Ellsworth Elementary Middle School

EEMS IS AWARDED A "WALKING SCHOOL BUS" GRANT

Ellsworth Elementary-Middle School is excited to announce to the community that we have been awarded a $5000 grant from the the Maine Bicycle Coalition (a division of the CDC) to form a daily walking school bus program. 

We will be forming safe routes, training volunteers and encouraging students that live within walking distance to join a walking school bus in their neighborhood.  Each walking school bus will be lead by adult volunteers.  

The first order of business is to host a community meeting on February 3rd from 5:00 to 6:30 in the EEMS cafeteria.  Parents and interested community members are invited to attend.  There will be a representative from the Bike Coalition to facilitate the dissemination of information, answer questions and gather feedback from the community.  

If you have any questions you may contact Mr. Norwood at dnorwood@ellsworthschools.org
