Communications Corner Fall Recap

What a great start it has been!

Routines are in place, we've had a GREAT first few months!

In the past few months, Ellington Public Schools has welcomed back students, the Board of Education has met with Administration, and our students and staff have attended athletic and school events! We have had a great start to the 22-23 school year. Now that the hustle and bustle of the holiday break is upon us, we wish you a wonderful holiday season and a happy and healthy new year ahead. Enjoy these next few weeks and use the time as a mini-refresh before we welcome everyone back in 2023.

In this edition of Communications Corner, you'll find memories of the first days of school, special recognitions, and exciting press releases highlighting the successes of our district.

You will also find our newest way to communicate with you and share all the fun happenings -- Follow us at @boe.ellington on Instagram!

Warm Regards,

-Jennifer Mullin, Communications Committee Chair
