    A Message for the People Who Make Ellis So Special

    I can’t believe this is my last Greensheet message to all of you! These last seven years have been filled with so many wonderful moments. I can’t begin to capture them all here. Instead, let me share some reflections that I offered at our recent Spring Her Forward event.

    Three Wishes for Ellis Students

    As has long been the Ellis tradition, we celebrated all our seniors earlier this month at a brunch in their honor, attended by their families and the members of their sister class, the Class of 2026. This event serves to kick off this very special and important time in the lives of our seniors, as they prepare to transition from their time at Ellis to their next adventures in the world of higher education.

    Building Confidence by Tussling Creatively with Challenges

    As you certainly have figured out by now if you’ve read earlier messages from me, I remain very enthusiastic about, and committed to, our mission at Ellis, which is to educate girls and young women to become bold, authentic, intellectually vibrant changemakers. We strive to have this mission at the core of everything we do at Ellis. To achieve that goal, we spend a lot of time thinking about what we ask of students to do, and how we work with them to support their success.

At Ellis, the skills acquired on the field or the court, and through work with coaches and teammates, complements the problem-solving, time-management, and collaborative work skills learned in the classroom.
