Principal Update 🧡

Dear Wonderful Edgar Road Families,

 

We have been moving and groovin here at Edgar Road. Kids are engaged in great learning, exploring, playing and thinking. It is my continual pleasure to see teachers do what they love to do - teach, play, laugh, and learn with the little people they love.

 

We continue to have student learn about Hispanic Heritage Month which spans from Sept 15 to October 15. We are learning about people who have contributed to Heritage Culture.

 

If you celebrate Rosh Hashanah, then Shanah Tovah!

 

October is National Bullying Awareness Month, LGBTQIA History Month! We will also learn about Indigenous People's Day which is on October 10th, and Diwali begins on the 24th.

 

The One Book One School committee is planning our second book of the year. Details, talking and learning points, and titles are coming.

 

Enjoy this beautiful fall weather and each other!

 

Warmly,

Tracy Nomensen

Thank you to all of our custodial staff!
 
 

Thank you to all of our custodial staff!

In over twenty years, I have never worked with such a diligent, conscientious, thorough, kind custodial staff. All the kids know our lead day custodian, Mr. Bates. He knows them by name, is a kind supportive adult, and leads a fantastic crew of equally great people. I have never been in a school with such shiney hallways and clean surface areas. In an era where custodians are literally keeping kids and staff safe, we have THE BEST TEAM!

 

We have a TERRIFIC group of custodians who work very hard every day to keep our school neat and beautiful. We want to show them how much they are appreciated on Monday, October 3rd. Send in any thank you's to:

David Bates

Robert Frazier

James Banks

To go along with our OBOS book the 3rd - 5th grade students have been creating a symbolic self portrait to display in the hall. The students used their heart maps and other brainstorming techniques to list the people, places, and things that were important to them. The students then challenged themselves to create a project that combined these items. This is a very abstract concept and some students picked something they love and some were a little more introspective on the idea of a symbolic self portrait.

 

Volunteering?

If you are volunteering on a school field trip or in the classroom, you need to have your name run through our Raptor volunteer system. This system does a quick background check to verify that you are safe to be around our students. This can be done in person with your drivers license or you can email Lisa your name and date of birth and she can run it through the system manually. Thank you for your help!
