Swing School Update

Hello Wonderful Edison Families!

I have an update for you about next year. The decision has been made to move Edison to the Tier I start time. That means school will start at 7:55 and end at 2:25.

For those of you that normally ride the bus, nothing has changed. Your routes will continue as they did this year. For those of you within walking distance of Edison, we will have bus pick up at the First Congregational Church on 24th and Harris. The church has been kind enough to partner with us and let us park in the parking lot with drop off and pick up taking place on the 23rd street side of the property.

Now is as good a time as any to start teaching and reminding everybody about being a good neighbor. The church is helping us out and we need to be respectful of their property. That looks like maintaining a respectful noise level and staying on the sidewalk. We can show them Edison respect by staying off their lawn and out of their flower beds. Of course, there will be more to come on this subject and more to come around the specifics as we get closer to the new year.

Stay tuned, stay safe, and stay healthy.

From the Library

Hello All,
I created a library website for Edison.  It is available under the student drop-down on the Edison website.  The direct link is:  https://sites.google.com/4j.lane.edu/edison-elementary-library/home.
The main page has a link to the Edison Library Catalog, library blog, and a preview of some of the new books kids can look forward to reading in the fall.  There is a page dedicated to all things OBOB, which has the new book list for next year, links to where the books can be found (some are currently available as eBooks or audiobooks), and I will be posting study guides as they are available.  There is a page of book recommendations divided by reading level, and all of the books currently listed are available as eBooks with the links provided.  There is a fun Explore page with themed materials like animals, space, STEAM, National Parks, and authors with links to fun projects, videos, and museums.  Finally, there is a page with links to our digital resources like Epic, Seesaw, Clever, Capstone, National Geo Kids, and others, and a link to the log-in access document for the digital services currently supported by the district for distance learning.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know.  I hope this gives you and our students another resource and will be helpful going forward as a fun way to interact with the library!
