Students who donate a gift card of $20 or more will earn an extra recess courtesy of Dr. Loy and Mr. Gentz! Plase send gift cards in an envelope with your child's name and teacher.

“Got Your Backpack” program needs your help!
Want to get involved as a volunteer but not sure how? The Backpack program at Ellisville provides specific grocery and toiletry items (i.e. cereal, macaroni, tuna, etc.) to our school families in need. Donated items will be organized in backpacks and sent home with children of school families. This is a once a month request (with a special collection for a Thanksgiving meal). You can sign up for whatever you are comfortable with bringing. We could always use more volunteers (the more the merrier!)
Please contact Nicole Vandesteeg (email@example.com or 314-651-5817) if you would like to participate in the Got Your Backpack program. Thank you for continually helping our Ellisville family!
