Help fill the Winter Break Food Boxes!

The 18 days of winter break can bring anxiety and food insecurity for some of our families. To support these families, Edgewood Village is putting together Winter Break food boxes filled with non-perishable items, fresh produce, proteins and dairy. Some of the items needs for the food boxes include peanut butter and jelly, cereal, pasta and sauce, canned meat, canned beans, canned fruit or vegetables, rice or rice dinners, granola bars, applesauce and crackers. Bring these items in by Wednesday, Dec. 16th. If your family could benefit from one of these boxes, please contact Secretary Tanya at 541.790.8700 or bunson_t@4j.lane.edu

Last PTA meeting of 2015!

PTA meets on Tuesday, Dec. 15th from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Edgewood Library and you don’t want to miss this one!

16 Edgewood OBOB Teams  

16 OBOB Teams have been formed! That is the most we have ever had here at Edgewood!! Edgewood kids love to read great books. Over Winter: (1) kids will be busy reading and rereading their books, (2) And starting to memorize authors and titles exactly off their bookmarks. The next meetings are Jan.13 & Feb.3 with the FINAL BATTLE WEEK Feb 8-11 (All Week after school). Questions: BreeBouse@Hotmail.com or  suspcarey@yahoo.com

Need a coat or other clothing?

If you have a need for winter clothing, please feel free to “shop” the bins in the clothing closet/food pantry. The clothing closet is behind the double doors in the hallway between the cafeteria and the gym. Bins are marked by clothing type and there are many warm coats available as well. There is no need to make an appointment, just take what you might need-but all visitors to Edgewood campus must check in at the front office. Thank you!
