Help with Picture Days September 24-27
We will soon be sending out a classroom schedule for school pictures. We need a few volunteers from each classroom to help shuttle kids to the picture taking station and back to class. Please let the office know if you are interested in helping out on picture days! Please make sure that you have done your background check!
Here is the new list for school supplies by grade level.
From Food for Lane County
We invite all children and youth age 18 and younger to eat lunch for free during the summer months. Staff and volunteers serve meals at schools, parks and community centers located throughout Lane County. Each summer, FFLC serves thousands of lunches and breakfasts to children through the Summer Food Program. See flyer for lists of sites!
Edgewood to meet technology/furniture needs next year, thanks to PTA
PTA members voted to spend about $27,000 to upgrade severely outdated technology (for example, projectors that project images too small for kids in the back to see and computers as old as 2005) and furniture needs, such as kindergarten chairs and desks for a new kinder class next year and broken chairs that teachers are making due with. The money is available through a special fund that was set up when Evergreen Elementary and Edgewood Elementary merged.
School schedules are set for next year
The district has set standardized schedules for next year. Edgewood will start its day at 8:30 and end at 3:00 Monday-Thursday. Fridays are early release ending at 1:45.
No Medications Left Behind!
All student oral medications will be discarded on June 18th. No Exceptions!
Set yourself a reminder to pick up medications no later than June 15th, the last day of school. We cannot keep medications over the summer and we cannot check them out to your child. Epi pens and inhalers will be sent home with your child only with permission. Call 541-790-8700 to arrange this.
Popcorn sales end this week
June 6th–this Wednesday–is the last time popcorn will be available for sale after school until next year (if we have a popcorn coordinator). Be sure to tell your students! The sale of popcorn helps the K-2 graders go on field trips!
Check for library books at home!
Reminder: All Library books are due back at school now! Parents, please help your kids with being responsible and returning their library books.
Lost and Found
Items missing? Please be sure to check out our lost and found. We will be donating all of our lost and found items on Friday, June 15th at 1:00.
FREE DONUTS for parents at PTA information table Thursday, June 7
Co-presidents Beth Casper and Julia McMorran will have a table set up after school on Thursday, June 7, to hand out free donuts to parents and answer any questions you have about the PTA and see if one of our volunteer opportunities fits you! We have all kinds of volunteer opportunities, including Popcorn Coordinator, Social Media Editor and Newsletter Editor, that need to be filled for next year. These things won’t happen next year without volunteers! If we all donated an hour a month, what a difference it would make! Stop by and say hi!
Tuesday June 5
Stop by Yogurt Extreme on Tuesday, June 5, anytime between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m. and 25 percent of your purchases will be donated to Edgewood. Don’t forget your flyer (attached)! Thank you for supporting Edgewood.
