Thank you for the overwhelming response to our request for chaperones for the May 9th field trip to Biztown. We were only allowed 18 and had 23; therefore, we did do a drawing to determine who could go. Those parents should have received an email from Biztown informing them as to how to complete the online or site training. Remember this must be completed at least one week prior the field trip.

Registration forms for next year at Ellis went home April 9th. These are due back to the teacher by Friday April 13th. **Two proofs of residency must be attached. This is a copy of two utility bills, mortgage, or lease agreement. Cell phone bills do not count. ** If your child will not be attending Ellis next year, please return the form with a note attached stating where they will be attending.

April. 16-April 27th is the TCAP testing window. ELA testing dates are scheduled for the 13-18th. Social Studies is schedules for April 19th. Math will be on April 23 and 24th, and Science will take place on April 25th. Make-up testing is scheduled for April 20th, 26, and 27th. Please make every effort to have your child here on time for these testing dates. Any child who arrives late can’t be admitted into the classroom until after testing is complete, and makeup testing will need to be arranged.

Mark you calendar for May 8th-

Ellis Middle School will have an Open house for all fifth graders on May 8th at 6:00. This is a good opportunity for students to walk around the building and ask questions about going to sixth grade.
