Dear Edgewood Parents,

We are excited to announce the start to the school year will be Monday, August 15, 2016.  If your children are riding the bus to school, you should be getting a letter from transportation about the pick up time for Monday morning.  Bus traffic will enter and exit on Logan.  If you are driving your student to school, please enter the front lot from Union Street.  Parent drop off will be in the front of the school.  Staff will be there to welcome you.

Buses will unload at 7:20 a.m. and all students will gather in the commons.  There will be staff handing out student schedules and maps.  Breakfast will be served and the bell will then ring at 7:35 for students to move to their first class.  Staff will be available to give directions and guide students.  

Students need to bring basic supplies to school including pencil, pen, paper, trapper keeper and/or book bag.  The bookstore supplies will be available the first day of school.  Most likely we will have a table set up in the commons if students need to purchase locks or other supplies.  iPads are scheduled to be distributed Monday afternoon.  

We hope to have a student assembly on the football field at 8:30 Monday morning.  We will go through the daily bell schedule, announce lunch shifts before 5th period and finish the day at 2:45.  Parent pick up will be lined up out front, coming in off of Union Street.  Please do not park in the faculty parking lot.  Simply get in the line and we will remind your students to quickly get into cars so we can keep the traffic moving.  Buses should depart by 2:50.  We have assistance from the WPD to make this transition run smoothly.

We will host a parent meeting Monday, August 22 at 6:30 p.m.  We will also host an open house once the construction is fully complete.  Lockers will be installed in January and we will make arrangements for coat storage as the weather cools down.  Both locker rooms will be available and this most likely will be recommended storage for coats.

The building should be completed by January 2017.  In the meantime, we will be providing construction updates in our daily announcements.  We appreciate everyone’s help, support and understanding during our renovation project.  We are going to have an amazing school when it is finished, but just so you know, it is already an incredible place for learning, even during construction.  If you have any questions, please let us know.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility during this great transformation at Edgewood!!!

As the weather warms up, students are changing their wardrobe, moving from winter to summer clothing.  Just a reminder that we do have a dress code policy, and we are fortunate to have air conditioning here at Edgewood!

WARSAW — The third and final ground breaking ceremony for the Warsaw Community Schools design build project took place Tuesday afternoon, March 8, at Edgewood Middle School.

Students, teachers and school officials gathered in front of the building, where freshly-dug soil was ready for the occasion. Donning hard hats, students picked up their ceremonial shovels to signify the official start of the project.

“We’re very excited as we start this process and thankful to our community for allowing us to move forward with our renovations,” WCS Superintendent Dr. David Hoffert said. “This is probably going to be the most complex part of the building project.”

Edgewood was originally designed with an “open concept” in mind, but as education has changed and need for more classrooms arose, problems soon became apparent. The design will cluster classrooms according to subject matter and will eliminate “nested” classrooms, those with no other access but through other rooms.

Hoffert noted the project is slated for completion some time next October or November.
