March is here and Legacy: Edison's Bright Night is right around the corner! Check your mailbox and this website for exciting auction updates in the coming weeks.
Legacy: Edison's Bright Night is a fantastic party and wonderful opportunity for our far-flung parents and teachers to get together. However, the most important part of the night is raising much-needed money for Edison.
Where does the money go? Here are examples of the largest items the PTO funded this 2014-2015 school year.
Plus, we fund approximately $20,000 in yearly budget items that allow Edison to function successfully and pick up where CPS budgeting ends: kindergarten orientation, teachers’ supply stipends, sporting event referees, copier contracts, postage stamps for the office, and the 8th grade graduation reception, just to name a few.
We are currently raising money for the 2015-16 school year. With successful fundraising, we anticipate we’ll continue funding many of the same items next year. By reaching our goal of $100,000 for the year, we open up the possibility of contributing money to more exciting projects, while also being prepared for the possibility of further CPS budget cuts.
By working together as a community, we can enrich our environment for both our our students and our fantastic faculty.
