Welcome back to school!  
We are very excited about the start of the first full week of the new 
school year.  It seems only a few days ago 
we were preparing to send the EBF Class of 2019 out into the world but time in the summer flies by for those of us in the school business. 

Summer brought many improvements at EBF.  A new sidewalk to the playground was poured in Fremont, the EEAC playground got new asphalt and hoops, the HS window project was completed, a new drainage system was installed, handicap ramps were renovated to include nonslip surfaces, three buses were replaced and our server was upgraded.  Kudos to the hard work put in by the maintenance department, technology and transportation departments. 

We have had a great start to the 2019-2020 school year.  This year’s student body has done a great job of coming in and getting started! Each year, I am so impressed with the students and staff. 

It has been a busy, rewarding summer of high achievements 
and honors for EBF’s Archery Team, FFA, Boys Baseball, Girls Softball and Cross Country Teams.  Many of our Fall extracurricular activities will be in full swing by the time thisnewsletter reaches you.  Best of luck to 
 all fall athletic teams and activities! Please come out and support all of our teams and activities. 

We had a great turn-out at our Meet the Teacher and 
Orientation Nights.  We love putting on our Open Houses to showcase our facilities, and our teachers. but it is also a great community event where we can all get together and share our excitement 
for the new school year! 

Teachers and students are already hard at work in the classrooms during the first week of school. Each building has created a detailed plan to increase and support student academic achievement, and social emotional wellness.  Teachers will be using Friday Professional 
Development days to better their teaching strategies and use of curriculum to 
insure all students make a year’s growth. 

We look forward to working with our families to make this school 
year one filled with lots of success for EBF kids.  As always, if you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.  

Dr. Dean Cook
