Meet the Masters is in full swing at Edison!
The first artist this year is Alexander Calder, an American artist who is well known for his kinetic mobiles and large outdoor stabile sculptures. Be on the lookout for a Calder-esque mobile or stabile coming home with your student in the next couple of months. There is now an exciting opportunity to see two original Calder mobiles on display at the University of Oregon's Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art. These are displayed in the Focus Gallery until January 30, 2016. And, from January 6th to February 12th entry into the JSMA is FREE to all visitors! http://jsma.uoregon.edu/location-and-hours

Edison's Direct Drive is ON! Critical staffing and programs depend on the generosity of Edison families through our Direct Drive. Did you know that over a quarter of our annual fundraising typically comes from the Direct Drive? Without this support, we would be facing either staffing cuts or more fundraisers. So, please help keep Edison strong with scheduled monthly or quarterly tax-deductible gifts through your bank's bill-pay service, or with a one-time check made out to Edison and given to Nan. Edison students, staff, and teachers thank you!
