    Edison News and Events

    Panther Palooza! Student Council is hosting the annual Panther Palooza end-of-the-year event on Thursday, May 23, right after school from 3:00-4:30 PM. The entrance fee is only $3 at the door. There will be snacks, pizza (for sale for $2/slice), spikeball, bags, basketball, soccer, volleyball, a photo booth, and more! But one of the most popular events is the dunk tank featuring some of our Edison Teachers! The activity bus will be available to take students home if needed. All of the proceeds will be donated to the Humanitarian Service Project Party-in-a-Box Project which provides birthday presents and party essentials to families in need.

    8th Grade Dance - Student Council is hosting the annual 8th grade dance on Friday, May 31 from 7-9 PM. This year’s theme is Under the Sea. The cost is $5 and 2 cans of food. The canned food will be donated to the People’s Resource Center. Also this year, we will have raffle prizes for students to win gift cards to favorite places around the area. We are very excited for this event; please encourage your 8th graders to come out for a great time. Please note: Dress is casual. Many girls choose to wear sundresses and other summery clothing, but all district dress code guidelines still apply. Students must wear shoes for the duration of the dance, so please encourage your child to wear comfortable shoes.

    Order Your Child’s 2019-20 School Supply Kits by June 28 - The site to purchase 2019-20 school supply kits is up and running. Kits ordered before June 28 will be delivered to Edison and available for pick up on Locker Set-Up Day, August 15. The supply lists have also been updated and are on the Edison website. Parents can get to the supply lists and/or the link to order kits through our website under Parents/School Supply Lists.
