Dear Parents, Alumni, and Friends,
The beginning of a new school year is always an exciting time at E. D. White as we see the new senior and junior classes take on leadership roles, the sophomore class transition from junior high to senior high status, and the freshmen rejoice that they are no longer the new students in school. The welcoming of our 8th grade class and new students in other grade levels is one of the highlights for our faculty because we see the tremendous potential in our new students and look forward to helping them reach that potential.
We are very blessed to welcome the following educators to the E. D. White family:
• Mr. Blaine Hymel – Social Studies Mrs. Dawn Plaisance - Math
• Ms. Emily Laris - Religion Mrs. Monica Mayeau Rau - Music
• Mrs. Andrea Lotz - Math Mr. Jason Ray, Jr. - Science
• Mrs. Kelly Moreaux – English & A.E. Father Joseph Tregre - Chaplain
Student schedules and important Orientation Day information were mailed on Thursday, July 27. Orientation Day is the first official school day for students, and it is vital that students are present. Please refer to the 2017-2018 Student-Parent Handbook posted on the school’s website, www.edwhite.org, and on PlusPortals for dress and grooming policies. We want the first day of school to be a positive one for our students, so it is important that they are in proper uniform. We appreciate your support in helping your child to adhere to the dress code throughout the school year. If you have any questions regarding hairstyles or grooming issues, please contact Mrs. Charlotte Smith before school begins.
It is our hope that all students, as they gather to embark on a new school year, will regard their opportunity for education as a privilege rather than an obligation and so embrace this year with enthusiasm, determination, and a positive mindset. Goal-setting will be an important component of their spiritual and academic formation this year, and we look forward to partnering with you to help your child achieve these goals.
Thank you for choosing our school to be a part of your child’s spiritual and academic journey. May the Lord continue to bless your family.
Michelle R. Chiasson '86, Principal
