The Edison Middle School Drama Club would like to invite to our production of “The Fearsome Pirate Frank,” Friday, November 22nd and Saturday, November 23rd at 7:00 pm. Our 43 member cast and crew have worked diligently over the past 8 weeks to put together this production and are looking forward to performing it for a live audience. The show revolves around an actor named Frank who has made a career out of portraying a pirate on stage. Frank and his band of pirate actors are kidnapped by a REAL pirate also named Frank, and HER band of pirate shipmates. Who will win out as the real Fearsome Pirate Frank? This production checks all the boxes: comedy, drama, pirates, mermaids, and even zombies! Tickets are $5 and will be sold at the door (no pre-sale). Click here for a cast/crew list so you can see which students are involved. Special thanks to former Drama Club members Cameron Beard and Daniel Shamp for their sound system expertise.

Edison Middle School is excited to tell everyone about our Panther Pause Lab, also known as the S.M.A.R.T. Lab. S.M.A.R.T. stands for Stress Management and Resiliency Training. We recognize that many of our students experience stress, trauma, or challenges that impact their ability to make the most of their opportunity to learn. This intervention is designed to help build the social-emotional skills that enable students to be successful in the classroom setting. The Panther Pause/S.M.A.R.T. Lab is located in room 112. This is our first year having the Panther Pause Lab and listed below are some details:
- All students will receive a classroom orientation to better understand the Lab and managing stress.
- Staff will also be introduced and oriented to the Lab.
- The Lab will be accessible to all students and staff, but there will be times when it is closed for targeted interventions for smaller groups of students.
- We will offer groups for students who would benefit from the Lab.
- We will be meeting with individual students as they need support with stress management in the Lab.
If you have any additional questions about the Lab, please contact your student’s school counselor for more information.
