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 many wonderful events such assisting with Catapult Days, sponsoring school assemblies and extra 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! We will also be hosting the Edison Color-A-Thon Fun Run/Walk September 22nd and catalog sales in late fall. These funds will help enrich our student’s learning experiences.
HOW DO I LEARN MORE?
Feel free to contact us at email@example.com. Watch for PTO updates on our website here at edisonsf.org and in the monthly school newsletter, the Edison ECHO.
