PTA News 

Last updated May 25, 2022

Edison Bobcats, we would like to thank you beyond measure for the enormous amount of kindness and generosity you have shown us all year long. We never felt like guests at Edison, but instead a true member of the Edi-Linc family. We will miss all of the staff, teachers, students and families at Edison, but know that this is not the end of the friendships that have begun. To honor these friendships, the Lincoln PTA is planting a tree at Edison with a plaque inscribed "Dedicated to the Edi-Linc friendships we planted this year and will continue to grow." Thank you once again for graciously hosting us this year, and wishing you another successful year with Field. 

Sincerely, The 2021-22 Lincoln Lions

Well, it's been a wonderful and crazy five years on the Edison PTA Board working a variety of positions striving to enhance our students' experiences at Edison Elementary through the mission of the PTA. The time for change has arrived, and the Edison PTA Board is largely new and creative and will bring a great year for our students at Edison next school year. The new Edison PTA Executive Board is a dynamic group of smart and dedicated parent volunteers. 

Thank you to our community for your continuous support of the PTA.  Without paid members, donations and volunteers, ideas for enrichment cannot become a reality for our students.  This community has been the beacon of support. Our students are so lucky!

With Gratitude, Tracy Ries
