History of Earlywine Elementary
In 1993, a new school was added to the Moore Schools Family. It was named Earlywine Elementary. As you may guess, it is in close proximity to Earlywine Park and the Earlywine Golf Course.
The principal chosen to help launch this new school was Brenda Page. Her staff ranged from teachers who had been in the district for many years to teachers who were new to the teaching field. Under her leadership, a fine school was established.
The new student body was formed from students who had attended other schools such as Fisher and Fairview. Their first job was to vote on a school mascot and colors. The colors picked were navy blue, green, and gold. You might be surprised by the mascot, seeing that Oklahoma is a land-locked state, but the kids chose the dolphin. It’s fitting though because the dolphin is very intelligent just like the students.
In 1999, Chris Bolen became the new principal. He continued the traditions previously established and created a comfortable atmosphere in which teachers could work and students can learn. Then we were pleased to have Lonia Brown as our principal. She had been a teacher, counselor and principal and came to us from Apple Creek. We were happy to have had her as our new principal in 2010-2013. We will continue proudly in the tradition that has established us as a great school and wish Mrs. Brown the very best in her retirement! In 2013-14 we were so thrilled to have Mrs. Peggy Matlock who came from Red Oak, just down the street from Earlywine! We started new traditions and became a strong Earlywine FAMILY in keeping within our Moore Public Schools Family theme for this school year. We wish the best for Mrs. Matlock in her retirement and new adventures she will have with her family- and hold her to her promise to visit often and help out in the 2014-15 school year! In 2015 we were pleased to have Mr. Ben Randall! With his 29 plus years of educator experience, we created great memories and an even stronger Earlywine! Mr. Randall will be missed by all in his retirement. We are excited for Earlywine's new chapter. We are now welcoming Mr. Jeremy Gatlin as our new principal! Welcome, Mr. Gatlin!!!
