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!
It is time for our PTA sponsored Reflections program! This year our students are encouraged to express themselves creatively by submitting a project that showcases their talents. This year's theme is "The world would be a better place if..." Students can enter multiple categories, but all work must originate from the student. No parent help! Information is coming home from our PTA this week. Look for a flyer in your child's backpack soon. Entry forms will be available outside of the office next week. All entries must be submitted by October 22nd. Mark your calendars!
Yesterday was the first day of Edgemont and Bellview's after school program! The kids were happy and excited to start. It was great to see so many smiles as I visited with students in the different areas of the program. Please remember that the after school program will be housed at Bellview Elementary School the entire year. The program provides services from 3:30pm-5:30pm everyday Monday through Friday! Services will also be provided from 1:40pm-5:30pm on early out Fridays. It is very important that all students are picked up no later than 5:30pm every day. Thanks for your support.
