Welcome, Kindergarten Parents!  The PTA offers kindergarten tote bags as a service to the teachers, who recommend totes for kindergarten instead of backpacks because they are easier for your children to pack and unpack by themselves. Carrying their kindergarten tote is a rite of passage for Edgemont’s newest students, and many older kids still use theirs!

The tote is 12 oz. cotton with royal blue trim.  The dimensions are 18”L x 14”H and 7”W.  The cost is $20, which includes an embroidered Edgemont paw print and your child’s name in Edgemont royal blue. All proceeds benefit the Edgemont Elementary PTA.

All tote bags ordered by August 17th will be delivered to your child’s classroom on the first day of school.  In the event we are learning from home, bags will be delivered to your house. (Please note that orders placed after August 3rd may not be ready in time for the start of school.) If necessary, a second order will be placed at the start of the school year to accommodate individuals who miss the original deadline.

If you would like to order a tote, please place your order ONLINE by following these easy steps:

1.  Log on to the PTA Website www.PTA-Edgemont.org

2.  If this is your first time on our site, create a username (your email address) and a password for the site by clicking on “Register to Receive Site News.”  Remember both – you will need them often throughout your children’s time in elementary school!

3. Once you have logged on, click on the blue “Fundraisers” Tab.

4. Click on “Kindergarten Totes” in the blue box on the left under "PTA Store" section.

5. On the bottom of the page, select your child’s school, and then enter your child’s name as you would like it to appear on the tote bag.

6.  Click “Add” to add the bag to your cart, and then complete the checkout process as you would with any online transaction (please note that the PTA website does not take American Express.)

7. You will receive a confirmation email from my-pta.com as a receipt of your purchase.

8. Continue exploring the PTA website - you’ll find lots of helpful information there!
