    Dear Panther Families: 

    I guess I spoke too soon last Sunday as that was clearly not the final Edison Updates of the year. Just a few items to share this week: 

    Important Parent Survey Regarding 2020-21 School Year - You undoubtedly have questions about the fall, and we continue to plan for several different scenarios so that we can offer your child the best opportunities. Our goal remains to return students to school in a manner consistent with the guidance of the Illinois and DuPage Departments of Public Health and Illinois State Board of Education. If you have already completed the re-entry form recently linked to Dr. Schuler’s end-of-year message, thank you very much. If not, please take just a moment to fill out this 2-minute survey so that we can understand your individual comfort with two of the three scenarios that include in-person instruction in our schools at the start of next school year. Thank you!!

    Quarter 4 Grades - Quarter 4 grades are posted under the Report Card link on ParentVue. At the top of the page, under Report Card > Student Grades, you will see a link that says “Click here to view report card for Quarter 4”. This link opens a printable PDF of the report card for the year. 

    Race & Equity Team - Thank you to everyone who has already reached out indicating an interest to partner with Edison staff to explore the issues of race and equity and determine next steps for our Edison community. We look forward to working with you! We will be in touch soon to try to determine days and times that might work for the group to meet. 

    And, in case you missed last week’s Edison Updates

    8th Grade Families: Summer Learning for WWS Incoming Freshmen - Wheaton Warrenville South is offering two summer programs for all incoming freshmen! The first is a summer reading program called "Tigers Read." Students pick their own book, and submit a Google Form to enter a raffle for prizes!  More information is available on South's website.

    The other is a summer bridge program to get new Tigers ready for the upcoming school year.  Students will learn study strategies, get helpful tips from current students, and learn more about South! This program is open to all students and is completely online. Registration is available on the WWS website.

    If you have any questions about either of these programs, please feel free to contact Dan Korntheuer, Assistant Principal at South (Daniel.Korntheuer@cusd200.org).  

    Learning Activity Choice Boards for Grades 6-12 - You may have seen in the superintendent’s message that the district has developed Choice Boards, similar to what was created for Spring Break, to provide students with additional learning and enrichment activities. Please encourage your child to check them out!

    School Supply Orders for 2020-21 School Year - Order your supplies online here: https://carlsonschoolkits.com/wheaton/edison-middle-school/, or if you prefer, you can print this Printable Order Form and mail your order to Edison Middle School. Orders are due by June 29.
