In an effort to create a fun forum for Eliot-Hine MS feeder families to gather, this summer Friday book swap series was born! Join feeder families and members of the community for a picnic and fun every Friday. Bring a book, leave with another. All ages and levels welcome. Everyone is welcome to join, even if you do not have a book to bring. There are extras! Contact Amber.Gove@gmail.com with any questions.
This year Eliot-Hine MS joined other DC Public Schools for the 16th Capitol Hill 4th of Julyparade. Accompanied by Mayor Bower, Charles Allen, and their feeder schools, Eliot-Hine was so excited to meet members of the community and spread the word about their International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. Join current parents/families and members of the community on Mondays for gardening 6- 7:30 PM or Fridays in Lincoln Park for the summer book swap. All ages and levels welcome!
You are invited to join Eliot-Hine’s Mondays in the Garden as we beautify the school grounds and tend our pollinator garden.

Eliot-Hine MS celebrated their 8th-graders at the 2017 Promotion last week. The students were recognized for their hard work and accomplishments achieved during their middle school career. A special congratulations to Valedictorian Nafisa Weeks! Some high schools our Eliot-Hine graduations will attend are McKinley Tech HS, Banneker HS, Eastern HS, Duke Ellington School for the Arts, and Phelps HS.
Eastern High School Principal, Sah Brown, was the keynote speaker for the ceremony. He discussed the all that the graduating students had already overcome and the numerous future success we look forward to hearing about as they move to high school. Best of luck, graduates!
Eliot-Hine hosted a vibrant International Faire on Friday, June 2 open to the community. This event aimed to present students with a global perspective and share more about their new International Baccalaureate framework. There were fun activities such as temporary henna tattoos, Chinese calligraphy, and Arabic script writing. There were also stations featuring fun books and apps focusing on other countries and cultures like Tutu’s storybooks and an Argentinian tango demonstration. Students and families also learned about programs within Eliot-Hine that pushes a global perspective, such as the Model UN program and the DC Global Education’s Embassy Adoption Program. Thank you for such a beautiful event!
Twelve of Eliot-Hine’s 6th, 7th, and 8th graders were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society during a ceremony recently. This is the first cohort of inductees at Eliot-Hine, and the group is off to a great start getting involved in the community! The NJHS members were ushers at the 2017 Promotion ceremony and helped with end-of-year festivities. The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship.
Five main purposes have guided chapters of NJHS from the beginning: to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to render service; to promote leadership; to encourage responsible citizenship; and to develop character in the students of secondary schools. We look forward to all the support this special group will provide moving forward!
This family-friendly and educational event is next Friday, June 2nd. Join us for a very fun night of cultural dance performances, play games from other countries, get a henna tattoo, taste delicious international cuisine, and more. All are invited to join us!
