Would you like to see the pictured barn upcycled into a kid-focused, free community library and installed at a kid-friendly height under the current kiosk in front of the school? Thanks to the creativity and generosity of some wonderful South University neighbors, this could be a reality -- with our help!
Edison community, bring your pennies and spare change to school and help us fill up the barn! The barn (and an attendant) will be at drop off and pick up this Wednesday and Thursday (1/20 and 1/21) to collect coins. We are hoping to raise $100 to help cover some miscellaneous building supplies and to register the new little library with Little Free Library. This penny drive is a great opportunity to get the students excited about the library and feeling like they had a hand in making it happen. (Fun fact: remind your kids that the pennies of school children funded the Statue of Liberty pedestal!) Questions? Contact email@example.com.
Show your school spirit and bring in classroom basket items for the Spring Fling Art Walk! Items can be dropped off with your classroom teacher, while cash contributions are being collected in the office. Due date for all items is Friday, January 29th.

University Park has not been rennovated in over 60 years. It used to be a thriving, inviting park with a working wading pool and activity areas of interest. Now it underutilized and desperately in need of upgrades. The City of Eugene Department of Parks and Recreation is on the cusp of creating the plans and budgets for the next 10 years. University Park will NOT be a part of that plan unless they hear from residents that the park is important to us. To that end, the South University Neighborhood Association invites your participation in a short survey about how, or if, you use the park and what you would like to see in a new and improved University Park. Please follow this link and share it with friends and neighbors: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2SPQH85 Without extensive community input NOW, we will not have a University Park that we can be proud of in the future!
