    Dear E. Ray Elementary Family,

    My name is Andy Utsumi and I am honored to serve all of you as the Principal of E. Ray
    Elementary School. I am very happy and excited to work together for the betterment of
    our students. This year promises to be full of achievement, productivity, and growth for
    our students. Together, we will aim for excellence as we focus on student engagement,
    maintaining a positive school culture, and rigorous instruction based on
    standards-aligned lessons.

    I have been working in education for the past 21 years, 18 of which have been in
    Everman ISD. I completed my first year as principal of E. Ray, I served as the Hommel
    Assistant Principal for 4 years and taught for 13 years at Bishop Elementary School. I
    received my undergraduate degree from Arizona State University in Elementary
    Education. In 2015, I earned my master’s degree in Educational Leadership from
    Concordia University.

    I strongly view education as a collaborative effort between parents, students, teachers,
    and the community. I am truly looking forward to working with and fostering all students
    to become the best individuals possible.

    During my free time, I enjoy watching and playing all sports, as well as spending time
    with my family. My wife and I have two teenage sons. I look forward to meeting you and
    your family. You are always welcome to visit our school and meet with me. I am
    grateful and elated for the opportunity to continue to build relationships with our E. Ray
    families. The 2022-2023 school year will be full of wonderful new experiences for all of
    us! This year’s theme will be “Building a Brighter Future.”

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 817.568.3545 or by email
    at autsumi@eisd.org.

    Sincerely,
    Mr. Andy Utsumi
    Principal
