Senior Night

It was a beautiful evening to recognize the Ellet football, cheerleader and band seniors! I'm sure all of the families feel so proud of these young men and women (I know I do)! It's just hard to believe they are seniors all ready and it causes a big lump in my throat.
Kudos to our chairperson, Kelley Stillman for organizing every detail, Amy McPherson and Dawn Mihailovick for making the lovely flower pins for the moms, Mike Burton for being our photographer (his photos will be available at a later date) and Angie Keeling for capturing memories with my camera!

First Game

It was a beautiful evening to kick off the Ellet Football season. Our Marching Orangemen looked so sharp in their brand new uniforms and it was nice to have the 8th graders from Hyre join our band on the field. This new album for the 2014-15 school year contains practice, pregame, Springfield Marching Band, our half-time show, the Ice Bucket challenge, and a little football!
