PTA Membership Drive Began 9/7/19

On Friday we sent home our membership forms and envelopes to each student.  Please help keep our school programs going by joining the Edison PTA, Our goal for membership this school year is 100 percent. That means one membership for each student in our school! We are off to a great start this year. When we make it to 100 percent, Mrs Okazaki said that she will kiss a snake in front of the entire school! Of course we have the classroom prizes, any class that gets to 100 percent membership, will get an ice cream party and the top TK-2 class and the top 3-5 classes get pizza parties! We appreciate your support.

Emergency Kits were due 9/13

Each student must have an individual emergency kit. It was due Sept 13th. This kit must be labeled with your child’s name and put in a large ziplock bag or zippered package. The 5th grade committee is selling Emergency kits as a fundraiser. If you bought a kit, it was delivered to your child’s class. All emergency kits will be returned at the end of the year.

Fifth Grade Student Council

Students running for student council will begin their campaign week this week, with speech and voting on Friday. Please turn in your speech, poster and stickers for review no later than Tuesday. Parents of candidates may attend the campaign speech on Friday at 1:20 in the cafeteria. Remember, all parents on campus must show their driver’s license when they check in.

Reflections Contest

Reflections is a creative arts recognition program sponsored by the PTA on the local, state, and national levels, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.

  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the fun and joy of making art
  • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art.

The PTA Reflections Art Program starts this week. If your student is interested in entering, pick up a double sided entry form in the front office or download it from the website here and return it with the completed project by October 18th.
