Programs and Services

 

Library
Each class at Edison School is given an opportunity to visit the school library each week for 30 minutes.  Students may check out one book, provided they have returned the book from the previous week.  Lost or damaged library books must be replaced at the student’s expense.  Please go to http://library.ci.glendale.ca.us/library_borrowing_policy.asp for information about the Glendale Public Library's lending policy.  Parent volunteers are always needed to supervise the library.  The library is open to students and staff from 8:00am to 2:00pm daily.  The Library is open to the public afterschool starting from 1pm-8pm on Mondays and Wednesdays, 1pm-6pm on Tuesdays and 10am-6pm on Thursdays.  Homework Help (free tutoring) is available Monday-Thursday, 4pm-7pm.  If you would like to help in the library, please contact Varso Belemjian at (818) 241-1807 ext. 5107
 
 
Physical Education  
A credentialed physical education teacher provides a sequential, balanced program for 120 minutes per week for all students in grades 4-6.  In kindergarten through third grade, the classroom teacher is responsible for the physical education program, averaging 20 minutes per day, throughout the school year.  A specific curriculum has been developed, and all teachers have been trained in its implementation.  Physical education 
equipment includes:  hula hoops, cones, Frisbees, jump ropes, balls in various sizes, volleyball nets, tennis rackets, hockey sticks, pucks, and softball equipment.  As with all outdoor activities, physical education classes are curtailed and moved indoors based upon inclement weather or unhealthy air alerts from air quality control authorities.  Students should bring a water bottle and towel to sit on every PE day.  Students are graded on participation and sportsmanship.  **Students who have a sling, cast or splint are excluded from physical education until they bring a doctor's note that clears them to return to the playground.
 
 
Instrumental Music
Students, grades 4-6, are invited to participate in the instrumental music program.  The teacher, credentialed in music, instructs students on Tuesdays during the regular school day.  The District has a limited number of instruments that may be rented; students may provide their own or also rent from a local music store. Attendance at the weekly practice is important if students are to learn the instrument they have chosen.  Students are expected to practice every day at home.  There is a year-end performance, as well as a soloist recital.
 
**All extra-curricular programs are pending the availability of funding and staff.  Not all programs are held every year.  Participation is based on good citizenship and work habits.  Students with "Needs Improvement" marks on their report cards will not be allowed to participate in extra-curricular activities
