VOLUNTEER NEEDS


Calling All 4th Grade Families!!

5thGradeCelebrationsThe 5th grade parents need your help!!  The idea is that 4th grade parents have the opportunity to see what the celebration entails while they help set up and serve refreshments. This will give the 5th grade parents the opportunity to enjoy the celebration with their 5th graders. Let's start a new tradition at Edison! If you are available to help please contact Wendrika at: wendrika77@gmail.com.Thank you for paying it forward!

5th Grade Celebration is June 15!

Join us Wednesday, June 15 at 6 p.m. in the Edison gymnasium for the 5th Grade Celebration. Come wish our 5th graders luck in middle school! Fourth grade parents, in particular, are encouraged to attend so they are familiar with the proceedings and better prepared to help host the celebration for their soon-to-be 5th graders.

COMMUNITY EVENTS


Last Opportunity for Community Inputinput

Eugene School District 4J is beginning a strategic visioning and planning process to develop a 3 to 5 year guiding plan. The plan will reflect what our community wants our school system to look like and where the district’s limited resources should be targeted to best support student success. The resulting district vision and plan will be presented to the school board and the public this fall. Input is critical to the success of this planning process, so please plan to attend the last Community Input session to share your thoughts...

June 2 at 7 p.m.: Fourth Public Session (Roosevelt Middle School)
