One rule we have at our school is “Be Respectful”. Showing respect helps everyone feel welcome and safe. When we act respectfully, we listen carefully to each other, help each other, and try to understand how someone else feels. When we speak respectfully, we use friendly words and say please and thank you. We don’t call other people names. This week, think about how you can act and speak in respectful ways in the classroom, hallways, lunchroom, and out at recess. 

Student Emergency Kits - Past Due! 

Every student should have an emergency kit by now. Teachers, if you have a list of students who have not turned in their kits, the office can send out reminders. 

We still have about 15 emergency kits for which we haven’t received payment. These can now be purchased by anyone, on a first come, first serve basis. Turn in exact cash or check made out to Edison PTA to the office. Kits will be delivered directly to the teacher once payment is received.
