Keeping it REAL at Edison

Project GoalEdison just finished its renovation project funded by the bond measure. During the renovation, many of our murals were removed and not returned. Our Edison garden has been neglected and needs a lot of TLC. Part of the renovation many trees from the yard were removed. Unfortunately this has left our play yard without any shade. All of the school site funds are to be used for student academic improvements. This leaves beautification projects without any funding source. Students, teachers, staff and the community of Edison will greatly benefit and have pride in this beautification project. Most projects don't require maintenance except for the garden, which will be adopted by a classroom each month. I know I wrote many individual projects but please understand that I'm dreaming big but at the same time I understand that all activities may not take place.
