PTO notes

January 9, 2019

Hi everyone! How are those New Year’s resolutions going? Is one of your resolutions to be more involved in Edmunds Elementary PTO? We have a great opportunity for you if so. Next year we will be losing two of our PTO leaders—Jenny and Pam’s kiddos will be moving on to middle school. That leaves two openings for new leadership. If you feel even the slightest tingle of excitement at the prospect of taking on one of these roles, contact me, Stacey Kelleher, at this email address and we can chat. It would be ideal to have some people lined up to shadow Jenny, Pam and me for the rest of the year so that we can all be familiar with the expectations of the jobs.

School Musical News
The first readthrough of Mulan will be on Monday after school in the library from 2:50pm to 4 pm. All 3rd, 4th and 5th graders are expected to attend and will receive their part during this time.
If you are picking up your child, please be at the front door of the building by 4pm.


The Edmunds Elementary PTO is sponsoring the 11th Annual Family Math Night. Explore the wonders of math with your children and let them show you what they are learning. A variety of activities, math centers and home learning activities will be available for children of all ages, such as graphing, chess, games using dice and playing cards and many other fun activities. Prizes, pizza, desserts and drinks too! We will have National Honor Society students from BHS to help facilitate games so that parents can fully enjoy the night with their children. RSVP by sending an email to Rachel Shelley (rachskye) including your child’s name, grade level and number of people attending.

For those of you new to Math Night, here is how the night will work.

5:00-5:30 pizza will be served in the first grade hallway

5:30 – 7:00 pm: Math night begins. Games in the upper gym/cafeteria. Each student will go home with a packet full of games you can play at home.

We are also looking for donations of new or gently used — with all the pieces–math related games (Uno, Chutes and Ladders, Yahtzee, Phase 10, Dominoes, Set, Sequence, Chess, etc) for the raffle at the end of the night; we’d love a few donations of veggies and dip crackers and cheese as well as a few desserts. We also will be needing 3-5 people to help set up at 2 pm on Saturday the 26th and 3-5 people to help clean up afterwards. Please contact Rachel Shelley (rachskye) if you are able to contribute and/or help with set up and clean up. We hope to see you all there!
