RE: Recognition Night Information
On Tuesday, May 28th at 6:00 p.m. we will be recognizing the accomplishments of the Edison 8th grade students at our Recognition Night Ceremony. Please note, our ceremony will be held in the Hawkins Gym at Pekin High School.
We feel it is our opportunity as a learning community to emphasize the importance of hard work and effort, and to send the message that school is important to everyone’s success. We are very proud of our students and think that together we can make this a memorable night for parents, relatives, and students of EJHS. In an attempt to create a dignified and respectful ceremony we are asking for your cooperation in the following areas:
During our conversations with all of our 8th graders, we have stressed that attending and participating in this ceremony is a privilege. We have clearly explained our expectations for student behavior during the remaining days of school. Students who are unable to follow our expectations will forfeit their privilege to participate. We strongly urge all parents / guardians to speak with their student and help reinforce our expectations.
Thank you for your help in making this a positive event for the 2019 eighth grade class.
Welcome to Edison Junior High School
We will prepare students socially, emotionally, and academically to become independent learners and cooperative problem solvers.
