The famous Edison Jogathon is coming up on May 18th. Packets went home last week, so now's the time to start getting those pledges! We have a new online option for collecting pledges - check it out at https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/2016edisonjogathon and send the link out to family and friends. We are making a big sprint to the finish of our fundraising goal this year, and every nickel counts - we can do it, Edison!
The first is a Pizza Party & Fundraiser at Marche Provisions! If we can pre-order our pizzas it will help the kitchen at Provisions plan for our event. This is a great opportunity to have a large gathering. Sunday May 15th is promising to be a lovely day where we can utilize the patios and other other outdoor spaces at the 5th Street Market! Rain or shine there are plenty of seating options so there are no restrictions on the number of people we can bring. We will receive $5 from Provisions for every medium pizza ordered (regardless if it's pre-ordered) and there are a ton of other food options for every dietary restriction.
Follow this link to pre-order: http://provisionsmarkethall.com/event/edison-elementary-school-fundraiser/
Next, mark your calendars for some fro yo at Yogurt Extreme on May 24th! More info soon on that event.

Don't miss your chance to own a copy of Room 10 kindergarten's awesome Robot Alphabet book! The class had so much fun making robot letters and would love for you to share their work with as many fellow young readers as possible. We have had the book printed by an independent book publisher and paperback copies can be ordered for $15. A proof of the book (a few minor adjustments have been made for the final copy) is in the office if you would like to see it before purchasing. Nan will be taking orders and payment. Stop by and take a look--they did an excellent job and are very proud of their work.
