Special Announcement

Principal -- Evergreen Avenue Elementary School
The search for a principal for Evergreen School began last month immediately following the Board of Education receiving notice of Mrs. Carey’s intention to retire at the end of July. The Board’s search included involvement from teachers, parents, and administrators. We are pleased to report that Mrs. Tonya Breland was approved at this week’s Board meeting to become the principal of Evergreen Avenue School for the 2007-08 school year, effective August 1, 2007.

Mrs. Breland is currently an assistant principal at an elementary school in the Burlington Township School District. She has experience as a teacher of kindergarten, fourth grade and seventh grade students. Recently, Mrs. Breland was one of two educators in the state to receive the Milken Family Foundation National Educator Award. She received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Howard University and a master’s degree in educational administration from Nova Southeastern University.

Principal -- Walnut Street Elementary School
In addition, the Board of Education is pleased to report that for the 2007-08 school year, Dr. Jeffrey Adams has been appointed to assume the responsibilities of Principal of Walnut Street School. Dr. Adams has been our Supervisor of Special Services for the last two school years. He has proven himself to be a hard working, student-focused administrator who truly enjoys being part of the Woodbury Public School system. Dr. Adams will continue his oversight of the Special Services department while also serving as principal.


Between now and the start of the new school year, formal opportunities to meet our new principals will occur. These will be advertised directly by the district and through parent organization communication. Both Mrs. Breland and Dr. Adams are excited about the chance to assume these important roles in the school district and look forward to meeting with all members of the school community.
