A Greeting from the Principal
From its earliest days, Edgewood has been known as the “school with a heart,” and in 2018-19, celebrated its 100th Birthday! Throughout the year, the entire Edgewood School community reflected on these one hundred years of rich history and strong traditions. We also honored a principal who contributed nearly 30 years of service to the community, and fittingly inducted the new Edgewood library as the “Scott Houseknecht Library and Media Center.” The library media center is where we feed our children's curiosity and love of books, a classical role of a school library. The library also reflects Edgewood’s commitment to progessive education, where teachers and students alike imagine "hi-tech" and "no-tech" solutions to compelling problems, and present their collective knowledge to live audiences.
Our talented faculty and staff work earnestly each day to help children fulfill their individual hopes and dreams. We employ a balanced literacy approach, engaging students in rigorous units of study in reading and writing, authentic texts, solving real-world problems and nurturing their natural curiosity about their world through field trips, cultural arts opportunities, the integration of technology, and so much more! We foster a school culture of empathy, compassion and student advocacy via our clubs and Student Involvement Council.
I am deeply honored to have been selected as Edgewood’s seventh Principal. I am enthusiastic about finding new ways to reinforce the culture of a “caring community,” and taking our school to even greater heights. I will continue Edgewood’s tradition of forging strong relationships with our families, where parents are respected and valued as partners in the education of our students. My door is always open, so please reach out to me at any time. On behalf of the Edgewood learning community, “Welcome to the 2019-2020 academic year!” We look forward to another successful school year working together!
With Children First,
