• A Greeting from the Principal
     
    Dear Parents,
     
    On behalf of the Edgewood faculty and staff, welcome to the 2016-2017 school year.  We are excited about working with you and continuing our tradition of excellence as we begin Edgewood's ninety-sixth year.
     
    Edgewood opened on January 5, 1919.  Our school's first principal, Miss Mary Piedalue, quickly established a reputation for excellence in education. Over the years everyone in the community has worked closely together to provide a warm and friendly learning environment for children.  As Edgewood's sixth principal, I am proud to continue this tradition.  We continue to benefit from a strong and diverse faculty, a high level of parent support, and our unique multicultural population.  I hope you will work closely with the school and share this very special Edgewood spirit!
     
    Edgewood's students profit greatly from the involvement of parents through our many PTA committees.  If you have not already volunteered to assist with some of these PTA activities, I encourage you to do so.
     
    I look forward to working with you this year to provide another fruitful year for our children.  Our staff is eager to work closely with you as partners in your children's growth and development.  If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher or myself.
     
    Sincerely,
     
    Scott E. Houseknecht
