Today, Marlene Magrino was named the new Eliot-Hine MS principal for SY18-19. She was chosen after a panel of staff, parents, and community members gathered to interview candidates and provide feedback on the process. View the full appointment letter here.
Principal Magrino comes with experience from teaching at Washington Middle School for Girls, serving many roles including Assistant Principal at DC Preparatory Academy, and founding Monument Academy Public Charter School (a weekday boarding school serving students who have had or might have contact with the foster care system).
We will be reaching out soon with opportunities to meet Principal Magrino this summer and to hear about her vision for Eliot-Hine MS!

This school-year, DCPS Global Education partnered with DCPS’s six International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools to recognize students and families at the first annual IB Showcase. Eliot-Hine MS is one of two DCPS IB middle schools in the city. At this recent IB showcase, EH students and families viewed projects through a gallery walk and voted on their favorite IB work products. EH students’ projects ranged from science fair projects, community projects, art, and student writing.
In addition to supporting event set-up and clean-up, Eliot-Hine students were also present to share their Community Projects and receive recognition on stage. Each school honored students with Learner Profile awards and Outstanding IB Assignment awards. Parents and community members were also honored with an Outstanding Program Advocate Award. All in all, it was an exciting night to celebrate DCPS’s IB World Schools!

Join DCPS Facilities Team as they present the latest on Eliot-Hine’s modernization project. They will cover design developments, summer construction plans, and project timeline. This is the final modernization meeting for this school year.
Check out the presentation from Eliot-Hine’s 5/15/2018 School Improvement Team (SIT) meeting. It includes details on the project schedule (see below), design process, summer plans, and schematic designs. The presentation is also full of draft mock renderings! Eliot-Hine MS community members can provide feedback via this survey .
Survey responses will be used to guide the next meeting: “Schematic Design – Feedback Review” SIT meeting on Wednesday, May 23rd- 4:30 PM. Full modernization project details for Eliot-Hine are on this Facilities modernization page.
Recently Principal Young shared this announcement with the Eliot-Hine community. Eliot-Hine MS is starting their search for a new principal for School Year 2018-2019. A principal panel comprised of Eliot-Hine staff, current parents, feeder school parents, and community members will determine questions and interview principal candidates starting next week.
This survey was created to gather input on strategic planning for the upcoming school year at Eliot-Hine. Please share your thoughts on what is most important for the continued progress of our community and the selection of the new principal. If you have any questions, please reach out to Eliot-Hine’s Director of Strategy & Logistics, Ophelia.Morgan@dc.gov.

A letter was sent home to Eliot-Hine community earlier this month with some updates on Eliot-Hine’s modernization. View the full letter here. Although the timeline for the modernization remains the same, there is a change in the swing space plans. Eliot-Hine Ms will now swing in the trailers that Maury currently occupies rather than an internal swing. This will create a better “buffer zone” between active construction and learning. From this new outcome, Facilities is conducting a survey to gather feedback from the Eliot-Hine community (including Eliot-Hine feeders) and Maury ES. Please share your feedback here.
Facilities held community meetings for both Eliot-Hine MS and Maury ES about how these changes may impact them. There will be one more Eliot-Hine meeting on Wednesday, April 18th in the library from 5 – 6 PM. Please contact Oni Hinton from the Facilities Team with any questions: Oni.Hinton@dc.gov or cell phone: 202-907-8358.
Congrats to these Eliot-Hine MS Honor Roll students!
