    It's no secret that our community has a stellar school system! From the lunch ladies and custodians to the administrators and teachers, the Ellsworth Community School District and St. Francis School staff work hard to ensure our kids thrive and realize their fullest potential. Once again this year we want to acknowledge all who play a role in educating our future business leaders!
