Emmet D. Williams Elementary


A Message from the Principal

EDW staff and families work in partnership to provide excellent learning opportunities for each of our valued students. Our work is guided by the principles found in our District’s Equity Vision, our school improvement plan, Minnesota Academic Standards, and our school values of Cooperation, Assertion, Responsibility, Empathy, and Self-Control.

This is an exciting time for our school and district as we talk to our community about the upcoming building bond referendum vote on November 7. Both students and staff at EDW feel the direct impact of changing student enrollment and aging facilities. I hope you will take the time to learn more about how the building bond could impact students, staff, and community members. For more information about the building bond, please click here.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact me through our office at 651-724-6326 or via email: brian.koland@isd623.org.-

Yours truly,

Brian Koland
