Golden Wellness Award Project
The Golden Wellness Award is a project that the Health and Physical Education department embraces in order to continue to bring the message of Life Wellness to Edison’s students, staff and community. The purpose of this program is to inspire others to make exercise and proper nutrition a lifelong commitment. The Wellness Score Card was created to recognize schools that are focused on wellness in their school and their community. It addresses School Board Student Achievement Goals 2.8 and 3.2. The Fairfax County Public School Board also adopted a wellness policy to promote student health and contribute to the reduction of childhood obesity (FCPS Policy and Regulation 7211).

Edison Supports Distracted Driving Awareness Month
Buckle Up. Phone Down. April has been designated as DISTRACTED DRIVING AWARNESS MONTH in Virginia and today we join DRIVE SMART Virginia in supporting their education and outreach efforts as we all work to make Virginia’s roadways the safest in the nation. We also call on all drivers in Fairfax County to avoid any distractions when they’re driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in the U.S. in 2012, 3,328 people were killed in crashes caused by a distracted driver. An estimated 421,000 people were injured in crashes involving a distracted driver. Sign the PLEDGE to drive distraction free.
