Dear Edgemont Families, Alumni, Community and Friends,
Would you like to help “ensure and enhance the value of an Edgemont education?” That’s what you do when you support the Edgemont School Foundation. Since its founding in 1993, ESF has provided much-needed funding that has improved the curriculum, modernized facilities, and enhanced the educational experience of all Edgemont students.
Some recent examples of ESF’s impact include:
- Model School Plus – This initiative has firmly integrated technology into every Edgemont classroom, via the popular internet based Google Apps for Education, which streamlines assignments, boosts collaboration, and offers seamless communication between student and teacher.
- Multi-media Lab – The new multi-media lab on our High School campus expands on its traditional capability to help cement students understanding and process of analog image making. With ESF’s support, this all Mac digital lab enhances capabilities for our students.
- The E-Lab – We recently announced a $238,000 grant to modernize our school campus via the design and renovation of Edgemont’s first “collaborative learning space”. Located in the High School E-Building, this space provides a cutting-edge learning environment for teachers and students.
Superintendent Victoria Kniewel recognizes the critical importance of ESF, recently explaining, “Working in direct partnership with the administrators, teachers and the Board of Education, ESF’s contributions to our district are substantial. Recently, the ESF made the first of what will hopefully be a series of major grants to our schools as we work together to create innovative learning spaces through renovation and architectural redesign.”
Each year we ask for the support of the entire greater Edgemont community to help us continue enhancing the educational experience in Edgemont. If you have supported ESF in the past, thank you! We are truly grateful. We hope that all those committed to the success of Edgemont, our schools and our students will join us this year by supporting the Edgemont School Foundation and helping us exceed our $100,000 goal. We won’t be able to achieve this goal without your help.
With sincere thanks for your support,
Adam Friedman Ellen Litt
Edgemont School Foundation Co-Chairs
P.S. Another big thank you to our 2016-2017 donors!
