Edgeworth Elementary School
Picture Day - September 17
Individual student pictures will be taken on Wednesday, Sept. 17. All students will have their picture taken for school records, but parents are under no obligation to purchase a picture package. Students should bring their order form and payment envelope back to school on Picture Day.
Volunteer for a PTA Event
Please consider volunteering for one or more of our events. A booklet outlining PTA sponsored events was sent home to every family at the beginning of the school year. PTA events can also be found on the Edgeworth school page. Please feel free to contact this year’s president, Bridgett Bates, with any questions at email@example.com. Please get involved and help make a difference!
KidStuff Coupon Books
Coming soon to a backpack near you is your preview copy of the current KidStuff Coupon Book. It is being sent home with your child (one per family) to allow you an opportunity to leaf through the volume and verify that it contains many valuable coupons for clothing, shoes, toys, sporting goods, activities, food, etc. that you will find useful. Most of the coupons are valid for at least one year, and by using just a few of the coupons, the purchaser will easily realize the $25 cost of the book. Each family that sells or purchases five of these KidStuff Coupon Books earns a FREE book! (Note that this effort is NOT “door-to-door sales by children”). The Edgeworth PTA earns a 50 percent profit on every book that is sold, and these profits go directly to Edgeworth’s teachers for use as they see fit! The coupon book is also available in 22 different editions, for numerous geographic regions including 12 states. For more details on how to purchase these books -- great for hostess gifts, coach gifts, holiday needs, etc. --- please see the materials that accompany the preview copy sent home with your child, and refer to the KidStuff attachment in this Thursday Reminders Packet. If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Patterson, preferably by email, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone, 412-977-0750.
Box Tops Drive: September 29 - October 24
Getting back to school also means it’s time for the Fall Box Top Drive. The fall drive begins Monday, Sept. 29. Please start collecting your Box Tops today if you haven’t already to send in during our drive ending Oct. 24. The class with the most clipped Box Tops will win a party of its choice. For each Box Top clipped, our school earns $0.10. Last school year, Edgeworth school received over $2,000 from Box Tops to help fund school activities. That’s a lot of box tops! Please start collecting now to help meet or beat last year’s earnings. Please go to www.boxtops4education.com to find participating products. In addition to your clippings, register your Giant Eagle Card for additional earnings towards Box Tops for our school at www.boxtops.gianteagle.com. Thank you in advance for your support. If you have any questions about this program, please feel free to contact our Box Top Coordinator, Monica Savage, at email@example.com.
Giant Eagle Apples for Students Program begins Oct. 1
Every year Giant Eagle donates educational supplies to our school through the Apple for Students program. The amount donated is based on the points that are earned every time a registered participant uses his/her Giant Eagle Advantage Card. Last year Edgeworth received sports, computer and playground equipment for the students of every grade. The school budget is very tight and our teachers and students benefit greatly from this, and we thank all of the 437 families currently participating. It costs nothing and takes a few minutes to register your card so that you can participate in the program. If you registered your card in the past, then you need do nothing; if you are new to the program, please see use one of these two ways to register:
The program runs from Oct. 1 through March 31. Please register your card and start earning points for our school.
