Eagle Run and Direct Ask fundraiser

Our annual Eagle Run was a huge success and SO MUCH FUN!  This year the Eagle Run is raising money to grant to the school for paras (assistants to 1-5th grade teachers) for next year.  Our goal is to raise $80,000! If each student donated $150 we would reach our goal, but every dollar counts no matter the size!  Help us continue supporting our students and teachers at Edison for next year. 
* To be eligible for prizes, please return the sponsor sheet and donations by October 11.
