UPDATE: Shining Bright - Edison Otters Spring Fundraising Drive
Tue, May 25 8:27pm

Dear Otter Families!

 

I am SO incredibly excited to announce that we have reached our goal  for the spring fundraising drive...and then some!!!

 

Thanks to your amazing generosity, we not only hit our $30,000 spring fundraising drive goal, but surpassed it! We raised a grand total of  $33,457!!!! 

 

The best news is that with this money raised, we will have enough funds to support our students, school, teachers, and staff with programs and resources needed for next year. Next year, we are planning to fund increased art instruction teacher training to address reading needs, mental health supports, a revived garden program, a return of field trips (as allowed by district guidelines) and much more....and now, we can do this!!

 

This is my last year as Fundraising Chair on the Edison PTA board and it was with a heavy heart that I wasn't able to finish my fundraising years at Edison with a spring auction (which is truly my most favorite event). The pandemic changed many things for all of us. But what it didn't change is how Edison Otters come together and for each other as a community. I am once again, blown away and humbled by your generosity. 

 

I wanted to extend my deepest gratitude to all those who made the Shining Bright fundraising drive happen - Anne Warren, Cameron Holland, Monica Ware, Tess Needham, Robb Detlefs, Brian Fowler, and Christina Zhang ... none of this could have happened with out you! And of course all of you! We did it, ya'll!! We did it!!

 

Thank you for letting me lead the fundraising team for all these years. It has been an honor to be a part of, and serve our community.

 

With deep gratitude,

 

Monica
