On behalf of the PTO, I want to welcome you back to school. For those of you that are new to Edison, welcome to our school! We are excited about the 2015-2016 school year and hope you and your family have a great year.
As a parent (or grandparent, aunt, uncle, guardian, etc) of an Edison student, you are automatically 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, “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 Memorial garden, 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 1st Ever Edison Color Run in October and catalog sales in late fall. These funds will help enrich our student’s learning experiences.
When are the meetings?
We have meetings on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at noon with our first meeting held September 16th at 12:00 noon in the conference room in the school office. Your attendance is vital to ensure the PTO is meeting the needs of families and teachers of Edison Middle School.
How do I learn more?
Please stop by our table at Catapult Day/CATS Rally on Thursday, September 3rd or feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit our website at https://edisonsf.org. This is a new website and is a work in progress so please be patient.
Again, welcome to school and I am looking forward to a great year.
After many months of discussions at PTA meetings this past school year regarding the direction of the Edison PTA, a decision was made by those in attendance to take a new direction and no longer actively participate in a PTA.
