A note from the Director...
Dear Parents and Students,
Hello. My name is Adam Fellers, and welcome to Ed White Middle School and our wonderful Theatre Arts Department. I cannot tell you how excited I am about this year, and all the new and wonderful changes that are in store. I am fully committed towards every child’s continued academic growth and new found appreciation in the Arts. Learning and growing is my purpose, and I will foster it by keeping it my highest priority while providing a safe and healthy environment for all my students.
In hard economic times, three things are true: education is vital to our children’s and community’s future, partnership between school employees, parents, community, business volunteers, and children is more important than ever, and Fine Arts defines who we are as a community. We are a strong program thanks to our history of teamwork, but I would like make sure that none of these three truths slip through the cracks.
This website provides important information about our program's policies and procedures. Please read it carefully and keep it available. If you have any questions, I will be happy to assist you. If you would like to reach me, look for the "Contact" button near the top left hand corner.
Thank you for entrusting your child to me. I look forward to another wildly fun and successful year.
Adam Fellers Theatre Arts and Broadcast Journalism Director
Yes I am the Theatre teacher they warned you about!
