Edison High School-Junior High

Mr. Morrison’s Annual Update
 
 Hello everyone, and welcome to our 29th year at Edison High School!

 

In 2020-2021, Edison High School continued to expand and improve upon the curriculum and services that we offer to our students.  We are continuing work with our Career Pathways Coach, Mrs. Leah Eft.  A former high school guidance counselor, Mrs. Eft served our students this year as they prepared for life after high school.  Mrs. Eft set up internships, presentations, and worked with students individually to ensure that they will be either enrolled, enlisted, or employed after graduating from Edison High School. A big part of Mrs. Eft’s work with our students is to get them to achieve the Ohio Means Jobs certification, which will be a part of their diploma in the future.  We continue to strengthen our College Credit Plus program, offering new classes this year in College Art.  This year many more Edison seniors from the Class of 2021 will graduate with both their high school diploma and an Associate of Arts degree from Eastern Gateway Community College.

In addition, we continue to offer one to one technology at all grades.  Thanks to the help of the Tech Department, each of our students was issued their own Chromebook and charger to assist in their classroom learning.  This one to one Chromebook initiative helped to ease the transition into remote learning during the year when schools continued to offer remote instruction due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  We also strengthened our partnership with the Village Network, which opened up even more opportunities for our students to take care of their mental health with minimal disruption to the educational process.  The partnership with the Village Network was even more apparent during remote learning when our students were able to schedule appointments at Edison High School to meet with counselors and meet their socio-emotional needs.

Our Vocal and Instrumental music departments were busy throughout the year.  The Edison High School Marching Band held its 15th annual Tearin’ Up the Turf marching band show and a variety of entertaining concerts. The Senior High Vocal Music Department put on an outstanding performance of the musical, Jukebox, and the Junior High entertained us with another fantastic musical performance of Honk, Jr, in addition to numerous concert performances. 

Our service organizations, the Senior BETA club and the Junior BETA club, held ceremonies to induct new members and continued to help those in need in our communities with a number of charitable drives.  Our volleyball and soccer teams participated in Breast Cancer Awareness events and the proceeds from our annual PowderPuff football game were donated to help support the battle against breast cancer.

Our athletic teams competed honorably with our Junior High Football Team bringing home the BMC title. The FFA teams competed in several competitions at the local and state level and attended the National FFA Convention this year.
