photo 3Students in Edison’s Art Club having been working on a mural in the cafeteria of the school to improve the space.  Last fall they began brainstorming and created a design that would eventually come to life on the walls.  The mural depicts silhouettes of various students with bold splashes of color in the background.  Lastly, a quote by Albert Einstein completes the piece, “When we all think alike no one thinks very much.” Students also worked on a small mosaic for Autism Awareness month in April that will be showcased in the entryway of the school. We are proud of their work and dedication!

Bus Stop Safety Reminders

busstopsafetyIt’s important to remind our students that when they are waiting at the bus stop, they should wait with someone and not be alone. As they are walking home from the bus stop, we encourage them to walk in groups so they are not alone. Students should never get into a car with someone they don’t know and they should always report any suspicious activity to an adult.  We want to keep our students safe and are asking for your help in talking with your children about these important bus stop safety reminders.
