PTA- last meeting this year

Last PTA meeting June 5

Our PTA meeting is now the first week of June. It is Tuesday, June 5th from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Edgewood Library. Childcare is provided by the Edgewood PTA free to parents in the cafeteria. At the budget meeting in early May, PTA members agreed to spend about $27,000 to upgrade severely outdated technology (for example, projectors that project images too small for kids in the back to see and computers as old as 2005) and furniture needs, such as kindergarten chairs and desks for a new kinder class next year and broken chairs that teachers are making due with. The money is available through a special fund that was set up when Evergreen Elementary and Edgewood Elementary merged. This proposal will be voted on at the June meeting. Also on the agenda is a presentation by Sarah Mazze, the school district’s safe routes to school program manager.
