Announcements for the Week of Nov. 18

Hello all in the Land of Eagles,

This is Lea Barone, Sally Whitelock and Benita Cervantes with the announcements for the week of November 18.

Safe Drop off and Pick up
Please help us keep kids safe as they come to school and go home each day. Please use the Kiss & Go/Greet & Get lane to quickly drop off and pick up students – please do not park here. Please follow all traffic laws – do not stop/park in crosswalks or in front of driveways or in the bus lane. Please do not drop off students in the middle of the road. Please support our caring, courteous school community by watching out for our children and treating each other with respect. THANK YOU!

Reading Is Fundamental
is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov 19. At this fun event, every Edison student gets to choose one book (provided by the PTA) to take home. Support is needed to set up books on Nov. 18 after school and to help students pick out books during the school day on Nov 19. Thank you to all those who have volunteered to help. We still need help with clean up after school, if you would like to volunteer, please sign up at:
