Wear Red on September 4 for a Whole School Picture

posted by Jill Brunkan   [ updated ]

On Friday, September 4 we will be taking a whole school picture. The picture will be displayed at the high school in the Lancer Hall of Pride.  It will accompany pictures of the four other elementary buildings.  All of Ed White’s students and staff will be a part of the picture. Please wear red this day.

Fun Run T-Shirt Donation/Trade Tubs

Fun Run T-Shirt Donation/Trade Tubs
The PTA does not get any kick back from Fun Run t-shirt orders.  They place the order as a service to our students and faculty.  Don't feel as though trading old shirts with other students and families will hurt the PTA in anyway.  In fact, they are encouraging it!  Bring in your old Fun Run shirts to donate and pick-up your new color.  There will be donation bins outside of the main office in our lobby.  Place your old shirts in and look for your new color. 

If you plan to place an order for a new Fun Run shirt, order forms and money are due on September 1st.  Order forms can be found below.  Please return form and money to your child's homeroom teacher.

Principal Bernadette Brustkern

My name is Bernadette ‘Bernie’ Brustkern and I am thrilled to be the principal at Ed White Elementary.  I am originally from the North Scott community and went to school here K-12.  I graduated from The University or Northern Iowa in 2009 with my degree in Elementary Education and minor in Social Studies.  I began my career at Ed White as a 4th grade teacher.  While teaching, I pursued my Masters in Educational Leadership from Western Illinois University where I graduated in 2012.  After 5 years in the classroom, I was fortunate to become the associate principal last year.  I am excited to be back in the community, serving the district that gave me such a wonderful start.  My husband, Chad, and I recently moved to Long Grove.  We have an eight month old named Bennett who keeps us very busy!  When we have free time, we love visiting with family and friends and traveling.  Ed White is truly a special place to work and learn.  I am very excited to continue making connections with students and their families in the coming months.  It’s going to be a fantastic year! 

Associate Principal Michael Kline

Education is a passion of mine and I am thrilled about this opportunity to join the North Scott Community School District. I am a graduate of Pleasant Valley High School (2003) and Iowa State University (Bachelor's 2007 & Master's 2015). I have had the privilege to teach in a variety of settings over my professional career, the latest of which was 6th grade at Clarke Community Elementary in Osceola, Iowa. In addition to teaching, I have been involved in coaching football, basketball, soccer, and track. While in Osceola, I served as the head varsity football coach for the Clarke Indians. In my spare time I enjoy spending time and traveling with my family, going to church, eating out at a variety of restaurants, and enjoying the great outdoors. My wife Kristin and I are blessed to have three wonderful children. (James 4, Benjamin 1, and Grace 3 months) I look forward to meeting as many people in the community as possible and becoming a North Scott fan. GO LANCERS!
