Meet the new assistant principal!
As a former student, resident, parent, and coach in the Eastwood School District, I am thrilled to be returning to this fantastic district as the elementary assistant principal. While I already know many of you, I am looking forward to meeting everyone and working with you to collaboratively make this a terrific school year.
Prior to coming to Eastwood as an administrator, I completed a very enjoyable career as the principal of a 5th and 6th grade building at Anthony Wayne and taught at both Otsego and Perrysburg. While I loved my years in those districts, I am very happy to be coming “home” to Eastwood.
Outside of work, I enjoy running, playing golf, playing softball, traveling, and spending time with my family (wife: Sallie, sons: Evan & Mitchell)
There are so many great people at the elementary and I am excited to be a part of this team!
See you all soon and Go Eagles!
Summer Kindergarten Screening
If you haven't already had screening or signed up for the summer screening, please contact Laurie Ruch at the Central Office.
State Testing Results
We will send home state testing results for students in the fall.
Building a Better Culture takes everyone!
I know there have been questions as to why we wait to post them until August, so I wanted to explain the rationale. With the addition of new students and the withdrawing of students, this creates uneven class sizes, which we don't want to have. So the first few days back in August we try to even the classes out and then deal with any move-ins or outs after posting the lists the best we can. We just need the flexibility to balance lists out before posting the class lists.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this process.
