We are hoping to get several people from Edgewood to attend the state’s Ways and Means Committee hearing on Saturday, Feb. 25th from 1 to 3 p.m. The legislators are in Eugene to hear from Oregonians about how looming budget cuts will affect them. With a $1.8 billion state budget deficit, Oregon families are facing massive cuts to schools, health care, and the services they rely on daily. A Better Oregon is asking for people to show up to this meeting to tell them: Cuts to schools, health care and critical services are unacceptable so long as the world’s largest corporations pay the lowest corporate taxes in the entire nation here in Oregon.
The meeting is in Rooms 308-309 of Building 17 (The Forum) at Lane Community College, 4000 E 30th Ave.
The office is in need of the following items. Please bring any of them by if you can!
- new / gently used coloring books
- plastic grocery bags (to bring home wet /muddy clothes)
- flushable wipes
- girls’ underwear (preferably smaller sizes)
- stretchy pants / sweats
The Eugene School District has adjusted this year’s school calendar to restore five of the school days that were missed due to hazardous winter weather.
Four school days will be made up at the end of the school year in June. The new final day for students is Thursday, June 22.
At elementary schools, the fifth school day will be restored on May 5, which was previously scheduled to be a no-school day for teacher planning and professional development. Certain other days also have been changed in the revised calendar to balance the school year.
Please check our school’s calendar for additional no-school and early-release days that are not part of the districtwide calendar. For more calendar information and other formats, please visit www.4j.lane.edu/calendars.

So far we have turned in 3,268 Box Tops. At this point we have earned $344.60 with Box Tops clippings and two other programs: Costco Golden Box Tops Challenge and Safeway’s eBoxTops just for U program. Last year, we were able to raise over $1,000 collecting box tops for our school. Every box top clipping helps! Box Top Bill, and the Box Top Queen will try to visit every classroom next week to remind students to keep bringing in their box tops.
Please consider signing up for the Safeway eBoxTops just for U program on your Safeway Club Card. Go to your Safeway Club Card account and under the “View By Event” Category – click on “Box Tops for Education” and register “Edgewood Community Elementary” as your school.
Thank you! The Box Top Team
