A is for AmazonSmile
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. Start from this link--smile.amazon.com/ch/47-4436027--and you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to Edison Middle School PTO.
How do I select a charitable organization to support when shopping on AmazonSmile?
On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. We will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation. Please choose Edison Middle School Parent Teacher Organization. (An even easier way: start here.)
How do I shop at AmazonSmile?
To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile.
Which products on AmazonSmile are eligible for charitable donations?
Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.
Can I use my existing Amazon.com account on AmazonSmile?
Yes, you use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.
B is for Box Tops
One way Edison can earn extra money is by saving Box Tops! The money earned from saving Box Tops has purchased many things at Edison over the years such as library books, new rugs, picnic tables in the courtyard and, most recently, the mural in the gym, among other things! We will have a competition between PRO times to see which PRO can collect the MOST Box Tops between now and March 1. We will do a collection in December and then again towards the end of February.
Don’t throw away your Box Tops! (See sample above. Please be observant of expiration dates and throw away expired Box Tops.)
Tear off Box Tops from eligible products and send them to school with your student. (It’s best to send them in an envelope or baggie with your child’s PRO teacher’s name on it.)
Each Box Top is worth 10¢ for Edison. This adds up quickly!
A complete list of eligible products is found on the site below.

C is for Color-a-Thon
Color-A-Thon is a memory-maker for family and friends that builds community through colorful camaraderie. The PTO uses money raised from donations and fundraisers to purchase items for the school and support our teachers. The Elkay Water Bottle Filling Stations, the Memorial Garden, auditorium lighting and sound updates, gymnasium projection screen, cafe sound system, and benches for the courtyard are a few examples.
C is also for Chip Shoppe/Cherrydale Farms catalog sales, which take place in late fall.
