Hungry? TODAY is the Edison Pizza Party & Fundraiser at Marche Provisions!

provisionsYou can pre-order your pizzas to help the kitchen at Provisions plan for our event, but it's not required. This is a great opportunity to have a large gathering. Rain or shine there are plenty of seating options so there are no restrictions on the number of people. Edison 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: 

Next, mark your calendars for some fro yo at Yogurt Extreme on May 24th! More info soon on that event.

Please Plan to Attend!

Calling All 4th Grade Families!!
