What's Happening

Thanks to our friends at Massachusetts Division of Fisheries & Wildlife for teaching our School-Age kids how to fish this week! After instruction and some practice on land, they got to cast a line in Jamaica Pond. You wouldn’t know that most of them had never fished before –they reeled in 4 fish! 
A HUGE thank you to our friends at Deloitte, KPMG and The Westin Copley for donating backpacks filled with school supplies for our K1 graduates and School-Age kids - They’re excited to start the new school year!
Congratulations to the 2016 graduating class at Ellis – the K1 students celebrated moving on to Kindergarten with their teachers and families with a Dr. Seuss themed party!
