Annual Easter Egg Hunt 2018

eggsNews coming to the ECSD from the cabbage patch is that Peter Cottontail will be here in Eliot hiding eggs for youth ages 2-10. This event will be split into sections so that the younger children and older children will have their own areas. Signs will direct youth to the proper location for their egg hunt. Please bring a basket or bag for your eggs and don't forget a camera. The Easter Bunny will be available for pictures after the hunt!

We are accepting prize and candy donations for the Egg Hunt through March 20th. Please drop off donations at the ECSD Office in the Eliot Elementary School.
