A Note From Our Principal
The Future Of Dayton Starts Here
Neighborhood School Center Partnership
Edison PreK-8 School partners with the Downtown YMCA to create a Neighborhood School Center. Through this partnership, students, parents, and community members are provided with extra opportunities to develop academically and socially. Some of the programs the Neighborhood School Center offers are, a state-licensed after-school child care program, a Safe Routes to School initiative including walk to school days and mileage club, a school newspaper, and intramural sports. Edison also has strong relationships with many community organizations that provide many other student and family programs and events as a result of being a Neighborhood School Center.
Edison Land Lab
As many as 50 adult community volunteers and 500 students from Edison PreK-8 School will be creating and planting prairie seed and native wildflowers and grasses as part of a land lab that will be created on vacant city lots across from the school. This project is made possible through a unique collaboration between Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm, Edison PreK-8 School, the Downtown YMCA, Wright-Dunbar Association, Cyp Studios and the City of Dayton. The creation of this prairie will be a great benefit to the school and neighborhood. It will reduce the drain on City of Dayton resources, bring beauty to the neighborhood, create an outdoor teaching space for students to learn, and create a sanctuary for wildlife. On May 26 and 27, Edison students by grade section will incorporate the prairie planting experience as part of their daily science lesson.
