Pop Tabs

When collecting pop tabs, please put them in the gray waste basket in the lobby. 

The Shriner group collects the tabs, redeems them for the aluminum, and uses the money to support the Shriners' Hospitals. The Shriners operate a 22-hospital system providing totally free medical care to any child under the age of 18 with burn injuries, spinal cord injuries, or orthopedic problems.  

Annual Student Hunger Drive

posted Oct 22, 2015, 2:24 PM by Jill Brunkan   [ updated Nov 12, 2015, 1:35 PM ]

Congratulations Ed White on exceeding our goal of 500 canned goods for the Student Hunger Drive!  We beat it by over 1900 and brought in a total of 2400 food products!  Way to care for others and be generous!  Also, there was a tie for the first place classes – Mrs. Swoboda and Mr. Thiessens classes both brought in 180 cans!  

The prize for beating the school goal was to PIE OUR PRINCIPALS IN THE FACES!  On Thursday morning, the K-3 students watched Mr. Kline get "pied" and the 4-6 students watched Mrs. Brustkern get "pied"!  It was a blast to watch! 

Thank you Mr. Kline and Mrs. Brustkern for being such good sports and supporting a great cause!

Thank you to all of the families who brought in food! Ed White is a very caring and generous community.

Great job!
