A Message from Mr. Morrison
As we begin a new year, it’s important to highlight the many activities and fundraisers conducted at Edison as 2018 drew to a close.
One major goal has been met with the completion of construction projects at the school. Work wrapped up before students returned from Christmas break and the building now has a more modern look. Projects included replacing windows in the gymnasium and school addition dating back to 1962, expanding the music room area and moving the Vo-Ag classroom into the organization’s on-site building. Additionally, the Vo-Ag building woodshop was renovated to create a classroom and new woodshop and welding shop areas were added. Further upgrades occurred in the chemistry lab, which features new storage and work areas, while the assistant principal and guidance offices switched places and the handicapped-accessible entry leads to a secure vestibule area. Other work included updating the auditorium and 1962 wing classrooms with LED lighting. These improvements will definitely maintain our school and benefit students well into the future.
During the second nine weeks, teachers completed professional development training which focused on reading strategies and the school honored our nation’s bravest during the annual Veteran’s Day assembly in November. Students were also lauded for their accomplishments with about 155 pupils receiving academic letters, while junior high and high school Beta Club inductions were also held.
We congratulate them for their achievements. The annual powder puff football game was held at Cartwright Stadium to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Hospital and about $200 was collected at the conclusion.
Students then took the stage during the successful production of the musical “The Wedding Singer” while band and choir students performed at their Christmas concerts.
The holidays also brought about many fundraisers and collections to assist local residents. About 300 toys were collected to benefit children within the district and the Beta Club gathered more than 4,000 canned goods for area food pantries.
Finally, the Dome Theater program visited the school and junior high students enjoyed an interactive event by watching a science movie on Force 5 extreme weather. The program was provided by the Jefferson County Educational Service Center’s Quest for Success program
