Ms. Osuna Nationally Board Certified Teacher
Edison SLD teacher Anne Osuna was recognized as a National Board Certified teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. She worked to demonstrate her instructional and management skills for the review and the use of her lesson plans, lesson observations and student results to qualify her for this prestigious award. We are proud of her efforts to represent the professionalism of MPS teaching staff.
2017-2018 School Board Honorees
Edison was honored to be a spotlight school at the 9-26 MPS Board Meeting. We were able to honor a student (Eseta T.) a volunteer, (Mrs. Peterson), a teacher, (Ms. Gramstad), and our Customer Service champ (Mrs. Maldanado). We had a great turn out of family and staff to support our winners.
Each person received an award and got to meet the MPS Board members as part of their recognition. We are so proud to have them represent us as Edison Eagles.
Donors Choose Donations
Edison had several classrooms that earned grant donations from the Ripple company donation to Donors Choose. Ms. Freshley, Mrs. Luebbert, Mrs. Elmer and Mrs. Soloff all had their projects funded during this $29 million donation from the company sponsor. Edison students will enjoy the new items for class from books, science equipment, and classroom furniture. Thanks to those teachers for getting those grants on for this wonderful opportunity.
