The second graders had a lot of fun on April 3rd. There was so many things to learn and exciting things to do. One of the favorites is eating a sweet treat. The students made crepes with Nutella and other great ingredients. Yum!
Thanks to all the parents and teachers for putting this exciting day together.

Principal Doug Finch visited Edgemont on April 3rd. This was an opportunity for him to meet the teachers individually and get to know everyone. If you see him around the school stop him and say hello. We're excited to have Mr. Finch at our school.

Along with his wife Jodi, he is the proud parent of 4 children.
Marty Evans is excited to welcome Dr. Finch to Edgemont Elementary School.
“As a parent at Edgemont, I had the opportunity to be involved in the final stage of interviews for our new principal. Dr. Doug Finch impressed me as a skilled educator and accomplished leader. He projects an ability to work effectively with teachers, students and parents. His sincere and personable demeanor is an effective complement to his ability to clearly articulate his vision for high academic achievement for every student at Edgemont. Additionally, his previous experience at a Dual Immersion elementary will be a great benefit to our school. I am thrilled that Dr. Finch will be joining us at Edgemont.”
