Thank you to all the participants for joining us for our Second Annual Halloween Hustle.  Through your participation and our generous sponsors, we were able to raise over $22,000!  That money will go directly back to the school in the form of grants this spring!  And, a big congratulations to Carpenter School for coming out and winning the highest participation award!  Way to go, Carpenter!

Thanks to all of you who have attended any of our fundraisers in the last year!  Through your efforts and participation, we have raised over $35,000 to support innovative, imaginative and educational programs for our children across the district.

Watch our video message from D64 principals to learn how your donation to ELF is making a difference in our schools. ELF grants have provided our schools with unique training opportunities, collaboration stations, stand-up desks, 21st century learning centers, broadcasting rooms, and more!

Next Meeting - October 16th 

Franklin LRC


We are looking for a few more ELF's to help out on our board. 

Not sure about the time commitment?  It's ok!  You can help a lot or a little.  Because every little bit helps! 

Come see how you can be a part of something wonderful and join us for a meeting.  One meeting doesn't equate to a commitment.
