Welcome to the 2017 - 2018 School Year

The Lesley Ellis School is a vibrant and engaged community. Our families are involved in all aspects of the life of the school and contribute to the school in many different ways. Parents and grandparents volunteer at Parents’ Association events, work on the annual spring fundraiser, assist in classrooms, and contribute to the Lesley Ellis Annual Fund, Heading Home Capital Campaign and the Jon Pfeifer Memorial Funds. It is this dedication and spirit of giving that makes Lesley Ellis such a wonderful community and environment for learning. For this, we are deeply appreciative to our current parents, alumni families, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends. 

There is much to celebrate here in our new home at 34 Winter Street. Through the hard work and efforts of the Advisory Board, dedicated volunteers, faculty and staff (not to mention the architects and construction crew!) we are off to a fabulous beginning here at 34. We invite you to be part of this excitement by making Lesley Ellis a philanthropic priority starting on #GivingTuesday November 28, 2017. Learn more about “34 Days of Giving” below.

To find out more about how to support Lesley Ellis, or if you have additional questions my door is always open! I look forward to speaking with you!

Thank you in advance for your commitment to making Lesley Ellis such a vibrant and vital learning community.

Make a gift to Lesley Ellis

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017 is #GivingTuesday

Launched in 2012, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (U.S.) was designated as a global day dedicated to giving back. Since 2015, Lesley Ellis School has become more involved in this initiative—last year 22% of our total giving to the Lesley Ellis Annual Fund (LEAF) happened on #GivingTuesday.

You may give online here. Thank you for your generosity and support.

What is "34 Days of Giving" at Lesley Ellis and why start on November 28th?

Now that we are in our home at 34 Winter Street, we thought if fitting to tie the number “34” into #GivingTuesday as there are 34 days between November 28 and December 31 (close of calendar year giving).
