Principal's Message

 
Dear EBC Community,
 
I am thankful to have the privilege of serving as Principal at Edward B. Cole, Sr. Academy.  It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2018-19 school year. 

I personally was drawn to joining EBC because of the focus on community and family.  The EBC staff is a team of talented and dedicated professionals.  We are here to serve our community and all of your families.  As parents, I know you all want your sons and daughters to grow academically, socially, and emotionally. You want them to become adults that can advocate for themselves and for others. You want your children to be able to have their own voice and make their own choices throughout life.  At EBC, we are committed to helping your students grow into our nation’s leaders for tomorrow. Your son or daughter will one day be leading the fight for equality and fair treatment for all peoples.  For all we know, your child may become the eventual President of the United States.  

Here at EBC, we are going to challenge your student academically while also ensuring they know they are valued and feel safe.  We are going to expect your student’s top effort each and every day.  Ultimately, EBC is going to build on the successes of our past and take our achievements to new heights. Our expectations will be raised because we know your students can meet them.  Thank you for entrusting the EBC team with working alongside your students this upcoming school year.  As partners, it is critical that the school and parent community work together to ensure your student develops into a successful 21st century citizen.  I ask that you guide and support your student’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
 
1.     Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
2.     Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
3.     Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college
 
At EBC, our best days are ahead of us.  Parents, you are an important part of our success. Please know we value your skills and would appreciate you volunteering throughout the school year.  Thank you again for your support!
 
Be well,
Nicholas Sessions
