Spaghetti In A Hot Dog Bun Read Aloud

Let's read a book! Click the link above for our book of the week!

Lucy is teased by a boy at school because she is different. She has the courage to be true to herself and to make the right choice when that same boy needs her help.


"What a wonderful book for children of all ages to learn how to treat others with respect and accept differences! " -Melissa Parrish


Spaghetti In A Hot Dog Bun empowers children to be who they are, despite what others say. Other themes that are included in this book: Courage, Friendship, Bullying, Self-Esteem and Kindness

A note from our counselors...

Meals for Edison Students

Families, Edison’s meal distribution system will work in the following way:


Students can pick up meals from Edison each school day 11:46 AM till noon in the Edison SOUTH SIDE PARKING LOT.


Students can also pick up meals from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday- Friday at Baker, First Creek, Giaudrone, Gray, Jason Lee, Mason, Meeker, Stewart, Truman and Wainwright, as well as scheduled stops on 33 routes through district neighborhoods.


Go to Nutrition Services - Tacoma Public Schools (tacomaschools.org) for more details and a weekly menu.

Please apply for free and reduced-price meals


All of Tacoma students can currently receive free meals, but there are many reasons to apply for free and reduced-price meals this month anyway. While meals are free right now, the federal government waiver that makes that possible expires on December 31. The waiver might be extended, but applying for free or reduced-price meals now can make sure qualifying students are covered either way.


If you qualify for free and reduced-price meals, you might also be eligible for things like free access to internet or discounts on childcare or cable television service. And, your free and reduced-price meal applications are tied to supplemental educational funding that helps our school.


To sign up for free or reduced-price meals, go to www.tacomaschools.org/nutrition. For additional information, call Nutrition Services at 253-571-3370.

I need to apply for free and reduced school lunches.
