WELCOME TO THE ELKTON CHARTER SCHOOL WEBSITE
I want to take a moment to thank the Elkton Community for the warm welcome I have received over the last few weeks. This is truly a remarkable place and I consider my family very lucky to be a part of it! I would also like to thank Mike Hughes and Rita VanCampen for their years of dedicated service to our schools and our community! Their hard work will prove to leave a lasting positive impression on our schools.
As the summer is buzzing along you will notice several improvement projects in various stages around the District. Our new fitness facility is nearing completion. This project was funded through grant and district funding. The majority of construction is completed and our crews and contractors will be putting on the finishing touches for the beginning of school. Look for information on our web site http://www.elkton.k12.or.us/ for a community open house in late August or early September.
As one project finishes another begins! Work will proceed shortly on the new playshed at the Grade School. This will replace the old playshed that has given many, many years of shade and cover for students in Elkton and needed to be replaced because of rot. We are extremely excited about the new design and will be watching with all of you as the new structure takes shape. Please be aware that the construction will have an impact on access to the playground during the month of August. We ask that if you stop in to see the progress that you be mindful of equipment and crews trying to complete the project. There is an assortment of other projects that our staff is completing in preparation for the new school year. They do a great job and are working hard.
I encourage any and all of you to call or stop by to meet me. I will be working most of July and am available to answer questions, or hear concerns, about your schools. I seek to continue the “open door” policy that Mr. Hughes had. One of the areas that we will continue to focus on will be our communication skills. It is important that we communicate all of the wonderful things that our schools have to offer. Please do not hesitate to contact me. Let’s get ready for a successful 2014-15 school year.
