Thanks to all the parents and students who made attendance a priority last week. Our school's average attendance across the entire week was 96%! That is amazing! Let's finish October strong and see if we can beat last week's average.
Come to school!
Arrive on time!
For every 25 Box Tops, Labels for Education or printer cartridges your class turns in now through October 27th, you will receive a Ghost to haunt the classroom of your choice! The top class from K-2 and the top class from 3-5 with the most Ghosts haunting will win a Root-beer Float party sponsored by Edgemont's fabulous PTA.
Please remember to...
1. Trim labels
2. Check expiration dates that they are not expired and are intact.
3. Send items in an envelope or small Ziploc bag to your teacher.
Regular school attendance makes a positive difference when becoming college and career-ready. During the month of October we have three goals for every student at Edgemont:
1. Stay healthy!
2. Come to school!
3. Arrive on time!
Monday, October 13th is our Red Ribbon Week kick off assembly at 9:00am. Our NOVA officer, Jason Brown, has coordinated special appearances from our local police and fire departments. Patrol cars and fire engines will be in front of Edgemont Elementary Monday morning for students to look at and possibly sit in! Students will learn the history of how Red Ribbon Week began, and facts about how drugs can effect their lives during our assembly. Thank you Officer Brown for coordinating this event for Edgemont students!
