Bill Harris, Principal
Welcome to the 2013-14 school year! It was nice to see many of you at the Popsicles with the Principal earlier this month. 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 parting staff members: Ms. McKenzie (retired), Ms. Murphy (to Allen), and Dr. Powell (to Pioneer); we wish them well in their new endeavors. Additionally, please join me in welcoming our newest Eberwhite staff member:
Ms. Jeri Schneider- Media Specialist with Ms. Postema

Your child’s teacher and classroom placement are being sent home on August 26th. Placements are based on our enrollment through Friday 8/23. We’ve conscientiously placed students in the classroom that are best for them based on a number of factors. If you need to discuss your child’s assignment, please do so with me, after the first two weeks of school.
Don’t forget about our “Meet and Greet” on Wednesday, 8/28 from 4:00p.m. until 5:00p.m. Students and teachers will have an informal opportunity to meet each other at this time. Then, I’ll see you at the Flag Raising Ceremony on September 3rd for the beginning of a great school year.
Bill Harris, Eberwhite Principal
