Room Full Of Heart Service Project
This year Edgeworth Elementary will provide an opportunity for all families to be involved in "Room Full of Heart!" This service project brings our community together by offering families a chance to give or receive holiday donations. Families in need can sign up to receive gifts for children, food, or whatever they need to make their season bright! Families who are able to donate can buy specific gifts or make cash or gift card donations. Our schools serve a diverse community with a wide variety of needs. This will bring us all together like the extended family we are. Please read and return this form and let us know if you are interested in joining us in this endeavor (either by giving OR receiving). If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dana Simile at email@example.com.

Edgeworth's 5th Grade Band, Orchestra & Chorus Winter Concert takes place on December 15th at 7:00 PM in the Edgeworth gymnasium. All are invited to attend.
Veterans Day Donation
Edgeworth Elementary is proud to announce that we have made a $550.00 donation to the Veteran's Administration Hospital of Pittsburgh. The money will be used to purchase needed items for Heroes Hall, a place for patients to relax while receiving treatment or waiting for appointments at the hospital. Dr. Chris Brackney, US Air Force Veteran and Edgeworth parent, was on hand to accept the donation on behalf of the VA. Students earn the dollars that are donated by asking to do a special chore at home. These funds will go a long way towards making a difference in the lives of some of our community's veterans in need.
