The Edgemont PTA is entirely funded by your generous contributions and our hardworking fundraising committees, including After School Clubs, Book Fair, Pizza Days, and Spring Fete.  

We contributed over $450,000 this year to support Greenville and Seely Place Elementary Schools, their students, and faculty. Of these funds, $200,000 was granted towards innovative furniture for classrooms, which your children will be using starting in September 2019!
