Kindness week is coming up February 13th-18th! Let's see how much kindness we can spread this week! Throughout the week, track your acts of kindness in the GooseChase app or using #provokindness2023...
THANK YOU, THANK YOU to our amazing Edgemont families!!!
Our annual FundRun was a huge success!! It was so wonderful to see our students and families come out to show their support for our teachers! The kids ran their little hearts out, and thanks to your incredible support, we have nearly reached our goal of $20,000!! Thank you so much for your generous donations!! 100% of this money will go directly to our children’s classrooms and will allow teachers to purchase much needed supplies and will provide for enriching experiences that our children would have otherwise gone without. Thank you for making all of this possible! What an awesome community we have here at Edgemont!!
If you haven’t had a chance to donate, and would like to, it’s not too late! Donate via Venmo @edgemontpta or send cash or a check to the office.
Thank you also for your support of our Bike to School Week!! A little rain and hail couldn’t keep our students from biking/scootering/walking to school! It was a fun week to learn about developing healthy exercise habits and staying safe on the roads. The super fun and educational Bike Rodeo was AWESOME! Let’s keep it up! Keep moving and wearing those helmets! Thanks to all who worked so hard to make it such a success!!
Thanks as well for clipping and scanning your receipts for BOX TOPS! Our Family vs Family competition brought in $245 ($69 from online submissions)! This is an easy way to bring money to our school! Congratulations to the Knell Family who won the competition, collecting 199 Box Tops! Thanks to a generous donation from AMC, they are heading to the movies!! Keep up the clipping! Download the Box Tops app and scan your receipts, it’s easy! Contact Emily Perl with questions firstname.lastname@example.org or 801.822.4278.
Amazon Smile is another easy way to support Edgemont as you shop online! Go to smile.amazon.com and select PTA Utah Congress Edgemont Elementary PTA as your charity. It will say our location is SLC, that is ok. This is the link to our school! Use this exact name! There is another Edgemont in Sandy, we want our funds to go to our school, not theirs! 🙂

Battle of the Books for 3rd and 4th grades is starting this month! Our new librarian, Mrs. Krazeck, will be putting students into book groups in the next week or two, so students who are interested are welcome to sign up now! Watch our social media posts for a book list!
Provo Reads is a Provo School District initiative in association with Provo City PTA to promote literacy. This years theme is: “Reading Opens Windows to the World.” Each month a new literature theme will be introduced by Mrs. Krazeck. She will share books in that genre and will encourage children to read them. If they read a book in that particular genre, they will be entered into a drawing and will have a chance to earn a free book. October’s theme is: “Reading Opens Windows to Exploration” and will focus on solar system travel/exploration, future technology, sci-fi and what’s inside ourselves, and friendships.
