Dr. FolksThe beginning of this school year is off to a great start and as I visit our schools, it is apparent to me that the students are happy, learning, and actively participating in their educational experiences.  I believe the education of your child in EACS is a team effort.  Parents and school staff are members of the same team with the common goal of achieving academic success for each and every individual student.  Research supports that parent involvement in their child’s education is a critical component to achieving academic success.  Communication between the school and the home is a major factor as well.

Beginning on Tuesday, September 8th, parents will be emailed a weekly progress report for their child.  These reports will be e-mailed every following week throughout the school year.  Please review these reports with your child each week and contact your child’s teacher when you have questions about your child’s academic progress.  The sooner you and the teacher work together as a team to address any problem or concern together, the sooner we can get your child back on the right track to success.

With school back in session, our fall activities are already underway. Many of our students are putting in extra hours after school and on the weekends practicing and competing in the many extra-curricular and co-curricular activities offered in East Allen County Schools.  I encourage you to take advantage of all of the opportunities available to watch our students perform and compete as they represent their school and EACS.

Finally, the cold and flu season will soon be upon us. As a district we continually make information available to help our students and staff make healthy choices and to stay well.  Since we share the responsibility in taking preventative measures to control the spread of disease, please encourage your child to practice healthy habits including the 3 C’s:

  • Cover your cough and sneeze into the crook of your elbow and not your hands.
  • Cleanse your hands frequently.
  • Contain your germs by staying home when you are sick (i.e. fever over 100 degrees, coughing, sore throat, body aches, etc.)

Thank you for partnering with us to help your student(s) to “Dream It. Do It.”.

Dr. Kenneth H. Folks, Superintendent
East Allen County Schools
