Welcome to our new website!
Our goal is to have you visit often to find out all of the great things happening at E.D. White. A big thank you goes out to Annie Knight who has been working diligently over the last year to help develop a vibrant and everchanging portal of information. We are working hard to make this website the place where you continue to return for information.
We have had a phenomenal start to the 2020-2021 school year. Amidst all of the challenges with the pandemic, the community has come together to press forward in faith knowing that God has a plan for us. As we move into phase III allowing sports, band and other activities to move forward, I begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Although there are still restrictions we must follow, and of course maintaining the health and safety of all concerned; the excitement around the school continues to grow. I cannot tell you how proud I am of the E.D. White family. Let’s continue to work together in faith as we move through these memorable times that will no doubt make us all stronger.
If you have passed by our campus in the last few months, you certainly have seen the major construction behind our main gym and student union. The Bollinger-Bordelon Weight Room and expansion of the boy’s athletic locker room will be completed in March of 2021. The weight room will be 3,400 square feet and will be used by all students in P.E. and over 500 athletes. The expansion of the boy’s locker room will provide a 2,500 square foot space allowing for gathering of teams for meetings and during games.
In conjunction with this new facility, we are in the process of raising funds for a new concrete band practice field which will double as a parking lot with 85 parking spaces. If you are able to help us with this project in any way, please call me at the school.
Hopefully, you can tell how excited I am about E.D. White as we work hard to fulfill our mission of imparting the Catholic faith, promoting academic excellence and enhancing self-esteem.
