EPS Offers New KG Class for Young 5 Year Old Children
“With most of life’s endeavors, getting off to a good start is an important part of success. We want our students to be successful from their first day of school to their last day in our school corporation.”
The quote above is from our superintendent, Dr. Sanders. As a former teacher and principal, Dr. Sanders has worked closely with students and families during his 30+ years in education. We have been encouraged and excited by the vision he has shared with the staff and is now implementing throughout the corporation K-12.
At the primary level, the “connector”, i.e. the new building that will connect EPS and EIS, will be completed late this summer. New, state-of-the-art music, STEAM and art rooms will be housed in the connector for both EPS and EIS.
RBB is giving renewed focus to our early childhood programs. While every child is special in their own way, not every student is ready for kindergarten when the state of Indiana deems them eligible. Over the years we have seen a significant “readiness gap” that mirrors the “achievement gap.” Our kindergarten teachers are designing a K5 Kindergarten program that will give parents and the school options to provide a more successful first step for our students and better prepare them for the next level.
Our K5 program will be based on kindergarten Indiana State Standards, with an emphasis on oral language development, literacy immersion, number sense and collaborative experiences that encourage cooperation, self-confidence, self-regulation, and healthy attitudes about school and learning.
If you are interested in this program for your “young 5-year-old”, please contact the EPS office (812-876-9600). As RBB develops its graduation plan for each student, we know the journey must begin with a successful first step. ~Brenda Whitaker, EPS Principal

RBB Staff Support Dollars for Scholars to Benefit EHS Seniors
The EHS Faculty started using Jeans Day money to fund an EHS Faculty scholarship a couple years ago. In August 2018, Edgewood Dollars for Scholars challenged EJHS, EIS, and EPS to also raise funds for a named faculty scholarship. I am proud to say that over $2,000 will be awarded on Honors Night for EHS, EJHS, EIS, and EPS Faculty Scholarships on Wednesday, May 15.
Well done RBB! I wanted to extend a special thank you from the Edgewood Dollars for Scholars Board of Directors for supporting Edgewood graduates! Please stay tuned for future events that will also support this great cause!
