Dear Families of Whitehall City Schools,
I hope you all have enjoyed your summer thus far! The school year is nearly upon us and I’m certainly looking forward to seeing our students back in class on August 21st.
There are many new faces that some of them will see when they enter their buildings this year as we have hired new building administrators at Whitehall City Schools.
- At Whitehall-Yearling High School, I would like to welcome Dr. Maria Boyarko as one of our new assistant principals. Dr. Boyarko comes to us from South-Western City Schools where she was a professional development coordinator.
- At Rosemore Middle School, we’d like to welcome Erik Barbon as the school’s new assistant principal. Mr. Barbon joins us from Pickerington where he was an ESL coordinator.
- Finally, at Kae Avenue Elementary, we’ll welcome Ms. Lauren King as our new assistant principal. Ms. King comes to Whitehall from Northridge Local Schools where she served as an instructional coach.
In addition to our new building administrators, you should see all of the new improvements at WYHS and Kae Avenue as a result of our successful levy campaign this past November. At WYHS, we have new windows at the Walter Armes Learning center, new tennis courts, new football stadium lights, and a new artificial turf field at WYHS Stadium! At C. Ray Williams ECC, we installed new windows and doors, new HVAC units, a keyless entry system, and a new roof! Later this year, we will begin our new addition to Rosemore Middle School in order to accommodate a growing student population.
Even though there are many new faces joining us this year and new improvements to our facilities, 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.
Let’s make 2019-2020 our best year yet!
