New Routines

Posted in News & Announcements

Thanks for visiting Edgemont Elementary's School website!   This school year has brought new faces to our staff, a renewed excitement about learning and a whole school initiative to GO GREEN!  Over the past few years our school fundraisers have brought over $60,000.00 of technology into our school!  Now we are encouraging our community to support us in our technology efforts by visiting this website and our PTA website (eepta.org) for school information.  We are transitioning away from sending reminders home on paper copies and replacing that old routine with our new routine of receiving phone skylerts, emails, and information on our school website!

Here are a few of the new routines at Edgemont Elementary:
1.  New district schedule for elementary schools.
2.  New master schedule that maximizes academic instruction time .  
3.  New booster schedule including media, playworks, technology and drama instruction.
4.  New e-flyers from Peachjar.
5.  New and improved school website as our main mode of communication.

Thank you for your patience as we continually increase our communication between home and school in new ways this year.  Sometimes change can be uncomfortable!  We are committed to providing a quality education to all students at Edgemont, and using our technology resources is part of our plan.  Thanks for getting on board and transitioning into our GO GREEN initiative!

September's Principal Message

Posted in News & Announcements

Hello Edgemont Families,
I am thrilled to be back at Edgemont for my second year as principal.  I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe summer break.  Now that school is in session, our students are getting back into important school routines.  Students have already participated in Eagle Days.  Eagle Days celebrate our school wide positive behavior interventions and supports (PBIS) by teaching everyone behavior expectations around the building.  Students are explicitly taught how to receive positive recognition from adults by demonstrating behaviors such as being Safe, On task, Accepting responsibility, and Respecting themselves, others and school property.   Please visit the "Our School" tab on our website to view Edgemont's behavior expectations posters!

I am so proud of what our Edgemont students and staff accomplished last year.  Our Building Leadership Team (BLT) and School Community Council (SCC) have created and approved this year's Continuous School Improvement Plan (CSIP) that focuses on increased student acheivement.  Edgemont's 2015-2016 Literacy CSIP goals are:

As you can see, we have rigorous plans to increase student acheivement this year!  It is so important that your student stays healthy, comes to school and arrives on time so he/she can maximize instructional time at Edgemont.  

Here's to a great school year with happy students who are having fun being successful!

Principal Schino
