 Dear Parents and Guardians, 


 Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year.


 My name is Paul Spina and I am the former Principal of the Zeigler School. I am very pleased and honored to now be serving as the new Principal of the Edwin Forrest School.


I believe students learn more effectively when their environment is safe, bright, uncluttered, and clean.  I hope you will notice the physical improvements we are making to the school's exterior and interior.  I am looking forward to this school year being a very successful one for our entire school community and to many exciting events at our school this year.
