From the Superintendent


Hello Edgewood ISD students and parents,

Sincerely hope this message finds you off to another great school year here in Bulldog Country! 

The 2014-15 school year should be an exciting one.  After our technology upgrades from summer, EISD is proud to let you know that 100% of our academic classrooms now have Smart Boards and ceiling mounted projectors, 100% wireless access, and 100% access to student wireless laptops.  In addition to our new technology you’ll notice that our high school campus received a nice “face lift” with front office carpet and a new student commons area floor.  Make sure you find the time to stop by the high school commons area to see our new “Student Recognition Trophy Case”.  The idea behind this trophy case is simple…it’s empty on the first day of school with the expectation that it will be full on the last day of school!


Make it a great year…the choice is yours!

                                                           
Andy Baker

Favorite Quotes
Blessed is he that expects nothing, for he shall always receive it."  Benjamin Franklin

"A little bit of pride goes a long way!" 

Like Captured Fireflies
In her classroom our speculations ranged the world.
She aroused us to book waving discussions.
Every morning we came to her carrying new truths, new facts, new ideas
Cupped and sheltered in our hands like captured fireflies.
When she went away a sadness came over us,
But the light did not go out.
She left her signature upon us
The literature of the teacher who writes on children’s minds.
I’ve had many teachers who taught us soon forgotten things,
But only a few like her who created in me a new thing a new attitude, a new hunger.
I suppose that to a large extent I am the unsigned manuscript of that teacher.
What deathless power lies in the hands of such a person.
