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.

This week selected students will be participating in the program Breaking Down the Walls. It's a comprehensive program designed to unify, empower, and engage every student to create a positive and supportive campus climate.

Good Evening Edison Families!

I want to start by sending my congratulations to the Homecoming honor court, especially Homecoming Queen Samantha Ortiz and Homecoming King Jaime Ruvalcaba.  Both are great students and are perfect examples of the type of students we have at Edison High School.  Home coming is a fun time and students really get into the spirit of homecoming.  Thanks to all the students who work hard on their homecoming skits and to the parents for being involved in your student's extracurricular activities.

On September 26, 2016, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law AB 2246, addressing Pupil Suicide Prevention Policies. One of the things that the law requires school districts to do is implement a curriculum for secondary students on mental wellness. Subsequently, Fresno Unified School District has adopted the SOS Signs of Suicide Prevention Program to address the problems of youth depression and suicide simultaneously and age appropriately. This year, the program is being offered to all 10th grade students at Edison High School, and throughout the district. The implementation will begin on Tuesday October 16, 2018. If you have a 10thgrade student, please check with them, as more detailed information was sent home with them last Friday. Due to the sensitivity of the topic, if you prefer your student not to participate in the SOS Program, please contact Miss. De La Cruz, our School Social Worker or Mrs. Buchan, our School Psychologist at 457-2650

On Wed evening at 4:30pm – 7:30pm we have the CTE Expo at Chukchansi Park.  Career technical Education are courses taught by credentialed instructors who have a CTE credential in the industry sector.  CTE is an option for students who want to explore real world learning opportunities that offer work-based learning experiences.  Over half of the student body is enrolled in CTE.
