The ELC PTO is very active in fundraising in order to provide a variety of enrichment programs for the students throughout the school year. Parents and siblings are always welcome at our Enrichment Events! We also recognize all the wonderful teachers and staff during Teachers’ Week with a luncheon and gifts to show our appreciation for all their hard work and commitment to our kids. A handful of our favorite repeat enrichment activities are listed below to give you an idea of what sorts of activities we coordinate. There is also a calendar below for you to reference and add to your calendar if you’d like..
