Welcome to Early County Elementary School!  The early years of a child’s education are often the most important.  At ECES we lay the educational foundation for the world’s future engineers, doctors, lawyers, teachers, soldiers, athletes, and members of the workforce.  We are also very proud of our students and teachers and we believe that the Early County School System provides the best educational option for students in our area. Therefore, our theme for the 2017-2018 is “Be a Bobcat.”  

It is our belief that good, open communication between home and school is vital to the success of our students as well as our educational programs.  Parents are the primary educators in a child’s life, so it is very important that collaboration and cooperation exist with parents and teachers. 

 Parents and school personnel are partners in the important job of educating the children of this community.  We welcome your participation and support during the school year and encourage your membership in the Parent/ Teacher Organization (P.T.O.) and School Council.  Working together, we will be able to make great strides to provide the best education for the children.  We look forward to a cherished relationship with all of the students and parents as we prepare to educate the youth of Early County Elementary School.


In a safe and caring environment, Early County School System will provide engaging and challenging educational opportunities to equip students for success.
Everyone Committed to Student Success

We believe that…


  • Children learn in different ways and at different rates but they can all learn in a safe and orderly environment.

  • Establishing positive relationships inside and outside of the school is critical to our success.

  • A “family atmosphere” and a nurturing, engaging, and supportive environment benefit students and staff.

  • Risk-taking and innovation are the foundations of student and staff engagement.  

  • School should be a “happy place” where everyone feels valued, heard, and connected.

  • Students and teachers are more than test scores and each person has something to contribute to the school.

  • Learning is a shared responsibility among all students, teachers, staff, parents, and community members.
