ANNOUNCEMENTS FAREWELL AND THANK YOU BELVETH! Belveth Marroquin, of Family Services of Santa Monica (FSSM) has been our school counselor for the last four years. She has supported many children and families, led multiple social skills and friendship groups, taught Cool Tools and other self-regulation and problem solving skills in many classrooms and been an integral part of our Edison community. She has truly loved our students and helped us be a better caring community for kids. She leaves us this week to assume a new position with UCLA and we will dearly miss her. If you'd like to say thank you and good luck, please pass by Cafecito on Wednesday morning and sign one of the cards for Belveth. BOX TOP CONTEST – Thank you to all those who turned in Box Tops to earn money for our school. Maestra Boxer’s class won the class party for the Box Top contest with 668 collected. Please keep collecting Box Tops! JOGATHON IS COMING! – The Edison Jogathon coming up on April 6. It’s time to start collecting pledges! Jogathon is fun, healthy and a major fundraiser for our school! It’s exciting to be back on our own campus this year. There are some new and exciting prizes -including a Jogathon backpack hangtag for all runners -- and raffles for different levels of fundraising - and the three top earners plus three students selected randomly from among all runners will participate in the fabulous limo lunch. This year the teacher whose class has the most COLLECTED pledges will win $100 Staples gift card for the classroom. PRIVACY AND STUDENT DATA – Please note that because of all the outcry about recent case ordering the release of student data in a Special Education case, the Court has reversed itself and will not release student information.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK: MARCH MADNESS! March is a short but very busy month. We have only 14 instructional days before we head off to Spring Break. But in addition to all the teaching and learning that goes on every day, we’ve have several other special and important things during those 14 days. We’ve been doing final orientations and applications for Kinder were due 3/7 and for our new PreK and TK programs were due 3/8. We have ten IEP (Individualized Education Plan) and seven SST (Student Success Team) meetings. Our teachers have been working in Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) to plan standards-based writing units, common formative assessments, and pre- and post-unit assessments and they have been subbed out a little bit to facilitate team planning. Our music enrichment program with Maestra Jacqueline has culminating concerts for Kindergartners, First Graders (3/14 rd at 8:30 am), Second Graders (3/11 at 6:00 pm) and the after-school 3 and th 4 grade music program (3/11 at 6:00 pm). In our PS Arts Theater program th with Maestra Martha, our 5 graders are doing last rehearsals for their th culminating 5 Grade Play which will be presented to parents on Thursday evening, March 17 (all are invited!) and to fellow students on Friday morning, March 18. The construction project has kept us busy too (as it has for several years!) – with the playground, landscaping, fencing, and the building housing the field restrooms being finished up. The perimeter fence along Kansas Avenue is going in and the permanent entrance gate on Kansas Avenue is now open in the morning (near the field restrooms). If all goes as planned, it should also be open for pick up in the afternoon after spring break. With the opening of that entrance, there’s now no reason that any children or parents should be entering campus through the parking lot gate. That gate will now be kept locked and students redirected to the Kansas Avenue gate. We’re also looking forward to our annual Noche de Cesar Chavez celebration this Friday, March 11 when we gather to celebrate the life and work of César Chávez. The ELAC and PTA Boards are collaborating to provide dinner for sale, we’ll report on the Corazon de Vida service nd project, and be treated to a concert of songs of peace and justice by our 2 grade students and the afterschool music program with Maestra Jacqueline Fuentes. Please come and join the celebration!

March 11 Noche de Cesar Chavez – 6:00 pm.

DEL ESCRITORIO DE LA DIRECTORA: EVENTOS DE MARZO Marzo es un mes ocupado en Edison. En adición a las enseñanzas diarias y aprendizaje llevándose a cabo en nuestros salones, estamos continuando trabajo de desarrollo profesional alrededor de escribir a las Normas Comunes Estatales, implementando unidades de escritura del Colegio de Maestros, y visitando a maestros usando el taller de escritores en la Escuela Primaria Roosevelt. Estamos continuando a trabajar en la Instrucción Guiada Cognitivamente en matemáticas y ayudando a los estudiantes aprender a navegar los deberes de presentación (problemas de matemáticas del mundo real y de múltiples partes). Acabamos de comenzar una segunda tanda de programas de intervención académica antes y después de clases en los grados K, 2, 3, 4 y 5. Gracias a Elizabeth Ipiña, Stefani Tovar, Vincent Alvares, Emma Casillas, Virginia Johanna Brown, Alexandra Brandoli y Geralyn Goodman por su trabajo con estas clases y a Aileen Salmaggi por guiar y supervisar los asesoramientos en las clases después de clases. Tenemos varios proyectos de 5º grado que llegan a su culminación este mes – Jóvenes Contando Cuentos, Mathletas, y la Obra de Quinto Grado. ¡El Gran Show de Jóvenes Contando Cuentos se llevará a cabo el miércoles, 11 de marzo a las 6:00 pm. Diez estudiantes de 5º grado (solicitantes elegidos por sorteo) han estado trabajando de 1:1 con escritores profesionales para producir obras originales cortas que se traerán a la vida trabajando con actores profesionales en la tarima de Edison. Todos son bien venidos a este evento maravilloso. La maestra de 5º grado Constanza Murcia ha estado entrenando a más de 20 voluntarios estudiantes de 5º grado a quienes les encantan las matemáticas para participar en la Competencia de Matemáticas de Culver City USD. Todos estos “mathletas” han estado entrenando para la competencia de matemáticas. ¡Buena Suerte! Los estudiantes de 5º grado también están trabajando con nuestra maestra de Artes de Teatro de PS Martha Ramírez Oropeza para ponerles los toques finales a su producción de teatro anual. Este año en el 26 de marzo de 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. ellos presentarán Cambia Todo Cambia una obra bilingüe mirando al teatro a través de las épocas. La obra incluye música y baile al igual que drama y es una producción sorprendente. Nuestro programa de teatro es patrocinado por la Visión para Éxito Estudiantil de SMMEF. ¡Por favor acompáñenos! Finalmente, nuestra observación anual de la vida y trabajo de César Chávez que se llevará a cabo el viernes, 20 de marzo a las 6:00 p.m. que presentará a nuestros estudiantes del 2º grado.
