The EDMES PTA was established in 1986 and has been a vital part of our school and community ever since. Throughout the years the PTA has contributed to the educational, cultural and social programs in EDMES.  Our PTA is made up of a wonderful group of parents and educators who work together to improve the lives of all the children and staff we serve.  

We are proud to have 100% teacher membership participation at our school.

Our PTA has received the Gold Seal award for maintaining the aims and purposes of the PTA. Our PTA is always changing for the better and will continue to support our school and our community.

The EDMES PTA coordinates numerous fundraising projects through out the year in order to fund the projects and initiatives we are proud to offer to the students and educators.  The PTA is dedicated to bringing NEW PTA sponsored initiatives to the school and providing new and existing extra curricular activities; assemblies, field trips, classroom activities & supplies.    


The EDMES PTA sponsors numerous events & clubs; offering free movie nights, ice cream socials, and free family events. 


In the 2019/2020 school year the EDMES PTA sponsored Lego Club, Garden Club and the PTA Reflections Program.


Our PTA strives to bring in numerous assemblies and presentations yearly, encompassing all grades and in line with curriculum.
