ANNOUNCEMENTS BOARD GAMES AND/OR DVDS – Our students have really been enjoying playing board games, card games and simple puzzles in the morning before school. If you have some childappropriate, simple-to-use games that your family is no longer using, please consider donating them to Edison. We can also use DVDs with children’s movies (Rated G) because there’s nothing quite like a movie when it’s too wet to go outside for recess! SHOPPING FOR EDISON -- The Edison Novica promotion will run through the end of the year, so if you have still have holiday gifts to purchase, check out the collection from artisans around the world at https://www.novica.com/edison/ and they will donate 40% of what you spend to our PTA. APPLICATIONS FOR NEXT YEAR – One last call for sibling applications! The due dates for sibling applicatoins to enter Pre-K, TK or K have passed. However, if you somehow missed this deadline but still hope to enroll a younger child in your family in Edison next August, you must let us know immediately and submit an application to move from Pre-K or TK to Kindergarten or from Pre-K to TK. PARENT CHORUS – If you were inspired at the Música en Español informances this week, join us for the Edison Parent Chorus! Chorus will begin meeting again on February 3 --Friday mornings from 8:30-9:30 am in Room 109. This program is funded by the Edison PTA to help build community. There is no charge and everyone is welcome. Come and learn some songs in English and Spanish and start your day with a song!

MUSIC IN SPANISH IS ON HIATUS UNTIL JANUARY 30.

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK: HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! Last week, on a cold and rainy night, over 100 of us gathered for a wonderful family potluck and art night. Thanks to our partners at P.S. Arts for teaching us about some fascinating artists and guiding us in making art in their styles. Appreciation as well to our Edison PTA for organizing the potluck and creating a warm and festive environment for us to gather and enjoy a little fellowship at the end of the year. This week we are holding “informances” for parents and families of our TK, st nd K, 1 , and 2 grade students. We invite you to join us for your child’s Spanish music class with Maestra Jacqueline and hear what they’ve been learning this fall. When you’re on campus this week, it’s a great time to pass by the Lost and Found. You will see quite a large collection of sweatshirts, jackets, and lunch boxes. Please look through the racks and shelves and reclaim lost items – because the children will surely need them in the cold and rainy winter months! Friday this week is a Minimum Day – with dismissal at 12:25 pm for TK and K, at 1:35 pm for grades 1 and 2, and at 1:50 pm for grades 3-4-5. School will be closed for two weeks for the winter holidays and will resume on Monday, January 9, 2017. Our best wishes for a happy holiday season with your family and a warm start to the new year. It’s a great time to talk with your children about your family holiday beliefs and traditions – and make some memories together. Of course we can’t adjourn for two weeks without pointing out that books make wonderful holiday gifts! We hope you will encourage your children to read whenever they can during the winter break. Edison’s on-line learning programs Raz Kids, Kid-Biz, ST Math, and Reflex Math are available during the winter break if your children have time to use them. When we return in January, we’re looking forward to a visit from some of the young people who have grown up in the orphanages of Corazon de Vida in Baja California. Each year we gather donations of supplies and books for the orphanages and many Edison families have taken the bus to Baja California to deliver the supplies and visit with the children. It’s a wonderful experience for our students to hear from these young adults who have had very different and challenging childhoods and are now in college. If you’d like to be part of one of these exchanges, linger a little on the Tuesday morning of the first week back. We wish you all a warm and wonderful holiday season and peace and joy in the year to come! See you in 2017! January 9 First Day of School in 2017

JUEGOS DE MESA Y/O DVDS - Nuestros estudiantes realmente han disfrutado jugar juegos de mesa, juegos de barajas y rompe cabezas simples en la mañana antes de clases. Si ustedes tienen juegos apropiados para niños que sean simples de usar que su familia ya no use, por favor consideren donarlos a Edison. ¡También podemos usar DVDs con películas de niños (Clasificadas G) porque no hay nada como una película cuando está muy mojada para salir a recreo!

DEL ESCRITORIO DE LA DIRECTORA: ¡FELICES FIESTAS!! La semana pasada, en una noche fría y lluviosa, más de 100 de nosotros nos reunimos para una noche maravillosa familiar de convivio y arte. Gracias a nuestros socios en P.S. Arts por enseñarnos algo sobre algunos artistas fabulosos y guiándonos en hacer arte y sus estilos. Se les agradece también a nuestra PTA de Edison por organizar el convivio y crear un ambiente tierno y festivo para que nos reunamos y disfrutemos un poco compañerismo al fin del año. Esta semana tendremos “presentaciones informativas” para padres y familias de nuestros estudiantes en TK, K, 1º y 2º grado. Los invitamos acompañarnos para la clase de música en español de su hijo/a con Maestra Jacqueline y escuchen lo que han estado aprendiendo este otoño.

COMPRANDO PARA EDISON - La promoción de Cuando estén en la escuela esta semana, es un buen tiempo de pasar por lo Novica Edison correrá hasta el fin del año, así es que si todavía tienen regalos que comprar, revisen Perdido y Encontrado. Mirarán una gran colección de sudaderas, chamarras, y loncheras. Por favor miren entre los estantes y repisas y reclamen cosas perdidas – la colección de artesanos de alrededor del mundo ¡porque los niños los necesitarán de seguro en los meses fríos y lluviosos de invierno! en https://www.novica.com/edison/ y donarán 40% de lo que ustedes gasten a nuestra PTA. El viernes de esta semana es un Día Mínimo – con salida a las 12:25 pm SOLICITUDES PARA EL PRÓXIMO AÑO - ¡Ultima llamada para solicitudes para hermanitos! Las fechas de entrega para solicitudes de hermanitos para entrar a Preescolar, Kindergarten Transicional o Kindergarten han pasado. Sin embargo, si por algún motivo ustedes se perdieron la fecha límite pero todavía tienen la esperanza de registrar a su hijo/a menor en Edison el próximo agosto, ustedes nos deben avisar inmediatamente y entregar una solicitud para avanzar del Preescolar o Kindergarten Transicional a Kindergarten o de Preescolar a Kindergarten Transicional. CORO DE PADRES - ¡Si ustedes se inspiraron en las Presentaciones Informativas de Música en Español esta semana, acompáñenos para el Coro de Padres de Edison! El coro comenzará reunirse de nuevo el 3 de febrero – viernes por las mañanas de 8:30 – 9:30 am en el salón 109. Este programa es fundado por la PTA de Edison para crear comunidad. No hay cobro y todos son bienvenidos. ¡Vengan y aprendan algunas canciones en inglés y español y comiencen su día con una canción! MÚSICA EN ESPAÑOL ESTÁ EN VACACIONES HASTA EL 30 DE ENERO.

para TK y K, a la 1:35 para los grados 1 y 2, y a la 1:50 pm para los grados 3-4-5. La escuela estará cerrada por dos semanas por las fiestas de invierno y regresaremos el lunes, 9 de enero, 2017. Nuestros mejores deseos de una temporada de fiestas felices con su familia y un tierno comienzo del año nuevo. Es un gran tiempo para hablar con sus niños sobre sus creencias festivas y tradiciones – y juntos hagan algunas memorias. ¡Claro que no nos podemos despedirnos por dos semanas sin decir que libros son regalos maravillosos para los días festivos! Esperamos que ustedes animen a sus hijos a leer cuando puedan durante las vacaciones de invierno. Los programas de aprendizaje en internet de Raz Kids, Kid-Biz, ST Math, y Reflex Math están disponibles durante las vacaciones de invierno si sus hijos tienen tiempo de usarlos. Cuando regresemos en enero, estamos emocionados por una visita de algunas de las personas jóvenes quienes han crecido en el orfanato de Corazón de Vida en Baja California. Cada año, reunimos materiales y libros para los orfanatos y muchas familias de Edison han tomado un autobús a Baja California para entregar los materiales y visitar a los niños. Es una gran experiencia para nuestros estudiantes escuchar de estos adultos jóvenes quienes han tenido niñeces diferentes y retozas y ahora están en la universidad. Si les gustaría ser parte de estos intercambios, quédense un poquito el martes por la mañana de la primer semana que regresamos. ¡Les deseamos a todos una temporada festiva maravillosa y paz y alegría en el año que viene! ¡Nos vemos en el 2017!

Bah! Humbug Santa Monica Rep presents

Directed by Jen Bloom

A Christmas Carol

December 1 – 18, 2016 Opening Night: December 2 Miles Playhouse in Santa Monica Attn: Edison Elementary School Parents, Faculty, and Staff One Weekend left! See the most recent review here: http://laexcites.com/2016/12/06/christmas-carol-meaningful-message-ever/

Santa Monica Rep invites Edison Elementary parents, students, faculty and staff to a new adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic holiday ghost story, A Christmas Carol, directed by Jen Bloom, and featuring Arlo Petty as Tiny Tim, a 4th grader in attendance at St Mark Elementary in Venice. This production is taking place in the historic Miles Playhouse in Reed Park, at the corner of Wilshire and Lincoln in Downtown Santa Monica. The production runs through the 18th of December; please join us after the show for eggnog and caroling. A Christmas Carol is a terrific show for the whole family. It is recommended for children 8 and up. Please be aware that it is a ghost story, and as such, there will be some spooky imagery employed, which may be too much for younger kids, or sensitive older children. Tickets are available now by visiting santamonicarep.org. Tickets can also be purchased in-person at the Miles Playhouse beginning 90 minutes prior to show time. A portion of all ticket sales will be donated to local charities supporting the homeless. There are group discounts of 30% off for parties of 8 or more.

Christine Emerson Reed Park, Santa Monica CA 90403. This production is made possible in part with support from The Broad Stage. About Santa Monica Rep Santa Monica Rep is a professional ensemble dedicated to presenting classic and contemporary plays with relevant themes. Since 2010, the company has produced and presented five main stage productions (The Tempest, Proof, How I Learned to Drive, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare abridged, The Memorandum), two themed and curated gala theatrical experiences (Brecht-cerpts, a Brecht-inspired evening of theater at the historic Santa Monica house of the former playwright and director; and Le Salon du Santa Monica Rep, a Moliere-themed night of costumes and wigs, with a staged-reading of The Learned Ladies), a new play festival (Wave Fest at the historic Church in Ocean Park), and dozens of readings, salons, and special events at venues throughout the city of Santa Monica (including the Miles Playhouse, the Promenade Playhouse, and now, The Edye Second Space at The Broad Stage). Their inaugural production of The Tempest was awarded the Annenberg Beach House Summer residency in 2011 and took place steps from the beach at the historic Marion Davies Guest house. Since 2010, they have partnered with the Santa Monica Library to present free staged-readings to the community. To date, Santa Monica Rep has read almost 20 plays to nearly 2000 community members, and engaged hundreds more in riveting and probing post-show discussion, often with panelists or community members with expertise in a field related to the themes of the particular play.
