Our Fall Fundraiser continues through the month of November! We are selling coffee, tea, chocolate, and mugs- all to raise money for literacy programs at Edison. It's delicious, fun and for a good cause. We know we do a lot of fundraisers at Edison and we appreciate your involvement in whatever way works for your family. Maybe you love the jogathon, or box tops, or maybe selling tea is your cup of tea! Whatever you do, whenever you do it, thank you for supporting the Edison learning community! Some important reminders about the fundraiser:
• Cash and checks are due at the time of order
• Don’t let children go door to door without an adult
• Order forms are due the week of Nov. 30 and products will be sent home around December 15
• Money raised supports literacy programs at Edison
• The fundraiser also supports Eugene businesses- it’s local and delicious!

Fill up for Edison!
Don't forget to make one of the two local BioSequential gas stations your regular location to fill up your car AND mention Edison Elementary. They donate money for every food, coffee or gas purchase. And yes, they have regular gas as well as biodiesel and they have some delicious Sweet Life and Euphoria creations inside too!
A GIANT thank you to all of our Edison Elementary parent and community volunteers (You know who you are and there are too too many to name). The time that you give is amazing and priceless. From parents helping in the classrooms, making copies, stuffing folders, leading reading or math groups, managing the library, planning & pitching in for festivities, and chaperoning fieldtrips, to the teams of people who come together to make school-wide events and fundraisers possible and successful . . . the countless hours are noticed and appreciated. It literally could not be done without you. The Edison family is humbled and indebted to each one of you! Thank you.
Any questions, please contact Katie Westerman at email@example.com. Let’s get reading, Edison!
