The Edison Eagle Fun Run is the primary fundraiser of the year for Edison.  Students collected pledges from friends and family and then participated in a 1/2 run around the Edison track.  Students earned a bracelet for each lap run and a medal for finishing the run in addition to any prizes won through the collection of donations.  Proceeds from the Fun Run are used by the Edison PTO to pay for class trips, materials, books, and activities throughout the year at Edison.

Dictionary Day

20181004-Elliott Dictionary Day 2
Elliott Elementary

Every year the Grange, a Non-Profit Organization founded by farmers to improve agriculture, legislation, and community, donates hundreds of dictionaries to local schools. The Dictionary Program or "Words for Thirds" is a huge project that many Granges do!

This year we had a record amount of dictionaries our Grange ordered and delivered, which essentially means the number of children in need of dictionaries and the amount of which we can help is increasing. 

In total, we delivered 1,200 dictionaries this year! Yet the amazing part is the impact the gift of a dictionary has on these children. And we are always happy to give these children that, the gift of knowledge!

Watchdogs Kickoff

WatchDOGS kickoff A2

Photos taken by Kevin McKay

Over forty volunteers and their students attended.  Over a third of them were new volunteers!

Your PTO provided pizza and lemonade.  After dinner, the students went down the hall to watch Bill Nye, Science Guy with a couple teachers.

A Watch DOGS introduction video was shown.

Principal Mytych offered an overview of the program and the daily routines.

Coordinator McKay offered some insights from a volunteer perspective, fielded a few questions from new volunteers, explained some new additions to the program including pictures of all Watch DOGS with their Watch Pup, a yearbook page, and the making of Field Day into a Watch DOGS signature event with Watch DOGS running the games so teachers and other parent volunteers can stay with their classes through the whole event.

Our PTO provided Watch DOGS merchandise prizes for a raffle - each Watch DOGS volunteer who signed up for two or more days during the kickoff was entered into the drawing.

Great event!

Lots of interest!

Looking for a great year of Watch DOGS

Every year for the past 6 years National Junior Honor Society has had a Pink Out at Stevenson Middle School. We sell bracelets, stickers, pencils, pens, and bookmarks. Our goal is to raise $200.00 each year that we can donate to the Karmanos Cancer Foundation. in Detroit. The students and staff participate by wearing as much pink as they possibly can, some even dye their hair pink for the day. Today was no different, everyone came dressed in pink. It was amazing.
