News from Mrs. Spargo:

  • The 2014 Veteran's Day program was a huge success! Thank you to our guest speaker, Colonel Moseley, for inspiring our kids to reach for their dreams knowing that anything is possible if you believe in yourself. In addition, our Edison students filled the gym with heart-warming patriotic music that tugged at the hearts of our visiting Veterans, teachers, and parents. Way to go Edison Eagles!
  • Coming up in just a few weeks is the 2nd and 3rd grade holiday program entitled "Toys: the Night They Came Alive!" You will not want to miss this fabulous presentation.

From the Gym

News from Mr. Gee:

  • Students will be spending time on Classroom Based Assessments which include cardiorespiratory, flexibility, and muscle endurance.
  • Students were introduced to the Pacer Test last week. The purpose is to improve cardiorespiratory endurance and to raise their test scores on a monthly basis.
  • We will be starting our basket ball unit soon. We will be playing lots of fun games in the lower grades with the younger students.
  • Make sure your children come to school with proper gym shoes. Safety is important and we want to avoid any injuries.

From the Library

News from Ms. Nettle:
Keep checking the library to find the new books from our October Scholastic Book Fair!

Kindergarteners have been learning the rules and procedures of the library, book care, working with rhyming words and nursery rhymes.
First Graders have been using the library procedures to make book choices for the first time. All books stay in the classrooms for use there.
Second Graders have been choosing just right books to use in their classrooms. We have been learning about story parts in library class.
Third Graders have been learning all about the 5 sections of the library and the features on each type of book. The third grade students have been choosing the best fit book for their reading levels.
Fourth and Fifth Graders have been working with the text features of non-fiction books which will help them find facts fast.
