Announcements Aug 30th

Message from the Principal
Greetings Edgewood Families,
I have a couple of important announcements that I would like to share with you………
  • I am happy to announce that we have hired Courtney Morris as a half time facilitating teacher. Courtney comes to us from Wisconsin where he had over a decade of experience as a 4th grade classroom teacher, 5th grade classroom teacher, and a 2nd-5th grade TAG facilitator. Courtney will teach 4th grade math, 2nd grade literacy, and provide TAG support to our teachers and students. Please help me welcome Courtney to Edgewood. Also, please note that Courtney’s addition to our staff will not change your student’s classroom placement. Courtney’s presence will allow us to have smaller math groups in 4th grade and smaller reading groups in 2nd grade.

Volunteer Orientation

The Eugene 4J School District is hosting a volunteer orientation on August 29th from 10:00am to 11:00am. Click here for the flier for the event.

Please remember that all volunteers are required to have completed a background check prior to volunteering at Edgewood.  This can take up to a few weeks to process.  If you are interested in volunteering in any capacity, please click here.

Parent volunteers must complete the criminal background check form only once every two years. If you are unsure if you need to complete the background check you can email our school secretary Tanya Bunson with any questions.

Welcome Information from Principal Moore

I hope you are enjoying your summer!  We look forward to seeing all of you in September!  School starts on Wednesday, September 6th and we will host an open house the day before on Tuesday, September 5th from 2:00-3:00.  This gives students a chance to meet their teachers and see their classrooms.  The office will be open to accept financial contributions and medications that day as well.

Still need volunteers for 5th grade promotion breakfast!

It looks like the kitchen is still short on volunteers for our 5th grade promotion breakfast. Please let Tanya know if you can help out with this tomorrow, Thursday June 22 from 7:00am-9:30.  It would be very much appreciated.  We are asking K-4th grade parents to help so that the 5th grade parents can enjoy the breakfast with their kids.

Edgewood School Garden Produce

The school garden has bounty to share! Come pick up some fresh produce from our table Thursday 11:30 on the breezeway. Donations toward a new hose and weed whacker appreciated!

Pick up Medications!

All medications that have been signed in at Edgewood must be picked up by Thursday, June 22nd at noon. We cannot keep medications over the summer and cannot check them out to the kids. All medications left will be discarded on June 23rd. Please plan and pick any you have checked in up.
