Summer Playground Playdate – August 14 at 11:00am

Come and play at the Eden Lake playground on August 14 at 11:00am. Join old friends from school and meet new ones. This is the first day of Kindercamp, so we will be welcoming incoming kindergarten students and their families.

Yearbooks Arriving Soon!

Exciting news, if you preordered your yearbook you can expect to receive it during the final week of school! Many hours went into creating this incredible memory book. We hope you enjoy the hundreds of photos and special memories that fill every page.

A big THANK YOU goes out to our student yearbook team, Sasha Allen, Ashton Farris, Sarah Heiberg, Kendall Hoag, Sasha Khuhro, Olivia Ladegaard, Lauren Miller, Jillian Muldowney, Avanthikashree Prabaharan, Will Reidy, Nathan Schmidt and Isaiah Walvatne. And thank you to our parent leaders Juliana Allen, Karin Khuhro and Andrea Miller.

If you forgot to order a yearbook and would like to purchase one we have a limited number of soft-cover yearbooks available on a first come, first served basis. Priority will be given to 6th graders, who may purchase them in the office on Tuesday, June 6. Sales of any remaining yearbooks will be open to all students beginning Wednesday, June 7. Please pay $17 per yearbook in cash or make checks out to Eden Lake PTO. Questions? Contact:

Reminder to current 4th, 5th and 6th grade students:

Please be sure you keep your recorder instrument somewhere safe over the summer. Fifth and sixth graders will need their recorders again next year! Parents, it would be great to encourage playing recorder over the summer! Music can be found in their schoology courses. Happy playing, and have a great summer!

Current 6th graders: If you won’t need your recorder anymore for a younger sibling, please think of donating your instrument to Eden Lake. We always have need for recorders students can borrow to use. If you approve donating your 6th graders recorder instrument, please have your child give it to their music teacher. Thank you for helping out others in this way!

Save the Date – Back to School Open House August 30th

The Back to School Open House at Eden Lake will be held on Wednesday, August 30th from 4-6 pm. Come to Eden Lake, meet your teachers, drop off supplies, see old friends and meet new friends.

Shutterfly Purchases

Thinking about ordering vacation scrapbooks, photo prints or other photo gifts? Use our Shutterfly storefront link - - to order them. For every purchase, Shutterfly will donate 13% back to Eden Lake PTO. To date, we have earned $200 for our school.

Please share with Family and Friends. Happy Shopping!

Keep Cutting Box Tops This Summer!

Thank you to our families for collecting Box Tops this year. Because of you Eden Lake received $1370.10 for our school. Remember to keep collecting Box Tops this summer to help support Eden Lake programs next year. Ask family and neighbors to collet them too. A collection sheet will be sent home the first week of school. You can turn in Box Tops at the Open House on August 30th and during the first few weeks of school. The class with the most Box Tops will win a great prize for their classroom. Keep clipping and helping our school.

Lost & Found: Sweaters, jackets, water bottles and more!

We have a lot of items that need to find their owners! If your child is missing something, please remind them to look through the Lost & Found area which is located by the gym and across from the cafeteria. (Even if they do not think they are missing something, it doesn't hurt to check.)

Parents - PLEASE LABEL YOUR CHILD'S BELONGINGS!. All items remaining at the end of the school year are also donated to PROP.

Stay Connected Over the Summer

Like the Eden Lake PTO on Facebook and look for an Eagle Beat Newsletter delivered via Blackboard in mid-August. Have a wonderful summer.
