From the SFSD website:
"The Sioux Falls School District values its ongoing partnership with community stakeholders as it seeks to meet its mission “to educate and prepare each student to succeed in a changing world.” As the city continues to flourish as a vibrant economic engine, those successes are resulting in increasing enrollment in the public schools.
As part of the Strategic Plan, the district is seeking feedback from all stakeholders regarding future facility needs.
In an effort to envision an even brighter future for the Sioux Falls School District, the district held three community listening sessions in March and April, and a 30-member, citizen-led Facilities Task Force met in April and May to develop recommendations to address needs.
Now, we want your opinion.
All residents in the district’s attendance area are invited to participate in the survey at the link below, which seeks input on short-term and long-term solutions to a variety of needs identified in the district. Please know that individual responses will remain confidential. The survey will close on June 24. The estimated time required to complete the survey is 15 minutes. We respect your time, and we want to emphasize the importance of your participation.
Information from community members will be used by the board and the Facilities Task Force to determine recommendations and to prioritize solutions. The board will consider bringing forward solutions to the most urgent concerns for voters to consider in a September 2018 referendum."
FILL OUT THE SURVEY HERE by June 24, 2018.
We are all Edison PTO
As a parent (or grandparent, aunt, uncle, guardian, etc.) of an Edison student, you are automatically a member of the PTO and a valuable part of this organization of people who support our school.
WHY DO I NEED TO GET INVOLVED?
Family involvement at school is very rewarding and important to the success of your child. The PTO needs your voice and commitment in order to provide enriching events and opportunities to our students.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We have a history of sponsoring many wonderful events such assisting with Catapult Days, sponsoring school assemblies and extra student enrichment experiences, “Chill on the Hill,” the 8th grade end-of-the-year party, teacher appreciation week and conference meals. We also use money raised from donations and fundraisers to purchase items for the school and support our teachers. The Elkay water-filling stations, café sound system, projection screen for the gym, landscaping, teacher lounge updates, auditorium lighting and sound updates and benches for the courtyard are a few examples.
DOES IT COST TO JOIN?
No, there are no membership fees. However, in order to fund the many events at school, we do accept donations! We will also be hosting the Edison Color-A-Thon Fun Run/Walk September 22nd and catalog sales in late fall. These funds will help enrich our student’s learning experiences.
