Happy November from the PTO! We are so grateful for all the support we received from Edison families over the last month. There’s such a long list of “thank you’s” that this month’s newsletter feels a little bit like an acceptance speech at an awards ceremony!
A big THANK YOU to everyone who donated food items or money for the staff meals during conferences. We were able to provide a variety of soups, breads, and treats for the first night. And the second night, we were able to cater a meal from Honeybaked Ham.
We would also like to thank everyone who volunteered and shopped at the Scholastic book fair. We raised just over $1000 in scholastic dollars which will allow us to purchase books for the Edison library and classrooms. Extra special thanks to Samantha Wescott and Chanda Fawcett for organizing the bookfair.
Edison spirit wear makes a great holiday gift! We are working on another online spirit wear store - we are trying a new company! The online store will be available soon to purchase Edison Spirit Wear for Fall/Winter & Basketball season. Watch for an email in the next couple weeks.
We do have quite a bit of spirit wear in inventory. We currently have t-shirts (maroon, gray and tie dyed), hooded sweatshirts (gray and maroon), stocking hats (maroon & gray stripe) If you would like to purchase any in stock Spirit Wear or have questions, email EdisonMS.SpiritWear@gmail.com or text Angela at 605-376-8859.
Another giant ‘thank you’ to all our Color Run participants and volunteers. The event was a blast, and we raised just over $6000 for Edison! If you have any photos or videos from the Color Run that you'd like to share for the yearbook, you can email them to the PTO at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, we want to thank everyone who supported the catalog sales fundraiser. We know it's a lot to have two fundraisers back to back, so we appreciate those of you who took the time to participate. If you have orders and have not returned your order forms, please turn them in to the office ASAP. Online orders will still be accepted for this shipment until November 10th. Any orders that were shipped to the school will arrive and need to be picked up on December 14th. More details will be sent out in early December. Also, you can continue to place orders to earn money for our school for the next six months. The items have to be shipped to your home. So, if you love the cookies, pizza, popcorn, etc - you can order more any time!
We hope you can join us for our next PTO meeting on Wednesday, November 17th at noon via zoom. Look for an email with the zoom link, or you can find it on our website www.edisonsf.org.
As you do your online holiday shopping, don't forget about AmazonSmile! Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your purchase to the charitable organization of your choice. Just start your shopping at Amazon Smile and choose Edison Middle School of Sioux Falls.
