Congratulations to Edison's Forensics team who won 1st place in varsity debate sweepstakes for small school entries.

Week 17    December 3 - December 7, 2018

Good Evening Edison Families!

This is Principal Munoz with some announcements for the week

There are 10 more school days until the winter break.  Please encourage your student to stay focused and do their very best on their finals.  First semester finals are the week of Dec. 10th -14th.  Please refer to website for details of the finals schedule. Students take advantage of the study sessions offered after school to help prep for finals

Congratulations goes out to Edison's efuel teams who won both the D-1 and D-2 district championships on Saturday

I wanted to recognize all the students who have committed random acts of kindness for people in our community.  It is an example of the type of students we have at Edison that genuinely cares about all people and demonstrate their care by putting it into action  You make Edison proud.

Parents last week I communicated that beginning next semester the enforcement of a loss of privilege list for all extracurricular activities will be implemented.  I originally thought that students who receive a GPA of less than a 2.0 could not participate, however being that there are many students with more than 1 D or F, I think it's important that I revisit a reasonable criterion.  Extracurricular activities are a privilege, not a right.  Remember academic performance matters and is expected of all Edison students. 

Parents of 9th, 10th and 11th grade students should have received a letter informing them of how to check out a ASUS tablet for use at home.  If you are interested in checking out a device for your student, both parents and students need to log into their ATLAS portal.

Week 14- November 12 - November 16, 2018

Good Evening Edison Families!

 This is Principal Munoz with some announcements for the week

I'd like to start out by thanking all of our parents who have served in the armed forces.  Thank you for your service and your courage to defend freedom.

The behavior of some of our young students on Thursday was unacceptable.  Students were reckless and created an unsafe situation.  Thanks to the quick thinking of our safety team, the two primary students involved were immediately apprehended.  Initially, it was hard to be sure the number of students that where involved because students were being released after the last period of the day.  A large swarm of students, more than 100, ran around following some student instigators with their phones out looking to take a video of a fight.  They ran across the campus multiple times.  Thinking student safety first, our SRO called for police back up which swiftly arrived on campus.  To our knowledge no weapons were involved and only one fight occurred.  Thank goodness that nobody got trampled or injured by the big crowd.  I'm sure it looked bad as parents drove up to pick up their students, however I appreciated the quick response of Officer Hughes to call for additional help.  Although, we probably didn't need that many police officers, it was good to know they could get to us as quickly as they did. 

I also spent all day investigating the incident and taking strict actions in addressing the behaviors of specific students.  I addressed all students via the school intercom to express my disappointment and expectations for student behaviors.  I took time and visited almost every classroom and let students know that I will not tolerate trouble makers and expect students to focus on their academics.

Please understand the goal is to graduate from high school. If student behaviors show otherwise, we will do our best to provide students with the best options to graduate.

Congrats to our Edison Water Polo Team for their remarkable accomplishments this season.  Although they came up short in the valley championship game. They played a great game losing by one in overtime I'm proud of how you competed and never gave up.  It took a very impressive individual performance to outscore the tigers. 

Now some brief announcements:

  • join our parent group Block E for coffee at 9am in the café this Wednesday
  • Also this Wednesday is Scholarship Night from 6-8pm in room W117
  • Message from the counseling office.  The UC and CSU application deadline is November 30th. Students are advised to meet with their counselor to review their application before they submit. Counselors will conduct a CSU application workshop on Wednesday, November 14th and they are also available at lunch or after school.  If you have any questions, please contact the Counseling Department at 457-2650
  • You have another week to see Noises Off.  This is a must see Theater production.  The reviews have been positive and impressive so come out and enjoy the show.  It opens this Thursday at 6 pm.  With a show on Friday evening and a matinee show at 1pm Saturday and evening show Saturday night.
  • NO LATE START on FRIDAY November 16th
  • Sat Nov. 17th is Edison's food give-away from 8:30-to 3:00pm
