A student EHK Council was started several years ago. If your child is interested in being part of the “Student EHK Council” please have them contact Mr. Heurkens.

Classroom Buddies

This program matches new students with a “Buddy” from their classroom. Buddies help students who are new to Edison, make a smooth transition into their new school. A Classroom Buddy is also available for other students who may need a “buddy” during the school year. The students who are chosen to be Classroom Buddies in each room have a genuine interest in helping others.
