The Spartan Walkway, built in 2011 as part of the ELHS 50th Birthday Party, graces the entrance to our school.
 
Note: These days, it seems much of our news is about the passing of classmates, parents, and faculty and staff members. While these passings are not positive news, we feel it's important to let everyone know about them and have a chance to remember and honor those we've known. We welcome other news you may have and are always on the lookout for uplifting stories and photos. Please contact us with news you'd enjoy sharing.
 
Dec. 1, 2020 - - - Christmas tree in the Center is lit
 
Growing up, we all remember the community Christmas tree in front of the Congregational Church in the Center. While that tree is no longer there, a replacement tree has been lit for many years. On November 28, the lights were turned on for this season. The large incandescent bulbs used during our time have been replaced with smaller LED bulbs. The Lions Club sponsored this project and also erected a creche near the base of the tree.
