Welcome back! I am incredibly excited to begin my first year here at Early County High!
This promises to be a year filled with wonderful opportunities for all of our students as
we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have been before!  I embark on this 
voyage with a pledge to you, our students, parents, and community that this will be a year
of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with special
events and extracurricular clubs and activities, performing arts, and athletic teams certain
to encourage our Bobcats to be involved and stay connected!

Our staff of highly qualified  professional educators and support personnel is committed 
to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom.  I 
invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us to take hold of
opportunities in all five facets of our Early County program: Academics, The Arts, Athletics
Activities, and Self-sacrificing Endeavors.

I look forward to  a very positive and productive year together!  I extend a special,
yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever
possible.  We want ... We need...and We value your participation and support in your
