Principal's Message

Welcome To Edgewater High School!
"The Pride of College Park and Orlando"

Principal Heather KreiderDear Edgewater Family,

Eagle families, we have had a busy week with sports events just about every night and senior nights for our girl's basketball and soccer teams. This is a great time of the year as we begin to really highlight and celebrate the efforts of our seniors before they are launched into the world as Eagle graduates.

Speaking of graduation, we are two and a half weeks into the quarter, and it is time to monitor key information to ensure the success of your child. Grades are taking shape, attendance patterns are being set, opportunities to earn the required concordant scores for our seniors and juniors are winding down and rigor is ramping up. I sent out two Connect Orange messages this past Thursday. One to the parents of all students who have only A and B grades in their current Skyward gradebook and one to the parents of all students who have at least one D or F grade.

One of the graduation requirements for a Florida high school diploma is a minimum 2.0 GPA, which is tough to reach with D and F grades in the history. We have tutoring available Tuesdays and Thursdays after school that students need to take advantage of if there is an academic struggle.

Our next Poppin’ Conference event is scheduled for this coming Wednesday, January 25th, from 1:30-2:30 in the cafeteria. Start by picking up a printout of report card and current grades and then visit one or more teachers for a quick check in. If a more involved conference is needed, we are happy to set that up as well.

Lots of spring sport tryouts are taking place this week. Our boys' water polo team is looking for a few more members. Please reach out to coach Patty Whitted if there is interest. Baseball, softball, girls' and boys' lacrosse tryouts all start Monday after school. Times are being announced daily in the after-school announcements. Boys' volleyball tryouts will begin on February 13th. Participating in sports is not only healthy for your body but is one of many great ways to connect to the school culture and create a meaningful experience at Edgewater.

As we head into the new week, the focus is on helping students reframe their mistakes into opportunities for learning. The most successful individuals, whether personal or professional, study their mistakes, make adjustments, and keep moving. We will make great strides with our students if we can help them navigate this mindset. Join us and have the conversation at home, too!
