We're delighted to be able to share our good news. Two EES students' posters were selected as winners for the Safe Routes to School Poster competition. Genni Bogdanowicz won first place and will receive a new helmet, bike light and best of all a new bicycle! But that's not all. We're hoping that everyone will join us in voting for Genni's poster for the national competition. If she wins, she and her family will get a trip to Washington DC for the 2014 Bike Summit AND Edmunds Elementary will win a bike rack Hub which will give us a way to track our progress in increasing the numbers of students walking and riding to schools and to allow parents to know when their children have safely arrived at school. Very cool tool!
So, vote for Genni's poster! https://www.facebook.com/SarisCycleRacks

While the judges try not to pick student from the same school, they couldn't resist Chloe Evan's poster. She won second place in the competition. She will be receiving a new helmet and bike light!

On Friday December 7, 2012 Edmunds Elementary School joined in a community initiative called Reading to End Racism supporting the District-wide goal of promoting and valuing diversity in the Burlington Public Schools. The project creates an opportunity for all students to listen to new literature, hear personal stories and join age-appropriate discussions to explore and explain racism. All classes at Edmunds Elementary participated in this one-day presentation, with book readings, personal stories and discussions on ways students can help end racism.
