Dear Parents, Staff, and Community Partners:

Dr. FolksSummer break is here!  The 2016-17 school year is in the record books and summer school is now underway.  Many of our schools have programs providing students the opportunity to enrich their learning or earn credits toward graduation during summer break.  Speaking of graduation, all five EACS high schools held their commencement ceremonies on graduation weekend, June 2-4.  I want to give a special shout out to our School Board Members and Assistant Superintendents.  Thanks to Board Members Gayle Etzler, Terry Jo Lightfoot, Paulette Nellems, Chris Baker, Todd Buckmaster, Tim Hines, and Board President Bob Nelson for attending all of the graduations.  Thanks also to Assistant Superintendents Marilyn Hissong, Deborah Watson, and Kirby Stahly for their participation in all five graduations as well.       

As I shared with you in my spring web message, I will be retiring on June 30th.  Even though I am looking forward to my next adventure, I know that soon, all of you will be gearing up for the 2017-18 school year in East Allen County Schools.  Here are some important dates to mark on your calendars in preparation of the new school year:

  • On-line Registration from Monday, July 24 – August 4 for currently enrolled students
  • All Elementary/Secondary Schools Registration EXCEPT Southwick Elementary, Paul Harding Junior High and East Allen University
    • Monday, July 31, Noon – 7:00 p.m.
    • Tuesday, August 1, - 8:00 a.m. – Noon
  • Southwick Elementary, Paul Harding Junior High and East Allen University
    • Tuesday, August 1, Noon – 7:00 p.m.
    • Wednesday, August 2, 8:00 a.m. – Noon
  • First Day of Student Attendance
    • Tuesday, August 8, 2017

Again, thank you for the opportunity to serve as your superintendent.  I will miss the students, staff, and community members that I have gotten to know during my time here!  I want to extend my best wishes to everyone who is a part of East Allen County Schools!  Even greater things lie ahead for our schools, including the district-wide building project designed to make our schools safer and provide improved instructional facilities.  Construction is already underway at several schools.  Please pardon the construction over the next two years and keep in mind how much our facilities will be improved when everything is complete!  Thanks again!  And as always, Dream It. Do It.!

Sincerely,

Dr. Kenneth H. Folks
Superintendent of Schools
