Edgewood’s school counselor, Rebecca Ledbetter, starts each day off with a morning announcement. These announcements remind students to be kind, responsible for their own actions and positive. Rebecca sometimes adds a joke or tells the students about silly “holidays,” such as Talk Like a Pirate Day. She’ll leave students with inspirational quotes also–one recent quote: “We change the world with one act of kindness at a time.” What a lovely way for our students to start the day! (Rebecca is pictured giving the morning announcement in September)
Picture Days next week!
Thank you for being patient as we work out the kinks in our Picture Day schedule. We will send out an email as soon as we have the class schedules figured out! Please let the office know if you are interested in helping out escorting kids to the camera and back to class again.
Box Tops collected year round
It’s time to kick off the 2018-2019 “Big Box Tops Challenge!” At Edgewood we have had a goal of 10,000 Box Tops every year, this year we would love to beat that, even by just one Box Top.
Look for the handout coming home with your student! There will be a sheet that holds twenty-five Box Tops, but before you glue or tape the Box Tops to the sheet please make sure they are not expired. Just make sure your student’s name and classroom number is on the sheet. The classes are competing for trophies that are awarded three times a year. THANK YOU for helping support our school!
Help with Picture Days September 24-27
We will soon be sending out a classroom schedule for school pictures. We need a few volunteers from each classroom to help shuttle kids to the picture taking station and back to class. Please let the office know if you are interested in helping out on picture days! Please make sure that you have done your background check!
