A Season of Giving - The Edison Holiday Giving Program is an opportunity for Edison families and staff to directly donate to our families in greatest need of support. As our number of families in need has increased, we have decided to collect gift cards to grocery stores (Aldi, Ultra Foods, Jewel), and department/household stores (Walmart, Target, Kohl’s), gas cards (BP, Mobil etc.) as well as new hats and gloves. The collection for this program will be December 9 through December 13. Gift card donations can be dropped off in the office where they will be kept safe. There will be a bin for hats and gloves in the Guidance Office.
Student Council will be sponsoring “Wear It To Share It,” a fundraiser where students and staff wear pajama pants every Friday in December for $1 to share with our Edison families through our Edison Holiday Giving program.
PACE Testing Deadline Approaching - All middle school students in District 200 are welcome to participate in SAT testing in February. Results will be used to qualify students for 7th grade Fast Paced Language Arts, 7th grade Fast Paced Mathematics, 8th grade Fast Paced Language Arts, and 8th grade Fast Paced Mathematics for the 2014-2015 school year. Students who are currently enrolled in 6th grade FPLA and/or FPM are also invited to participate – their results on the SAT test will not be used to exit any students from the PACE Program. The registration form and fee ($50) are due to the PACE office by Friday, December 13, 2013. Testing will be held at Monroe Middle School on Saturday morning, February 1, 2014 from 8:30AM to 12:30PM.
