Boy Scouts Improve Edison Campus

Boy Scouts Improve Edison Campus


Two former Edison students were honored for completing Boy Scout Eagle Scout projects at Edison Elementary School this week. Brendan Mills restored a map of the United States painted on the school’s blacktop. Carl Howell created an outdoor classroom to enhance the teaching and learning that happens at Edison.

Such projects give boy scouts opportunities to learn to lead others while also helping the community.

“Both of these young men have exemplified the traits of cheerful service and unrelenting pursuit of getting these projects completed,” Principal Robert Slauson said in his remarks. “In spite of red tape, obstacles, and challenges, they managed to complete these wonderful projects. We are better off as a school because of it!”


“We are grateful that these students have returned to give back to their elementary school,” said Superintendent Sean McPhetridge. “And we thank them for their perseverance and contributions to others.”

Annual Back-to-School Registration for 2017-2018

AUSD uses Back-to-School Registration every year to confirm that a student will be attending a district school in the upcoming school year. The registration also gives parent/guardians a chance to update emergency contacts, acknowledge annual authorizations, and review the district’s policies. We ask that parent/guardians complete the registration via our InfoSnap online system as soon as possible.

To get started, you will need your student’s unique 2017-18 SnapCode. We will send these out by email starting July 26. (If we don’t have a valid email, we will send the SnapCode to you via postal mail.) If you do not receive this information by August 7, please contact your student’s school site directly for assistance. The easiest way to access registration is to click the snapcode link in the email. If you receive a letter or need to log back into InfoSnap click here:
