Thanks a Bunch!!!
Edison would like to thank the Assistance League of the East Valley for their support of our families with clothing and shoe needs this school year.
Edison would also like to thank AZ Still for their dental care support for our students. We had 30 Edison students receive extra special treatment this past week. We know healthy and happy students do a better job learning and we appreciate our community partners for their support of education and our community.
