PENNY HARVEST FUNDRAISER - FEBRUARY 9-20, 2015
Bring in your spare change during the February fundraising window to raise money for Family Services! One Detention returns with new member Mrs. Goetz and original members Mr. Louk (Earhart), Mr. Rhoda (Miami) and Mrs. Clevenger. This is a competition between Edgelea, Earhart and Miami Schools. The three principals have agreed to sing a song. Here’s the deal—for the school that raises the most money per student, that principal will have to sing the lead vocal!!! That’s right; if Edgelea raises the most money, Mrs. Clevenger will be the lead singer! Don’t you want to see that happen? All three schools will see the performance through a webcast. There will be dancing!
ATTENDANCE/TARDIES TO SCHOOL
A friendly reminder to parents that students are tardy to school after 8:25 a.m. Our doors open at 8:00 a.m. for children to eat breakfast or sit in the designated area for each grade level. As the weather becomes colder, more children will be dropped off at school. Allow more time for this process by leaving your house a few minutes earlier. Thank you for your cooperation.
Kindergarten Round Up Is Coming!
Kindergarten Round Up will be held March 17, 2015. If you have a student that will be age 5 on or before August 1, 2015 you need to register them for the 2015-16 school year. Round Up will be held at Edgelea Elementary School from 4:00—7:00 pm. You will need to bring the necessary documentation with you: proof of residency (e.g. most recent utility bill with name and address), immunization record (required ones can be found at http://www.lsc.k12.in.us/page283.aspx), and an official birth certificate (issued by the health department). Please understand that attending Round Up is not formal registration for the 2015-16 academic year; you must still register your child(ren) during the registration process on July 31 or August 3, 2015.
