A Message from Our Superintendent

Greetings EOSD Staff,

Dr. Kevin West

As the snow melts and we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving with our families, friends, and loved ones, let me take this opportunity to personally thank all of you who go the extra mile each day for the benefit of our students and school district. I am grateful and blessed to be able to work with extraordinary students, competent and dedicated staff, wonderful and committed parents, a supportive board of education, and caring community partners.

Thanksgiving thoughts are the kind of thoughts that we should have all year long. It is indeed to our students' advantage when we can surround them with caring adults who have thankful hearts and minds, and are filled with joy, compassion, love, and understanding. Thank you so much for helping us prepare our students for college, careers, and life.

Gratitude is at the heart of Thanksgiving, which gives the EO Board of Education and me this perfect opportunity to say thank you for your continued commitment to our students and to the East Orange School District.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!


Kevin West
