Welcome to the start of the 2015-2016 school year, a very exciting time for not only educators, but also for students and parents, as well. Teachers have been busy setting up their classrooms, and I have been busy making sure everything is ready to go for our eagles exciting return on Monday, August 17th. It is my hope that my eagles are well rested and ready for an exciting new year!
Students are required to wear uniforms consisting of navy or khaki pants, shorts, jumpers, or skirts with red, white navy blue, light blue, or royal blue collard shirts. Parents, we are asking that you please purchase your student(s) a backpack, 1 box of facial tissue, 1 box of 1 quart size storage bags, and 48 pencils. The school is providing notebooks, crayons, scissors, glue, rulers, and paper.
"Meet the Teacher Night" will be held Thursday, August 13th from 6:30 pm-8:00 pm. You will have the chance to meet your child's teacher, visit their classroom, and place an order for an Ellington t-shirt for school spirit days. If you are a parent of one of our CD and Head Start baby eagles you will meet your child's teacher on Tuesday, August 18th.
I look forward to seeing all of my eagles on Monday, August 17th!!
