Barnes and Noble Book Fair is on Friday, Dec. 6 at the B&N in the Village Crossing in Skokie (Touhy and Carpenter). Starting at 4 p.m. (final schedule TBD) we'll have teacher story time, crafts and student performances/demonstrations by participants in our music and after school programs. A percentage of all purchases made by the Edison community all day will be donated to the PTO, and teachers will have wish lists for their class libraries. Come do your holiday shopping and buy a gift for your classroom as well!
WHAT A DAY!
Last Friday's Track-a-thon was full of sunshine, smiles, camaraderie, community, amazing t-shirts, speedy legs and determination. We kicked off the event with a one lap race and 6th graders Stephen and Jake took 1st and 2nd, respectively (see attached picture!). All of our kids did a terrific job running/walking their 10 laps and many surpassed 16 (4 miles!). It was also great to see so many parents at the event – whether you came to cheer or volunteer for a specific job, your help and support was greatly appreciated. More thank yous to come and prizes to be awarded on Wednesday, November 13th.
