Welcome back, Eagles, and a warm welcome to our new Edgewater families,

This is our first full year as a PTSO and we are excited to pour every dime of membership, fundraising and spirit wear sales into our teacher and staff appreciation events, teacher grants, senior scholarships, class-specific events and much more.

It is also our pleasure to welcome new principal Ms. Kreider and staff, and to partner with them to promote all the great things happening at Edgewater High School.  We look forward to participating in community events and school-based activities like selling spirit wear at football games, and meeting our Edgewater families, students and staff. 

Please follow us on facebook and Instagram for school event and student activity notifications, and links to school and community resources.  If you would like EHS PTSO to post your school-related photos, announcements, fundraisers and activities send them to info@edgewaterptso.org.

I wouldn’t be a very good PTSO president if I failed to invite you to join membership, buy spirit wear, sponsor events and volunteer your time, but if you can do only do one thing, please join membership at a generous level. 

One hundred percent of your dues benefits the teachers, students, and programs at Edgewater High School because we want all Eagles to soar!

Helpful Resources for All Edgewater Students & Families:

Ms. Kreider’s weekly e-newsletter – an outstanding resource for what’s happening at Edgewater High School all year long.  Click here to sign up: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf3DWTGDnIV7qeqQF3X4xQ6CSoyIuUf_HJhNo647BBwhGBYgA/viewform?fbclid=IwAR1SgnwBrllxvu7mbBdq1XhvopEcmg7eegWQlOKSNNUEzKY8yhw7YlPNcIo

Just because your kids are in high school doesn’t mean your volunteer days are over. Parents with students in sports, arts, magnet programs, exceptional education, leadership and more are needed and an important part of what makes Edgewater High School exceptional.

Yes, the PTSO is always looking for ready, willing and able volunteers, but no matter where you serve, please renew your annual ADDitions application for the 2021-22 school year.

Whether you are a new volunteer or returning volunteer, you MUST update your application every August by following these four steps:

1) Log on to  https://ocps.samaritan.com and click on ADDitions/Volunteers

2) NEXT:  Search by School, type Edgewater in the drop down, and choose “ Become an ADDitions Volunteer 2021 – 2022” , and then click SIGN UP under the logo.

3) Choose LOGIN if you are a returning volunteer (use forgot my password if you need to) or NEW VOLUNTEER

4)Update any changes, answer the security questions, and SUBMIT.

When you are on campus to volunteer, you MUST sign in on the computer in the front office. EVERYONE must have a visitor badge before leaving the office.

And if you just so happen to enjoy planning events, interacting with the Edgewater community and getting to know teachers and students, I have just the volunteer gig for you!  info@edgewaterptso.org.
