Parent Connection Expo 2022

Join us on Saturday, March 26th from 11am to 2pm at Elkhart High School (2608 California Road, Elkhart, IN) for our first annual Parent Connection Expo! Childcare will be available (ages 5-12), interpreters will be available, and we’ll have great door prizes, including a 65″ television (must be an ECS parent to win)!


Parents can participate in helpful breakout sessions with community partners and ECS experts, then meet with representatives from various departments at ECS, as well as community partners to ask questions and learn about opportunities.


As our most important partner, we want you to know that providing your child with an excellent educational experience is a top priority for Elkhart Community Schools. We hope you will join us to meet with the many partners who support our students behind the scenes!



Thank you to the Community Foundation of Elkhart County, Martin’s Supermarkets, and the Head Start of Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties for their sponsorship of this event and support of our families!
