From the Principal
Welcome to Edgewood Elementary School. Our school serves the families in Fruitport for grades kindergarten through fifth grade. We are located in the heart of the village of Fruitport sharing a campus with our high school, middle school, and early childhood center. The staff here at Edgewood are committed and caring individuals. We place a priority on developing the whole child, both their academic and emotional needs.
One way that we promote the growth of the whole child is through our commitment to promoting positive behaviors through participation in PBIS (positive behavior intervention and supports). We strive to create a positive environment where the students feel valued and loved, safe. Our motto for promoting this attitude is “Edgewood ROCKS!”. ROCKS is an acronym for Respect and Responsibility, Outstanding Attitude, Care for Our School, Kindness, and Safety.
Fruitport schools are committed to the highest level of academic excellence. Parents can expect that their son or daughter will receive an education that is unique and individualized based on the needs of each learner. Our classroom teachers know that each student comes to school with a different set of strengths and challenges. Our goal is to capitalize on the strengths and give students the support they need to overcome any challenges that they have. We have many staff members in our school who support our teachers in this process. We have a team of professionals who specialize in math, reading and special education who work with students to develop their academic skills and reach their full potential.
The staff here at Edgewood view the relationship with parents as a partnership with one overriding goal, providing our children with a great educational experience. Edgewood has a very active and dynamic parent-teacher organization. This partnership provides our students and their families with great opportunities to experience school as a family. Each month this organization works to create events that welcome parents into the school to be a part of their child’s school life.
Edgewood is a caring community. It is our ultimate goal that each child who attends Edgewood Elementary School feels valued by the adults working in our school. We want the students to feel safe, and that their time at school is a joyful one. If you would like more information about enrolling here at Edgewood, please contact our school office at 231-865-3171
