Principal's Message

Dear Harriet Eddy Community,

It is with great pride that I welcome you to Harriet Eddy for the 2019-2020 school year. This past year we have accomplished a great deal and these accomplishments would not have been possible without your support. 

Information regarding our IB MYP implementation can be found on the IB Program page.  I would also encourage you to visit our Vision page to learn more about Eddy's initiatives and commitments on providing an Exceptional Educational Experience for all students. Our web address is  You can find a variety of information including information on Parent and Student VUE portals. We also frequently post on our Facebook page venue is used for our events and activities.

This year marks my 14th year at Harriet Eddy. As a former Teacher and Vice Principal at Harriet Eddy, I will use my knowledge and experience of the community to continue to develop a regional approach to our students’ education. I am excited to continue to work with you as your partner in education to ensure your child’s success. Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Harriet Eddy by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners. 

To help facilitate community dialogue, I would like to invite you to “Breakfast with Benson” on the first Tuesday of each month. Starting at 8:15, we will meet to discuss educational issues important to you. Light food and coffee will be provided. This is an informal drop-in time for you as parents to have a voice at Harriet Eddy. Please stop in to pick up a muffin and coffee before heading off to start your day.

Additionally, I would like to invite you to participate in our parent involvement group called the “Hornet’s NEST (Nurturing Exceptional Students Together). The Hornet’s NEST is our parent group that volunteers on campus during the school day and at events. If you are interested in more information, please email our Vice Principal Sandi Peterson at

As a reminder, we will be hosting our annual “Early Schedule Pick Up and Parent Workshop” event starting at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, August 14. The first day of school is Thursday, August 15. I look forward to another great year at Harriet Eddy M.S.
