What a school thinks about its library is a measure of what it feels about education.

BOBCAT BATTLE OF THE BOOKS
At our March 24th Edison Championship, the Revenge of the Orange Crushers held on to their season lead to defeat the Swag Book Squids in a close contest, which may have been the fastest battle we have had to date. Congratulations to Ashley, Keira, Ella, Paige and Mikayla who will represent Edison School at the D205 Crosstown Classic Battle at Field Elementary School on Monday, April 11th after school. Parents, friends and other supporters are invited to come to Field and cheer on our Revenge of the Orange Crushers!

Research Resources for YOU!
Browsing for interesting websites? Learning about a topic? Researching for school? Interested in a famous person? Here are some links to databases purchased by District 205 that are available to Edison students. Usernames and passwords (required to access these databases from home) are available at school - please see Mrs. Greska or Mrs. McGinnis if you need reminders of usernames and passwords, or if you have any questions.
Celebrating a birthday, holiday, special person or occasion in your family or in your child’s life? Choose a CELEBRATION BOOK! to celebrate a birthday (instead of a sugary treat!) Maybe you will choose a CELEBRATION BOOK! to donate to the Edison LMC in honor of a special child, family member, teacher or to commemorate holiday or event. We appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity.
If you are looking for book ideas, we have put together a list of books that we know students at Edison School would love to read. You can always check with Mrs. Greska about a particular book to see if the Edison LMC already has the book. We do prefer hardcover books as they are much more durable than paperback ones when circulating to numerous readers.
After the donation of a book:
- a permanent CELEBRATION BOOK! bookplate will be placed on the inside of the book with the donor’s name, date and the event or person being celebrated;
- the honored student can be the first person to check out the book from the Edison LMC.
Upon return from the first check-out, the CELEBRATION BOOK! will take its place on the shelves of the Edison LMC for everyone to enjoy for years to come.
Please click here for book ideas, and thanks for thinking of the Edison LMC!
