Latest News for Edison Middle School
Edison Middle School is sponsoring a blood drive. The current blood supply is critically low due to the recent severe weather. If you would kindly help by donating not only will you help save lives in this time of need, our school will also receive a fundraising grant. The Blood Drive will be open at Edison from 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM on Thursday, January 9th.

Due to inclement weather, Perry Local Schools will be closed on Monday, January 6th and Tuesday, January 7th.
Joseph Schueller and Madison Violand were selected to sing this year with the Cleveland Orchestra Children’s Chorus. Under the direction of Dr. Ann Usher, they have performed at Severance Hall with the Cleveland Orchestra and the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus. They will also be performing on December 21st and 22nd at Severance Hall. The Children’s Chorus consists of approximately 45 children between grades 5-8 from all around the Cleveland area. Joseph has also been accepted to sing in the ACDA Central Division Middle School Boys’ Honor Choir. Joseph was one of 50 boys to be selected from across four states. This choir will perform as part of a national Choral Music conference in February in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Unfortunately, we have decided not to reschedule the Palace Concert. There are several reasons for this including:
- The Palace is not available until December 23rd
- Too many other events conflicting between Edison and Perry High School
- No available space
- Renting another hall will cost money: The boosters have already had to pay $2000 to the Palace which is non refundable.
There are just too many conflicts to make this work.
The Perry Band Boosters will honor your Palace tickets at our annual Bands In The Round concert. Just hang on to you your ticket, and it will gain you admission to that event for free.
If you need a refund, send in your ticket(s) with a pre addressed/stamped envelope. We will get a check to you.
Of course, we will also gladly accept your donation if you choose neither option as the band program has lost money on this event. Our Palace rental fee was $2000, and our recording fees are usually $1000.
