YOU for your Participation
Thank you for your support -
the ELES PTA has reached its membership goal of 100%! This means that we have one PTA member for every child at ELES.
Part of the money from PTA memberships supports PTA activities including Heart2Heart Breakfasts, WatchD.O.G.S., special school
programs, and the provision of classroom supplies.
To celebrate this important milestone, Mrs. Foust and the teachers created
an entertaining video for the children called "What Does Mrs. Foust Say?" Check it out at http://schools.henrico.k12.va.us/echolake/2014/02/26/what-does-ms-foust-say-2/.
