It's time to celebrate Ellington Elementary, and if you were a former Ellington Eagle, now is your chance to do just that.

At the end of the 2017-2018 school year, Ellington Elementary will officially close its doors at 3001 Lindell Street. With the new learning communities opening in the fall, there is no need to continue operating at the current site. And to commemorate, Ellington will be hosting a celebration party and all Ellington alumni are invited to attend.

"Celebrate Ellington" will be Saturday, April 7th from 9 am - 11 am. All who attended Ellington are invited to visit the school, see the old classrooms, and share stories of attending Ellington.

Ellington will change from a K-3 school to K-2 at the end of the year. However, Baldwin will be closing for good and in the fall that will be the start of the new redistricting lines that was announced a few months back. To find out which school your child will be attending next year, click on the K-5 Learning Communities link on the QPS website.
