We’re in the home stretch!! That’s right, when we return from Spring Break, we’ll only have approximately two months of school left in the 2018-19 school year, the Edgerton Local Schools staff and students are preparing for a whirlwind finish to a very busy but worthwhile year. As you know much of the year has been focused on the preparation, implementation, and administration of the state testing model. Our focus at this point of the year is the end-of-year state tests as we strive to provide the best academic environment for student success.
Let me just say
that I am so thankful for the quality of students that we have at Edgerton
Local Schools. The attitudes, work
ethic, and appropriate behavior, which are exemplified consistently each day by
our students, are without question a tribute to you, the parents and families
of our kids. I am most impressed by
their degree of selflessness. They amaze
me with their compassion and support for each other through school athletic,
vocational, or musical events.
Our tremendous teaching staff has dedicated themselves
to having our students as prepared academically as possible to excel, not only
on state mandated tests, but socially and behaviorally as well. Through our new Leader in Me initiative,
I look forward to partnering with staff and student alike to build adult
leadership skills in our young people.
The anticipation of the Spring season will bring great
sporting events, an exciting musical,
Footloose, as well as numerous other student activities such as the State
FFA Convention. I love the excitement
and enthusiasm of Kindergarten Assessment, which is scheduled for April 16th/17th, and the Accelerated Reading Reward Program at the Parkview Field in Ft. Wayne watching the Tin Caps. Class field trips, spring music programs, PTO Daddy-Daughter Dance, and Field Day promises to make the end of school year 2018-19 a very exciting time for our students and staff.
Have a great Spring!!
Mr. Kermit Riehle, Superintendent
Edgerton Local Schools
