A message from Ms. Cervantes

Lovely Edison Community,

I have news!  I am excited to announce that I have accepted the position of principal at Columbian Elementary.  My time at Edison has been grand beyond all hopes and dreams.  Thank you for welcoming me, supporting me and allowing me to serve you.   I have had an absolute blast getting to know you, supporting your students and watching them grow.  

What a year we have had!  Wowza.  You and your students have shown great perseverance and grace under extreme conditions.  It was miraculous to watch.  My hope for all of you is to enjoy your summer and to take a moment to reflect on all you have accomplished this year.  

Thank you so very much.  I will forever be changed for the better by having been an Edison Eagle.

Mil Gracias,

Benita Cervantes

Literacy and Library successes this year

Thank you to all the Edison families and students who supported literacy at Edison this year! 

 We held our first ever all-digital Read-A-Thon, and didn’t know what to expect.  Our Edison Eagles read through winter break with 190 students logging over 162,000 minutes! That’s over 2,700 hours over those 10 days. Way to go students! Parents and grownups, you did your part too, raising over $7,500 towards classroom libraries and the school library.

During the Scholastic Book Fair, we were able to distribute 72 Read-A-Thon prizes, plus we acknowledged our grade-level top readers. We missed giving shout outs to the top readers at the annual February Family Dance, looking forward to doing that again next year.

Speaking of the Scholastic Book Fair, we sold over $9500 worth of books.  The school will receive $4700 in Scholastic Dollars to use to buy books for classroom libraries and the school library.  Thank you to all who stopped in to purchase books. It was so great to see kids in person throughout the week! Look for two Scholastic Book Fairs and the Usborne Book Fair next year.

Thank you for supporting the PTA with donations throughout the year. The PTA directly funds RiF (Reading is Fundamental), which provides Edison Eagles with a book of their choosing. 

 And big news! Our library is getting a major refresh from a DPS bond.  The library will get fresh paint, new carpet, a new circulation desk, and some other cool stuff.  We are all looking forward to seeing kids back in the library to check out books and have technology classes. 

 Keep reading, Eagles! If you need books this summer, check out Sora! (DPS online library)   https://lion.dpsk12.org/230/#1594145024307-4b0bc13d-bdf8aef2-aa12f9c2-99dc

THANKS!!! —  Mr. Carter (and Ms. D)
