Welcome to Edgemont!

We would like to welcome all of our 6th grade students who are transitioning from the elementary level. Edgemont is unique being the only junior high in the Puyallup School District with 6th graders as a part of the student body. We love having this grade level at our school and believe that they benefit from the many options available.

The purpose of this newsletter is to get our students ready for the first day. Please take a look at the information below as well as the Back to School 2021 newsletter that went to all families. That newsletter can be found using this link.

Student Connection Day - September 1st

All 6th grade students are invited to our first Student Connection Day on Wednesday, September 1st. This is an optional event intended to welcome students to campus so they can get comfortable with the school and their teachers. Here are the details:

  • Date: Wednesday, September 1st
  • Time: 7:20-11:20 am
  • Location: Edgemont Junior High
  • Transportation: Bus transportation will be provided for those who will normally ride the bus
  • Format: Students will attend all 6 of their classes during the day. At each place they will meet their teacher and learn about different parts of the school

Please note that lunch will not be served on this day. We ask that students attend the entire event.

Edgemont Open Doors

Following the Student Connection Day on September 1st, we will be opening the doors of EJH for 6th grade families to tour the campus. This will go from 3:00 to 6:00 pm. Everyone is welcome!

Student Computers and the Puyallup Protection Plan (P3)

All 6th graders will be receiving a new computer on the first day of school. In order to make this happen, they will need to bring a completed Puyallup Protection Plan (P3) form on this day. This form was included in our summer mailer however you can find a copy on our district technology page. Additionally, it is advisable that you review the information about this form on that page. That link can be found here.

Payment for the P3 can be made at the school or at EZSchoolPay using this link.

1st Day of School

Thursday, September 2nd is our first official day of the 2021-22 school year. All students are required to be on campus for this day.

School starts at 7:20 am and students will attend all six of their classes including homeroom and lunch. It will be a busy day of welcoming activities, school orientation, expectations, and academic work. Staff will be on hand during transition times to help students get to the places they need to go throughout the day. Finally, school will end at 1:50 pm.

We look forward to seeing all of our new 6th graders!
