Our April Family Newsletter is here! That amazing Edison K8 teaching staff shared so many great pictures this month. Check out what we were up to in April!
The 5Rs were certainly in action at the Edison K8 today! Nine 4th and 5th grade students asked Mr. Griffin if they could spend their lunch and recess helping to clean up the outdoor classroom to make it ready for spring! We admire their respect, responsibility, rigor, righteousness, and resourcefulness.
To our Edison K8 families- if you are interested in volunteering in the outdoor classroom & garden this spring or summer, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
