Latest News for Edison Middle School

Palace Theatre Concert Update

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.

Students Donate to Daniel J. Patron Memorial Scholarship in Honor of Veterans’ Day

photoEdison Middle School is proud to announce an $1100 donation to the Daniel J. Patron Memorial Scholarship fund.  Students were able to purchase red, white, and blue chain links in Academic Assist (AA)  to commemorate Veterans’ Day. Congratulations to Mrs. Budd’s AA (pictured)  for raising the most money.

The scholarship was established in honor of the sacrifice of United States Marine Corps Sgt. Daniel J. Patron, a 2003 graduate of Perry High School. Danny gave his life in August of 2011 defending the freedom of others. He served with distinction, exemplifying courage and honor as an Explosive Ordinance Disposal specialist diffusing road-side bombs in Afghanistan.
