Principal Intro | 4th of July Parade | 6th grade orientation dates
The Eliot-Hine PTO would like to welcome Principal Marlene Magrino.
Ms. Magrino is excited to join the Eliot-Hine community and is already planning with the leadership team for an exciting year. She is committed to creating an open and welcoming environment for families and our community and envisions a school where students love to learn and teachers love to teach. Her instructional philosophy is influenced in part by her experiences as a young student. Her early academic experience included highly engaging and personalized academics shaped by in depth class projects, engaging field trips, and close relationships with her teachers. She believes the IB program at Eliot-Hine creates a perfect opportunity to extend these types of educational opportunities to all of our students, and she looks forward to building on the hard work we have already started. In her words, Eliot-Hine is a small school with incredible potential to transform into a model middle school in the district. Ms. Magrino has been a resident of Washington, DC and active in the education community here for 20 years. She has a deep passion for educational equity across the district. She’s overseen schools during major construction projects and understands both the potential challenges and opportunities that may result from Eliot-Hine's modernization project over the next two years. She looks forward to building relationships with our Eliot-Hine families, community’s elementary and secondary schools, and neighborhood leaders. Dates and times for Meet & Greets will be shared soon. We hope you’ll come out to meet with her in person and share your hopes and dreams for your children and Eliot-Hine Middle School.
The Eliot-Hine Junk Art Club has an exhibit this summer at the Hill Center's Young Artists Gallery.

The exhibit runs through the end of August. The Hill Center is located at 921 Pennsylvania Ave., SE
