District News

  • Definition of a Union Free School District

    The New York State School Boards Association's School Law compendium (35th Edition), defines it as follows:

    "A union free school district is a school district generally formed from one or more common school districts to operate a high school program, which common school districts cannot do. First authorized by legislation in 1853, union free school districts are administered by a school board of between three and nine members."

  • A Message from Superintendent Dr. Victoria Kniewel

    Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year.

    Think back to your first U.S History course for a second. Surely it covered basics of presidential elections, term limits, and voting rights. But even if you remember the in's and out's of the electoral college system, I'd bet that facts like those are not the ones driving your opinions and your votes as we move toward a historically fascinating election in November. How well did your American history textbook prepare you for issues like the ones facing us today?

  • Blanford Field is Open!

    Thanks to the overwhelming support of the Edgemont Community, it is time to celebrate the opening of our newly renovated Blanford Field at Edgemont Jr/Sr High School. We hope that your children will join us! The field looks fantastic and we want to share the excitement of opening it with the people we built it for: the students!

    Please join the Edgemont Recreation kindergarteners on Saturday, September 24 at 9:00am for  soccer on our new field. Coffee and donuts will be served (in the stands, not on the field).

    Please join the E Club for our Homecoming football game on Friday, October 7 at 7:00pm. Enjoy dinner and dessert from one of the local food trucks and watch the Edgemont Panthers tackle the Irvington Bulldogs on the new field. It promises to be an exciting game!

    For a full schedule of all Homecoming events, check out the E Club website - edgemonteclub.org

Principal's Message

  At Greenville School, we strive to fulfill the District goal of cultivating caring, globally aware, well-rounded and academically prepared children. It is thrilling to watch our kindergartners entering our building each fall, excited and ready to learn, knowing that what lies ahead is a seven-year journey in which they will grow personally, socially and academically.   Collaboration between staff, students and members of the community is a hallmark of Greenville School. All members of our tight-knit community work together to create a warm, supportive, challenging and mutually respectful learning environment.  Academically, we focus on encouraging our students to set and reach high goals with an emphasis on individual development as opposed to arbitrarily set benchmarks. Our teachers are attentive to ensuring that our students receive instruction designed to prepare them for being world citizens and for advancing in their academic careers. At the same time, teachers are encouraged to use creative and individualized approaches and to inspire passion about learning – ultimately, creating life-long learners is our primary goal. 

I am excited about the launch of the newly redesigned Greenville Website where you will find resources, information, announcements and lots of fun images and “blurbs” about the many exciting events, programs and initiatives taking place in Greenville. The website, and our twitter feed (GreenvillePrinc), provide great opportunities to keep abreast of what is going on and to share in your children’s experiences. Your feedback about the site is welcome as we continue to explore how to enhance it and provide you with interesting and valuable content. Please check in with the site often as we will be updating it with new photos and information designed to give you a glimpse into the wonderful world of Greenville School! 

Best wishes,

Jennifer Allen
Principal
