EES NO FRILLS FUNDRAISER:

Remember that your donation is fully tax-deductible. What’s more, many local businesses will match your contribution, so be sure to ask your employer about this opportunity to raise even more funds for our school. Donations can be made online at EES PTO or https://eespto.org/fundraisers/nofrills-fundraiser/ or be sent to EES PTO to the front office at EES.

Hi everyone!

A shout out to all of the room parents and volunteers who made Halloween fun and festive last week!

We are passing along this announcement for the folks in charge of this year’s musical:

We are excited to announce that the Edmunds Elementary School Play this year will be Mulan! There will be lots of fantastic parts and we hope to see many of 3rd-5th graders participate as well as 1st & 2nd graders sign up for the play chorus! Rehearsals will start in January and the play will be on March 15th &16th. To help with the cost of the play we are doing a fundraiser with Danforth Pewter’s beautiful ornaments and zipper pulls, all made by hand in Middlebury! Order forms were sent home on Monday of this week. Please return the forms to the front office or to your kid’s teacher by November 12th. Checks should be made to EES PTO Drama. You will receive your products by the end of November.
