If you are new to the Charles Ellis Family, our Festival of Lights is traditionally an all-school gathering and sing-along to honor winter and celebrations from around the globe. This year the event will have a virtual twist . . . of course.
Booster-thon is Charles Ellis' most exciting and largest fundraiser. It is sponsored by the PTA. Every child has the opportunity to participate, and all receive a tee-shirt (prized spirit gear that can be worn to school on Fridays). Typically the children gather at Daffin Park for a celebratory fun run finale. There's music, cheering, and all the excitement that comes along with a great big outdoor hurrah! This year's event will be virtual, but we know the Booster-thon crew will bring the excitement and energy as they always do!
