ANNOUNCEMENTS NOCHE DE CESAR CHAVEZ –Save the date for Friday, March 11 when we gather to celebrate the life and work of nd César Chávez, featuring the 2 grade students and the afterschool music program with Maestra Jacqueline Fuentes. APPLICATIONS FOR KINDER 2016-2017 are due by March 7. If you have a younger child ready for Kinder next year (5 years old on or before September 1, 2016) make sure you have turned in your application by March 7 – after that, there is no sibling preference for admission. APPLICATIONS FOR DUAL IMMERSION TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN (children born between 9/2/11 and 12/2/11) and DUAL IMMERSION PRESCHOOL (children born between 12/3/11 and 9/2/13) are due March 8. There will be a language-based lottery for both programs. Applications are available in the office. SPRING CONCERTS -- Kindergarteners will sing for their families on Monday, March 7 at 8:30 am. First Graders will sing on Monday, March 14 at 8:30 am. EDISON LOST AND FOUND – Please check the Lost and Found for your child’s missing jackets, lunchboxes, water bottles, umbrellas and plastic lunch containers. The lunch containers are going to be tossed at the end of this week as many contain food and food waste – so come before Friday if your child is missing those items. We have dozens and dozens of jackets and sweaters. So please come, take a look and pick up missing items! THANKS LIBRARY HELPERS! - We are so appreciative of the many parents who have spent time helping Carol prepare new books for circulation! You make a big difference. If you can give us an hour or two in the library, contact Carol at 310 828-0335 ext 61-310.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK: TOGETHER WE CAN! It’s the time of the year when the Edison Parent Teacher Association (PTA) begins to work to identify leadership for the next year. So, with next week’s packet, you’ll see a flyer from the PTA Nominations Committee asking for your suggestions of individuals who the Committee should talk to about interest and availability for a Board position. You can also suggest yourself – and we hope you will! I’d like to add my personal request that all parents think ahead to next year and identify some ways that you can be involved as a parent volunteer. We can do so much more for our students when we all pitch in and do a little. And we build a stronger and more representative community when we’re all at the table – Spanish speakers, English speakers, bilinguals, mothers, fathers, grandparents, parents who work outside the home and those work from home or are home raising kids, etc. Our diverse experiences, cultures, ideas, and skills are all needed to create the kind of place we want for our children to thrive and grow. Simply put, everyone has something important to share! Each year when the Nominating Committee starts approaching parents to serve on the PTA Board, people tell me things like, “Ask me to do anything but go to a meeting!” or “I’m just not a PTA parent.” But so many of the things that we have come to think of as important parts of Edison are organized by parents through the PTA. And while being a PTA Board member does involve going to a monthly business meeting, most of the work is done in smaller teams of people working together. PTA is different groups of parents working together to prepare the telephone directory, host a welcome picnic for new Kindergarten families, oversee the Corazon de Vida project, or organize Book Fairs, the Fall Festival, the Valentines Dance, Jogathon, fundraising sales, raffles, Noche de César Chávez and Movie Nights. PTA is people who set up Wednesday morning cafecito, organize and equip Room Representatives, run, school beautification projects, help organize assemblies and field trips, and design and sell school spirit wear. So, please consider what you can do and respond to the Nominations Committee with an offer to help in some capacity. If we all head for the door, and hope that someone else will step up, lots of important things will fall through the cracks. But when we have a big group of diverse volunteers we are so much better and stronger – and so are the programs that we can offer to our amazing Edison students!

Noche de César Chávez– Aparten la fecha para el viernes, 11 de marzo cuando nos reunimos para celebrar la vida y trabajo de César Chávez, presentando a los estudiantes de 2º grado y al programa de música después de clases con Maestra Jacqueline Fuentes. Noche de César Chávez - El viernes, 11 de marzo nos reuniremos para celebrar la vida y trabajo de César Chávez. Esta noche también presentará un concierto de nuestros estudiantes de 2º grado y el programa de música después de clases con Maestra Jacqueline Fuentes. Solicitudes para Kindergarten 2016 -2017– Deben ser entregadas antes del 7 de marzo. Si ustedes tienen un hijo menor listo para el Kindergarten el año que viene (cumple 5 años antes del 1 de septiembre, 2016) asegúrense de completar la solicitud. Los hermanitos solamente tienen prioridad si entregan las solicitudes antes del 7 de marzo – después de eso, no hay preferencia de hermanitos para admisión. Kindergarten Transicional y Prescolar de Doble Inmersión – Si ustedes tienen un hijo/a que nació entre el 9/2/11 y el 12/2/11 y están buscando un comienzo temprano a doble inmersión de 90-10, pueden estar interesados en Kindergarten Transicional (TK) que se abrirá en Edison el próximo año. Después de un año en un programa de TK, su hijo/a se registra a Kindergarten. Si su hijo/a nació entre 12/03/11 y 09/02/13 y les gustaría una experiencia Prescolar de Doble Inmersión, su hijo/a puede ser elegible para el programa nuevo de Prescolar en Edison este otoño. La preferencia se les dará a los niños mayores. Tendremos un sorteo basado en idiomas para ambos programas. Hay solicitudes disponibles en la oficina. CONCIERTOS DE PRIMAVERA - los de Kindergarten cantarán para sus familias el lunes, 7 de marzo a las 8:30 a.m. Los de 1º grado cantarán el lunes, 14 de marzo a las 8:30 a.m. EDISON PERDIDO Y ENCONTRADO - Por Favor revisen lo Perdido y Encontrado y busquen chamarras, loncheras, botellas de agua, paraguas y trastes de almuerzo de plástico perdidos. Los trastes de almuerzo se tirarán a la basura al fin de esta semana porque muchos pueden tener comida y desecho de comida – así es que vengan antes del viernes si a su hijo/a le faltan estas cosas. Tenemos docenas y docenas de chamarras y suéteres. ¡Entonces por favor vengan, miren y recojan sus cosas perdidas!

Gracias Ayudantes de la Biblioteca ¡Estamos muy agradecidos con todos los padres quienes han pasado tiempo ayudando a Carol a preparar libros nuevos para circulación! Ustedes pueden hacer una diferencia. Si pueden darnos una hora o dos en la biblioteca, comuníquense con Carol al 310 828-0335 extensión 61-310

DEL ESCRITORIO DE LA DIRECTORA: GRATITUD ¡JUNTOS PODEMOS! Es ese tiempo del año cuando la Asociación de Padres y Maestros (PTA) de Edison comienza a trabajar para identificar liderazgo para el próximo año. Entonces, con el paquete de la semana que viene, mirarán un volante del Comité de Nominaciones de la PTA pidiendo sus sugerencias de personas con quienes el comité se de comunicar para hablar sobre interés y disponibilidad para un puesto en la Mesa Directiva. ¡Ustedes también se pueden sugerir a ustedes mismos – y esperamos que sí lo hagan! Me gustaría agregar mi pedido personal que todos los padres piensen hacia adelante al próximo año e identifiquen algunas maneras en las cuales pueden involucrarse cómo voluntarios. Podemos hacer mucho más para nuestros estudiantes cuando todos cooperamos y hacemos un poquito. Y creamos una comunidad más fuerte y más representante cuando todos estamos en la mesa – los que hablan español, los que hablan inglés, los bilingües, mamás, papás, abuelos, padres quienes trabajan fuera del hogar y los que trabajan desde el hogar criando niños, etc. Nuestras experiencias, culturas, ideas y habilidades diversas son necesarias para crear el tipo de lugar en el cual queremos que nuestros hijos resalten y crezcan. ¡Puesto simplemente, todos tienen algo importante que compartir! Cada año cuando el Comité de Nominaciones empieza a pedirles a padres que sirvan en la Mesa Directiva de la PTA la gente me dice cosas como “¡Pídanme lo que sea, pero no ir a una reunión!” o “Yo no soy un padre de PTA.” Pero tantas de las cosas que de las cuales hemos llegado a pensar como partes importantes de Edison son organizadas por padres por medio de la PTA. Y aunque ser un miembro de la Mesa Directiva sí incluye ir a una reunión mensual de negocios, la mayoría del trabajo se hace en equipos más pequeños de personas trabajando juntos. La PTA es diferentes grupos de padres trabajando juntos para preparar los directorios telefónicos, patrocinar un picnic de bienvenida para las familias nuevas de Kindergarten, coordinar el proyecto de Corazón de Vida, organizar Ferias de Libros, el Festival de Otoño, el Baile de San Valentín, la caminata, ventas de recaudaciones de fondos, rifas, noche de césar Chávez y Noches de Películas. La PTA es la gente quien prepara el cafecito los miércoles por las mañanas, organizan y equipan a los Representantes de Salones, coordinan proyectos de embellecimiento, ayudan a organizar asambleas y paseos, y diseñan y venden la ropa de espíritu escolar. Así es que, por favor consideren lo que ustedes puedan hacer y respondan al Comité de nominaciones con una oferte de ayudar en alguna capacidad. Si todos corremos hacia la puerta, y esperamos que alguien más tome las riendas, muchas cosas importantes se perderían. ¡Pero cuando tenemos un grupo grande de voluntarios diversos somos mucho mejor y más fuertes – y también lo son los programas que ofrecemos a nuestros estudiantes sorprendentes de Edison!
