Ella Shapiro , daughter of Deborah and Joe Shapiro, is a seventh grader at A.C. Stelle Middle School. She enjoys English and history class, but has found math to be the most fun subject this year. When not at school, Ella likes acting and singing in theater, playing guitar, and has especially enjoyed joining a club volleyball team this year.
 
Ella and her family joined Shomrei Torah Synagogue 5 years ago when she was in fourth grade. She has enjoyed many parts of training for her bat mitzvah, but especially the time she has spent with her Torah trainer Leah. She plans to continue her Jewish life after her Bat Mitzvah by celebrating Shabbat every Friday night with her family and attending Jewish summer camp at Camp Alonim.
