Respect, Responsibility, Safety
February 19th, 2018
Dear Edgewood Parents,
Friendship, love and kindness, our themes of the month, have been at the forefront of our February days and that was Student Leadership’s goal. If you haven’t already, please check out the Random Acts of Kindness display in the front foyer. There you will see evidence of some examples of kindness given and received so far this month.
Our recent Valentine’s Day Bake Sale for the Humane Society was a huge success with approximately $250 raised. Well done, Edgewood! We thank all the bakers who donated items for this very worthy cause. This may become a Valentine’s Day tradition. Also on the 14th students got into the spirit by wearing Valentines’ Day colours and by sharing special messages and acknowledgements of friendship to their peers.
Hearts continue to pump as well. Grade 6/7 basketball is well underway thanks to our staff coaches. The recent snowfall has made for some deep snow in the field that students are enjoying plowing through and some manmade plow hills that are great for climbing and digging. Our students are giving their hearts a work out every day at the breaks.
Our grade 7 Quiz Me team had their hearts pumping with excitement and perhaps nerves as they joined numerous other elementary schools recently to write the qualifying test for this year’s Quiz Me gameshow sponsored by CKPG, UNBC and SD57. Results should be out soon.
Lastly, we would like to congratulate two of our staff members, Mrs. Lancaster and Mrs. Froment. They will be recognized this week for their 25 years of service with SD57 at a special dinner. Congratulations!
