PTA Newsletter February 6, 2019 - Garden Work Day THIS Sunday!
Wed, Feb 6 7:36am
Edison Elementary
Dear Edison Families,
It's party time! The auction is our MOST IMPORTANT fundraiser. Without a successful auction, we cannot pay for many of the programs that we at Edison take for granted - like field trips, our garden teacher, our school counselor, classroom supplies, library books, playground equipment, and musical instruments. We also have dozens of exciting programs that we would love to fund, including social-emotional curriculum, an art teacher, more classroom Chromebooks, and more lunch supervisors. But we can't do any of that without your help to make the auction a smashing success. Last year, thanks to contributions from everyone at Edison, we set a fundraising record with our auction. We need EVERYONE'S help to do it again and break that record.
So how do you help? First, buy tickets now! Please don't wait - get your tickets now so we can plan the best party possible. It's going to be a blast. Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!!!
Second, we are looking for sponsors! Sponsors provide a tax deductible monetary donation to our auction, while getting amazing exposure for their business. Perfect for real estate agents, financial planners, contractors, plumbers, architects, dentists, doctors, insurance agents, trusts and estates lawyers, and any local businesses. The best way to find sponsors is to make a personal request - so if you know anyone, make the ask! I am happy to send all the appropriate forms. Alternatively, potential sponsors can go to our website and scroll to the bottom to get more information:
We are so excited about this party! Join us!
