Welcome to the Next Generation of Edina Public Schools FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT Greetings Edina Public Schools families and welcome to the 2013-14 school year! This year, like those that came before, promises to be another year filled with numerous academic achievements and student successes. Edina Public Schools is committed to honoring its tradition of excellence, celebrating the success of its current students and staff, and ensuring its educational programs and services are relevant to the learners of today and tomorrow. We are also dedicated to being good stewards of citizen resources and partnering with local businesses and organizations to continuously improve the Edina community. So what does all this mean? It means that you can and should continue to be proud to be part of the Edina Public Schools family. But it also means that you have a critical role in the continued success of our District. We are all in this together; we are all Edina Public Schools. As we begin a new school year, I invite you to join us. Within this calendar you will find a snapshot of opportunities in which you can be involved, both at our schools and in the greater community. This year, we are also expanding our volunteer services program (part of Edina Community Education Services) to provide even more connections for our students to engage with the tremendous

resources we have in the Edina Public Schools community. I hope you will not only think about ways to help your own child succeed, but also think about ways you can engage with other students and families to continue to promote real-world learning experiences that will help all students thrive and grow. To explore additional ways to engage with Edina Public Schools, call our school or district offices, contact our community volunteer program (952-848-4924, volunteer@edinaschools.org), or check us out online at www. edinaschools.org. Through the power of partnership, we know that we can achieve our mission of All for All. In working with all Edina Public Schools stakeholders – students, families, staff, residents, and business and community leaders – we can ensure we are doing well by all of our learners. Our history of excellence is only as strong as our present and future, which is intricately linked to each and every child. When all of us work together, we are sure to achieve success for every learner. We all have a role in keeping Edina Public Schools strong and continuing to define excellence for schools across the country and around the world. I look forward to partnering with you on this amazing journey. Warm regards,

Ric Dressen, Superintendent

Late Start/Early Release Information

ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS (grades K-5)

Late Starts and Early Releases are being introduced this year to provide critical collaboration time allowing teachers to better customize the learning experience for each student. Having this additional planning time periodically during the school year allows teachers to provide timely modifications or change instruction in ways that best meet the needs of their students.

WHEN ARE THE LATE START/EARLY RELEASES DAYS? On the following dates, school will either start two hours late or dismiss two hours early: • • • •

Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013 - Late Start Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013 - Early Release Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014 - Late Start Friday, Mar. 28, 2014 - Early Release

ENRICHMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Edina Community Education Services (CES) invites students to join its welcoming enrichment programs before and after school on the scheduled late start/early release days. Edina Community Education collaborates with EPS teachers to offer activities that complement what students are learning during the school day. •

Elementary Program - Elementary students can enroll in enrichment programs at their home elementary school for one, two, three or all four of the late start and early release days. (NOTE: There will be no early or late day release offerings for the CES half-day kindergarten programs.)

Middle School Program - Middle School students can enroll in the CES enrichment program on the two early release days only. (NOTE: There will be no middle school enrichment program program offered on late start days.) The Middle School program will be held at South View Middle School. Valley View students interested in participating in the program will be bused to South View for the afternoon program.

WHAT TIME DOES SCHOOL START/END? • Late Start means that the student school day begins two hours later than usual, with no class for morning ½ day kindergarten students. • Early Release means the student day will end two hours earlier than usual, with no class for afternoon ½ day kindergarten students.

WILL THERE BE BUSING ON THESE DAYS?

District transportation will be adjusted for the two hour late start or early release. That is, on late start days, the bus will arrive two hours after their usual pickup time; on early release days, students will be dropped off two hours earlier than their usual time. After school activity buses will operate as usual.

• LATE START AND EARLY RELEASE DAYS ARE LISTED IN ORANGE

2013-14 SCHOOL START & END TIMES

LEARNING OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM Learning does not only take place in the classroom. Students take chances, make great leaps and bounds, and continue to be lifelong learners when they are faced with new environments, challenges and expectations. Real-life application to lessons and activities outside the school walls help students understand key concepts and apply their learning to everyday situations. Promoting field trips and experiential learning is no longer an option; it’s a necessity. LEARN MORE 

READING FOR A REASON Engaging the mind and stimulating the thought process can be achieved through one act: READING. Students are introduced to a global and diverse world through books, articles, magazines and historical documents, while also broadening their minds to creative ways of thinking and learning. At EPS, literacy is a top priority and we are committed to reaching the goal that each Edina student is reading well by third grade.

ALL FOR ALL Our mission to educate all individuals to be responsible, lifelong learners applies to each and every Edina student. Last year, EPS refocused its efforts on a refinement of its mission statement to three simple words -- All for All. This focused approach acknowledges that it takes all of us – students, families, teachers, staff, community members – working together to ensure that all of our learners have the tools they need to achieve and grow, and that closing achievement, opportunity and access gaps are necessary to ensuring all of our students can be successful.

TEACHERS AS STUDENTS Teachers are becoming students again and they are thrilled to say so! The staff at Edina Public Schools make it a point to meet with each other and discuss how, why, and in what ways students learn and what they can do to help all students succeed. Our teachers are experimenting with different lessons, activities and instructional strategies to improve the learning of individual students. Demonstrated teamwork and collaboration are keys to personalizing learning for every Edina student.
