AVID Senior Ceremony
On Wednesday May 20th the AVID senior ceremony was held in cafeteria. The students recognized all those who had helped them reach their academic goals over the last two to six years as members of the AVID program. The Edison AVID site team and the students' families celebrated the students' determination to succeed and their intent to attend college. We congratulate these students on their success!
Congratulations Emily Flack
Congratulations to senior, Emily Flack, for her Cappie nomination for Female Vocalist in a musical for her portrayal as Annie in "Annie Get Your Gun".
This is an incredible honor as only five (5) females are selected from many schools in the greater Washington D.C. area for this and other theatrical categories. This includes more than high schools and secondary schools in FCPS.
For those of you, unfamiliar with what Cappies is all about. It is the "academy awards" of high school theatre. In June, at the John F. Kennedy Performing Arts Center, hundreds of high school students, their family and friends, board members, politicians, and other dignitaries will descend upon the Concert Hall for a three hour extravaganza.
