“I need you to hear with your hearts today,” said Edina High School (EHS) principal Bruce Locklear as he welcomed students to one of two school assemblies Tuesday morning. The assemblies were held to announce the new Edina High School Creed, a statement of respect and inclusiveness written by more than 50 students to move the high school forward in ensuring a welcoming school climate.
Over the past two years, the activities office at Edina High School has approved many new clubs, all founded by EHS students. These clubs provide students with a great way to connect with peers while they pursue their passions.
With the announcement of Superintendent Ric Dressen’s retirement at the end of the 2016-17 school year, the Edina School Board and its search consultant, BWP & Associates, are seeking community feedback on the skills and qualities desired in the next leader of Edina Public Schools.
