12/14/2022 From Mr. Hermes, Principal of Edison Elementary School I know that PARKING is very limited at Edison Elementary and it becomes very hectic during community events so I wanted to send a couple reminders: 1. Parents or visitors should NOT park in the back staff parking lot at any time. Our students arrive and dismiss from this area if they ride a bus and we want to make sure that they are safe from any moving vehicles 2. Parents or visitors should NOT park by the warehouse in front of the preschool playground. We have some parents who use this area to drop their child off due to pre-arranged special circumstances so we need to make sure this area is open at all times 3. Parents or visitors should NOT pull up and park in the quad area where kindergarten students get dismissed. We do have a couple parents who need to use this area for special circumstances but this has been approved by administration. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Mr. Hermes at 419-656-9727. Thanks for your help as we strive to keep our students safe!

October 24, 2022 Wear Your Costume to School Day Dear Parents, On Friday, October 28 we will be hosting “Wear Your Costume to School Day” at Edison Elementary. The goal is to have FUN while still continuing to maintain a SAFE learning environment. On this day your child may wear their costume to school as long as the following guidelines are followed: ? Costumes MUST not restrict learning. This includes costumes that make learning, sitting at a desk, participating in gym, using the restroom or walking up and down stairs difficult. ? Students MAY wear their COVID-19 face coverings if that is their preference. NO other facial masks will be allowed. ? NO violent or inappropriate costumes will be allowed. ? No blood, weapons, or inappropriate words/gestures ? Appropriate school clothes MUST be worn under the costume ? Edison Elementary staff reserve the right to have a child remove their costume if deemed inappropriate. On Friday, October 28th there will NOT be a classroom party of any kind. This FUN spirit day is just something we felt we could offer the students and still maintain a safe learning environment. We appreciate your support and cooperation in following all the above guidelines!October 3, 2022 Dear Edison Elementary School Families, You are cordially invited to attend the 2022 Edison Elementary School Open House with your child on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Open House is a wonderful opportunity for you to learn what your child’s routine is, ask general questions about your child’s school day/curriculum, and have your child provide you with a tour of his/her classroom, library, art room, music room, gymnasium, etc. With parent/teacher conferences a few weeks after Open House we will not discuss any academic progress during Open House Night. Please remind your child that we expect the same wonderful behavior they exhibit during the school day during this special evening time, as well. We will once again offer a parent/teacher conference sign-up at Open House. We will have conference sign-up sheets in the gymnasium so that you can make an appointment to meet with your child’s teacher during our parent/teacher conferences on Nov. 3rd and 7th. If you have more than one child in the building we encourage you to coordinate your conferences by signing up for back-to-back appointments if possible. Parents who attend Open House will be granted the conference time that they sign up for that night. If you are unable to attend Open House you will receive a letter with an appointment time listed for parent/teacher conferences. We realize that with your busy schedules time is limited. We encourage you to attend Open House so that we may accommodate as many of you as possible with conference times. We look forward to seeing you on October 11 from 6:30-7:30 as the students proudly display their work from the start of a very successful school year! Sincerely yours, David Hermes Edison Elementary PrincipalThe first grade students learned about the Constitution from some special guests!!09/21/2022 from Mr. Hermes: Due to the overwhelming response to our Morning Care program we are in need of some volunteers who would be willing to help with supervision from 7:45-8:45 Monday-Friday. If you are interested in helping us out please email me directly at [email protected]. We would require an updated background check to be on file. If we can't find any volunteers we may need to make adjustments to our Morning Care program by limiting the amount of students we can accept each day. 09/20/2022 PRESCHOOL PARENTS!!! If your child attends the AM preschool session we need to make an adjustment to drop-off procedures. Please park in the parking lot across the street from the school or on the street opposite our pickup/drop-off lane and walk your child to the preschool entrance. We have roughly 80-100 Kindergarten-3rd grade students getting dropped off for Morning Care between 7:15-8:00 so it is important that no one is parked in the drop-off lane during this time. I appreciate your cooperation!

This year Edison Elementary will be starting a new initiative to increase our students early literacy skills. All students in grades K-3 have been given their own copy of Charlotte's Web. Students in grades K-1 will be bringing their copy of the book home with them today, while students in grades 2-3 will keep their books at school. Each Monday morning we will have a guest reader read a chapter of Charlotte's Web. Students in grades K-1 will listen to the chapter and then be asked questions by their homeroom teacher. Students in grades 2-3 will follow along in their own book as the guest reader reads. The video of the guest reader will be shared with all parents each Monday so you can also follow along at home with your child. At the conclusion of the book we will watch the movie here at school and enjoy some special snacks. The students seem SUPER excited about this opportunity and it is our hope that you can also join in by watching the videos at home with your child and ask them some follow up questions about each chapter.
09/13/2022 Cub Scouts (for boys and girls in grade K -5)Milan Pack 215 Carnival will be at Town Square on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, 6:00 - 8:00 pm!A climbing wall will be available to try out!

Now that we are two weeks into the school year I wanted to let parents know that they will no longer be able to walk their child to the classrooms. Starting Wednesday, September 7 (NO SCHOOL MONDAY OR TUESDAY) all students must be dropped off and enter the building by themselves. If for any reason you need to speak to your child's teacher please email them to set up a good time for both of you. If you have any other questions or concerns please contact the Edison Elementary Office. Thanks and have a great holiday weekend!09/01/2022Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow is the last day to order your Super Charger T-Shirts. Order forms came home with your child last week. If you would like to order shirts, please complete the form and return it to your child's homeroom teacher. 08/30/2022 From Mr. Hermes:During orientation I stressed the importance of following the arrival and dismissal procedures if you are transporting your child to school. I would like to revisit those procedures as we have had some confusion during the first week of school that is causing problems in our pickup/drop-off lane. If you are transporting your child to or from school please follow these procedures: 1. The pickup/drop-off lane in front of Edison Elementary School is for pickup/drop-off only. You may NOT exit your car or park in this area. This lane of traffic needs to keep moving at all times so please drop your child off and exit the line so traffic flow keeps moving efficiently. 2. If you want to walk your child to the door or enter the building for any reason please park on the opposite side of the street or in the parking lot located by the A-Field. Your patience and cooperation is greatly appreciated during arrival and dismissal. Our #1 goal is to make sure students get to and from school safely and we need your help in doing that.
