A Message from Mr. Morrison

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

   A lot is happening on campus this year, including the opeining of our new football, softball and baseball stadiums.  In addition, our 1,300 seat gymnasium will be open in time for the Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2020 in the spring!

   Our marching band wrapped up another fantastic season with their annual Varsity Show and the vocal music department’s production of “The Sound of Music” is scheduled for the middle of November.

Congratulations to the band members and band director Mr. Marc Sansone, as well as the choir, the production cast, crew and musical director Mr. Gregory Hoffmeister for their amazing performances this fall. In addition, our music department is preparing to perform at our annual Veterans Day assembly, along with numerous Christmas concerts and performances.  Please see our schedule of events and support our Fine Arts Department.

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

 The fall athletic season wrapped up with our Wildcat football team earning their first trip to the playoffs since 2002.  The Cross Country program was resurrected this season as we competed in our first Cross Country events in 14 years. Our junior high football team finished the football season 6-1-1 and were BMC runners up. All of our other fall teams competed well and improved each and every week.  Our winter athletes are hard at work preparing for their seasons and will begin competition Thanksgiving week.  You can check all the schedules at and check out the weekly update every Sunday on Facebook and Twitter.

   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.
