From the Principal's Desk...


Dr. Keith Shoemaker - Principal

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you and your child as the Principal of Eastern York Middle School.  My name is Keith Shoemaker.  I am extremely excited about this upcoming school year.  My desire is to develop a trusting relationship with all stakeholders, with a primary focus on establishing a rapport for academic excellence, respect for others, and a commitment to maintaining a positive school culture.  I am excited for the opportunity to support your child’s educational development and assist you in cultivating their self-awareness of expectations, goal setting, and pursuit of destiny.  I look forward to meeting all of the parents and stakeholders of the Eastern York Middle School community. As a parent you already know that you play a critical role in the success of your child’s academic success. Communication is essential. Therefore, if you have any questions throughout the school year  please feel free to contact me.
