Picture Day information!

We have two more days scheduled for pictures. Please have your students dress for the weather. Pictures will still be outside and under a tent, but we want students to stay dry and warm while they wait their turn! Please see below for when your child’s class is scheduled for pictures. We would like to have two parent volunteers for each class help shuttle kids back and forth. Please communicate with your child’s teacher to see if they still need volunteers!

** Students in Courtney’s new 4th/5th grade class will have their pictures taken on their original picture date depending on whose class they were originally in. With the change in classes, we will retake Rhian’s class picture on Tuesday and have Courtney’s class picture be on Monday, September 25. Thank you for patience with picture day!
** If your child missed his or her picture day last week, Judi will try and take their pictures tomorrow, Tuesday, September 19.

8:45-10:15 – Adam
1:15-2:30 – Tina
2:30 – Rhian whole class picture retake

Announcements Aug 30th

Message from the Principal
Greetings Edgewood Families,
I have a couple of important announcements that I would like to share with you………
  • I am happy to announce that we have hired Courtney Morris as a half time facilitating teacher. Courtney comes to us from Wisconsin where he had over a decade of experience as a 4th grade classroom teacher, 5th grade classroom teacher, and a 2nd-5th grade TAG facilitator. Courtney will teach 4th grade math, 2nd grade literacy, and provide TAG support to our teachers and students. Please help me welcome Courtney to Edgewood. Also, please note that Courtney’s addition to our staff will not change your student’s classroom placement. Courtney’s presence will allow us to have smaller math groups in 4th grade and smaller reading groups in 2nd grade.
  • Our Fall Conference dates have been set. See Below…..
    • Veterans Day Week
      11/6 Regular School Day (M)

I hope you are enjoying your summer!  We look forward to seeing all of you in September!  School starts on Wednesday, September 6th and we will host an open house the day before on Tuesday, September 5th from 2:00-3:00.  This gives students a chance to meet their teachers and see their classrooms.  The office will be open to accept financial contributions and medications that day as well.
