bibfinal2016Turn in those Jogathon Envelopes! Remember to collect pledges and turn in your envelopes. As a reminder, we have a new online option for collecting pledges - check it out at and send the link out to family and friends.
We are making a big sprint to the finish - every nickel counts - we can do it, Edison! Thank you!!!  


Calling All 4th Grade Families!!

5thGradeCelebrationsThe 5th grade parents need your help!!  The idea is that 4th grade parents have the opportunity to see what the celebration entails while they help set up and serve refreshments. This will give the 5th grade parents the opportunity to enjoy the celebration with their 5th graders. Let's start a new tradition at Edison! If you are available to help please contact Wendrika at: you for paying it forward!



Popsicle Social-Save the Date!!

This year, Parent Council is putting on an End Of Year Popsicle Social on Tuesday, June 14th from 6:30 - 8pm on the Edison playground! Bring your dinner and have a picnic, or just come to play, celebrate our wonderful school, and enjoy some delicious popcicles! Everyone is welcome - See you there!  


5th Grade Celebration is June 15!

Join us Wednesday, June 15 at 6 p.m. in the Edison gymnasium for the 5th Grade Celebration. Come wish our 5th graders luck in middle school! Fourth grade parents, in particular, are encouraged to attend so they are familiar with the proceedings and better prepared to help host the celebration for their soon-to-be 5th graders.


thanksThe biggest of thank you's goes out to Mimi Kato, the outgoing Parent Council President! It is impossible to enumerate the many ways our school community benefitted from the time, care and skill you dedicated to this important role. Thank you for your outstanding leadership! 



4th grade Parents

If you know that your student(s) will not be returning to Edison in the fall, please notify Nan or Tasha in the front office. Thank you!


Last Opportunity for Community Inputinput

Eugene School District 4J is beginning a strategic visioning and planning process to develop a 3 to 5 year guiding plan. The plan will reflect what our community wants our school system to look like and where the district’s limited resources should be targeted to best support student success. The resulting district vision and plan will be presented to the school board and the public this fall. Input is critical to the success of this planning process, so please plan to attend the last Community Input session to share your thoughts...

June 2 at 7 p.m.: Fourth Public Session (Roosevelt Middle School)
