Principals' Welcome Letter 2019

Dear Parents and Guardians,


Dr Wray

Welcome to East Bladen High School, we are excited about the upcoming school year.  Our dedicated staff works very hard to meet the individual needs of all students, and maintain personal connections with their families. We want ‘all’ students to read, write, think and talk in ‘all’ classes on a daily basis. ‘All’ means ‘all’.

We invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our Parent Advisory Committee, or attending and supporting school events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child.  

We truly believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the children of East Bladen High School. Education is a partnership between the school, students, parents/guardians, and community.   All children are more successful when we work as a team to achieve educational goals.

As I begin my second school year as Principal of East Bladen High School, I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children. We will accomplish this by setting high academic expectations for all children and providing supportive systems to assure they are met. By addressing school culture, setting high standards for teacher performance, increased academic expectations for all students and engaging the community, it is our goal at the East Bladen High School to ensure all graduates are college or career ready.

We hope your visit to our website and facebook page will give you a quick snapshot of life at our school.  Please explore our links to find out more about curriculum, programs, and daily events at East Bladen High School.
