Principal's Message

Welcome To Edgewater High School!

When the bell rings for 1st period Monday morning, the slates are wiped clean in each class and students have the opportunity to either continue a trajectory of excellence or turn a corner and make the most out of the new nine weeks. As the end of the first nine weeks approached, I was heartened by the two-way communication occurring between parents and teachers. In my four years, this was most the most responsive our teachers have been and they deserve recognition and commendation for their timely communication. 

The second nine weeks is where the rubber meets the road. Semester grades, class rank, graduation on-or-off track, and even sports eligibility are at stake. Some view the second nine weeks as the least important. In this day and age of high expectations for graduation and the competition for college admissions, scholarships and grants, and coveted slots in our most competitive Orange Technical College programs, the second quarter of the school year matters. 

Every day is Day One at Edgewater, but the first day of the second nine weeks is particularly important for students to jump into a successful term.
