Welcome to Edgewood Elementary School. EES is a close-knit learning community that promotes the academic and social development of our students in a safe, friendly environment.
Your child's experience in elementary school is a special time in his or her life. During these years children experience important developmental changes. It is also when children become more autonomous and they transition from "learning to read" to "reading to learn." It is my belief that parents are the first teachers of their children and they play a central role in their child's education. I invite you to partner with the school in open, honest and continuous communication concerning your child to ensure a successful home-school partnership.
To assist in guiding our students toward success, we have adopted a list of Character Traits that align with the district’s strategic plan, and also support our Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports process—I am HONEST, I am ACCEPTING, I am KIND, I am DETERMINED, and I am BRAVE. In teaching these traits, we are equipping our students with the necessary skills that make for a successful student, and in the years to come an upstanding citizen.
Our students’ success does not happen all by itself. It is the result of collaboration between students, families, staff, and the Edgewood community. At Edgewood Elementary we have high expectations for our students and are confident that as we partner with you, we will provide them with the tools and supports necessary to meet these expectations.
I am honored to be a part of this nurturing learning community. We are EES proud and show our Cougar Pride ... Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe, and Be Together - -We can make a difference in the lives of our students and community working together.
