Turn in those Jogathon Envelopes!

Please be sure to return your white jogathon envelope by THURSDAY June 9th - this week! On that day, we will announce who wins the GOLDEN SHOE AWARD, which is the class with the most envelopes returned, whether or not they contain any pledges. So help your class try to win the Golden Shoe and return your white envelopes by Thursday!

FUNDRAISING


Remember to Collect and Turn in your Edison Jogathon Pledges!

bibfinal2016We are in the home stretch on our fundraising goals this year! Please continue collecting Jogathon pledges - they can be turned in through and even after the last day of school to the Edison office. As a reminder, 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. The big thermometer is up in the front hall to help us track our progress! Watch it grow as pledges get turned in this week! We are making a big sprint to the finish - every nickel counts - we can do it, Edison! Thank you!!!


VOLUNTEER NEEDS


Calling All 4th Grade Families!!

5thGradeCelebrationsThe 5th grade parents need your help!!  The idea is that 4th grade parents have the opportunity to see what the celebration entails while they help set up and serve refreshments. This will give the 5th grade parents the opportunity to enjoy the celebration with their 5th graders. Let's start a new tradition at Edison! If you are available to help please contact Wendrika at: wendrika77@gmail.com.Thank you for paying it forward!
