2021 Summer Enrichment
High school teachers will not give summer assignments. Instead, teachers are providing optional enrichment activities that are not for a grade. Reading for choice is highly encouraged but not required.
The purpose of optional summer enrichment is to:
- Activate students’ background knowledge and skills
- Provide opportunity to review introductory topics/prerequisites for a course
- Create or enhance enthusiasm and interest in a subject or to serve as a springboard for future learning.

Thomas A. Edison High School Features
Mr. Fox Recognized as the FCPS 2021 Region 3 Outstanding Secondary Teacher
Congratulations Amelia Carr
Edison FBLA won more competitive events than any other FCPS school, and the second-most competitive events in all of Virginia. More Edison students participated in and won SLC events than at any time in school history (if I’m not mistaken).
Senior Jorge Mansilla served as Virginia FBLA's Vice President Representing the Northern Virginia Region and Northern Virginia Regional President. Jorge and his team have passed the torch to a new team of state officers. I am proud to announce that freshman Katrina Chen will serve as an at large state officer, and freshman Yaqeen Bahjat will assume Jorge's position as State Vice President Representing the Northern Virginia Region/Northern Virginia Regional President.
Our chapter's projects this year received outstanding awards. In the following chapter events, students plan, implement, and run projects around a specific topic, and then must document their project's successes and growth opportunities through a 15-page report.
