We are all Edison PTO
As a parent (or grandparent, aunt, uncle, guardian, etc.) of an Edison student, you are automatically a member of the PTO and a valuable part of this organization of people who support our school.
WHY DO I NEED TO GET INVOLVED?
Family involvement at school is very rewarding and important to the success of your child. The PTO needs your voice and commitment in order to provide enriching events and opportunities to our students.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We have a history of sponsoring and assisting with many wonderful events such as Catapult Days, school assemblies and student enrichment experiences, “Chill on the Hill,” the 8th grade end-of-the-year party, teacher appreciation week, and conference meals. We also use money raised from donations and fundraisers to purchase items for the school and support our teachers. The Elkay water-filling stations, café sound system, projection screen for the gym, landscaping, teacher lounge updates, auditorium lighting and sound updates and benches for the courtyard are a few examples.
DOES IT COST TO JOIN?
No, there are no membership fees. However, in order to fund the many events at school, we do accept donations!
(Typically, we also host the Edison Color-A-Thon Fun Run/Walk and catalog sales in late fall. These funds help enrich our students' learning experiences. These two events are not scheduled to take place for the 2020-2021 school year due to COVID-19.)
WHEN DO WE MEET?
Meetings are scheduled for the third Wednesday of each month at 12:00 noon. While they are usually held at the school, this year (2020-2021) they will be held in Zoom meetings until further notice.
Meetings for the 2020-2021 school year are scheduled for the following dates:
