Connecting Families and School Through Communication!

Hello Edgewood Families!


In this Update I would like to start by sharing news about a unique opportunity for some of our Edgewood Eagles, while showing their support for the Chicago Blackhawks...

Last week, I had been in contact with a producer/writer with Comcast Sportsnet. In his initial e-mail to me he explained that Comcast Sportsnet would like to kick off the Blackhawk's season with a kids "interview" commercial featuring Edgewood students. The interviewers would be Pat Boyle and Luke Stuckmeyer, who are CSN Chicago Blackhawk's reporters. During the interview video shoot the kids will be asked questions about what they know about the Blackhawks, and within the questioning their enthusiasm and answers will be a part of a tagline that helps to "kick off" the upcoming Blackhawks season.

This week, I received confirmation that the video shoot will occur at Edgewood School on Friday, Oct. 2nd, at 3:45 P.M.

If you think that your child(ren) might be interested and comfortable in being a part of this commercial video shoot, the requirements include two signed waivers, for CSN and NBC, and that a parent or guardian must be present at Edgewood during the video shoot timeframe.

Please e-mail me directly to communicate that your family would like to move forward with the requirements, and I will send you the waivers directly. The waiver forms need to be signed and returned to my office no later than next Wednesday, Sept. 30th. Once I have 20 sets of completed forms, I will notify all families that we have reached the Comcast Sportsnet goal of interviewing this number of our students.

Thanks so much for your help in facilitating this unique experience for our students and our school, and Go Hawks! :)
