms. Fletcher, Mrs. Mcnew, Mrs. Hackett, Ms. Franklin, and Mr. Oseguera's Homeroom!

We had lot's of great visitors from the community come and read to our classrooms. Thank you to everyone who came and volunteered! The kids loved hearing the books written by Dr. Seuss!
