Back to School Round-Up
26 August 2017
My dear Ellsworth family,
I am going to update you often through this site (www.ellsworthslo.org). I am excited to have this outlet to do that. Today, I want to tell you about the Back to School Round-Up. It will be held at the Pride Hangar on base from 1300-1500, 26 Aug 17. We have lots of exciting activities, presenters and prizes. We are even giving away a laptop and some iPads! Operation Homefront has been very generous again this year to provide us with backpacks filled with school supplies. We also have our bags of goodies, too. My daughter is most looking forward to the petting zoo. We also will have face-painting, temporary tattoos, a climbing wall, sensory tables, art experiences and lots of other hands-on stuff. A few special visitors will come by from Security Forces. I am hoping Sparky and McGruff will be making an appearance and I know everyone will love the Military Working Dogs. It is simply going to be awesome to get everyone together to celebrate our kids and military education, specifically it is exciting to do this while getting them ready to start the school year off on the right foot. It does not matter if they go to private, public or home school, please grab your kids and come join us!
The Ellsworth Officers’ and Civilians’ Spouses’ Club (EOCSC) offers two merit-based scholarships. The first is for eligible military and civilian dependents who will continue studies at an accredited college or university during the 2017-2018 academic school year. And the second is scholarships to graduating seniors who will begin undergraduate studies at an accredited college or university during the 2017-2018 academic school year.
