Edison Language Academy


PTA at Edison 2019-2020

All parents/guardians and teachers and school staff are encouraged to join the Edison PTA.  PTA organizes special events, helps communicate important school information, sponsors programs and events that help build community at our school, promotes health and safety, and provides important financial support for supplies, enrichment programs and activities.  Our PTA is also part of the California State PTA and National PTA, important child advocacy organizations.  

PTA Association Meetings are open to all Edison families and are generally held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month in the Edison Library.  Meetings are conducted in both languages and are a monthly opportunity to find out what’s happening at school, learn about a topic of interest, ask questions, and interact with other families. The PTA is a volunteer organization and all parent members are elected by the members of the Association. The principal and a teacher representative are ex oficio members of the Executive Board.  To reach all parts of our community, some meetings are held in the mornings (8:30-9:30 am) and some in the evenings (6:00-7:00pm).  Please become a member of the Edison PTA and get involved.
