T-Shirt Logo:

The 5th annual Read-A-Thon continues our tradition at Thomas Edison Elementary School of emphasizing the joy of reading, growing as readers,  and helping support our school programs. Although this event is a fund raising activity, our true goal is to inspire students to become life-long readers.

 Edison Elementary is proud to be an Advanced Technology Magnet and Spanish FLAG School. We are also a Title 1 school. Read-A-Thon is organized by parent volunteers with the Thomas Edison Elementary Foundation (TEEF). Students can create their own fundraising pages by clicking on the "Fundraise" button above.  Parents:  you can help set up the page, just be sure to type in the student's name on the Sign-Up page so that donations get credited to the student.  You may use the email address of your choice to track your student's progress.  You can also create a team for your teacher if you do not see one already. 


Students who participate and raise funds will be eligible to receive prizes.
