PARENT CHORUS -- Come and lift your voice in song – in Spanish and English! Meet some other Edison families and learn more about the cultures of the Americas by learning some great love songs in Spanish and English! No expertise necessary! As a Community Integration initiative, our PTA is piloting this Parent Chorus, giving Edison families the opportunity to work with our wonderful Spanish Music Teacher Jacqueline Fuentes and learn language and culture together through song. Fridays from 8:30-9:30 am November 18 through February 17. Linger a little on Friday mornings and start your day with a song and a smile! Meet in Room 109.

CONGRATULATIONS SCHOOL SMARTS GRADUATES! Congratulations to our twenty-one 201617 School Smarts Academy Graduates! These parents have been developing their “smarts” about schools and learning how to be more effective advocates for children. School Smarts is also a leadership development program. We hope to see many of these wonderful parent graduates taking their places as Edison leaders in future months and years. Thanks to Yoly Gutierrez for coordinating the program and to the different Edison and District staff who have served as guest speakers.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK: REFLECTIONS ON A BLUE RIBBON Last week Spanish Reading Teacher John Ellis and I traveled to Washington DC to attend the National Blue Ribbon Schools Ceremony. The California State Department of Education nominated Edison last spring as a high performing school and we were invited to apply for the National Blue Ribbon award. With support from former Superintendent Sandra Lyon and our Board of Education, Aileen Salmaggi (Literacy Coach), Elizabeth Ipiña (ELD Coach and Intervention Teacher), and I wrote the application. We detailed our dual language and arts-enhanced curriculum We explained our research-based instructional strategies, and shared strategies for professional development, collaboration, assessment, and parent engagement. After reviewing our application and test scores, the U.S. Department of Education chose Edison as one of only 279 public schools and 50 private institutions across the country this year to receive a National Blue Ribbon and honored us as a High Performing School! With this award we become one of only .5% of all US schools to be so recognized and we are now the third of SMMUSD’s Blue Ribbon schools -- joining Will Rogers Learning Community (1996-97) and Lincoln Middle School (1999-2000). What the very diverse collection of Blue Ribbon Schools seem to share is an intentional use of best practices and a culture of continuous improvement. Blue Ribbon schools use student achievement data to refine instruction, have a problemsolving orientation that includes thinking outside the box, and have an ability to hyperfocus on what their school is capable of becoming. One speaker described this ability to “hypersee” as akin to Michelangelo’s assertion that he could see the statue inside the block of marble and that his job as a sculptor was to remove the parts of the marble that obstructed the view of the statue within. That resonated with us. We tend to see our students as future young adults attending college and upon graduation using their skills in both languages to unlock doors of opportunity for themselves and for others. And we’ve long seen our school as special community that could and should be an example of how dual immersion can close achievement gaps. Our achievement scores (overall and by subgroup) place us among the top scoring California public schools. All of our subgroups score at or above the level of the same subgroups within our high performing school district. Not only do Latino, low-income, and English learner students typically do better at Edison, but so do English speaking White students when compared to similar students districtwide. We still have work to do to finish closing achievement gaps, but we have a good road map of how to do so and the commitment to keep working toward that end. We returned home so very proud of our community, faculty, staff, parents, and students for what has been accomplished so far. And we returned energized to keep working so every Edison student succeeds. We’re planning a celebration in December. Stay tuned for details and come celebrate with us!

Gracias a Yoly Gutiérrez por coordinar el programa y a los diferentes miembros del personal de Edison y del Distrito quienes sirvieron como oradores invitados.

DEL ESCRITORIO DE LA DIRECTORA: REFLEJOS SOBRE UN LISTÓN AZUL La semana pasada el Maestro de Lectura en Español John Ellis y yo viajamos a Washington DC para asistir a la Ceremonia Nacional de Escuelas de Listón Azul. El Departamento de Educación del Estado de California nominó a Edison la primavera pasada como una escuela de alto rendimiento y no invitaron a entregar una solicitud para el reconocimiento Nacional del Listón Azul. Con el apoyo del Superintendente anterior Sandra Lyon y nuestra Meza Directiva de Educación, Aileen Salmaggi (Entrenadora de Alfabetismo), Elizabeth Ipiña (Entrenadora del Desarrollo del Idioma Inglés y Maestra de Intervención), y yo escribimos la solicitud. Detallamos nuestro curso de estudios de doble idiomas y enriquecido por las artes. Explicamos nuestras estrategias de instrucción basadas en investigaciones, compartimos estrategias para desarrollo profesional, colaboración, asesoramiento, e involucramiento de padres. ¡Después de revisar nuestra solicitud y resultados de exámenes, el Departamento de Educación de los Estados Unidos eligió a Edison como una de solamente 279 escuelas públicas y 50 instituciones privadas en todo el país este año para recibir el Listón Azul Nacional y ser honrados como una Escuela de Alto Rendimiento! Con este reconocimiento nos convertimos en una de solamente el .5% de todas las escuelas de los Estados Unidos que sea reconocida y ahora somos la tercera de las Escuelas de listón Azul de SMMUSD – uniéndonos a Will Roger Comunidad de Aprendizaje (1996-97) y la Escuela Media Lincoln (1999-2000). Lo que la colección muy diversa de Escuelas de Listón Azul parece compartir es el uso intencional de las mejores prácticas y una cultura de mejoramiento continuo. Escuelas de Listón Azul usan los datos de rendimiento estudiantil para refinar la instrucción, tener una orientación para resolver problemas que incluye pensar fuera de lo común, y tener una habilidad de “super-enfocar” en lo que su escuela es capaz de convertirse. Uno de los oradores describieron esta habilidad para “super-ver” como parecido en la afirmación de Michelangelo que él podía ver la estatua dentro del bloque de mármol y que su trabajo como escultor fue quitar las partes del mármol que obstruían la vista de la estatua dentro. Eso resonó con nosotros. Solemos ver a nuestros estudiantes como futuros adultos asistiendo la universidad y en cuanto se gradúen usando sus habilidades en ambos idiomas para abrir puertas de oportunidades para ellos mismos y para otros. Y por mucho tiempo hemos mirado a nuestra escuela cómo una comunidad especial que puede y debe ser un ejemplo de cómo la doble inmersión puede cerrar las diferencias de rendimiento. Nuestras calificaciones de rendimiento (sobre todo y por grupos) no ponen entre las escuelas públicas de California con las calificaciones más altas. Todos nuestros grupos calificaron al nivel o más alto de los mismos grupos dentro de nuestro distrito de alto rendimiento. No solamente es que los estudiantes Latinos, de bajos recursos, y estudiantes aprendiendo inglés típicamente hacen mejor en Edison, pero también lo hacen los estudiantes blancos quienes hablan inglés cuando son comparados a estudiantes semejantes a través del distrito. Todavía tenemos algo de trabajo que hacer para terminar de cerrar las diferencias de rendimiento, pero tenemos un buen mapa de caminos de cómo hacerlo y el compromiso de seguir trabajando hacia eso al final. Regresamos a casa muy orgullosos de nuestra comunidad, maestros, personal, padres y estudiantes por lo que se ha logrado hasta ahora. Y regrésame con energía para seguir trabajando para que cada estudiante de Edison tenga éxito. Estamos planeando una celebración en diciembre. ¡Manténganse sintonizados para más detalles y vengan a celebrar con nosotros!

24 – 25 de noviembre Días de Acción de Gracias No Hay Clases


November 14, 2016 Dear Edison Families, In the aftermath of a bitter presidential campaign that included insults about Latinos, vows of mass deportations, and vulgar slurs against women, many of our students are feeling scared and uneasy. They are seeing visual images of the KKK and American Nazi party celebrating the election results with swastikas, Confederate flags and the slogan “Make America White Again” and they hear reports of hate speech and hate crimes. We teach our students that bullying and hate speech are unacceptable, but they have seen lots of evidence to the contrary. The rhetoric and images have been very personal and intimidating for many of our Edison students and families. We are a community that includes many immigrants, Latinos and other children of color. We have members of our community who are LGBTQ, people with disabilities, and people of many different faiths. We are also a selfselected community of families who believe in the values of diversity and learning each other’s languages and cultures. In the days after the election we’ve heard students tell us that they are afraid of family members being deported and that they’re not sure that America is safe for people like them. One enterprising youngster even said that if the president-elect doesn’t have to follow rules and not use bad words, why should kids have to do that?! We are supporting students with information, reassurance, and opportunities to talk about feelings and fears. Most of our students are too young to fully understand about what a president can and cannot do, about checks and balances in the system, or how it is possible for one candidate to win the popular vote and yet lose the election. Students also have to learn that sometimes in a democracy their candidate will not prevail, so we try to find common ground and go on together. Our teachers will continue to teach these important civics lessons in age-appropriate ways. We will also continue to teach that bigotry is not a democratic value and that it is essential to treat each other with respect and stand up for one another. Teachers hold regular class meetings using Caring School Community and Olweus Anti-Bullying Program materials to provide safe spaces for children to talk about challenges and fears AND practice the compassionate and fair behaviors that reflect our shared values. We also have counseling resources for students who are suffering with anxious and fearful feelings resulting from the election – just let us know if your child is struggling. If you’re wondering about how to respond to some of your children’s post-election questions or anxieties, I’ve listed some links to a few resources below. And because it’s hard to reassure our children when we feel anxious and uncertain ourselves, we’re convening a gathering for parents on November 30 at 8:30 am in the cafeteria. Flight attendants always say “in the event of an emergency, put on your own oxygen masks first before trying to assist others.” Let’s “check our own oxygen masks” together on November 30 as we talk about strategies to support children and engage in some of the mutual support that we need to best help our kids. Join us or message me if you’d like to connect in some other way. With respect,

14 de noviembre, 2016 Estimadas Familias de Edison, En los efectos después de una campaña presidencial desabrida que incluyó insultos sobre Latinos, promesas de enormes deportaciones, y calumnias vulgares en contra de mujeres, muchos de nuestros estudiantes se están sintiendo temerosos y nerviosos. Están mirando imágenes visuales del KKK y el partido Nazi Americano celebrando los resultados de la elección con suásticas, banderas de la Confederación y el lema de “Hacer América Blanca de Nuevo” y escuchan reportes de discursos de odio y crímenes de odio. Les enseñamos a nuestros estudiantes que la intimidación y discursos de odio son inaceptables, pero han visto mucha evidencia de lo contrario. La retórica e imágenes han sido muy personales e intimidantes para muchos de nuestros estudiantes y familias de Edison. Somos una comunidad que incluye a muchos inmigrantes, Latinos y otros niños de color. Tenemos miembros de nuestra comunidad quienes son LGBTQ, personas con discapacidades, y personas de diferentes fes. Somos una comunidad auto elegida de familias quienes creen en los valores de diversidad y aprendiendo el idioma y cultura unos de otros. En los días después de la elección hemos escuchado a estudiantes decirnos que temen que los miembros de su familia sean deportados y que no están seguros de que América sea un lugar seguro para gente como ellos. Un niño emprendedor dijo que si el presidente-electo no tiene que seguir las reglas y no tiene que no usar malas palabras, entonces ¿por qué los niños tienen que hacerlo? Estamos apoyando a los estudiantes con información, seguridad, y oportunidades para hablar sobre sentimientos y temores. La mayoría de nuestros estudiantes están muy jóvenes para comprender completamente sobre lo que el presidente pueda y no pueda hacer, sobre chequeos y balances en el sistema, o cómo es posible que un candidato gane el voto popular, y aún pierda la elección. Los estudiantes también tienen que aprender que a veces en una democracia su candidato no prevalecerá, así es que tratamos de encontrar tierra común y continuar juntos. Nuestros maestros, continúan enseñando estas lecciones importantes cívicas en maneras apropiadas a las edades. También continuaremos a enseñar que la intolerancia no es un valor democrático y que es esencial para tratarnos unos a otros con respeto y defendernos unos a otros. Los maestros tienen reuniones de clases regulares usando materiales de Comunidad Escolar Cariñosa y el programa En Contra de la Intimidación Olweus para proveer espacios seguros para nuestros que nuestros niños hablen sobre retos y temores Y practicar los comportamientos compasivos y justos que reflejan nuestros valores compartidos. También tenemos recursos para los estudiantes quienes están sufriendo con sentimientos ansiosos y temerosos resultando de la elección – solo avísenos si su hijo/a está batallando. Si se están preguntando sobre cómo responder a algunas de las preguntas o ansiedades después de la elección, he anotado algunos enlaces a unos recursos abajo. Y porque es difícil asegurar a nuestros niños cuando nosotros nos sentimos inseguros de nosotros mismos, nos reuniremos con los padres el 30 de noviembre a las 8:30 am en la cafetería. Las aeromozas siempre dicen “en caso de una emergencia, primero póngase su propia máscara de oxígeno antes de tratar de ayudar a otros.” Hay que “revisar nuestras propias máscaras de oxígeno” juntos en el 30 de noviembre mientras hablamos sobre estrategias para apoyar a los niños y entrar en apoyo mutuo que necesitamos para mejor ayudar a nuestros niños. Acompáñenos o mándenme un mensaje si les gustaría conectarse en alguna otra manera. Con respeto,
