“The Elevator to success is broken, take the stairs” is a quote that stuck with me through my years here at Ellington from the amazing mother of black Hollywood Ms.Jenifer Lewis, that I had the pleasure of meeting while here at Ellington.The time has come for me to leave this place that helped to ultimately shape the person who I am today. With that we still need your help ! If you didn’t know, Duke Ellington is an under funded school in DCPS therefore a lot of our specialty teachers are paid out of our in house fundraising. Included in this fundraiser is a celebration on October 26th here at Ellington for our March For the Arts extravaganza. My goal for this year is $5,000 so please help in anyway you can in support of my senior year and arts education. Thank You !
TO SUPPORT YOUNG THEATRE ARTISTS ON THE MOVE
CELEBRATE WITH US ON OCTOBER 26 AT OUR ANNUAL
MARCH FOR THE ARTS FESTIVAL
ALL ARE WELCOME!
Georgetown’s history of mystery doesn’t deter counselors from setting up Camp Ellington at the historic Duke Ellington School of the Arts campus. All of the superstitious locals warn against it, but the young counselors pay little heed to the old timers. Campers try to enjoy activities like moon bounces, sack races, camp stories, delicious food and costume contests*, but mysteriously they keep disappearing. “Who will survive and what will be left of them?”
Come join the fun and help solve the mystery at Camp Ellington on Saturday, October 26th from 10-1pm. Guests will participate in an arts festival and March through Georgetown with performances and events from classic horror films. “Be afraid. Be very afraid.” Fun for the whole family! We’re celebrating and “evil loves to party!”
*Come dressed in costume to enter our costume contest! Extra points given to entries dressed as their favorite horror film character.
