The Meet the Masters Art Program is a Parent-led art education series that is in its 5th year here at Edison. Many returning volunteers have already stepped forward to help lead the sessions again this year, but a number of classes could still use some volunteers. If you are interested in learning more about this wonderful and interesting arts education program or in volunteering, please contact Elaine Lawson at ELLGSB911@gmail.com.
Patricia Donohue, one of Edison's Educational Assistants and great garden supporter, has started a garden activity she's calling Monday Mindful Gardening. She has organized a number of kid-friendly activities -- drawing, music making, dead-heading flowers, raking leaves --- in the garden during lunch recess. The first Monday was a huge success and she could use some extra adults to assist. Monday Mindful Gardening is held in the garden on Mondays from 11:30-12:30. Patricia can be reached at email@example.com Robin is also looking for 2 or 3 parents to help assist with cooking projects in Edison classrooms on Monday/Wednesday afternoons during the month of November. If you are interested, please send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
