Edgewood's Tiger Talk

April 2016

From the Desk of Mrs. Boyd

I can't believe it's already April! Here are a few updates:

  1. We're working towards becoming a recognized "School of Character". As part of this work, we're reexamining our core values. We'd love your input on this quick survey: http://goo.gl/forms/v0wjVRd9bI Please take a minute to fill it out!
  2. As warm-weather approaches, please help us ensure safety and a learning environment by having your child not wear the following to school: flip-flops, spaghetti-strap tank tops, and/or very short shorts.
  3. As some of you know, I'm expecting my 2nd child on or around May 15th. While I'm out, Mrs. Liszewski, a retired Assistant Principal from GHS, will be filling in for me. She's spent a good amount of time helping out at the other elementary schools, and she'll be visiting a bit before I go on maternity leave to get the lay of the land.

Kids and Social Media---What are our kids up to?

Join us on Tuesday, April 26th from 6:30-7:30 PM to learn about social media sites and apps that our pre-adolescents are using and tips for helping to monitor your child's digital life. The content is geared towards parents of children in 3rd-5th grade, and all are welcome.

Volunteers Needed for Roller-Skating in PE!

In PE, students will be learning to roller-skate from April 25th-May 5th. Our younger students will need support putting on skates and keeping their balance. We need your helping hands! If you have any time you can volunteer between 12:30 and 3:10 Monday-Thursday those two weeks, please email jwarnecke@greenfield.k12.wi.us. Help make this learning experience a success for our students!

K4 Registration!

Do you have a child who will be entering K4? Do you have a neighbor who will? I encourage you to go to central office (located adjacent to the high school) to register ASAP. Early registration helps us to better predict our staffing needs, and increases the likelihood that children will be able to attend their home schools for K4. Here is the link to the enrollment paperwork: http://www.greenfield.k12.wi.us/Portals/Greenfield/District/docs/201602091344.pdf
