ANNOUNCEMENTS SMMUSD 5th GRADE MARIACHI PROGRAM –24 Edison 5th Graders joined 20 5th graders from other SMMUSD schools to take part in this new program. The students had a fabulous first performance last Friday night at Edison. If you have a student entering either 4th or 5th grade who is interested in being part of SMMUSD’s growing new Mariachi progam, please go to www.smmariachi.com and register before May 31, 2019. This afterschool music program is free and most instruments are provided. The 2019-2020 5th grade Mariachi will meet Tuesdays after school at Edison from 3:30-4:30 pm. The Middle School Mariachi will meet Tuesdays at JAMS from 4:005:00 pm. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity; sign up early! If you have any challenge registering on-line, please see Yoly and she can assist you. MOVIE NIGHT: CARS 3 -- Friday, May 3rd the families of TK and Kindergarten invite all Edison families to a Movie Night Fundraiser with dinner available for purchase starting at 5:30 pm. The movie will start in the Edison Cafeteria at 6:30 pm. Feel free to bring children in PJs and to bring blankets and stuffed animals for this comfy, familyfriendly evening at school. RETURNING TO EDISION? If your TK – 4th grade student plans to return to Edison in 20192020, please return the response form to the office by Friday, May 3. If there is any information we should be aware of as we build classes for next year please write it on that form. Please do not wait until the end of the year to share concerns or confidential information because once we have created balanced classes it’s sometimes not possible to make changes.

MUSIC INFORMANCES FOR PRESCHOOL, TK, K, 1, AND 2 GRADES –On Monday, May 17 and/or Friday, May 20 our youngest music students will be giving year-end informances for families. Thanks to Maestra Jacqueline Fuentes and the classroom teachers for their wonderful work with Música en Español. These 30-minute performances will be held in Room 109 during your students’ regular music time.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK I hope that you all had a wonderful Spring Break! Staff and students came back energized and ready to make the final push for the important work that goes into finishing the end of the school year. As we start to wind this year down, it’s wonderful to have families on campus more often as we continue with fine arts performances. We’ve recently enjoyed 4th grade performances of their ballet folklórico lessons, and the first performance by the new 5th Grade Mariachi program. In May, our music programs and 5th grade ballroom dance program will be offering performances. Thanks to our Stretch Grant from the Santa Monica Education Foundation, we have a robust choral music program in Spanish for our youngest students. This ensures that all Edison students receive music instruction AND that helps support the development of Spanish language vocabulary, oral language skills, and cultural awareness. The children in this program are holding informances for families on May 17 and/or May 20 and we encourage you to come if you can for these 25-minute mini concerts. Each performance is held at the same time as the students’ regular music classes. Our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students are part of the district-funded SMMUSD music program. The 4th and 5th grade classes (instrumental or choral music) have set Tuesday evening, May 21 as their concert date – 4th grade at 6:30 pm and 5th grade at 7:30 pm in the Edison Cafeteria. Please mark your calendars and come. The 3rd grade general music classes will be setting their informance dates/times soon and will advise parents. Our Edison 5th grade students (along with all other 5th grade students in the district) have been participating in a 10-week Ballroom Dance class as part of their physical education class with Instructors from the Santa Monica College Dance Department. Please join us for their final performances on Friday, May 31 at 8:45 am in the Edison Cafetorium. In May we are also conducting year-end assessments at all grade levels to evaluate the progress students have made this year and help us report to you how your children have grown academically this year. 3rd, 4th and 5th graders are participating in State Testing May 6-17 with both the CAASPP in English and Math (and Science in 5th grade) and the CSA (the California Spanish Assessment in language arts). Please help by avoiding absences and late arrivals during this two-week window. All of our students are also participating in year-end individual reading and writing assessments (in Spanish in grades K and 1 and in both English in Spanish in grades 2-5). These are part of the multiple measures we use to celebrate successes, identify program strengths and weaknesses, and plan needed support for next year.

En mayo, nuestros programas de música y el programa de baile de salón de 5º grado estarán ofreciendo presentaciones. Gracias a nuestra Beca Estrecha de la Fundación de Educación, tenemos un programa robusto de música de coro en español para nuestros estudiantes más jóvenes.
