PTO Meetings to Become
Less Business and More Social
Meetings... few of us enjoy them.
Social time... what parent has time for that?
We understand your time is precious, and after a long day, the last thing you want to sit through is a meeting. But wouldn't it be nice to have the opportunity to meet other parents and have some fun with your student(s) at the same time?
If you answered a resounding, "YES!", then take note as PTO is looking to mix a bit of business with fun for our monthly "meeting" as we move into the 2016-17 year.
The goal in changing our format to a Meeting/Social is to get the business of the PTO completed quickly and efficiently in a casual and fun environment, while enabling social time for students, parents, grandparents, Edison staff, and volunteers. Please join us - come to get to know the members of your Edison community. No sitter? No problem! The kids are also welcome since we are planning activities for the social portion that include them too!
The PTO Meetings/Socials will continue to be held the second Wednesday of each month, and our first Meeting/Social event will be on September 14th at 6:30pm. We are calling it Sprinkles and Sprinklers. This will be an ice cream social for the whole family, so siblings are welcome. This is a FREE event and will be held on the Edison playground. Ice cream, sprinkles, and popsicles will be provided by PTO.
The October meeting will be held at Busy Bees Art Studio in Mentor where you can make a craft alongside your student. There are many items to choose from that you can paint. Families will pay for the items of their choice. Food and drinks will be provided by PTO.
Future meetings will include things such as a night at Chuck E Cheese, Edison Spirit week crafts, Family Fitness night, Reading night (come in your PJs!), and a Lawn Yahtzee craft night. For details each month's meeting/social - check the PTO Calendar.
This new format is being organized by our Engagement Committee - chaired by Wendy Fiebig. Wendy would love to hear your thoughts and ideas (or even get a few volunteers to help on her committee). You can contact her at 330-842-7076 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
