Ethan and Karis were selected as the 2013 Elkton Elementary School Rotary Code of Ethics winners for the 2012 – 2013 school year. Each student was selected for their great character. The following information was shared about each student at the ceremony that took place at JMU on May 13, 2013
Karis is a bright, dependable young lady. She always seems to know what needs to be done to accomplish her goals. Even though she is quiet, she always has a smile on her face and a friendly attitude toward others. She is truly someone who always displays all the pillars of character.
Ethan is never one to draw attention to himself, but is willing to step up to the plate to help others. He is friendly to everyone and always has a smiling face. He works hard to display the “Character Counts” pillars to everyone he encounters.
Spring Fling 2013 was a great success thanks to the many volunteers who contributed their time and talents to the families of EES. Children and Parents alike had a great time at dinner, playing games, riding the mechanical bull, and bidding on items. All to the money (after expenses) raised will go to the students in the form of classroom items, technology, and other items.
Yearbooks go on sale for $18 on Monday May 13. Order forms will be sent home on May 9, 2013. Student art work is displayed throughout the book.
The students and staff at Elkton Elementary School want to thank the many volunteers who give of their time and talents to ensure that the students and teachers have what is needed for success. Volunteers provide a service to our students and staff, but more importantly, each volunteer is a role model of citizenship for our students. THANK YOU!
