To kick off our school wide book, The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate Edgewater Public School hosted guest readers in every classroom on campus Monday, January 23, 2017. This week is the state wide Celebrate Literacy Week. Edgewater Public is a Title 1 school with almost 80% of our students on free and reduced lunch. The community really stepped up to show students that reading is important…and fun! Our guest readers included community members from the police, fire and city employees including the mayor, three council members, doctor, nurses, dentist and many more.

May 12th, Young Authors were gathered together along with members of their family to celebrate the completion of their own picture books.
Two children from each class were chosen for their writing, these students worked very hard to public their own picture book writing and illustrations. It was a great celebration to honor these authors for some hard work and dedication.
Roses are red,
violets are blue.
We love poetry,
Public School hosted a successful Poet's Café in honor of National
Poetry Month in April. Students and their families arrived at our
media center which was converted to a café complete with hot chocolate
and desserts from our local bakery, Sweet Boutique. Everyone
enjoyed listening to students share their poems and snapping, instead of
clapping, to celebrate. Neil Keeran, parent of poets Layne and Dara,
enriched poems by playing the bongos. Students were eager to read
multiple poems and excited to leave with pocket size notebooks that can
be carried in their pockets to encourage poetry writing wherever they
