    Help us Recognize our Amazing Teachers and School Staff!

    It's no secret that we have a stellar school system! The administrators and staff in our district work hard to ensure our communities' kids thrive and realize their fullest potential. This year we want to acknowledge those who are educating our future community leaders and we're confident you will want to support this effort with a sponsorship!

    The Salute to Education Picnic will take place at the Ellsworth High School Cafetorium on Tuesday, August 21, 2018 from 11:30am-1:00pm. During the event we'll be treating all school staff to lunch and appreciating them for going the extra mile for our kids throughout the school year.

    As a sponsor you'll be part of a WIN-WIN-WIN opportunity!

    Check out those smiles! Our local educators really appreciate the acknowledgement.Win #1: This is your opportunity to acknowledge all who play a role in educating our future business leaders.

    Win #2: Your sponsorship helps raise a portion of the matching funds needed for our district's Fab Lab grant! The Chamber has committed $4,000 to the Fab Lab project, which will become a valuable asset to our students and community. The grant will be used to purchase equipment allowing students to gain hands-on experience and practice concepts they have learned in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) courses.
