Principal's Message

August 2018

Dear Edgewater community,

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I welcome you to the 2018 - 2019 school year. To the new students and their families, I welcome you to the Edgewater family.

I hope that you enjoyed the incredible weather this summer and had time to be together as a family to create wonderful memories.

At Edgewater, we believe the partnership between school and home is essential to instill the love of lifelong learning. Together we can encourage emotional, intellectual, and creative growth, to ensure each child reaches their potential.

This year our school wide theme is “Inventing a Better Edgewater”. Our teachers have chosen an inventor and an invention to explore with their class and are looking forward to sharing with the community throughout the year.

As I enter my second year at Edgewater, I think about working with our incredibly dedicated staff and supportive parents. I feel privileged to work in a place that fills me with pride, joy and challenges every day. I look forward to seeing your children and celebrating all their successes this year.

We will be going as green as possible this year and therefore cutting back on paper coming home. Please check our website and your emails as we will electronically update on a regular basis. When necessary and possible, we will send school-wide information home with only one child in each family.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

On behalf of the staff at Edgewater, I wish you a fabulous school year.

Mrs. Kapitsky
