As a District, our mission is not only to educate our students, but to go to the next level and create life long learners.   We hope to instill the values of education that help them become “life-long learners”.  Edison’s Educational Pathway helps students understand the journey they will travel during their educational career.  We acknowledge each step along this path on the following days:

Tuesday, April 21 – Edison Elementary School Day

Wednesday, April 22 – Sandburg Middle School Day

Thursday, April 23 – York High School Day

Friday, April 24 – Higher Education Day

Bobcat's Givin' Back


The Edison staff, PTA and Student Council have been collaborating on a new annual philanthropic program called Bobcats Givin’ Back! This program will get Edison students involved with helping a local group in need. This year, we will be working with a school in the city of Chicago. Please click HERE for full information.

2015 -2016 School Supplies Available Now

The Edison PTA is offering parents the convenience of purchasing your children’s school supplies online! They have collaborated with 1st Day School Supplies to help parents get the exact supplies needed for next school year without the hassle of running around town shopping for them. Using 1st Day School Supplies is convenient, easy and hassle free! Supply packages are grouped by class on their website, so you just need to click on the package you need, pay through the 1st Day School Supplies website, and your supplies will be available for you to pick up at the Back to School Block Party later this Summer! Plus, the prices are competitive! So, instead of running around town looking for school supplies, take this opportunity to get your shopping done today! Orders must be placed by June 30th. Additionally, a list of all required school supplies (only a few of which are not included in the online packages) is available by clicking HERE, or from the link on the left side of this webpage. If you have any questions, please contact Kristen Jacobs at Kristen@guaren.com.
