“Everything gets easier when we stop expecting it to be easy.” -Tim Grover



I am so excited to be reading and learning with you this year! We will be reading, following our curiosity, and sharing our learning.


Visit Edison DESTINY LIBRARY catalog (our Library catalog), SORA, and EPIC often to find books to read (links to the right).



Edison Reading Expectation

Every student at Edison is expected to read for at least 20 minutes every day after school. This is the BEST thing you can do to become a reader.

To fulfill this responsibility, you can:

  • Read silently and independently
  • Read out loud to a parent or loved one
  • Read to your pet or favorite stuffy
  • Follow along while a parent or another reader reads to you
  • Read short books or long books
  • Read fiction or nonfiction
  • Read something online or in your hand

Pick the methods and the materials that interest you. You can be SURE that if you practice reading every night, you WILL become a good reader! This is 100% GUARANTEED!


Beehive Book Awards

Help pick our statewide Beehive Book Award winners.

First, read one of THESE BOOKS. Be sure to finish the book (or at least 50 pages) if you want to vote on it because your vote will help pick the winners. 

The books are divided into categories: 

  • Picture Books (Easy Fiction)

  • Children’s Fiction books (chapter books)

  • Informational books (nonfiction)

  • Graphic Novels (comic books)

  • Poetry

Next, fill out a Beehive voting ballot (get one from the library or use the online version). The ballot is short and easy to fill out.

Turn in your ballot to the library at the end of the school day or on Friday. You will get a treat every time you do. Students who vote for five or more Beehive books will earn a prize. Read as many as you can!

All votes need to be submitted by the end of March 2024. The winners will be announced in April.

Overdues and Fines:

Late books can be returned without any fines. If a student has an overdue book, their borrowing privileges may be restricted. If they have an overdue book for more than a month, they will receive a paper notice that they are asked to share with their parenting adults. Their homeroom teachers will also be notified.

Students who lose a book or return a book with significant damage will be charged a fine. The best way to take care of this responsibility is to pay the fine as soon as possible. If necessary, please contact me for other options.
