Dear Ellington Family -
This year, we begin anew.
T.S. Elliot wrote, "For last year's words belong to last year's language. And next year's words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning."
Another voice may imply different or separate. Yet, I believe that separation is an illusion, that another voice is our collective intent and that 2020 will be a year when the Ellington Family grows stronger together.
Each day we begin anew. From teachers to students to parents to the greater Ellington community, last year's language is just that and next year's contributions will be our Ellington Voice.
On behalf of the Ellington Board of Education, I wish you all a Happy New Year...where endings are beginnings.
Dr. Scott V. Nicol, Superintendent of Schools
