Last PTA meeting of the year Tuesday!
We are wrapping up our PTA meetings – and our last one is tomorrow, Tuesday, June 7 in the Edgewood Library at 6:30 p.m. The agenda includes electing officers for next year’s PTA, and setting the calendar for next year. In order to run for office or vote for officers, you must be a PTA member (meaning you paid your $10 dues). Please e-mail vicepresident.PTAEdgewood@gmail.com if you are interested.

Come out for Edgewood’s Field Day!


Edgewood’s Field Day is Tuesday, June 14, and it promises to be great fun for all the students. The Kinder through 2nd graders will have field day from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and the 3rd through 5th graders will have field day from 1:15-2:30 p.m. We’ll need 2-3 volunteers from each class to help the students with the races/games. We are using Volunteerspot to organize for this event.
