PTC fundraiser

  • From the EDGE online program:
    • “We will continue offering our online-only Enhanced Digital Guided Education (EDGE) program. Students who are in EDGE will remain connected to their resident school while receiving online instruction by Salem-Keizer’s EDGE teachers.

      Starting in the fall of 2021, EDGE students can choose between two learning pathways to best meet the needs of individual students and their families. One option is called EDGE Connected, which includes daily, teacher-led instruction. The other option is EDGE Independent, which is student-paced with teacher oversight and offers a more flexible schedule.”

  • The deadline to register for a guaranteed sport in EDGE is Friday, May 14, 2021. Students registered after this date will be enrolled if there is room in the program.
  • If you have questions about the registration process for EDGE, please contact them at

  • We are also encouraging families to please register/re-enroll your student(s) for next year, as soon as possible, as we know there will be an increase of students coming back to in person and we have already begun planning for next year. This will give us an idea on classroom sizes and staff needs. Please click the blue button below to be redirected to our registration page to start that process.
    • If you have any registration questions, please call our office at 503-399-2062, and we will be more than happy to assist. We are scheduling appointments for those who may need help with the online registration process.
