Edgewood's Tiger Talk

September 1, 2016--1st Day Update

Welcome Back!

It was a great first day! Teachers and students got right to work learning routines and building community. Teachers surprised students with a dance at our Community Assembly--what better way to start the year than with a little fun? =)

This morning at the Boo Hoo Breakfast, a parent who's sent 4 kids to Edgewood said that sending her kids to school here was like sending them to stay with family. This is how we want all of our families to feel. When schools and parents work together, we can do great things for our kids. Another parent this morning asked, how can I best get involved? Here are a few ideas:

  • Come to an EHSA Meeting. The first one is 9/13 at 6:30 in the media center.
  • Volunteer for an event...a dance, a breakfast, a run--you don't need to come to meetings to do this.
  • Ask your child's teacher if they could use a volunteer; some parents stuff Thursday folders, others help with bulletin boards, others come in for a career day.
  • Ask questions--for example, "How can I help my child with his homework?"
  • Share your concerns
  • Come to Coffee with the Principal! (See below)

I look forward to working with you and your child this year. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time. My email is mboyd@greenfield.k12.wi.us.

Coffee with the Principal

Our first principal-parent coffee is next Friday, September 9th. Coffee will be in the library from 8-8:30. Students are welcome to attend; we'll have an activity for them to do. This month's topic: Morning Meeting--What is it, and why are classrooms doing it?
