Message from the Superintendent
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Eastern Greene Schools...home of the mythical and mighty Thunderbirds.  My staff and I work each day to offer our full support to the students, parents, families, and other stakeholders that make up the Thunderbird community! Our common goal is to provide great instruction and promote engaging learning opportunities for all of our students during their time at Eastern Greene Schools. In doing so, we know we can help students become fruitful, good citizens and outstanding human beings. As we like to say, we give our #thunderbirdbest!

We see the  instructional framework called the "4 Cs"-- Collaboration, Creativity, Communication, and Critical Thinking --as crucial in our efforts. These ideas represent the 21st century skills our students need to succeed well after their time at Eastern Greene. Our teachers incorporate these skills into all that we do, so that our students will be fully prepared for the challenges that await them. 

We seek to provide high quality educational experiences for all children.  Additionally, we strive to provide a caring and safe environment that provides intellectual challenges and age-appropriate opportunities for social development from Pre-Kindergarten through Senior Year. Our classrooms reflect the high expectations of the Indiana College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) and our community's dedication to educational excellence.

The Eastern Greene Schools Board of Trustees, administrative team, faculty, and support staff work tirelessly to promote student learning in the classroom and through our extensive extra-curricular activities. However, we recognize that we cannot do it alone, so we rely on our families and friends in the community and beyond to help us in this endeavor.  As such, we seek to promote an atmosphere of collaboration, open and honest communication, hard work, and extreme dedication to our cause.  Please join us!

This year we are in the midst of the long-awaited repairs to our HS building after a long litigation process.  These repairs will cause inconvenience and may be an eyesore for a while, but our goal is to have an attractive building that will provide a great high school experience when it is finished for many years to come. 

If you have any questions about attending our school, I invite you contact our elementary, middle, and high school offices.  Our staff looks forward to serving you, as do I.

Let me know if I can be of assistance!

Sincerely,

Ted Baechtold
