Hadih(hello), Bonjour, Edgewood Parents!
It's a two for one week this week - two months in one week. November ends and December begins. Unbelievable! Amazingly, only 15 school days until winter break. This can be a very energetic time of year, with lots going on. Our grade 7 leaders have many fun theme days planned as well as the yearly Tree of Warmth campaign. Students will find their inner dance through dance and visual arts. The latter is in preparation for our second winter virtual art show. For a variety of reasons (logistics, time, space, ongoing COVID concerns) staff have opted to, once again, focus on the visual arts rather than the performing arts this December. This was not an easy decision, but the bust one for the school community at this time.Thank you for understanding. The art show is set to debut, Friday, December 17th after lunch. The dumps of snow, though not long lasting enough have brought the sliders out, much to the delightof students. Our Kindergarten students were introduced to this fun activity last week. Believe it or not, there is a lot to consider for sliding to that it can be done safely, understanding directions, how to slide safety, how and where to walk at the end of a slide to avoid collisions with those coming down the hill, waiting patiently to slide, etc. The question often is asked if students can bring their won sliders to school. Due to spacing issues inside the school, we ask students to use the school sliders that PAC has generously provided. Students who have been sliding so far are doing a GREAT job sharing and following expectations. Snow pants must be worn to slide. Now we just need more snow! Happy end of November and beginning of December!
