Recent Highlights

  • MLK Day of Service at Bradford was terrific!  Over 200 children and their adults showed up, and together, we:
    • Collected 118 pairs of shoes - 83 of which will get recycled and 35 in good enough shape to donate for use
    • Filled 16 tote bags of school supplies - one for each classroom at The Hawthorne Elementary School, Newark, NJ
    • Folded dozens of cranes for Roots & Shoots
    • Wrote 55 letters for hospitalized children
    • Collected almost $400 dollars for Toni's Kitchen and additional school supplies
    • Gathered hundreds of books

Get Involved

  • Edgemont's Book Club will run all February long! Students will participate in a read-a-long - keep an eye out for the reveal of this year's book! They can refresh their personal libraries by taking or leaving books at the swap table, and everyone is invited to a “book club” meeting on Pajama Night, Feb 28th. Interested in helping out? Contact info@edgemontpta.org!
  • With spring comes Green Eggs & Ham, our big family event!  The GEAH committee is looking for volunteers - this event is all hands on deck. Spring may seem far away, but jumping in now will be fun and rewarding. (Don't roll your eyes; working with cool people to pull off an epic festive event IS fun. Really.) Contact fundraising@edgemontpta.org to learn more.
