Dr. FolksSpring has arrived and the end of the 2015-16 school year is rapidly approaching.  We had a relatively mild winter this year, and as a result, EACS did not have to utilize our eLearning plan.  I want to thank the eLearning Committee for their time in developing the plan, and the Board of School Trustees for approving that plan last fall.  Unless we have a canceled day between now and the end of the school year, we will not be sending out the annual eLearning survey to parents as we did last year when we missed nine days of school due to inclement weather.

When we return from Spring Break on Monday, April 11th, there will be less than seven weeks of school left before the last day of school on Wednesday, May 25th.  April and May are typically very busy times of the year.  State standardized assessments are administered during that time, and there are many school and district level events scheduled.  I will highlight a few of these below:

  • The 3rd Annual EACS Autism Resource Fair will be held at our Park Hill Learning Center on Saturday, April 16 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.  Attractions include over 40 providers/ community resources, therapy animals, sensory activities, Make It-Take It sessions, a food truck and so much more!  In addition, we will be featuring Art for Autism during the event.  Custom wreaths will be handmade by our own EACS staff and students and will be sold to help us raise autism awareness.  Not only will you learn more about autism and autism supports, but you will have a great time and will not walk away empty-handed.  It's family-friendly, and free to everyone.
  • On April 30, over fifty East Allen University (EAU) students will graduate from Vincennes University and receive an Associate’s Degree.  This is the first graduating class at EAU. These students will walk across the stage at Vincennes University and receive their college degree a month before they even graduate from high school.  On top of that, 70% of these students are first generation college graduates.  This is a very exciting time for our students, staff, and families.
  • Our EACS Educational Foundation will be hosting their annual fundraising event on Friday, May 20.  This year’s event will be a dinner held at the Parkview Mirro Center beginning at 6:00 p.m.  The keynote speaker is former Indianapolis Colts center and current 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.

Dream It. Do It.
Dr. Kenneth H. Folks, Superintendent of Schools
