UFRS is a first grade tutorial program that focuses on increasing students’ reading achievement. The main goal is to bring students to grade level in reading by the end of the school year. Community volunteers are recruited and receive extensive training. The program runs from October to May with students receiving over 70 hours of one-on one instruction from the volunteer tutors. The strategies used by the tutors reinforce the first grade reading program.


Lawrence University students volunteer their time to mentor Edison students who have been recommended for this wonderful mentorship program. Lawrence students are available to meet with Edison students for about an hour each week at school and also, with parent/guardian permission, outside of school.


PBIS is a school-wide, positive behavior system that encompasses classroom, hallway, bathroom and playground behaviors. A keystone for PBIS is to teach students what expected behavior is so they can be successful. 

Who Should Volunteer: Any parent who would like to help develop a school-wide PBIS environment. 

Meeting Times: Meeting times will be after school before Edison Staff Meetings (3:30 – 4:00). Committee members should be prepared to take part in district sponsored trainings.
