A Message from Mr. Morrison

Hello, this is Principal Matt Morrison of Edison High School.

   A lot is happening on campus this year, including some major improvements to offer more on-site sporting events. Our track is now complete and we will be building a new, 1,300-seat gymnasium as well as baseball and softball fields. The auditorium has also been completely renovated with fresh paint, new flooring and new curtains.

   Our marching band wrapped up its season with a fantastic varsity show and the recent production of “Tarzan” was an outstanding success. Congratulations to the band members and band director Mr. Marc Sansone, as well as the production cast, crew and musical director Mrs. Dani Carroll for their amazing performances. Also, the high school hosted its annual Veteran’s Day assembly with speakers from the Richmond American Legion Post 740 and music and readings from teachers and students.

  Plenty of other good things are happening at EHS, with more than 150 students earning academic letters during an assembly on Nov. 26. School organizations have continued to grow and help the community as 70 new members were inducted into the junior and senior high Beta clubs, while members are currently collecting canned goods for Christmas. Items will be donated to local pantries to benefit needy residents. The Edison High FFA also held a Veteran’s Day Breakfast and donated $250 to the Richmond American Legion, while the soils and forestry teams advanced to the state competition and also attended the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis in October.

  The Wildcats’ winter athletic season will kick off following Thanksgiving Break while other upcoming events include the junior high band and junior and senior high choirs holding Christmas concerts in December.

   Finally, the first semester will end before Christmas Break and the last three days will include semester exams. We encourage everyone to visit EHS and support our students.
