In like a lion! I can’t believe we are already in the third month of the New Year. This month, our students will participate in various activities that will recognize the events listed above. In addition to the above recognition, we want you to know that we have started our after school enrichment program in math and reading for students in grades two, three, four, and five. This program will be held every Tuesday and Thursday. Students will have dinner, be provided with two hours of academic instruction, receive a snack, and then be transported home. If you would like your child to participate, please call the school to see if we have anymore available slots.
If you have a child who will be four on or before September 1st, please register him/her for our Child Development Program. Students who are currently enrolled in Head Start are strongly encouraged to register their child for this program.
Please don’t forget to participate in our upcoming events: Girls Summit on March 7th, IZLC Math Bowl on the 14th, and the Kids Fair which will be held at Burke High School on Sunday, March 22nd.
Since Spring will soon be arriving, we will add a “School Spirit Day” to our monthly calendar. Students will be permitted to wear their “Ellington” tee shirts and jeans on designated days and for field trips. All students will receive an order form to purchase a tee-shirt.
Finally, the Charleston County School District is committed to being a premier school district in the state of South Carolina and the nation. As we continue to move forward in this journey to excellence, the district is compiling data from stakeholders to determine where we are as a district and to set realistic, measurable goals for continuous improvement.
