OCTOBER 17 - 21, 2022


Edison Climate Week is an opportunity for Edison otters and their families to think and act green. It is not a fundraiser. There are lots of ways for students and their families to participate: 



👻🎃🧟‍♀️ Fri, Oct 14 | 3-6 PM | Halloween Costume exchange 

Kick off Climate Week with a costume exchange on the grass after school on Friday. Students are encouraged to borrow or make costumes this year for a Green Halloween. The Green Halloween fairy will be giving out Ottercards for reused and homemade costumes!


🍃🌳🌎 Thurs, Oct. 20 | Green Spirit Day 

Every Otter wears GREEN to school to show their climate spirit!


📚 In our Classrooms 

Edison Teachers K-5 + Music and PE leads will be incorporating climate-themed lessons, games and practices. K and 1st grade classes will get special lessons on sorting waste.


🍕 Bring your Zero Waste Lunch or Be a Superstar Sorter 

Go Green parents will be coming by at lunch with hand stamps to “check in” on how we’re doing towards meeting our Zero Waste lunchtime goals. 


👟 Fall Sneaker Drive  

This year we are once again teaming up with ALL TYPES OF USED/WORN SHOES can be donated. Bins available at Edison, and a few homes, all week.


♻️ Recycling/Reuse Collection 

We’ll be collecting the following items on the blacktop before school, and at a few homes.


- Broken crayons for the Crayon Initiative

- Squeeze pouch lids (round only) for class projects

- Berry baskets, paper and plastic bags, egg cartons, rubber bands for Farm2Market

- Plastic bags/wrapping for NexTrex recycling challenge
