Principal's Message

Welcome To Edgewater High School!

I’ve been thankful that Thanksgiving has been a family affair for the past 25 years—the once a year opportunity to see my parents, brother, sister, cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. 

And for the first time in 25 years, the Shanoff’s, Andrew’s, Goodman families will not be spending Thanksgiving together. With the current restrictions in place in the DC area, Parker and I will remain here, celebrating our first Thanksgiving in Florida! My sister and her family will remain in Chicago, my brother will remain home with his family and my elderly parents will remain sequestered in their respective homes. 

And, in 2020, it’s OK. I have nothing to complain about and I have every reason to be thankful. 

Things I’m thankful for this year:

  1. I’m thankful to be a dad.
  2. I’m thankful to be healthy.
  3. I’m thankful to be surrounding by friends and family who I care about deeply.
  4. I’m thankful to work with an amazing group of people; genuinely good, kind-hearted people.
  5. I’m thankful for the kids and families I serve.
  6. I’m thankful to work for OCPS, which has been great to my family and me.
  7. I’m thankful to live in a democracy.
  8. I’m thankful for all of the other wonderful things in my life that I take for granted.

This year, and every year moving forward, this is all I need. I wish you and your families all the best for a Happy Thanksgiving and a healthy week ahead!
