Please return Fun Run pledges
The Fun Run was a huge success with the committed, active students, great weather, organized volunteers and fun music. Please don’t forget to return your Fun Run envelopes/pledges. Remember, the class with the highest pledge participation wins a class party with extra recess!
See you at Curriculum Night!

Thursday night is Curriculum Night and it is a wonderful opportunity to find out about what your student is learning this year. You’ll also get a chance to meet the other teachers at Edgewood-such as the physical education and music teachers.

Schedule for Curriculum Night: 
6:00-6:25 –  Kg-2nd grade meet in their classrooms
6:30-6:45 – EVERYONE meets in the gym
6:50-7:15 – 3rd – 5th grade meet in classrooms
7:15 – 7:45 –  5th grade only – Outdoor school information

Childcare will be provided for $3/child.  Parents can bring their kids to the cafeteria for check in.
No school Friday
Don’t forget that there is no school on Friday because it is an in-service day. Enjoy the 3-day weekend!
Help in the garden!
On Tuesdays from 8:30-9:30 a.m. and 2:45-3:45 p.m. garden work is getting done and we need help! We need help digging up more grass, moving a couple yards compost, and planting bulbs. Come check it out (and get a sneak peek at what your students are doing in the garden too!)
Popping popcorn poppers needed!
We are looking for popcorn volunteers to help make popcorn and bag it on Wednesdays. Proceeds go to the primary grades to help cover costs for field trips and other learning opportunities.  We’ll be able to start popping and selling popcorn once we have a few volunteers.  Commitment would be one or two Wednesdays a month. Please let Tanya at the front office know: 541-790-8700 or bunson_t@4j.lane.edu.
Plan for Mazzi’s next Monday!

Edgewood’s next dine-and-donate event is next Monday, Oct. 17th at Mazzi’s. A flyer will come home with your student this week. Grab some friends and eat out for a good cause!

Mark your calendars for Movie Night!
Edgewood PTA is hosting a movie night on Friday, Oct. 21. This is a fun time to hang out with other families and watch a movie with your kiddo! More details to come…

Thank you Anna Galasthe dedicated Fun Run Committee members and all the volunteers for an incredible 2016 Fun Run. Everyone did an amazing job, and the students and parents loved the color coordination at the event. Thank you for all of the advanced planning for this wonderful event!

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped out on Picture Day!  This was our first time working with Northwest Exposure and having the pictures taken outside.  It was a huge help having kids get to their photo shoot and back to class.

Thank you ,

We’ll see you in the breezeways,
