Ennis Community Children's School look to take learning beyond four walls

ENNIS – The Ennis Community Children’s School has been a part of the community since 1982, when it was first founded to serve the needs of Ennis’ youngest members. Their mission is to increase children’s perception of the world and become enthusiastic learners. One way they are looking to do that is through an outdoor learning environment.

Mark Odegard still remembers his first time in Ennis – as a child in 1945, driving through on a trip to Yellowstone National Park. Later, his family would come out for a week every summer to fish and stay in the Riverside Cabins. After school and a career that took him all over the world, he made a more permanent move to Ennis in 2005.

Brian Brocious has lived in the Madison Valley for eight years after moving from his home state, Michigan. A desire for wide open spaces and access to the great outdoors just steps from his front door is what sent him west. “I enjoy the public land access,” he said. “I can be in the mountains or on the water within minutes.”

“I’m just so thankful that I got the opportunity to be a senior companion,” said Ronna Devereaux. “It’s just a wonderful program to keep people in their homes and make sure their needs are met, and to be able to visit with them and get to know them.”
