From Wednesday, March 14, to Friday, April 13, the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools will raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) for the second annual $$ for Change Fundraiser. The three divisions will go head-to-head as they compete to raise money for LLS and vie to be named the top fundraising division. With an average of six people dying in the United States of blood cancer every hour, $$ for Change will aid research into Leukemia and Lymphoma treatment and help patients and their families navigate their diagnosis.
Four Ellis students, Julia Freudenberg, Class of 2024; Grayson Honig, Class of 2023; Samantha Honig, Class of 2021; and Dania Stewart, Class of 2023, competed at the 2018 Pennsylvania Alpine Racing Association (PARA) State Skiing Championships in late February and early March. After receiving enough points in races throughout the ski season, the students qualified for the PARA Championships as part of the Western Pennsylvania Race Club (WRPC), a Seven Springs-based team.
