Project Shady Tennis construction is officially underway! Through the generosity of @FLAC, @RothandSonsFence, and an anonymous donor, the EAHS tennis courts are finally getting TWO 18’x30’ shade sails over the bleachers. Sunburns no more for our families and spectators. Roth site supervisor (and cattle dog), Scout, says they’ll be ready in time for the ribbon cutting and boys tournament on April 25!

Calling all three-year-olds! The Elkhorn Playgroup is still accepting applications for the 2024-25 school year. Register online at tinyurl.com/elk-playgroup-24 This program is a playgroup consisting of five students with special needs and five typically developing students. It meets multiple times a week for two hours a day at Jackson Elementary School in Mrs. Kitzmiller’s classroom. During this program, play-based learning will expose students to literacy, gross and fine motor, and language development activities. This model allows for enrichment for all children who participate in the program. Research shows that these blended classrooms provide benefits for all children who participate. To be eligible to attend: Children should be three years old by September 1, 2024, and toilet trained. Registration is limited to five students per session, and a lottery system will be utilized to determine placement. The lottery will be held on May 15, 2024, and families will be notified by May 20, 2024, if their child is selected to attend. Families of peer models will need to provide their own transportation to and from school. Please contact Jill Kitzmiller at kitzji@elkhorn.k12.wi.us if you would like further information.
