An opportunity for Edison otters and their families to think and act green.
Climate Week is organized by the Edison PTA Go Green Committee, which aims to reduce our impact on the environment by providing programs and education that encourage our students, our families and AUSD to reduce, reuse, and recycle in school and at home.
