Tradition of Excellence!
Ellis Middle School has continued its tradition as a state award-winning school. State Superintendent of Education Dr. Chris Koch presented Ellis Principal Hayes with a certificate naming Ellis to the Illinois Honor Roll, a state program aimed at recognizing schools for continued academic progress.
“Making the Illinois Honor Roll represents the hard work and dedication put forth in the classroom and at home everyday,’’ said Superintendent Koch. “It is an achievement that principals, teachers, parents and students should celebrate together.’’
Ellis was recognized for an award because 81 percent of students met or exceeded state standards.
