The Builders Club and Honor Society combined forces to help others during the holidays. The students made a "Sock Tree", gathering socks, gloves, and toboggans which will be donated to First Family to distribute to families in need. The groups also gathered toys, which will be given to Toys for Tots.

The Ellis faculty and staff were pleasantly surprised when they arrived at school Wednesday morning and found a table covered with delicious treats prepared by thoughtful parents. Both salty and sweet goodies were available along with various beverage choices. A heart-felt thank you is extended to all who helped!

We will be holding try-outs for the 2010-2011 Jr. High Baseball Team Wednesday, Dec. 1st and Thursday, Dec. 2nd. Athletes must be present both days of try-outs to make the team, unless they are playing basketball for the school. Athletes should report to the baseball field directly after school, and try-outs will last till about 4:30-5:00, depending on how many athletes we have come. Athletes also were given a form to be signed by their parents that should be turned in by the start of try-outs. Failure to do this will result in not making the team. We encourage everyone to try-out, but remember that we cannot keep everyone. Cuts will be made after Thursday, and the team roster should be posted at school on Friday. We hope to see you there and Good Luck.
