Respect, Responsibility, Safety
Fantastic February, is what this month has been so far at Edgewood, and it is not over yet. This final week is full of more opportunities for bucket filling, walk and talk, hockey for heart, anti-bullying learning along with the opportunity to support National Pink Shirt/Anti-Bullying Day. Throw in there a Hip Hop Hoops Cultural Performance, a Popcorn Day and a fruit/veggie/milk snack delivery, does it really get any better than this? All of this on top of all the great learning happening for students in the classroom every day. Thanks to staff leadership, this year will see the come back of an Edgewood Talent Show. Please read further in the newsletter for information. As well, a letter will be going home for students interested in auditioning. There is a lot of enthusiasm for this amongst students. Local Indigenous artist, Carla Joseph has received all student design contributions for our PAC sponsored front entry mural. Once the wood arrives, which will be soon, she will embark on a personalized, mural for our front foyer. This is very exciting for our school community. We thank PAC for helping make this happen. Our community continues to be very giving. The recent Primary 100s Day Food for Hunger drive brought in approximately 162 nonperishable food items for St. Vincent. The center was very grateful for this donation. Looking ahead, some of you may remember last October 2018, Mr. Rinta Santti, a Principal from Finland was visiting our school on a leadership exchange. I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to visit Finland this March during our Spring Break to learn about the education system there. I will be gone March 13th and return to school April 6th. District Principal, Angela Zummack will lead our school during my absence.
