Meetings are Thursday mornings from 8:15-9:45 am at Edison on: September 10, 17, 24 October 1, 8, 22, and 29. Contact Yoly Gutierrez at ext. 61-312 or email her at ygutierrez@smmusd.org if you would like to grab one of the last spots. Volunteers Needed – Would you be interested in helping improve our campus recycling programs? Or would you like to help increase safety at pick up or drop off? Then we need you asap! Please contact either Principal Lori Orum (61-302) or Community Liaison Yoly Gutierrez (61-312). Volunteer Training –If you are a new volunteer or if your volunteer status has expired, you must submit an application, come to a training, submit a negative TB test or chest x-ray, and consent to a Meghan’s List check in order to volunteer with students at Edison. This year’s Volunteer Trainings will be held: Friday, September 4 at 8:30 am or Thursday, September 10 at 6:30 pm. If you don’t know if it’s time to re-apply, check with Yoly. Reflective Parenting Workshop – This 10-week workshop in English on Tuesday mornings 9:00-10:30 am at Family Services of Santa Monica. This workshop aims to help parents learn about temperament, discipline, and emotional regulation, and develop an understanding of the thoughts and feelings that underlie your interactions with your child. The workshop is available without charge to Edison families but spaces are limited. See the flyer in this Wednesday’s packet. The workshops will be offered in Spanish at Edison in January. PTA Executive Board Meeting – Wednesday 9/2, 6:00 p.m. - Community Room.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK: LOTS TO CELEBRATE! It was wonderful to see so many parents at our six grade level meetings and at Edison’s Back to School Nights. If you missed either the grade level meetings or the parent meeting at Back to School Night, we’ll have the slides up on the Edison website next week (www.edison.smmusd.org). As I shared at Back to School Night, Edison has lots to celebrate this year. This is our 29th year as a dual immersion school. We again have resources (through SMMUSD, SMMEF, our Title I grant, and our Edison PTA) for instructional assistants, coaches and intervention teachers, great education technology and on-line programs to differentiate and extend learning. We have a robust arts (theater, music, visual arts and dance) program for our students, some new equipment and teaching materials, and a beautiful space in which our students learn. We are nearing the end of an ambitious construction project that gave Edison the only completely new school in SMMUSD. While we loved our little escuelita, the buildings were old and all the systems were in need of major repairs. Although it has been a challenge to occupy a construction site while the new school was built, today we are nearly at the end of the journey and have an amazing facility! We have the space we need to offer important programs, an abundance of modern technology tools, heating and cooling systems that now meet our needs, and a smaller carbon footprint. And each week more of the play fields are finished and turned over to us, with all construction projected to be finished by the end of October. We also celebrate the strong academic progress our students made again last year, including our 4th consecutive year as a California Business for Education Excellence Honor Roll School. Preliminary data from State achievement tests indicate that Edison students also did very well on the State exams. We’ll be sharing this data and school improvement plans and soliciting parent input for areas for growth at a Schoolwide Title I parent meeting on September 30. Come be part of the conversation as we set our sights ever higher!

DEL ESCRITORIO DE LA DIRECTORA: ¡MUCHO QUE CELEBRAR! Fue maravilloso ver a tantos padres en nuestras seis reuniones de niveles de grados y en las Noches de Regreso a la Escuela. Si se perdieron las reuniones de los niveles de grados o la reunión de padres en la Noche de Regreso a la Escuela, tendremos las presentaciones en la página de internet de Edison la próxima semana (www.edison.smmusd.org). Como compartí en la Noche de Regreso a la Escuela, Edison tiene mucho que celebrar este año. Este es nuestro 29º año como escuela de doble inmersión. De nuevo tenemos recursos (por medio de SMMUSD, SMMEF, y nuestra beca de Título I, y nuestra PTA de Edison) para asistentes de instrucción, entrenadores y maestros de intervención, gran tecnología educacional y programas en internet para diferenciar y extender el aprendizaje. Tenemos un programa robusto de artes (teatro, música, artes visuales y baile) para nuestros estudiantes, equipo nuevo y materiales de enseñanza, y un espacio hermoso en cual los estudiantes aprenden. Estamos llegando al final del proyecto ambicioso de construcción que le dio a Edison la única escuela completamente nueva en SMMUSD. Aunque amábamos a nuestra escuelita, los edificios estaban viejos y todos los sistemas necesitaban reparos mayores. ¡Aunque ha sido un reto ocupar un sitio de construcción mientras la escuela nueva se construía, hoy casi estamos en el final de la jornada y tenemos una instalación sorprendente! Tenemos el espacio necesario para ofrecer programas importantes, una abundancia de herramientas de tecnología moderna, sistemas de calefacción y enfriamiento que cumplen con nuestras necesidades, y una huella de carbón menor. Y cada semana más de los patios de juego se terminan y no los entregan, con la construcción proyectada para ser terminada para el fin de octubre. También celebramos el progreso académico fuerte que nuestros estudiantes hicieron el año pasado, incluyendo el 4º año consecutivo como una Escuela en la Lista de Honor de Negocios de California para Excelencia Educativa. Los datos preliminares de los exámenes de rendimiento del Estado indican que los estudiantes de Edison también hicieron muy bien en los exámenes estatales. Compartiremos estos datos y los planes de mejoramiento escolar y buscaremos las opiniones de padres para áreas de crecimiento en una reunión de Título I para todos los padres el 30 de septiembre. ¡Vengan y sean parte de la conversación mientras fijamos nuestras metas aún más altas!

Are you in?

In these pages, we invite you to learn more about education funding in our school district and encourage you to support an outstanding education for all our students.

Dear Community Member,

What makes an excellent education? Is it one with a rigorous focus on academics? A vibrant, engaging arts program? Memorable field trips and experiential learning? In the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District, it’s all of that and more, thanks to a critical partnership between the school district, our PTAs and the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation (SMMEF). While state funding for education is improving, we still have a long way to go. Funding is well below pre-2009 levels and, at projected rates, will not reach pre-recession levels until 2020. Per capita, students in California receive just half the funding of top-funded states, including New York, New Jersey and Vermont. In Santa Monica and Malibu, we rely on our generous communities to provide financial support for extraordinary staff and programs above and beyond what the state provides for our children. Our students learn to express themselves through art and shine in internationally recognized music programs that start in the primary grades. They reach new frontiers in science, technology, engineering and math programs preparing them to work in an ever-more technical world. They excel in athletics while learning the value of teamwork. They are taught and supported by a group of educators, parents and community members dedicated to their advancement. While public education is free, a great public education requires everyone’s commitment. We look forward to having your support so SMMUSD can provide the best public education possible for each and every student we serve. Thank you, Sincerely,

Sandra Lyon

Superintendent Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District

Linda Greenberg

Executive Director Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation

SMMUSD + SMMEF + PTA = The Best Education for Your Child

SMMUSD

The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District serves the diverse coastal communities of Santa Monica and Malibu in Los Angeles County. SMMUSD educates 11,300 students in transitional kindergarten through 12th grade in 10 elementary schools, two middle schools, one 9-12 high school, one 6-12 high school, a continuation high school and a K-8 alternative school. The district is also home to 11 early childhood education centers and an adult school. SMMUSD is a high-performing district with academic scores consistently ranking in the top tier of districts in Los Angeles and the State of California.

SMMEF

The Santa Monica-Malibu Edu­cation Foundation is the nonprofit fundraising and lead philanthropic partner for the school district. Established in 1982 by a dedicated group of parents, community leaders, and local business owners, SMMEF provides funding to enhance and support the curriculum of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District. SMMEF’s mission is to engage the community to invest in a vibrant educational experience for all students in the Santa Monica and Malibu public schools. In the last two years, SMMEF has provided more than $6 million in funding to SMMUSD schools. SMMEF raises funds annually to provide staff and programs that distinguish SMMUSD from many other school districts, including instructional assistants to facilitate small group learning, elementary arts education, and enrichment grants for all 16 schools in the district. SMMEF endowments also support arts programs in middle and high schools, supplemental library funding, instruments, and music education for socio-economically disadvantaged students.

PTA

With nearly 7,000 members in schools across the district, SMMUSD’s 16 Parent Teacher Associations advocate for the education, health and welfare of all children and families. PTA facilitates communication between school and home and organizes informative parent meetings and fun family events. PTA also mobilizes volunteers around local and state school funding measures and legislative issues that impact students. In addition, PTA raises funds for a variety of needs at each school site, ranging from books and supplies to field trips and technology. PTA also works closely with the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation to support its districtwide fundraising efforts that benefit every student in every SMMUSD school.


Partners in Funding: We Are All In

The district, SMMEF and PTAs each have an important role to play in school funding. While SMMUSD funds most of the system through federal, state and local revenue, it is only with additional resources from SMMEF and PTA that the district is able to create an environment where students can thrive.
