Children at schools with a broad base of involved parents perform remarkably better in many different measurements of success.

Your time is greatly valued. Here are the many volunteer areas where we welcome your support.

Annual Fun Run

Our annual school fundraiser is the “Fun Run Colt Stampede.” Students recieve pledges and donations to run laps around the ELHS track. Many parent volunteers are needed in planning and holding the event.

Grounds Day

Keeping our school grounds in good shape takes many hands. Pitch in during our bi-annual Grounds Days held at the beginning and end of each school year.

Duty-Free Lunch

It's back! We are excited that volunteers can be back in the building to help cover lunches for our teachers.The first duty-free lunch is on Thursday, December 17 during the PTO-sponsored luncheon and will continue to be held monthly in the new year.

Every month, we like to give our teachers a much-deserved lunch without their everyday duties in the cafeteria! To make this happen, we need volunteers to help monitor the kids in the cafeteria. Sign-up!
