The Panther FunRun is this week! - This year, the PTA is partnering with the PE department to debut the Panther FunRun. The FunRun will take place during PE classes on Sept. 14 (rain date Sept. 16). Students received their donation envelopes for the FunRun in PE and are encouraged to seek donations from family and friends. 100% of donations will return to the school to support the many things the PTA and PE department provide for students. If you're interested if volunteering to help on the day of the event, please contact Amy Schmidt at email@example.com
Cyber Safety Workshops for Students and Parents - On Tuesday, September 13, Cyber Safety Consulting is visiting Edison Middle School to present at three grade level assemblies for Edison on the dangers in our digital and connected world. On Monday, September 26, a parent cyber safety workshop will take place at 7 PM at Monroe Middle School, 1855 Manchester Road, Wheaton. All District 200 parents are welcome. See the attached flier for more information.
PTA Reflections Entries Due Oct. 11 - Calling all Artists, Musicians, Dancers, Filmmakers, Photographers and Writers! We are kicking off the PTA Reflections Program at Edison. This year’s theme is “What Is Your Story?” Start brainstorming ways you can express this theme through artwork, writing, dance, film, photography and/or music. Entry forms and rules are available online at http://www.illinoispta.org/reflections.html or via the Edison PTA web site. Please submit all completed projects (with entry form) by Tuesday, October 11 to the school office. If you have any questions, contact Jill Feitl (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Student Spotlight - In an effort to promote positive leadership at Edison, we would like you to let us know if your child shines his/her BRIGHT LIGHT outside of school. We would like to spotlight students who exemplify the Panther Way! Email Mrs. Madalinski at Deana.Madalinski@cusd200.org using the subject "Student Spotlight: CHILD'S NAME/grade" and leave a brief message about your child's volunteer work, service projects, or special acts of kindness. We will "spotlight" these students on Friday's school announcements.
