Message from the Principal

Friday, February 16, 2018

Greetings Ellis Eagles,

It is with great joy and excitement that I write this letter, knowing I am returning to a community I have grown to absolutely love and adore! As you may have heard, my principalship at Ellis was interrupted by a family emergency I needed to attend to last August. It was with a very heavy heart that I wrote to you all late last summer, notifying you of my departure from DPS to support my family in California.

I am extremely thankful to share that my family situation has stabilized and has allowed me to pursue my dream job; returning as the school leader of Ellis! In my absence, there have been many wonderful events, initiatives and efforts that have continued to move our school toward realizing our vision that every child define, pursue and achieve their dreams! I am thrilled to be returning soon to continue this vital mission and to work together as a community to keep moving us forward!

I will be resuming the role of Principal at Ellis for the 2018-2019 school year. In the meantime, feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns that you have.

For me, leading is a matter of the heart and I cannot express in words how full of joy my heart is as I return to Ellis and to our amazing community.

In Gratitude,

Nichole Whiteman
