  • Measure B Passes!

    With the passage of Measure B last November, we will be able to increase the amount of technology available to our students. Our goal is to have one device for every student, while improving the infrastructure needed to support the increase in technology use. Currently all our English classes have Chromebooks for student use, as does the science department and 6th grade math. By next fall we plan to have Chromebooks available in all core classes. As a district we recognize that in order to close the achievement gap we need to close the technology gap. We want to ensure that our students have the tools and knowledge necessary to be prepared for their future. We are so fortunate that our community is supportive of these efforts.

  • Edwin Markham Recognized as Gold Ribbon School  Edwin Markham Middle School is one of three schools within El Dorado County recognized as a Gold Ribbon School.“This honor is yet another affirmation of the quality of our schools and honors our shared commitment to narrowing the achievement gap in our community and across California,” El Dorado County Superintendent of Schools Jeremy M. Meyers said. “I am incredibly proud of all of our educators who deliver excellence in education to the children of El Dorado County – these awards belong to them.” Schools applied for the award based on a model program their school has adopted that includes standardsbased activities, projects, strategies, and practices that can be replicated by other local educational agencies. The new award is recognizing middle and high schools this year and elementary schools in 2016.
    The Gold Ribbon Schools Awards Program is temporarily taking the place of the California Distinguished Schools Program. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson stated,“These schools are academically successful, vibrant, and innovative centers of learning and teaching,” Torlakson said. “They provide great examples of the things educators are doing right—embracing rigorous academic standards, providing excellence and creativity in teaching, and creating a positive school climate.” 
    For more information on the Gold Ribbon award, contact the California Department of Education.

Principal's Welcome

  • I hope you find our website useful, full of resources that can help you navigate with your child through the middle school years.

    Working together, we will make this a great year. Our staff works hard to provide a consistent, supportive and nurturing learning environment for our students.  There are a lot of ways for students to become involved, from participating in monthly spirit days, joining an after school club, to being on one of our many sports teams.  And there are lots of ways for our families to be involved as well.  Our enthusiastic Parent Club meets monthly, planning events to get our community on campus.  You are encouraged to help out your child’s teacher in the classroom or volunteer to chaperone a dance or event—You are welcome anytime!

    We have a lot of learning and fun planned for this year—it’s going to be panther-iffic

    With Panther Pride,

    Terry Edinger
