Homework Packets

Homework packets will be coming home each Monday.  The packet will consist of two math assignments and two language assignments.  These papers will be review work in order to keep the skills “fresh” in your child's mind.  The packets will be due on Friday of each week, so your child can work on these when their schedules permit.  This is a new school-wide requirement.

Friday, October 7th is Ellison's, "Wild About Ellison" Carnival. To get in the spirit, this week is wacky week.

Monday: Lazy Lion Day (wear your pajamas)
Tuesday: Wild Warthog Day (wild hair day)
Wednesday: Maniac Monkey Day (mix & match)
Thursday: BATer Up (wear your favorite sports/team shirt)
Friday: Loyal Leopard Day (wear your Braves wear)
