The start of the new school year brings with it a change in leadership for the middle school. Meet Jamila Steward—she's a ball of energy bursting with ideas with 23 years of experience. She brings with her a background in student growth and development. Jamila is committed to child-centered education, where innovation and 21st-century skills are taught and exercised.
As an educator and a psychotherapist, Jamila understands students' social and emotional well-being is essential, especially during these times. She's a hands-on leader who looks forward to being fully integrated into the classrooms and happenings of our middle school community.
This week we had a celebratory welcome back for parents, students, faculty, and staff at our "Back to School Social." We had ice cream, hot dogs, games, and Mr. Pullen had a splash in the dunk tank. It was an excellent way for students to have fun and for parents, faculty, and staff to get to know each other better.
We also welcomed some new families to the Eton Community. When given the opportunity to engage with their student's learning, family members are eager and willing to do whatever they can to support their students! At Eton, we believe that families and teachers are the real superheroes, and their partnership creates the ultimate teaching superpower.
