Dr. FolksWelcome to the 2016-17 school year! It is a great pleasure to welcome our returning families as well as those families who are new to East Allen County Schools. I hope you spent the summer relaxing, finding time for yourself, as well as enjoying family time.  We are looking forward to another exciting and successful year for our students and staff.

We are so fortunate to have a school district which we can be proud of - with students, staff, families, and the community coming together to support our mission to inspire excellence. This is the reason why EACS has been designated an "A" School district by the Indiana Department of Education!

One of the most important parts of my job is to be in the schools on a regular basis connecting with teachers and students. Members of the Board of School Trustees and I also look forward to engaging with our parents and community members throughout this coming school year.

East Allen County Schools is pleased to be welcoming new administrators this fall – many of whom have already been with EACS serving in other roles, including Leo Jr./ Sr. High School Assistant Principal - Patricia Meadows; New Haven High School Principal - Anna Murphy; New Haven High Assistant Principal - David Stinson; New Haven Middle School Principal - Chad Houser; and New Haven Middle School Assistant Principal/Athletic Director - Steve Snodgrass.  Returning to our district is New Haven High School Dean of Students - Becky Christensen; and new to our district this school year is Southwick Elementary Principal - Diamond Robinson; Southwick Elementary School Title I Administrative Assistant - Augustine Pugh; and Heritage Jr./Sr. High School Assistant Principal - Diane Dikeolaskos. We look forward to the new ideas and perspectives that these talented educators will bring to their schools and the district.

For your convenience I have included below the dates of our Back to School Nights!  This is a great opportunity to meet your child(ren)'s teacher, tour the classroom, the building and hear about the awesome things that will happen this school year!  See the Back to School Night schedule!
