A Warm Welcome to 2009 Edison Families!
The new year is off and running in historic fashion. There is a sense of hope that didn’t exist a few short weeks ago. Yet even as things appear to be looking up, it bears reminding there is much work to be done to ensure our children have shining and prosperous futures. Edison PTA is committed to doing what it can to give our school community bright opportunities. While Edison’s incredible teaching, resource, support and administrative staff have the education of our youngsters well handled, here’s what your PTA has on the horizon.
In February, Edison will honor outstanding volunteers and all Reflections participants at its annual Honorary Service Awards & Reflections Dinner. In March, we will sponsor our annual Talent Show which will be held at the James Armstrong Theatre, our 3rd Annual Pancake Breakfast (and Beautification Day) and host our annual Family Library Night and Ice Cream Social. In April, we celebrate Earth Day and take time to thank our school’s office staff and health assistant. In May, we honor teachers and our community’s law enforcement. We’ll also have our 3rd (almost annual) Spring Carnival and Adventures in Art Show. And there’s even more to keep an eye out for…Jump Rope for Heart, Science Fair, assemblies, the Bike Rodeo, Jog-a-Thon, Read Across America, and the Book Fair.
It’s been said it takes a village to raise a child and some of these events need “villagers” to help make them a success. Villagers who volunteer at these events and villagers to attend. We hope you’ll be part of Edison’s village and come out to our school’s many upcoming family events. And if you’d like to help out, contact Jill Nowak (firstname.lastname@example.org) and just let her know what you are interested in.
There has been some communication from our state PTA that is very important to share with parents at Edison. Please see the Legislative Alert below...
