Congratulations to four Middle and Upper School students who took honors at the 76th Pittsburgh Regional Science and Engineering Fair at Heinz Field on Friday, March 27, 2015. Special thanks go to Ellis faculty members Kim Mechling and Erica Holtgraver for supporting the efforts of Ellis students in science.
Ellis 5th graders took part in an annual celebration of Rome on Thursday, April 15. Through this day-long celebration, students came to more fully understand the daily lives, history, and culture of ancient Rome, which the students have been exploring in history, literature, world language, and art classes. Rome Day activities included public speaking, engineering wooden arches and catapults and catapult launching contest, racing chariots on the Ellis field, and dressing in traditional Roman togas.
