Eddins 2018 Fall Fundraiser and Fun Run! 

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

Eddins Night at MISD Stadium

This Friday Night!

On September 21st, Eddins students are invited to support the Boyd Broncos football team at the new MISD Stadium.  Students who wear their school spirit shirt will be admitted free (a parent must accompany them and purchase their own ticket) to the game.  They will be invited down to the football field for a photo opportunity with the high school mascots and cheerleaders. **Students will need to enter the stadium on the home side and proceed to the concourse plaza on the southwest side no later than 6:30 pm a the new MISD Stadium.** 

We would love to have a great turn out from our Wildcats!

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.

 You no longer have to worry about sending class party supplies with your child to school throughout the year for in-classroom parties! Grade level coordinators, room parents, and party coordinators will take care of purchasing supplies. 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 .
