THE LIFE OF AN ELLISON EAGLE
Activities and Clubs
An Ellison education spans beyond the walls of a traditional classroom to expose students to cultural, athletic, and arts experiences. We introduce new after-school clubs several times a year and offer a variety of seminars that place a focus on core teaching principles at Ellison like the arts, science, and critical thinking skills.
While enjoying nature walks on the Ellison Campus, students gather natural materials to be used to create various craft projects. This club merges art and environmental science and is always a big hit! Students also planted Mums in our Only One You Rock Garden.
