This page was created for parents and teachers of EDMES as another outlet to receive and exchange information regarding school information and happenings!
EDMES PTA will post information about PTA events on this page. Please do not post comments about specific people (children or adults) on our page. The privacy of EDMES children and their families are important to us.
Some people think that today's forecast will be a bit cool. Running Club at EDMES thinks its a perfect day to begin there training for the race on October 25.
Reminder: Picture Day tomorrow.
A different perspective about fundraising. When you purchase items from the vendor it is a split of 50% profit for the vendor and 50% for the PTA. Instead, you can make a donation to the PTA marked in lieu of fundraiser. Then 100% of the profit goes toward the PTA. However your family chooses to handle the fundraiser, the PTA appreciates your support.
Golf Tournament tomorrow! Check in begins at 7am. Forecast calls for a gorgeous Saturday.
WHOA! What a week! All this week, visit Orange Leaf and mention EDMES and we get 10%. TOMORROW, first school store (all items are still under a buck). WEDNESDAY, Open House 6:15-7 K-2, 7:15-8 3-5. SATURDAY Golf Tournament to benefit technology. I see a nap in order on Sunday :)
First PTA meeting of the school year is tomorrow (9/2) at 6:30 in the library. Hope to see you there!

The 2014-2015 school year is off and running and so is your local PTA. We have many events and ideas that are happening this fall. We could use your input and support. Please join us Tuesday September 2nd at 6:30 in the library. Happy weekend!
THIS JUST IN....There will be raffle items featured in the gym tomorrow as well as snacks! We will be raffling off gift certificates to Culinary Playground, You're an Artist, Billy's Frozen Yogurt, Water's Edge and Admission to EDMES Movie Night. Also, hand made fleece blankets for the kids. Tickets are $1 each or $5 for 6 tickets. The proceeds from these raffles go directly toward technology for EDMES. Please stop by the gym tomorrow and enter to win.
Tomorrow August 27 from 9am to 10:30 am families have an opportunity to come in and see you child's new classroom. But it is also an opportunity to stop in the gym and learn about the PTA and all of the wonderful events we have planned. PLUS we are serving snacks and cold drinks. Sounds like a great way to kick off the school year to me!
Good Rainy Morning :)! We could still use a couple of volunteers to stuff the red folders with the beginning of the year packets. Starting Sunday the weather is supposed to be beautiful. So let's get this job done today so we can all enjoy our last week of summer before school. The job is in the teacher's room at EDMES, anytime between 9 and 3. Just post here when you can help so I can let the office know. Thank you!
Meh! The sky is gray and the air is cool. Need something to do today, tomorrow or Monday? The PTA could use some help stuffing the red folders full of all of the VERY important papers that come home at the beginning of each school year. We are setting up one to two hour shifts in the teacher's room at EDMES. I just need to let the office know who will be coming in and when so please comment here when you plan to help. The office hours are 8 am to 3pm today, tomorrow, and Monday. We will have a movie going if you need to bring along the kids. Thank you for any time you can give to get this job done :)
SATURDAY Forecast Sunny 80 degrees Beautiful day to come lend a hand with the clean up efforts. If everyone who sees this volunteers for one hour, it would have a huge impact for our mission. What do you say?
Hoping that everyone has a safe and wonderful summer vacation! We hope to see you at the EDMES Summer Camp 8/11 - 8/14!
Reminder:Tomorrow will be the first make up day for Lego Club.
School store Tuesday 3/10. Budget vote Tuesday 3/10 Reflections exhibit at Hood 6-8 Wednesday 3/11. Did you know, it may reach 50 degrees Wednesday. WOOHOO! Super hero movie night Friday 3/13 Have you bought your Monarchs tickets yet? Sounds like a good week to me :)
There are just a couple of spots left in our winter introductory karate fundraiser. Professional Martial Arts (PMA) Academy, located on Main Street, offers EDMES students a special rate of 6 weeks for $69. The classes run from 3/9-4/18.

Update for the Kasprzaks: If anyone would like to donate and are unable to get to EDMES today or Thursday please contact Mrs. Cremone at email@example.com and she will pick up your donations. Also, some families would like to make monetary donations. In lieu of a go fund or a similar website, the school is accepting checks made out to the EDMES Sunshine fund. Using this account allows the family to receive 100 % of the donation. THANK YOU!
Lego Club Update: Make up days scheduled for March 18, 25, and 30th. A notice with more details will be coming home shortly.
Ski Club Reminder: Mr. Chouinard will tweet when they have left McIntyre tonight. Not a twitter follower, no problem. The tweets appear in real time on the ED website.
Way to Go Judy Follo! Last night, Judy was recognized as EDMES Volunteer of the Year. She has led numerous initiatives to bring this organization to its current status. We are so lucky to have her as a part of the EDMES community.
FYI Due to the delay, School Store is going to be open on Thursday this week.
For all the families who have already signed up for tomorrow's event For the Love of Snow please bring your own sleds and adult snowshoes. We have the EDMES snowshoes for the kids. See you tomorrow!
Sweet heart Dance begins at 6pm tomorrow. If you are planning on donating store bought or home made goodies please have them at school by 3pm.
Attention Ski Club parents Starting today there will be a tweet when the bus has left the ski area and is headed back to school. If you do not follow ED on twitter you can still view this tweet on the EDMES website.
If there is school tomorrow, the PTA will be holding its monthly meeting at 6:30 in EDMES library. On the agenda: For the Love of Snow, Sweetheart Dance, Winter Karate Fundraiser, and Monarchs night. Childcare is available so won't you please join us?
After all of the meetings, hearings and facebook discussions that have occurred over this year's budget, tomorrow's deliberative session will determine what will appear on our ballot in March. If you are on the fence about attending, previous years have been decided by just a handful of votes. Your presence really does make a difference. West Running Brook 10 am.
Just a reminder that the PTA is looking for gift basket donations (specified by grade level) to be raffled off at our upcoming Sweet heart dance (2/6/15). Plus, we are surveying interest in a new outdoor event For the Love of Snow (2/7/15). Please send in donations and/or your RSVP form by FRIDAY. Thank you!
Derry School Bord will hold a public budget hearing, tomorrow night at 6:30 pm at West Running Brook Middles School. Hope to see you there!
School Store tomorrow!
A FREE showing of Wizard of Oz on Friday (7pm on the hill)and Derryfest Saturday(10-5pm Mac Gregor park). What a fun weekend!
Today your child(ren) will bring home the catalogs to support our Fall fundraiser. It is through your generosity that we are able to provide lost cost or free activities for your family to enjoy. Plus, "puppy coupon turn in" will make much more sense after today.
Tomorrow evening is Open House at East Derry. Besides being a chance to hear a presentation by your child's teacher, the PTA will have a table accepting membership forms and school spirit orders. Both of these forms are available on our website edmespta.org under the Forms tab. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
School store is open tomorrow during all lunches. Kids can bring their money and buy fancy school supply items and other small trinkets. All items are priced one dollar or less,
There are always small things like mums that would enrich our school. I am currently working on a on going wish list for the school. Once I have it looking perfect I will upload it to here and our PTA website. But if you are looking for something to help our school right now we could use bags of leftover sand and/or bark mulch to optimally cover areas on the playground
Save the Date: Our first meeting of the 2015-2016 school year will be held this Wednesday September 2nd at 6:30 pm in the EDMES library. There is daycare available if you need it. This is an interactive dialogue where we hash out ideas and schedules for all the fun events we have planned for the school year. If you are on the fence about getting involved this is a great way to meet our members and hear about what the PTA does for EDMES. (BTW It is a lot :))
On Wednesday August 25th, not only do you have a chance to meet your child's new teachers, but you have a chance to join our wonderful PTA. Plus, there will be awesome raffle items so please be sure to stop in and say hello :)
Thank you to everyone who joined us Friday at Overlook for our annual golf tournament. Whether you played or volunteered your support of the EDMES PTA is greatly appreciated.
Tickets for this weekend's Spring Festival went on sale today during lunch. They will continue to be sold tomorrow and Friday. The cost is $5 for ten tickets.
