Dear Families of Whitehall City Schools,
I hope you all have enjoyed your summer thus far! The new school year is upon us and I’m certainly looking forward to seeing our students back in class on August 16th.
We have one new building administrator at Whitehall City Schools this year. I’d like to welcome Ashley Gates as the new Principal at Beechwood Elementary. Ms. Gates comes to us from Pickerington Local Schools where she was a science teacher.
In addition to our new building administrator, we also want to welcome a new concept to our district that focuses on early literacy. This school year, we will commence with our new version of Kae Avenue Elementary that will be the home to all of the district’s PreK, kindergartners, and 1st graders. Kae Avenue Elementary will be a campus focused on primary literacy that will promote our young students to become active readers when they enter 2nd grade. Etna Road and Beechwood Elementary will then become 2nd-5th grade schools. To learn more about this new initiative on improving our educational experience here at Whitehall City Schools, visit our Primary Literacy Campus page
Even though there are many new changes this year, our goals of success we have for our students remain the same. I believe Whitehall City Schools can be one of the most successful school districts in Ohio. We have students that are ready and eager to learn, a talented staff, and incredibly passionate parents providing that much needed support at home. Everyone is in the car ready to go. Our students’ dreams are the roadmap to get there.
Let’s make 2017-2018 our best year yet!
