Dear Ellington Family –

The Ellington way is to be in service to others, understanding that each role and contribution to the whole is equal in value. This is how Ellington gives thanks and it is our innate nature.

This past Veterans Day at all five schools, Ellington staff and students honored those who served and modeled the Ellington way. The general sentiment was captured at Ellington High Schools' breakfast and ceremony.

Honoring Our Veterans 2018

As you give thanks this long weekend and throughout this joyous holiday season, let us continue to honor our veterans by modeling ever so proudly "the Ellington way".

Happy Thanksgiving –

Dr. Scott V. Nicol
Superintendent of Schools
