Mike Kelly, Principal
The faculty and staff at Eyer would like to welcome parents and students to the 2013-2014 school year. Monday will be an exciting day, as we welcome new students joining the Eyer family for the first time and welcome back returning students for another year of fun. This year is a "WOW" year at Eyer. This means we will have a theme for the year and there will be many events and activities scheduled throughout the school year incorporating our theme. I am excited to announce this year’s theme is "EYERWOOD," with a focus on all things Hollywood, including movies, music and sports. We are going to be kicking off the first day of school, in true Eyerwood fashion, with a full schedule of team building, problem-solving and other fun activities. These activities will require students to be active and move around quite a bit. On the first day of school, we ask that students wear comfortable clothing, including sneakers, so they will be able to actively participate in these activities without restriction. Also, if students have medications (including inhalers, epipens, or other devices) which may be required to be on hand in order for them to participate in these activities, they must bring them to the nurse on the first day of school.
We look forward to seeing everyone on Monday, and wish you a successful and fun school year.
--from Mr. Michael Kelly, Principal of Eyer Middle School
