Donations being accepted now for Fun Night Silent Auction! We would love to have a weekend at a vacation home (grandparents?), an hour or two of your special talents, a gift certificate to your business, your home-made art or craft, or your very gently used auctionable items. Local businesses are generously stepping up as well. Get ready for a great silent auction!
Contact Robin Detmer at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 541-654-7206 with donations. Thank you!
The office could use jackets for kids that are cold at recess and of course we will always take donations of stretchy pants (thank you to those that have generously brought some in!)- all sizes K-5. Thank you!
Tomorrow, Edgewood’s winning OBOB team will be competing against teams from across the region. We want to wish them the best of luck. We are so proud of them and all our Edgewood Readers!
Our student council is kicking off an Edgewood Spirit Week next week. Spirit Week is where you have one theme for each day of the week. This is the schedule for our up coming Spirit Week:
Monday, March 20 – Cozy Clothes Day (Pajamas, sweat pants, etc.)
Tuesday, March 21 – Superhero Day (Pick a Superhero to act like your superhero for the whole day. Dress up is optional)
Wednesday – Wacky Wednesday (Crazy Hair, mis – match clothes, etc.)
Thursday – Take a Break Day ( Nothing going on regular school day)
Friday – Spirit Day (Fun exciting day – Student council will decorate the school)
We have raised almost $13,000 this week!!! So many students have turned in their envelopes! It’s not too late. Envelopes turned in by the end of the day today will still count towards their class participation rate. Some classes are very close to reaching the 100% goal!
Donations can still be brought in after this week. Please let us know they are for the Reading Olympics and we will count them towards the total.
Thank you to everyone who has participated and a special thank you to Ali Megan for her outstanding work organizing our first ever Reading Olympics!
Your child’s Reading Olympics envelope is due this week, whether it includes a donation or not. This is a celebration of reading-with the hope of sparking a passion that will last a lifetime! Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support our school’s special programs, such as Artist-in-Residence, field trips, outdoor school and more. Remember, even the smallest pledges add up. We hope that your child enjoyed recording his/her minutes reading and is proud of the effort!
Coordinators Brian and Bobbie Nessler are extending our Box Top Challenge until the end of the school year so please keep your eyes out for the Box Tops on products and clip them for Edgewood. Thank you for your school support!
We try to have kids have a chance to run around at recess time in the fresh air even when there is a light rain. Often the rain has stopped, but the grass is wet and there are many opportunities to get wet. Please have your kids dress for the weather. It is safe to assume that recess is outside. It is helpful for the office to pack an extra set of clothes in backpacks in case anyone slips in the mud or gets wet from a puddle. We appreciate our recess supervisors for getting those kids out there in the fresh air!
In these fun and active classes hosted by Yoga Playgrounds, kids will stretch and energize their bodies and minds through individual and group poses, mindfulness games and creative relaxation. Packed with playfulness, positivity and fun, these classes give kids the tools they need to manage their behaviors to lead happier, healthier and more peaceful lives. After school on Fridays, April 14 – June 9. Register and more info at http://www.yogaplaygrounds.net
