Dr. FolksDear Parents, Staff, and Community Partners:

Spring Break has come and gone and the end of the 2016-17 school year will soon be upon us!  The winter weather was relatively kind to us again this year and we have only needed three eLearning days so far.  Hopefully, we will not miss anymore before the end of the year! 

The 3rd Annual EACS Autism Resource Fair is coming to Park Hill on Saturday, April 22, 2017, 10 am-2pm.  Attractions include over 40 providers/community resources, therapy animals, sensory activities, Make It-Take It sessions, and so much more!  You will not only learn more about autism and autism supports, you will have a great time and will not walk away empty-handed.   It's family-friendly, and free to everyone!

EACS Education Foundation will be hosting their annual fund raising event on Friday, May 5th.  The event this year will be a dinner to be held at the IPFW in Walb Memorial Union at 6 PM.  The keynote speaker will be former UConn Basketball Player, Olympic Gold Medalist, WNBA Star, and current ESPN Analyst, Rebecca Lobo.  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.

Please encourage your child to put forth their best effort on the ISTEP+ assessments.  Performance on these state standardized assessments provide feedback to students, parents, and staff on student mastery on the Indiana College and Career Ready Standards   The testing window for ISTEP+ Part 2 (Grades 3-8; 10) opens on April 17th.  ECA assessments in Biology, English 10, and Algebra I begin in late April.

Finally, we have enjoyed a fast-paced school year and soon we will be celebrating the graduating classes of 2017.  The last official day of school for this year is Wednesday, May 24th.  Graduation ceremonies will be held on the following dates:

     East Allen University (Associates Degrees): Saturday, April 29, 2:00 PM, Vincennes
     Leo High School:  Friday, June 2, 7:00 PM, Memorial Coliseum
     Woodlan High School:  Saturday, June 3, 10:00 AM, Woodlan High School
     Heritage High School: Saturday, June 3, 2:00 PM, Heritage High School
     East Allen University: Saturday, June 3, 7:00 PM, IPFW 
     New Have High School: Sunday, June 4, 2:00 PM, Memorial Coliseum

Finally, as you may know, I will be retiring at the end of this school year on June 30th.  This is bitter-sweet for me because although I am looking forward to spending more time with my wife, and to the new challenges that I am sure await me, it is sad for me to leave East Allen.  East Allen is special to me and I am extremely proud of the impact our Board and our staff has had on East Allen during my tenure.  I thank you for giving me the opportunity to be your superintendent.  I wish you all the best moving forward into the next era in East Allen, and I am confident that the Board will continue to make decisions that are best for kids! 

Dr. Kenneth H. Folks
Superintendent of Schools
