We are very thankful for any parents who are able to volunteer at King Edward.  Volunteers for all school activities, including all field trips, must have a new police check submitted for this school year.   If you would like to volunteer at King Edward this school year, please see the following letter about getting a Police Record Check.  Police Record Check Letter – Sept. 2018

Meet the Staff will take place on Wednesday, September 12 from 5:30 to 7:00.  We look forward to seeing families at the school that evening.  For those who attend Meet the Staff, students will have the opportunity to fill out a ballot for free Rangers tickets for themselves and a parent.  We do not yet know the date of the game for the tickets but we will draw student names, announce the names on the announcements the following morning and present those students with certificates to be exchanged for the tickets.

A crosswalk has been painted on Walter St. to identify where students cross between our upper and lower fields.  In addition, a lighted sign identifying the crosswalk will be installed in the near future.
