Edgemont's Got Talent
Sara Stratford

There’s no doubt that Edgemont is a place filled with talented kids, and while everyone is staying home, two Edgemont brothers thought maybe all those talents could be put to good use! Edgemont’s Got Talent, the idea of ninth grader Ben Kirsch and his sixth grade brother Alex Kirsch, is a virtual talent show open to all Edgemont children between the ages of 5-18 and their families. The talent show aims to raise funds for Feeding Westchester.  Videos featuring any talent at all - including musical performances, cooking, sports tricks, pets in action, and even TikToks - are encouraged! A $5 donation made directly to Feeding Westchester is suggested for each video submission or talent show viewing, as Feeding Westchester continues its mission to keep our county’s neediest people safe during this pandemic.

Budget Vote Information

The Board Of Education is submitting to the voters a $63,677,081 budget for the 2020-2021 school year.  The anticipated tax-rate increase is 2.99% with a projected budget-to-budget increase of 3.75%.  The proposed budget was first developed, and then revised due to pandemic-related State aid cuts and out of concern for the current financial stress for all taxpayers. Based on how the State's tax cap is calculated, this budget is now $546,000 below the 2% cap.

MAKING ART: TOGETHER WHILE APART
Edgemont Tech Dept.

“Making Art: Together While Apart” is a gallery devoted to the artwork created by EHS students, grades 7-12, during distance learning. Art has always been a place for self expression, contemplation, and communication. Hopefully during this time, students can create and admire the work of their peers… and as a community, we can come together to enjoy the creativity of our kids!
