Due to the tremendous response to the Fitness Fun Run fundraiser, we are extending the contest deadline for donations to Thursday, October 2nd. If your child has already turned in his or her envelope, please place any additional donations in a regular, sealed envelope marked with your child's name and the teacher's name as well as the donation total all clearly marked. Class and individual prizes are still up for grabs! So, get your donations in by this Thursday, October 2nd.
Here is an electronic copy of our monthly newsletter. There is a lot of valuable information included. Keep yourself informed and enjoy!
Edgemont's Fitness Fun Run is coming!! All students and staff will participate in a one mile run/walk around our neighborhood streets this Thursday, September 25th. Parents are invited to volunteer with our PTA to help support this wonderful school event (please visit www.eepta.org). Parents are also invited to join their student/s during the Fun Run. Come out, support our school, run our neighborhood streets, and join our fitness celebration.
Parking is very limited for this event. Getting to our school parking lot will be tricky since we will have roads closed off for the safety of our students. This event is celebrating fitness, so get in the spirit and walk/run over to the school on the morning of September 25th. Leave the car at home!
This week marks the final days Edgemont students will participate in the Walk More in Four program. During the month of September our students have been encouraged to walk or ride bikes to school. If a student lives too far from the school, he/she can participate by walking and riding a bike in his/her neighborhood. Edgemont chose to participate in this program to get our students in shape for our Fitness Fun Run taking place this week! Please encourage your child to walk or ride a bike. Look for your child's Walk More in Four form to come home next week. We need parents to sign the forms our students have been filling out all month, and return them to school so we can enter our students in the contest to win fun prizes!
