Dear Community Members:

I have a couple of notes today as we get ready to wrap-up the 2021-22 school year!

 

EARLY RELEASE ON FRIDAY

Students will be on an Early Release schedule tomorrow for the final day of school. The MS/HS students will release at 1:15, and the Elementary kids will release at 2:25.

 

GOOD LUCK TO EAGLE ATHLETES

The Baseball team travels back to Elida today for a Regional Semi-Final game Ottawa Hills at 2:00. Good luck to them!

 

We also have four Track Athletes heading to Jesse Owens Stadium to participate in the State Track Meet Friday-Saturday. Dalton Hesselbart and Julia Sabo will compete in the Pole Vault, Olivia Newsome in the Discus and Ava Kiefer in the Shot Put.

 

All the best to our student-athletes pursuing their dreams!!

 

SOME TOUGH GOODBYES

 

We have several staff members who will be retiring after tomorrow.

 

Jack Corken will be retiring from his math position at the High School after 37 years. He has been a strong and well-respected teacher and coach during his time at Eastwood. He will continue to work as a track coach, but he will be deeply missed in the classroom.

 

Karen Noble has been an elementary teacher working mainly at Webster, but has also taught at Luckey and Eastwood Elementary. She has taught 2nd and 3rd grade along with being a Title 1 Reading Specialist. Her versatility and strength in teaching reading has benefitted many students over the years.

 

JoLynn Gerwin will be retiring as the Middle School Library Paraprofessional. Things have shifted for her during the years, and she has always adapted and is such a valuable member of our team. It is truly hard to express her value to the Middle School. She is one of the kindest people you will ever meet.

 

Sue Volschow will be stepping aside as Transportation Director. As I said before, this is a very challenging position. Things change from day-to-day, and the attention to detail required to manage it cannot be understated. Unfortunately, we take for granted the complexities and rarely say thank-you. Sue – we thank you!

 

PEMBERVILLE POOL IN NEED OF LIFEGUARDS

 

The Pemberville Pool is looking to bring additional lifeguards in for the upcoming summer season. Certification will be paid for by the Pemberville Pool.  If interested contact Nicole Bowlus at 419-410-1263.  

 

EASTWOOD GIRLS SOCCER CAMP

 

Attached you will find the camp brochure for the Eastwood Girls Soccer Youth Camp to be held on July 27-29.

 

Have a great rest of the week! GO EAGLES!
