Spring is also the time of the year that I start doing our planning for next school year. We are anticipating a few changes to EDW Elementary over the summer. First of all, our blacktop behind the school will be resurfaced. This is the only major facilities update occuring this summer. Looking forward to school year 2017/2018, we are anticipating a decline in enrollment. At the beginning of this school year we were expecting an enrollment of roughly 550 students in PreK through Grade 6 this year. As we plan for next year, we are planning for 30 fewer students. This decrease will have an impact on the number of classrooms next year. I will be working with the staff on the classroom arrangement and will share the design at the May PTA meeting.
