Respect, Responsibility, Safety
Dear Edgewood Parents,
On the 5th day of Christmas…….. – yes that's right, we are down to our last 5 school days before the Winter/Christmas Break. This last week is full of spirit, performing and giving.
Leadership students continue to provide spirit by organizing another Spirit Week. See details for this further on in the newsletter.
Students are putting the final touches on their performances for this week's Songs of the Season Concert on Thursday. We hope you can make one of our shows.
As well, continuing with past practice, the Leadership sponsored Tree of Warmth is waiting to be filled with warm donations, new or nicely used items (coats, blankets, mitts, hats, scarves, socks) to give to those in need. All donations will be given to St. Vincent De Paul.
We would like to commend our student leadership team for their very giving spirit. In November $150 was raised for the Legion Poppy Campaign and $100 was raised for Movember to support men's health. Thank-you to everyone in our community who helped support these very worthy causes.
The grade 6/7 volleyball season ended last week with both the girls' and boys' teams taking on the teachers. This was a fun way to wrap up the season with the players and all the students who came to watch.
At our monthly assembly for December, the new theme of the month was introduced: gratitude. Students learned that gratitude is the quality of being thankful, readiness to show appreciation for, and to return kindness. The focus was for all of us to be grateful for the small, non-material things that bring us happiness and joy. This is a fitting message for this time of year.
We wish everyone in and connected to our Edgewood Community and very safe and happy holiday season. Thank you for supporting your child's learning at Edgewood.
