Principal Tamara Presnell
On behalf of all the staff members, I would like to welcome everyone to East Yancey Middle School!! It is a privilege to serve as principal of East Yancey. Our school has an outstanding reputation, and I am proud to be part of such a wonderful program. East Yancey is filled with enthusiastic students willing to learn, supportive parents/guardians interested in their children's education, and a dedicated professional staff committed to providing the students with a quality education.
Middle School is a very rewarding and exciting time. But like anything in life, you get out of it what you put into it. Because of that, we encourage every student to come prepared to learn every day. We also encourage each student to get involved at EYMS. Please join a club, participate in sports or arts, attend dances, games and other school activities. There are many ways to show your Panther Pride.
I would like to encourage each parent/guardian to stay active in your student's education. I certainly realize that many of you lead busy lives, and it is often difficult to volunteer at school. However, taking just a few minutes in the evening to read to your student, talk with your student about school, or simply see that your student is organized for the next school day can have great benefits.
Enjoy the 2020-2021 school year and all the excitement it will bring! If at any time you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the school. Education is extremely important and is most successful when students, parents/guardians, and teachers work together as one team.
