Welcome! Edison Elementary School serves about 415 students in grades K through 5. We are a National School of Character and a four-time recipient of the ADL's No Place for Hate Award. We earned these distinctions by demonstrating to these organizations that character development has a positive impact on our students' academic achievement and behavior, as well as on our school climate. Our rigorous academic program emphasizes literacy, math, science and language development through the arts and music. Edison also offers enrichment programming and an after school program that serves almost half of our students.

Elementary school students at Thomas Edison School are participating in the Kids Heart Challenge run by the American Heart Association. Physical education teachers Jenna Lividini and Jamie Florindi coordinate this fundraiser each year with their jumping and landing unit.

The Kids Heart Challenge (formerly known as Jump Rope for Heart) begins in February, when students are given envelopes and asked to get donations from family and friends for the challenge. Before they start the challenge, students practice jumping skills with different equipment such as hurdles, hula hoops, jumping sticks and jump ropes. The goal this year is to raise $3,000 as an entire school. Students are looking forward to reaching the goal and seeing their donations help children in need.

“It is great seeing our students strive for a goal and achieve it,” Florindi said. “The smiles and exhaustion on their faces says it all!”

Black History Month Celebrated

As part of Black History Month, Thomas Edison Principal Paul Roncagliolo highlights the accomplishments of a different person each day during morning announcements. Teachers chose one person to research together as a class and display their projects in the hallway.

In Chyna Marino’s class students read nonfiction texts about Kobe Bryant’s life and legacy. Bryant aimed to inspire and challenge other young people to be their best selves. He is well known for his “Mamba Mentality” mantra. According to Bryant, Mamba Mentality means trying to be our best version of ourselves constantly. The class discussed this idea together and related it to their growth mindset SEL lessons, and then created a collaborative poster with another inspiring quote from Kobe.

“We were inspired to learn more about Kobe Bryant because of his strong message of strength, determination and perseverance through challenge,” Marino said. “Students were inspired by his message as we prepare for their first year of state tests, and we continue to try hard things in the classroom every day!”
