Marlene R. Gamba, Principal

Dear Edgewood families,

Edgewood got a complete facelift this summer. Our entire heating/air-conditioning system was replaced. This will ensure better air quality throughout the building. Funds for this were through the Efficient Building Fund.

Please follow Edgewood on Twitter. I am asking staff, family to join at Marlene Gamba@gamba_mgamba. Currently we have 64 followers. If we reach over 100, I will provide the students with a DJ party during school time, so follow Edgewood on Twitter!

We had a good turnout at our first PTO meeting. PTO co-chairpersons are Laura Kline and Adrienne D’Arconte. Jon Weining chairs cultural arts and Mandy Faust chairs fundraising. We will be looking for volunteers for our Fall Harvest Festival on Thursday, November 10th.

Our school-wide focus this year continues to be in the area of writing with a concentration on students responding to a prompt based on their reading assignments. We, especially, want students to become critical readers. Students are being introduced to Eureka, a new math program. Parents have requested more information and we plan to provide our parents with a workshop in the near future.

Please join us this Saturday, October 15th at 10:00 for schoolyard cleanup. This is organized by our PTO.
