I’m very excited to serve as Principal of East High School. The support we receive from parents, students, staff, administration, and community members is overwhelming and appreciated. For me, this reinforces the importance of an East High School education. I assure you that the role I play as Principal will always be to put students first. I plan to support, nurture and encourage our students and staff to participate in challenging and unique opportunities as we train healthy minds, hearts and bodies for the work of life. Carrying out the highest ideals of character and service in all we do will be focus as well.
I want to remind and emphasize that the expectation and focus of striving to achieve excellence is important; not just academically. Character traits that include trying your best, recognizing that others are important, respect for yourself and others, caring for yourself and others, and honesty in all you do will keep the doors of opportunity wide open for you. Let’s make CARRYING the TORCH a reflection of who we are as citizens of East High School.
I am sure you have noticed many of the fundraisers that have been supported here at East. Clubs and organizations demonstrate dedication and community outreach. Students and advisors donate their time and energy to help people who are less fortunate and to raise awareness on topics that impact our lives. The multitude of opportunities available to students is a huge testament to this community and its enduring support for education. The diversity of our student population has allowed everyone at East an opportunity to experience the unique talents they possess. Our Fall/Spring sports programs will benefit greatly from our brand new sports complex that will serve our student-athletes and community for years to come. I appreciate the positive support parents and community members provide to our student-athletes. East High School continues to field some of the most accomplished and successful sports teams in the area.
Let us stay focused and make time to reflect, to set goals and make adjustments as needed. It is also time to appreciate what we know to be good and positive…as the list is long! I would like to wish all of our students, staff, and families an excellent school year. GO FLAMES!
