Our New Garden Shed! Thanks to the Dad's Club

Thank you to all who were able to come out and help on Saturday, April 29, 2017, with the new garden shed.

Whether you helped a little or a lot, we really appreciate all your dedication, muscles and handy tools. 


Here is our new shed!  On the right sidebar, there are a few more photos from the day.  Thank you so much!!


Launch of the "Straws On Request" Campaign!  No More Plastic Straws!


Edison is launching a campaign against Single use plastic straws.


Single-use plastic straws are polluting our oceans and landfills across the globe. They are a Top 10 offender of trash and debris!  Approximately 500 million straws are used and discarded every day in the US alone. This is over 175 billion-per-year. As such, Edison is helping to take part in this year’s community request to the City of Alameda to pass a citywide ordinance. 


In years past, we have worked hard to get rid of Styrofoam, which actually worked!  We are now asking local Alameda restaurants and businesses to distribute single use plastic straws ONLY upon request. in the past few weeks, we joined other AUSD schools in launching our letter writing campaign -- at every grade level, from K through 5th, to ask Alameda City Officials to pass this new ordinance in 2017.


Launch of “Straws Upon Request” Coin Collection

We just launched alongside our “Straws On Request” campaign, a Coin Collection for all classrooms. This ran all this past week. Funds will support the Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda” (CASA) a 501-c3, “Straws On Request” Initiative.


Green Otter Awards for Reduced Waste

In conjunction with Stopwaste.org, Edison’s 5th  grade recently conducted “Waste Audits” in every classroom.  They determined how well our students are following the  3-stream recycling rules.

During a recent Assembly, Principal Slauson announced the “Report Cards” of this audit – by grade. Fifth grade classes will be following up with a “post-audit” in the coming weeks, from which one winning class per grade will receive a special award. The students will also present their findings this spring via formal presentations.

Stay tuned for more information!

Stay green! and help our planet one person at a time!

Black History Banner delivered by Sean McPhetridge

Sean McPhetridge, superintendent of Alameda Unified School District, stopped by Edison the morning of February 7 to bring us a Black History Banner.  The banner has photos of many important contributors to society who are black.  

It even includes one individual, on the right, who is none other than a local Alameda community organizer, known as Elector Littlejohn.  She is the woman for whom Alameda’s Littlejohn Park is named.  Thus, the poster not only commemorates Alameda history but also a local African-American civil rights champion as well.
