OPENING DAY LETTER
Welcome to the 2012-13 school year! It was nice to see many of you at the Popsicles with the Principal last week. I hope this letter finds everyone enjoying the last couple weeks of the summer and sharing my excitement for the upcoming year.
While the Eberwhite staff is busy making final preparations for a great start, we do have a few changes to let you know about. We extend our best wishes to our parting staff members: Ms. Barnes, Ms. Gouin, Ms. Marshall, Ms. Othman, and Ms. Bert; we wish them well in their new endeavors. Please join me in welcoming our new Eberwhite staff members:
Tristan Diver- teaching PE along with Ms. VanRyn
Brad Haeflinger- teaching in the WISD special education program
Valerie Kelly- teaching assistant
Nat Powell- media specialist with Ms. Postema
