What’s Right in the School District of Janesville (SDJ) is a forum to recognize outstanding performances and achievements by SDJ employees, students and schools. The most important factor in a student’s educational success is the quality of the teacher in the classroom. Today’s blog is dedicated to some of the incredible teachers in our middle schools!
Edison Middle School Teachers Welcome Sixth Grade Families
Edison Teachers Krista Twist, Craig Bergum, Kay Knilans, Nicole Berger and Sarah Abbey (Edison’s Vista Volunteer) worked together to create a sixth grade family night which took place last week. Sarah Abbey was able to secure donations for almost 90% of the food for this event. The families were able to have hot dogs or brat, with chips, fruit, and a juice. The purpose of the family night was for the parents to come to Edison and have their son/daughter read a short story (that they wrote) to them. It was a huge success!
