Thank you for supporting our annual Scholastic Book Fair

Scholastic Book FairThank you to everyone who came to Edison’s annual Scholastic Book Fair in February. We raised over $1,000 for new library books. I hope you are enjoying your new books. I know the library is!


Edison Reading Expectation

readEvery 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. You can read silently and independently. You can read out loud to a parent or loved one. You can follow along while a parent or another reader reads to you. ALL of these activities count as reading. Read short books or long books, fiction or non-fiction. Pick the method and the material that interests you. You can be SURE that if you practice reading every night, you WILL become a good reader! This is 100% GUARANTEED!
