Adventure Dash provides an obstacle course style fun run that is a hug hit with the kids! Each day, the AD team teaches the kids a new lesson about staying healthy and active. The kids are also encouraged to go home and raise money to help us meet our fundraising goals! They will have amazing incentives in place for achieving these goals including extra recess, Toilet Paper a Teacher Challenge and a Paint Balloon Battle vs. Coach/PTA Board! This is sure to be a fun and successful event for all!
Our Adventure Dash kickoff will be on Wednesday, September 19th and Dash Day will be Friday, September 28th. Dash times are as follows:
Kindergarten and 1st- 1:15 pm
2nd and 3rd- 10:15am
4th and 5th- 9am
Active Learning- 9:45
We will need volunteers to hand out water during the dashes. Here is the link to the sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0f4ca5a629a1f49-adventure

This Friday Night!
PTA invites all our Wildcats and their dads, or another male in their lives, to join us for donuts with dad October 4 & 5 mornings.
Enjoy donuts, coffee, and juice with your fellow Eddins families in the gym before classes start.
This free event, sponsored by Eddins PTA, begins at 7:15am both mornings. We hope to see you there!
You can make an exceptional difference at Eddins! Volunteers are always needed at both the classroom and school-wide levels and we have several areas that can use your help. There are opportunities for everyone to contribute - we have many working parent volunteers and volunteers with younger children too! Many of these opportunities require very little time.
Please see the Volunteer opportunities here or contact Wendy Holcomb at Wendy1Realtor@outlook.com for more information. Thank you in advance for the time, talent, and donations you volunteer to support all of the students and staff at Eddins this year!
Please make sure that you complete your 2018-2019 MISD Volunteer Background Check so you are able to volunteer and be part of school activities on campus. A new application is required every school year.
Contribute to Class Parties!
You no longer have to worry about sending class party supplies with your child to school throughout the year for in-classroom parties!

We are asking for a $15 contribution per child toward hosting your student's Holiday, Valentine's, and End of Year parties. Contributions can be made through our online PTA Spirit Store . Thank you for your continued support!
