Starting this school year, Mrs. Charleson-Smith and Mr. Suchyna will be East’s new Assistant Principals. Both have tremendous amounts of experience and have worked in several other school districts before arriving here. Mrs. Charleson-Smith spent 16 years as Assistant Principal at Frontier High School and was a Special Education Coordinator and Special Education teacher at the Buffalo Public Schools. Mr. Suchyna, also the new Athletic Director, was a school counselor, Physical Education Teacher, and Assistant Athletic Director at St. Francis High School in Athol Springs.
With the arrival of these new administrators, an additional change is being implemented. Rather than assigning students to Assistant Principals by grade, they will be designated based on their last name. Consequently, students with last names A through H should report to Mrs. DeSantis, I through R to Mrs. Charleson-Smith, and S through Z to Mr. Suchyna.
Let’s be sure to give Mrs. Charleson-Smith and Mr. Suchyna a warm East welcome!
