Volunteers Needed

Help with Edgewood’s Snack Pack Program

The Edgewood Village Snack Pack Program offers a supply of meals and snacks for around 20 children over their weekends and extended breaks, free of charge. Bags are distributed on the last school day before the weekend or break by parent volunteers.  This program can use volunteers to assist with weekend distribution, food drives, and packing and sorting bags.  If you are interested, please sign up at http://signup.com/go/mkvhzGC, and email gayle.lb.sawyer@gmail.com for details.

Welcome Information from Principal Moore

I hope you are enjoying your summer!  We look forward to seeing all of you in September!  School starts on Wednesday, September 6th and we will host an open house the day before on Tuesday, September 5th from 2:00-3:00.  This gives students a chance to meet their teachers and see their classrooms.  The office will be open to accept financial contributions and medications that day as well.
 

Donate to the Edgewood Garden!

Edgewood Community Elementary School garden is looking for a few tools for summer maintenance. We need:

  • a gas powered weed eater
  • a gas powered lawn mower

If anyone is thinking of upgrading this summer, please consider us. These would need to be in good working order as we are staffed with volunteers. Thank you!
