A Message from Mr. Morrison
Hello everyone, and welcome to our 27th year at Edison High School!
Over the summer, we have continued to upgrade our facilities, and the students will return to exciting renovations inside the building and out. Inside the building, our efforts were focused on the cafeteria and the auditorium. We have a new cafeteria floor, along with new tables and doors. Our auditorium has been completely renovated with new dry wall, ceiling tile, flooring, and audio visual system. The control room has been completely updated to meet the needs of a 21st century facility. New stage curtains will be installed in October. Outside, our new all-weather track has been installed around the soccer field, which is just the first phase of our dream to host all of our athletic events on our campus.
Mrs. Eft has taken on a new position as our Career Pathway specialist to ensure all of our graduates are enrolled, employed or enlisted upon graduation. She will be working in all three buildings to educate our children on all of the opportunities that best fit our students. We will continue to offer our College Credit Plus (CCP) courses. Last year, we had 14 students earn an associate’s degree from the 2019 graduating class and many more graduate completing 2 or 3 semesters of college credit. We have partnered with the Carpenters Local 186 out of Steubenville and the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 495 out of Cambridge, so students can get a leg up on their apprenticeship while still completing their high school coursework on our campus. New programs also offer students the opportunity to earn Comp TIA A-plus certification in our Computer Tech program, which enables students to be employed in the tech field immediately following graduation. We have also added CPR certification and officiating classes to give our students a leg up when they are applying for summer work or refereeing in local sports programs.
Fall sports, cheering and the marching band have been working hard all summer and are prepared to entertain us this fall. Please check our calendar for upcoming events and join us to root on the Wildcats!
Our new focus throughout the district is responsibility, respect and safety. Check out our building as we remind all of our students that we are respectful, we are responsible and we are safe!
We hope everyone has a wonderful and rewarding 2019-2020 school year.
