The ELF Vision: Inspired Children and Educators

ELF will build support, involvement, and private funding throughout the community for the benefit of our town’s public schools.

The end result of this work will be inspired educators and children of character who are among the nation’s best-prepared. 

By providing excellent tools, opportunities, training and support, Easton will attract and retain the most talented teachers. The Foundation will play an instrumental role in achieving this reputation by funding exciting and innovative grants and enabling the faculty access to state of the art, cutting edge technology and continued professional development opportunities. 

 

Through genuine collaboration, the Foundation will partner with the Easton and Region 9 districts to achieve a shared vision of educational excellence. Open and active communication between the two groups will be the hallmark of our relationship. 

ELF will complement the work of other school support groups such as the Easton PTA by addressing the unmet needs and opportunities at the community level.

We will work together with all stakeholders to facilitate effective and creative holistic solutions, teacher initiatives, and professional development opportunities not otherwise addressed. 

 

Sustained community support of our schools will be forged through ongoing programs, creating a culture in our town where citizens are passionately committed to lifelong education. 

 

ELF will build a reputation as an informed and responsible steward and be viewed by the community as an organization that effectively directs donations of time and money to benefit the children in our schools. This fine reputation will attract capable volunteers and abundant donations to help accomplish our mission.
