Ellsworth Hill Updates 5.24.13
No School on Monday: We will be honoring Memorial Day. Have a safe holiday weekend!
A Great Visit: We were so excited to welcome Evamere’s first graders as they visited Ellsworth Hill today. Our second graders greeted them with songs, performances and student leadership. This year’s class was proud to show Ellsworth Hill to next year’s class!
PTO Carnival: Hooray! It’s almost carnival time! The carnival will take place June 3 with a rain date of June 4. Look for an informational letter about the PTO Carnival in your student’s backpack on Tuesday, May 28.
Don’t Throw Them Away! The Ubumi orphanage that Ellsworth Hill has supported in the past is in need of school supplies. If your students would like to donate their used school supplies at the end of the year rather than throwing them away, collection boxes are available in the main office.
Fun Facts: Did you know that Ellsworth Hill was able to save 28 trees, 11, 515 gallons of water, 98 pounds of air pollutants and 6,744 kilowatts of electricity by recycling paper? Thanks for helping us reduce, reuse and recycle!

Become a Legislator for a Day: State Representative Kristina D. Roegner is sponsoring the “Become a legislator for a Day” reading program through the Ohio House of Representatives. The program is designed to encourage children in grades 1 through 6 to read and become familiar with their local libraries. Students may pick up a “Become a Legislator for the Day” bookmark at any participating library. Students must record five books they have read on the back of their bookmark and return it to the library by Saturday, June 8. One lucky participant will be selected at random to become an honorary legislator for the day. Honorary legislators will receive a VIP tour of the state capital, lunch, as well as participate in a mock legislative session.
