Respect, Responsibility, Safety
April 16th, 2018
Dear Edgewood Parents,
Happy April! Our first two weeks back have been eventful indeed. K to 6 students got "jiggy" with Aboriginal Metis cultural presenter Bev Lambert. Divisions 5-9 spent last week with National level coach and player, Lisa Davison, learning the fundamental skills of badminton through the Shuttle Time Badminton program offered through Badminton BC. This week it’s Divisions 1-4’s turn. Badminton is one of those activities that requires little cost and is a multifaceted physical activity. We are so fortunate to have her here teaching our students. In between these two activities there was a PAC Hot Lunch, a Popcorn Friday, and a Fruit and Veggie delivery of tomatoes. We thank the parent volunteers who have dedicated their time to offer these special and edible opportunities.
As you may or may not be aware, the City of Prince George is holding a public meeting regarding the proposed plan for open pit mining in the community. This meeting is tomorrow from 6-8 p.m in our gym.
Tonight, for parents of grade 7 students, is a parent meeting to discuss the high school transition process for these soon to be grade 8’s. All parents of grade 7 students are encouraged to attend.
Also, tonight is a presentation at PGSS by Safer Schools Together. This presentation will enlighten parents on how to keep their child safe in this very diverse and rapidly evolving digital world our students are exposed to. This presentation is from 7-8 p.m in the PGSS library.
Lastly, our next spirit week has an earth theme. Please read further for the activities that leadership students have planned to bring spirit to our school this month.
