Ellis student Stephanie Somlo, Class of 2022, placed tenth overall out of more than one hundred students at the MATHCOUNTS competition at the A.W. Beattie Career Center on Saturday, February 11. Stephanie and the Ellis team went head-to-head against local schools to test their mathematical, probability, and problem-solving skills.
Ellis students in grade 1 went above and beyond expectations as they raised $1,800 for the Kids Campaign to End Hunger benefiting the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, totaling 9,000 meals for those in need. Students completed extra chores, knocked on neighbor’s doors, donated from their piggy banks, solicited family and friends, and even challenged grandma to a round of cards to raise each and every dollar to help local families battle hunger.
