Dear Baldwin Families,

It is my honor and pleasure to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! I hope you had a relaxing and fun summer break. I am extremely proud to serve as the Principal of this amazing learning community for the 4th year and to continue to support the students of Ed V. Baldwin!


Our theme this year is “Learning Is a Journey That Never Ends”. As we can all attest, education is constantly changing, but as a school family we will remain focused on student success and building bright futures. This new school year brings the promise of a renewed dedication, focus, and energy to the mission of teaching and learning. With that said, I am ready to kick this year off in true Ed V. Baldwin fashion!


I would like to welcome all our new staff and their families, whether you are joining us from another school in the district or have relocated from another city, state, or country. We are excited to share all that Ed V. Baldwin has to offer with you and believe you will soon feel as we do, that Ed. V. Baldwin is a special place for all children. Our teachers, support staff, and families are ready to welcome you into our home! Our incredible staff of educators have been here throughout the summer to prepare classrooms and the building for the new school year. We are grateful to our amazing staff as they worked all summer getting our school in pristine shape.


Ed V. Baldwin is such a special and gentle place to learn and grow. I am proud of our beautiful school and have high expectations for each and every student. Our students are kind, compassionate, and eager to learn. Together with our dedicated staff, we will strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe. We will continue to provide a rigorous and joyful inclusive school environment. Our overarching goal is to encourage active student engagement to foster a lifetime love for learning. I look forward to the start of the new school year and can’t wait to see each of you.


Your Proud Principal,

Meshonda L. Williams
