Echo Lake's Got Talent!

Make plans to attend the Echo Lake Talent Show on Tuesday, April 8 at 6:30PM!  Come and support your friends and fellow students as they sing, dance, and perform magic for the audience.  Please join us for this fun, FREE, family event!  If you have any questions about the ELES Talent Show, please contact Amy Cormier at 

If  you are in the show, please remember that there will be mandatory dress rehearsals on March 25, April 1, and April 7.


THANK 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


Great Job DI Teams!


 Congratulations to our fabulous Destination Imagination teams!  Echo Lake ES had close to 40 students compete on 6 DI teams in the regional tournament this year.  Three teams advanced to the state tournament.  The Creeping Creepers won the Technical Challenge, the CC's came in first in the Fine Arts Challenge, and the Sensational Sensations finished second in the Improv Challenge.  The state Destination Imagination tournament will be on April 5 in Harrisonburg.  We are so proud of all of our great DI competitors!


Spirit Nights + Box Tops = $$ for ELES

Thank you to all of our families for your support of the ELES Spirit Nights and our BoxTops for Education Program.  Our Spirit Nights have raised over $1800 and the BoxTops program has generated almost $700 for the ELES PTA.

Please continue to support these programs.  We will have several more Spirit Nights before the end of the school year including the popular ELES Night at the Diamond.  Watch for details on the PTA website or contact Michelle Sherrod at
