ELESPA Celebrates 10th Anniversary

The Elk Lake Educational Support Personal Association (ELESPA) will host a reception for members on Wednesday, November 15 to celebrate their 10-year Anniversary. On October 11, 1996 the support staff of the Elk Lake School filed a petition for Representation with the PA Labor Relations Board. This was done in order to schedule an election to determine the exclusive representative for collective bargaining. The election was held on January 23, 1997 and it was determined that the Elk Lake ESPA would be represented by the PA State Education Association. On Saturday, March 1, 1997 the first official meeting of the association was held.

Over the years the association has averaged 60 members. These members include the food service, maintenance, teacher’s associates and secretarial staff of the Elk Lake School District.

The members have raised over $20,000 during these 10 years to award scholarships to Elk Lake seniors. In addition, for the last six years, five seniors have been given a $100 savings bond to honor them as "Good Ambassadors" of the Elk Lake School District. The ELESPA has also contributed toward purchases of two laptop computers, which are awarded to students with perfect attendance in the high school.

Elk Lake ESPA’s prime concern is the education of the children in the Elk Lake School District. They work hard to make Elk Lake a safe, clean and friendly environment for the children to learn in.
