Benefitting Partner: Edmond Public Schools
The Central Oklahoma Home Builders Association (COHBA) is proud to team up with Edmond Public Schools as the Street of Dreams 2016 benefitting partner! As the third largest school district in Oklahoma, Edmond Public Schools (EPS) has served the Edmond community for more than 85 years. Through the district’s 28 school facilities, EPS provides education for more than 24,000 students each year.
“We’re excited to give back to the Edmond Public Schools district as this year’s Street of Dreams benefitting partner,” said Rusty Appleton, executive officer of COHBA. “Our featured homes are located within this community and the families who move into these homes will be a part of this school district. With each ticket sold, we are able to provide much needed support to the district following the state’s historic revenue shortfall.”
As the benefitting partner, Edmond Public Schools will receive 20 percent of the Street of Dreams ticket sales revenue to continue the district’s tradition of highly successful academic, athletic and extracurricular programs.
Edmond ranks as one of the top districts in the state boasting 10 National Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence and seven Great Expectations Model Schools. In addition to academics, the district is noted for its achievements in athletics and the arts having won more than 80 Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association (OSSAA) state athletic championships in the past 12 years and dozens of OSSAA fine arts State Sweepstakes Awards.
“Edmond is fortunate to have highly effective teachers, significant parental involvement and a community that is highly engaged and supportive of our endeavors,” said Superintendent Bret Towne. “All of these key attributes contribute to the overall success of our district. We are proud of what we have accomplished in the past and can’t thank the Street of Dreams enough for contributing to our future successes.”
A portion of the donation will go directly to Centennial Elementary School, the Street of Dreams neighborhood school. Centennial Elementary serves nearly 800 children from the northeast side of Edmond in grades Pre-K through 5th grade.
“It has been a wonderful experience working with COHBA and the Street of Dreams,” said Jessele Miller, principal of Centennial Elementary School. “Our wonderful Parent Teacher Organization is actively involved in helping make the event a success and we can’t wait to welcome event-goers to our neck of the woods!”
With the continued growth of the Edmond community, the district opened its sixth middle school, Heartland Middle School, at the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year. The district has also purchased land east of I-35 to build additional schools, including a fourth high school which will be located on the southeast corner of Air Depot Boulevard and Covell Road. The new high school will open sometime in the next five or six years.
“Our mission as a district is to ‘empower all students to succeed in a changing society’,” said Dr. Angela Gruenwald, executive director of elementary education for EPS. “With the support we’ll receive as the Street of Dreams benefitting partner, we will have additional opportunities to invest in our students and encourage their development to be life-long learners.”
