Fun Night is this Friday!
Edgewood’s annual Fun Night is this Friday, April 21! This is our school’s signature community building and fundraising event-a night that students look forward to each year. This year, in addition to carnival games, a silent auction and food carts, Eugene’s own Soul Vibrator will be bringing their sounds of funk fusion to a tent outside the cafeteria from 6:45 to 7:30 p.m. Also, Threadbare Print House is bringing a mobile silk screener to put our new school logo on your favorite T-shirt or bag-for only $5.  Don’t forget to bring a shirt from home if you want to have that done! Can’t wait for this great family, community event!
