Connecting Families and School Through Communication!

Dear Edgewood Families...

Hi, Everyone!

Well, things are moving along with our Edgewood construction projects, even with all of the rain we have had. If you have driven by during the last couple of weeks, you know that the circle drive and all of the parking lot has been removed. Now the construction company is beginning to fill in the area with gravel and cement curbs...which will be the framework for the permeable pavers. The play area in the back of our school will also be finished with the pavers, instead of the blacktop. The sign for the Green Campus Initiatives project is also pictured below.

Inside our school the Computer Lab has been dismantled, since we will have a Chrome Cart (with 30 ChromeBooks in each) for each grade level. The former Computer Lab will become the Gifted classroom space for Mrs. Tomasevich (who has made the switch from the 6th grade classroom.)

During these first summer weeks, I have across some web links for parents that I would like to share. Maybe there will be a couple of ideas you see to help keep the learning juices flowing during these months off from school!

Surviving the Summer with the Kids

Preventing the Summer Slide

and a long-time favorite

Wonderopolis with Camp Wonderopolis

Please remember you are also welcome to visit the school's web site and the LRC page. The Lazy Days of Summer Reading Program sheets are also available, and hopefully your child(ren) have already filled out some "Favorite Five" sheets to submit during our first week back from school.

Summer communication will continue...

Please continue to provide input or ask questions via this Smore, or my e-mail. It's been hard for me to get used to, but I also am hoping to Tweet more... to share links and information for our families through the Twitter link at @EdgeEagles.

Hope the 4th of July Holiday was joyful and our students are enjoying their time off for the summer!

Educationally yours,

Mrs. Hughes
