The Ellsworth Community School District will hold a child development screening day on Wednesday, March 14 at Ellsworth Elementary School. Times for the screening are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to learn about your child's development in speech/language, gross motor, fine motor and play skills. During the screening your child will participate in a play group where social, communication, motor and early learning skills will be observed. In addition, your child's vision and hearing will be screened.
Respect the Flag TO THE EDITOR From the book "Let's be right on Flag Etiquette" approved by Congress July 7, 1976.
