Edgemont PTA News
Edgemont has so many wonderful, talented and hard-working teachers and we have loved celebrating them during Teacher Appreciation week. Thanks to all the many parents who used their creativity and time to decorate the teacher’s doors in preparation for this fun week. You don’t have to travel far to see our very own Hollywood, whoops I mean Edgemont Walk of Fame. Stop in to see the teacher’s names on their very own five pointed star in the entrance of the school. We have quite the week planned for our teachers thanks to our great committee of Lana Bailey, Paka Martial and Mary Ann Bryson and to all who are bringing food items for lunch, breakfast and snacks! Thank you teachers and thanks parents for helping us show our appreciation and support!
We had close to one hundred parents submit Golden Apple submissions and were so thrilled to read all of the great comments of praise to the many amazing teachers at Edgemont. The winner for this year’s Golden Apple Teacher is Mme. Lehman who is a phenomenal and committed teacher at our school. Thank you Mme. Lehman for all of your efforts to help your students really succeed!
The Read a Thon is off to a great start. As a school, we totaled reading over 60,000 minutes the first week! We have lots of school-wide prizes coming up including a lunch-time dance party at 120,000 minutes read and a Classic Skate Night party when we hit 150,000 minutes. Mark your calendars for March 31st from 5:30-8:30 to bring your family for a free entrance to skate or scooter at Classic Skating! This year we will also be doing a contest for the class (an upper grade and lower grade winner) with the most minutes to win a $75 gift card for new books for the classroom! Keep up the good reading and remember to bring your bookmarks on Fridays for individual prizes. A special thanks to the organizers of this month long event, Ann McVey and Cherin Chambers!
We are excited to share that we will be having a special evening for parents to come and see the many great things happening here at Edgemont. Mark your calendars for April 17th 5:30-7pm for our first ever “Edgemont Showcase”. The hallways will be turned into an art gallery to stroll and enjoy your child’s very own artwork from throughout the year. Come hear opera as well as French performances by our students. Bring your family for special STEAM hands on activities. Come for a fun evening to see your child’s efforts this year as well as how our school excels both at STEAM and French!
Come to the Easter Basket Auction to support Provo School District and the After-School Programs and to bid on some great items! The annual auction will be held Thursday, April 2nd at 6pm at Riverside Country Club (2701 N. University Ave, Provo). All are welcome!
We had a great turnout at Parents n Pastries with lots of great costumes for Dr. Seuss Day. Thanks to Allison Fowles for planning these two events throughout the year and for all the parents who volunteered reading in the classroom for Dr. Seuss Day.
