We did it! We made it through the school year- and we did so in style.
Thank you ECS families, it was a memorable year.
As with every year, next year will bring some changes.
I'd like to take a minute to say goodbye and good luck to two of our family members: Jennifer Koziar and Trish Miller.
Jennifer Koziar has been at ECS for nine years, has seen her own three children graduate from here. Mrs. Koziar is now looking forward to her next journey teaching at Edgewood High School. Mrs. Koziar has been a phenomenal teacher- taking on three different levels of math each year, running our Math 24 enrichment program and helping with our most recent math curriculum review. She will be missed.
Mrs. Miller came to ECS three years ago. She has been teaching second grade these past few years and has been a natural fit on our primary team. Mrs. Miller will be taking time with her family next year, but has graciously promised to come back and substitute teach for us.
Words cannot properly express our gratitude for these loving educators. They live our mission of truth, compassion, justice, community and partnership in their teaching and in their daily lives.
We will update you with future hires in our summer editions of Edgemail.
Until then, have a safe, relaxing and fun-filled summer!
Principal Yancy- You're Hired!
From the Desk of Anne Palzkill- President
Dear ECS Community,
While serving our remarkable school, I am most proud of our dedicated staff and our talented students. Together, they make ECS radiate with vitality and joy. They live out our Dominican mission each day in their words, faith, and actions!
I am grateful to our Board of Directors, past and present. They are a committed and under appreciated group of gifted volunteers. I am also filled with gratitude for our parents, alumni, grandparents, and all those whose who carry us in their collective arms of support. ECS will continue to thrive due to the countless efforts of our loving community.
Leader as Servant
On a personal note, I have spent the last 34 amazing years in education, quietly working to uphold the principles of servant leadership. It has been the focus of my career to live out these truths: build community; listen; be empathetic; foster healing; stay aware; use persuasion; encourage big picture thinking; cultivate foresight; commit to the growth of people; and to be a steward.
The most challenging of these principles is fostering healing, which is defined as "caring about the personal well-being of others, so that you help to heal the past and make it whole again". Not surprisingly, it is a BIG part of a school administrator's job. Grief, humiliation, loneliness, bullying, discrimination, racism... the list of suffering and grievances that need healing is endless. Due to a caring and expressive parent, I was blessed with insight to understand the value of practicing reconciliation to foster healing.
During my last weeks here at ECS, I encourage you to serve others and to do the difficult work of supporting the healing of those you encounter.
From your faithful servant leader with gratitude for my time at Edgewood Campus School,
7th Grade Social Justice Projects Were a Huge Success!
- Nearly $500 being donated to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital
- Hundreds of canned goods and food for Second Harvest
- Hundreds of cards for patrons at the Ronald McDonald House
We are thankful that the entire ECS student body took part to make all of this happen for others for our social justice projects in seventh grade!
