Come watch a family movie at Edgewood!

A movie night is planned for Friday, January 22, at 6:30 p.m. This is a family event so please do not drop your child off. Popcorn and snacks will be available for purchase with proceeds going towards Outdoor School! The movies are “The Incredibles” and “Finding Nemo.” Come enjoy a movie, snacks and the fun of a “theater” filled with school friends! Please bring a food item for the Edgewood Village Food Pantry as part of your admission. The food pantry is need of canned food, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, granola bars and other snacks, and other staples.

Rainy day recess!

In order to have a chance to run around and get some fresh air, outdoor recess is the norm.  This means that kids are outside even if it’s cold,damp and drizzly.  Please remind your kids to bring their jackets to school.

Stretchy pants

The office could use “stretchy pants” (leggings and sweats).  For a variety of reasons, often involving puddles and wet slides, kids need to make mid-day outfit changes.  We are running low on pants that can easily fit all sizes of kids.  If you have any stretchy pants that can be donated, please bring them in!
