Lexington and Washington Elementary Family Support Specialist

My name is Cathie Ellison and I am the Lexington and Washington Family Support Specialist.  I currently live in Jackson Township and am retired from Plain Local Schools where I worked as a high school counselor and English teacher.  I attended Grove City College and the University of Akron.   I love to spend time with my three children ages 5, 10 and 12 and am continually amazed at how fast they are learning and growing.  
As a Family Support Specialist, I am here to support and empower families by guiding and connecting them to resources available in our community.  
Please contact me at Lexington Elementary at 330-823-7570 or at Washington Elementary at 330-823-7586, or by email at
Please check this page often for important community resources and ideas.
