Superintendents Message

Mr. Kermit Riehle Greetings Edgerton community.   It has been a rewarding, but challenging year to this point at Edgerton Local Schools.  My experiences as superintendent to this point has been exciting, challenging, and very humbling.  I couldn’t have anticipated all the new learning that has come with the superintendent position, so I ask many questions and work hard to learn quickly. The bottom line is I have an amazing opportunity to shape the culture and academic focus of the entire district, which is something I take very seriously.  So I’ve spent hours with staff in developing a vision and mission which is effective in its purpose and approach.  Staff members are speaking, teaching, and exemplifying our mission and vision statements throughout the days at ELS.  

We have much to accomplish in this final quarter, academically and socially as students seek to work together and collaborate, in order to help create a positive and nurturing environment for all those involved.  The staff members count it a privilege to work with your kids and look forward to witnessing their growth in class every day.  

Thank you to Bulldog Nation for the support you demonstrate toward our students and staff.  We have an outstanding district whose mission is to build respect toward each other and provide an outstanding academic foundation for future success. It is because of the caring families and educators of our rural district, as well as the hard-working Edgerton students, that allows all these things to occur.  I’m proud to say, as a graduate of Edgerton Local Schools, that I’ve raised my family here as well, and count it a distinct privilege to serve our community as a long-time educator and administrator of Edgerton Local Schools.

Looking forward to spring!

Yours in education,

Mr. Kermit Riehle
