On October 30, 2014, the David Ellis School family went pink-pink shirts, pink caps, pink sweaters, pink shoes, pink hearts, pink ribbons-all over the school-even pink strawberry cake baked by the cafeteria manager, Janice Green to raise awareness and funds to fight Breast Cancer. Acting on the suggestion of Michelle Hall, a second grade teacher, the school’s social worker, Betty Skeete, a third grade teacher, Itonya Dismond and the Dean of Discipline, Linda Cruz brought the idea to life. They spearheaded the awareness program, engaging the entire Ellis community-principal, faculty staff, students and family members. They raised $469.
