As the 2013-2014 school year quickly comes to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our parents, students and staff for another successful year.  We have all worked hard to help support the goals of Vision 2016 by providing our students with challenging and rigorous opportunities to stimulate their thinking and motivate their minds in order for them to reach their fullest potential.    During the summer, I ask that you continue to work with our students as they strive for excellence by having them read each day for at least thirty minutes.  Take a few minutes out of your busy schedule and listen to them read to you and you can read to them.  This will help build their fluency, confidence and comprehension.    

On behalf of the entire staff of Ellington, we hope that you and your family have a safe and enjoyable summer!!!!!!
