We hope you are all enjoying this last bit of summer vacation and are getting excited about returning to Edmunds for a great school year.
The following are important dates and times for next week and beyond:
Tuesday, August 28, 11-2: "Green Up" at the grounds of Edmunds Elementary. Children are welcome to attend and help out, but must be accompanied by an adult.
Tuesday, August 28, 3-4: Ice cream social.
Wednesday, August 29th is the first day of school! There will be a coffee hour on the front lawn of school from 8:15-9:15.
*Dismissal on Wednesday the 29th is at 1:50. Note that every other day of the week, dismissal is at 2:50. Wednesday dismissal is always at 1:50.
Friday, September 14th, 5:30-7:00 pm: Welcome Back BBQ.
We still need a couple more scoopers for the ice cream social. If you can help out, please contact Stacey Kelleher at staceyhk1568.
Traffic circle helpers: Have you ever wondered who are those amazing people who help our kids get out of our cars and safely into school each morning? They are the excellent traffic circle helpers and they are parents just like you! We are looking for traffic circle helpers for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. This is a great volunteer gig because it is very well-defined and consistent: 8:00-8:15 one day a week. If you are interested, please contact Stefanie Waite at waite.
Parents can vote for Burlington online for a JetBlue grant that could benefit the Fletcher Free Library with a $25,000 purchase in books for kids, and a $5000 reading room renovation! The link is: soarwithreading.com. Check it out on the library website at fletchfree.org, and here’s a link to a recent Free Press article:
We’ll need folks to vote A LOT between now and August 31st because people can vote AS MANY TIMES AS POSSIBLE! The library is such a wonderful resource for Edmunds kids, and the grant would really benefit our kids and community in an immediate and powerful way.
Thanks, and hope to see you all at the upcoming events!
