Summer Free Lunch Program

From Food for Lane County

We invite all children and youth age 18 and younger to eat lunch for free during the summer months. Staff and volunteers serve meals at schools, parks and community centers located throughout Lane County. Each summer, FFLC serves thousands of lunches and breakfasts to children through the Summer Food Program.  See flyer for lists of sites!

New and exciting additions from the PTA

Edgewood to meet technology/furniture needs next year, thanks to PTA

PTA members voted to spend about $27,000 to upgrade severely outdated technology (for example, projectors that project images too small for kids in the back to see and computers as old as 2005) and furniture needs, such as kindergarten chairs and desks for a new kinder class next year and broken chairs that teachers are making due with. The money is available through a special fund that was set up when Evergreen Elementary and Edgewood Elementary merged.

Pick up your Medications.

No Medications Left Behind!

All student oral medications will be discarded on June 18th.  No Exceptions!

Set yourself a reminder to pick up medications no later than June 15th, the last day of school.  We cannot keep medications over the summer and we cannot check them out to your child. Epi pens and inhalers will be sent home with your child only with permission.  Call 541-790-8700 to arrange this.

Reminders

Popcorn sales end this week

June 6th–this Wednesday–is the last time popcorn will be available for sale after school until next year (if we have a popcorn coordinator). Be sure to tell your students! The sale of popcorn helps the K-2 graders go on field trips!

 

Check for library books at home!

Reminder: All Library books are due back at school now! Parents, please help your kids with being responsible and returning their library books.

FREE DONUTS!!

FREE DONUTS for parents at PTA information table Thursday, June 7

Co-presidents Beth Casper and Julia McMorran will have a table set up after school on Thursday, June 7, to hand out free donuts to parents and answer any questions you have about the PTA and see if one of our volunteer opportunities fits you! We have all kinds of volunteer opportunities, including Popcorn Coordinator, Social Media Editor and Newsletter Editor, that need to be filled for next year. These things won’t happen next year without volunteers! If we all donated an hour a month, what a difference it would make! Stop by and say hi!

PTA- last meeting this year

Last PTA meeting June 5

Our PTA meeting is now the first week of June. It is Tuesday, June 5th from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Edgewood Library. Childcare is provided by the Edgewood PTA free to parents in the cafeteria. At the budget meeting in early May, PTA members agreed to spend about $27,000 to upgrade severely outdated technology (for example, projectors that project images too small for kids in the back to see and computers as old as 2005) and furniture needs, such as kindergarten chairs and desks for a new kinder class next year and broken chairs that teachers are making due with. The money is available through a special fund that was set up when Evergreen Elementary and Edgewood Elementary merged. This proposal will be voted on at the June meeting. Also on the agenda is a presentation by Sarah Mazze, the school district’s safe routes to school program manager.
