Box Tops update!

Over Winter Break, Box Tops coordinators Brian and Bobbie Nessler sent in more than 2,000 Box Tops! That means Edgewood has raised more than $600 since we started Dec. 1. To reach our goal, we need to collect about 4,000 more Box Tops by the end of February. Keep on clipping!

After-school opportunity

The Salmon House Writers Workshop is offering a fun after-school program for elementary school students: Wild Imagination Group. This group is all about fun and discovery of the wonder of words.

Appreciations

Thank you so much to our Box Tops coordinators Brian and Bobbie Nessler for their work over Winter Break mailing in Box Tops. Thank you!

With the generous support of our school community, Edgewood Village put together amazing Winter Break boxes of food for Edgewood families. Thank you to those who donated and those who volunteered to hand them out or deliver the boxes.
