Dr. FolksMay is here and the end of the 2015-16 school year is quickly approaching.  The last day of school is Wednesday, May 25th.  Graduation ceremonies for our five high schools are scheduled as follows:

Wednesday, June 1 - 7:00 p.m. – New Haven High School @ the Coliseum
Thursday, June 2 - 7:00 p.m. – Leo High School @ the Coliseum
Friday, June 3 - 7:30 p.m. – East Allen University @ IPFW
Saturday, June 4 -  10:00 a.m. – Woodlan High School @ the school
Saturday, June 4 -  2:00 p.m. – Heritage High School @ the school

High school graduation is an exciting time for our students, their families and friends, and our staff members.  This year marks our first graduating class at East Allen University.  I was honored to travel to Vincennes University on Saturday, April 30th to watch nearly 60 East Allen University (EAU) students walk across the stage and receive their Associate’s Degree.  EACS is proud to make this opportunity available to our students.  Not only are we opening the doors to higher education for our students, but we are saving parents thousands of dollars in college tuition in the process!

I want to take this opportunity to remind you of our EACS Educational Foundation’s annual fund raising event. This event is a dinner to be held at the Parkview Mirro Center on Friday evening, May 20th, at 6:00 PM.  The keynote speaker will be former Indianapolis Colts center and ESPN NFL analyst, Jeff Saturday.  Tickets are $30 per person, or $50 per couple.  You may reserve a table for eight for $200.  It promises to be a memorable event.  To reserve your tickets, please contact Rose Fritzinger by phone at 260-446-0135, or by email at rfritzinger@eacs.k12.in.us.

The EACS’ Educational Foundation is a nonprofit organization established in 2001. Their mission is “to engage the community in support of public education, provide ancillary funding for programs and activities that elevate the quality of education, and extend learning opportunities for students of East Allen County Schools” and their primary initiatives are:

  1. Collegiate Connection/Dual Credit: Each of our five EACS high schools receive up to $5,000 annually from the Foundation to provide reimbursement for successful college coursework completion by juniors and seniors. To date, 959 EACS students have received partial/full tuition reimbursement.

  2. EACS Teacher of the Year:  Since the 2014-15SY, the Foundation has provided up to $250 for each EACS building-level Teacher of the Year for classroom supplies/materials. Annually, each of our building-level K-12 Teachers of the Year receive this award.

Finally, please join us in encouraging your student(s) to finish the school year strong, and to continue to put forth their best effort with their school work and testing during these last weeks of school.

Dream It. Do It.

Dr. Kenneth H. Folks, Superintendent of Schools
