A series of Edison staff are helping Mrs. Luebbert to sponsor our first Lego robotics team this year. Students are given challenges to design, build and solve with their creation using Lego kits. Their first competition will be in December and we look forward to seeing how well they compete.

Color Wars - Spirit Day
room 7 rocks it- in all red
3rd Grade- Cider Press
Edison students in Mrs. Donohue and Mrs. Charnofsky's class hosted Edison volunteer Elaine Gust and her cider press for a day of apple magic. Former Edison teachers, current staff, ASU Service Learning Interns and parents all came together to crush 40 pounds of apples into juice and learn about the science of how we get our food.
Students used their muscles to crank the wooden press and crush the apples into juice. Students also used apple coring machines to slice apples to enjoy eating. It was a great experience for all involved and we thank Mrs. Gust for her hours of volunteering service at Edison. She made it a day that our students will never forget. No blood, no spit, no snot into the press was a chant we won't soon forget.

Edison SRP Website
Edison has been selected to be an SRP energy conservation school. Mrs. Delmoe and Ms. Riccolo are leading our efforts to conserve and have attended SRP training sessions to lead our school. We are learning about our campus electricity use and how to do a better job in efficiently using our tech tools for learning.
Service Learning-Thanks to all of our Service Learning student interns that are working on our campus this semester. We really appreciate the effort you have shown our community with your service and student support. Our kids love having you on our campus and teachers enjoy hosting.
This year we host interns that represent Grand Canyon (GCU), Arizona State (ASU), and Northern Arizona (NAU).
Edison is proud to be an AVID campus. We are building a culture of student performance and college readiness. We will develop students with the skills needed to organize their work, study for exams and apply their thinking to a variety of learning tasks.
