dcasanave ::: First Day Faces

Smiling faces. Warm hugs. Running feet.

Despite the occasional raindrops during drop off, nothing could dampen the spirits of students and parents alike as Lesley Ellis School opened its orange doors to another school year.

Returning students and many new faces gathered in the hallways and classroom of Lesley Ellis. Parents got introduced and reacquainted. Teachers affectionately welcomed each student into their classrooms. The sense of excitement and anticipation was palpable.

First Day
dcasanave ::: New home for Lesley Ellis

It’s official! We’re moving. But not far.

After nearly 30 years at our present location, Lesley Ellis School, is moving to a new location at 34 Winter Street -- just 4 blocks from its current location.

The School has enjoyed a longtime lease with the Town but in the summer of 2017, Lesley Ellis will move into the building currently occupied by Dearborn Academy. Dearborn will be moving to a new location in Newton.

dcasanave ::: Ribbon Cutting

Happy hands flew up in exultation and cheers could be heard up and down Winter Street in East Arlington yesterday as students, faculty, parents, and neighbors officially welcomed Lesley Ellis School to the neighborhood.

Although school has been in session for a few weeks, the ribbon cutting for the School took place yesterday, Wednesday, October 11, at 2:30 p.m.

State senator Cindy Friedman and state representative Sean Garballey will be at Lesley Ellis School on Wednesday, October 11 at 2:30 p.m. to help usher in the start of a new era in Arlington. Or perhaps more accurately, they will be on hand in recognition of a longstanding, educational presence in the Town.

Tell your friends and neighbors. Bring your other children. It's Welcome Wednesday at Lesely Ellis. This is a wonderful, informal opportunity to visit the School and see our students and teachers in action.

dcasanave ::: Town Day

 It was a busy day on the main street in Arlington. Vendors and area businesses set up booths and tents along Mass Ave. and the roadway was shut down to pedestrian traffic only.

Thousands roamed up and down the street, stopping to check out items for sale, chat with old friends, or visit the temporary, out door store fronts of many of the Town shops.
