Help pack snack packs for the Edgewood Village!
The Edgewood Village is currently serving 19 children and their siblings every weekend. We have complete snack packs to last through the end of April.
On Friday, February 10, Gayle Sawyer will host a snack pack stuffing party at drop-off (8:35 AM) in the cafeteria. Those interested can email gayle.lb.sawyer@gmail.com to participate.
 
Reading Olympics is coming!
Students and teachers are gearing up for the upcoming Reading Olympics! It will be a celebration of reading where students will be able to work towards a Bronze, Silver or Gold certificate of achievement award. The goal is to raise $10,000 to support our school’s special programs, such as Artist-in-Residence, field trips, outdoor school and more. Students will be bringing home materials at the end of this month. To volunteer, email PTAEdgewood@gmail.com
Library Volunteers Needed
We need a few volunteers to help re-shelve books in the library each week. This could be done in the morning at drop off or at the end of the day before pick up. Please let Tanya in the office know (541-790-8700; bunson_t@4j.lane.edu) if you are available to help re-shelve books and which morning(s) or afternoon(s) work best for you.
