August 2018 Principal Message

Posted in Principal's Message

Hello Edgemont Families,

Welcome to the start of another wonderful year at Edgemont Elementary!  Edgemont's staff is busy planning and preparing for our Eagles to return for the 2018-2019 school year.  The first day of school is quickly approaching!  

Here are a few helpful reminders to help the first day of school be amazing:

  • All school supplies are provided by Edgemont.  Bring a backpack, and we will provide the rest.
  • Come to Back To School Night on Tuesday, August 21st from 4-6pm.  This is when students find out who their teacher is and visit their new classrooms.
  • The first day of School for 1st-5th grade is Wednesday, August 22nd.  The first day of school for Kindergarten and Preschool is Monday, August 27th.
  • The welcome bell rings at 8:40am and instruction begins at 8:45am.  The dismissal bell rings at 3:20pm.  *Remember that every Friday is an early out day and the dismissal bell rings at 1:40pm.
  • You can pay for school lunches online using paypams.com or by sending cash/check to the school.  *We do not accept credit/debit cards at the school.  
  • Students will line up at their grade level doors on the first day of school.  Teachers will be outside to greet students and help them know where to line up.
  • Remember to set up a plan for after school!  Bus riders need to know their bus number.  Students getting picked up in the green zone need to quickly arrive at the green zone area after the dismissal bell rings.  Students who are meeting you or friends to walk home need to set up a designated meeting spot.
I look forward to seeing you and your student very soon.
