Scott M. Ellis Elementary School
Welcome Letter from Peter Mahan, Elementary Principal
Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to all students and families, and a special welcome to those students who are joining Scott M. Ellis for the first time! I am excited to begin a new school year that will be rich with learning and full of fun. Scott M. Ellis opens for students in grades 1-5 on September 4th and will follow the regular school schedule (arrival at 7:55 and dismissal at 2:25). Kindergarten students will begin school on September 5th at 7:55 am and will dismiss at 11:30 am. Kindergarten students will have a full day of school on September 6th.
This year we welcome back several faculty members. Ms. Pam Germain-Asam and Ms. Susan Somers are returning to Scott M. Ellis and will be teaching our third and fourth grade students (respectively). We are so pleased to have them return to our school, and we know that students will enjoy being part of these classrooms! We are also excited to welcome back Ms. Pam Hollinde as our Technology Coach! As a coach, Ms. Hollinde will assist all elementary teachers in developing technology skills that can be used to enhance our classroom programs.
Scott M. Ellis will have a new school librarian for the coming year, and I look forward to introducing this staff member in the coming weeks. We would also like to welcome Brian Mazza, our Assistant District Principal. Mr. Mazza will be located at Scott M. Ellis, and will support our students through his work with our K-12 instructional and athletic programs. Mr. Mazza is eager to be known by the students of Scott M. Ellis and will be visible throughout our school.
The Scott M. Ellis September newsletter will be on our website during the last week of August. Families needing a paper copy can obtain one in the lobby once school is in session.
All of us at Scott M. Ellis are looking forward to the opening days of school with great anticipation! We hope you are too. Enjoy the rest of your summer and we’ll see you soon.
