To support and invigorate school spirit and enrichment activities for students. To create opportunities for bonding experiences through school traditions. In addition to supporting Edison students, the Tommie Boosters Parent Group is also committed to having fun and developing friendships that help us, as parents, survive our children’s high school journey!
The Tommie Boosters meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. at Edison High School. At these meetings, we discuss issues important to the school such as community outreach, school budget, and Edison’s academic focus. We coordinate, sponsor, and fundraise for the Senior All Night Party. Tommie Booster's also volunteer at several school and community events!

2016-2017 Tommie Boosters Meeting Dates
The Tommie Boosters host a variety of fundraising initiatives during the school year to sponsor the Senior All-Night Party, a long standing tradition that returned in 2013 after being discontinued for seven years. With the help of community partners, the support of the Edison Community and Sports Foundation, and many parent, teacher and coach volunteers, we were able to bring back this fun and memorable final class event for the Class of 2013.
In the fall of 2013, Tommie Boosters organized the first annual Autumn Bazaar, a craft fair featuring 40 local artists and crafters, held in the Edison Gymnasium. A great success, this event also included food vendors, entertainment by the Edison High School Band, and an attendance of 300. The Autumn Bazaar will become the Boosters’ signature fundraising event in support of future Senior All-Night Parties.
Other fundraising activities include raffles for merchandise during school sports events, merchandise sales tables at other school and community events, such as the annual Edison BBQ and Open House, and concession sales at the Audubon Park neighborhood’s Spring Wing Ding. Proceeds for all these events go towards Edison’s Senior All-Night Party.
