Dear E.A. Hall Parents and Students,
I hope that you had an exciting and loving Summer vacation. We have been working very hard this Summer to ensure that your students will receive the best education possible. I am happy to say that I am looking forward to being your principal once again this year. Please feel free to stop by and visit with me any time as my door is always open to you.
You will be happy to find that we have three new members of our administrative team this year. Mr. Wright has taken a job as Vice Principal in Santa Cruz to be nearer to his family. Mrs. Keller has taken the job as Principal of AVCI. And Mr. Coffey , the Academic Coordinator , has taken a job in Santa Cruz as Vice Principal of a high school. We have hired Rafael Ramirez II as Assistant Principal, Jeff Bryant as the Assistant Principal of the Extended Learning Program and Ted Altenberg as the Academic Coordinator. Mr. Ramirez will assist teachers with discipline. This year we will again have two counselors on campus. Wendy Temblador is returning as our full-time counselor and Joann Borbolla as our Teacher Guidance/Social Emotional Counselor. They will ensure that your students are placed in the appropriate classes and that they get necessary counseling if it is needed. Brenda Guzman will be returning as your very own Parent Liaison. She will be organizing parenting classes for you and will be working closely with our School Site Council and ELAC members to establish our classes and Parent Volunteer Center.
