We are the Majority Rally

rallyOn Thursday, April 28th, 23 members of Edison’s Jr. T.I. and SADD groups joined with PHS SADD to attend the “We Are the Majority” rally in Columbus. The rally was made up of over 1800 students from around the state whose goal was to show that teens who are making good choices and steering clear of alcohol and drugs are the majority, not the minority.  Students listened to speakers, were treated to a performance by the band “Truslow,” lunch from Donatos, and finished the day with a march of nearly a mile through downtown Columbus to the steps of the State House.  As this group of young leaders chanted and marched up the street, they were met with applause, horn honking, and picture taking from the adults who stopped along the street to see what was happening and provide encouragement.

Edison’s Annual Poetry Coffee House

20160414_144336The students and teachers at Edison Middle School take April’s National Poetry Month very seriously.  They take it so seriously, in fact, that they transformed a classroom into a Poetry Coffee House—complete with a student-created backdrop, lava lights, and treats.  The entire seventh grade attended the “Coffee House” to share original poems with one another.
In the tradition of the “Beatniks” of the 1950’s, students were encouraged to replace conventional applause with snapping and shouts of, “Cool, Daddy-O!” Also, following the “Beatnik” style of dress, everyone—including teachers and guests, were asked to dress in black.  This practice allows the audience to focus on the words of the poet presenting, rather than becoming distracted by an outward appearance.
