Dear Students,

Welcome to Eastchester High School!

It is going to be an exciting year, as the opportunities for you to excel academically, athletically, artistically, and altruistically are virtually limitless.

As you begin another year of schooling, commit to giving your best:

  • Make it your primary focus to excel scholastically. This should be your main focus. All other school-related endeavors should be secondary to your academic success.
  • Become involved in one of our sixty-plus sports teams or clubs. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to become invested in an interest, activity, or sport. Well-roundedness is an important attribute as you plan for your post-high school lives.
  • Give of your time and talents to help someone in need. Involve yourself in service activities within the school and the community.

If you commit to working hard academically, participating in the school community through clubs and activities, and giving of your time to a good cause, not only will you get the most out of your high school experience, but you will one day have the opportunity to enter the university and career of your choice as a well-rounded and caring individual.

Our graduates go to fine schools because they made the most of their high school education. You can do the same thing! Remember, excellence is a habit. While natural ability is part of the equation, success in high school also requires desire and hard work.

If you do only one thing this year, promise yourself not to settle for less than your best effort. The results will be amazing. If there’s anything I can do to assist you, please don’t hesitate to speak to me.

In pursuit of excellence,

Dr. Jeffrey A. Capuano
