Edison School, along with other elementary schools in Alameda USD, will hold Kindergarten Information Night on Thursday, January 17, 2019, from, 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM.  This will be an evening for parents to hear about the Kindergarten program at Edison, receive information about the enrollment process for AUSD, and meet Kindergarten teachers and other staff.  We encourage new families to Edison to attend this important first event in getting to know our school. 


More information about the enrollment process can be found on the attached information sheet, as well as at the AUSD website link also attached.  We look forward to seeing you then!


A BIG thank you to our students and families for supporting the PTA fundraiser for victims of the Camp Fire in Butte county.  The community raised over $2500 in cash and gift card donations.   The spirit and generosity of our Edison community is heartwarming. 


***Update 12/17/18 - the amount is now up to $3258, thanks to a generous donation from the Edison Girl Scouts (third grade troop) over this past weekend!***


A particular thank you to the Edison PTA Community Service Committee for their tireless efforts in making this happen!


Starting in January, thanks to the support of the Edison PTA, we will be holding monthly coffees with the principal. These coffees will take place monthly, following one of our Tuesday Community Meetings with students.  The coffees are at 8:30, in the Multi-Purpose Room, on the following dates:  January 15, February 12, March 12, April 30 and May 28.


These coffees are meant as an opportunity to engage in informal conversations about our school.  Information is shared by the Principal regarding upcoming events and activities, as well as current and planned programs.  It is also an occasion to ask questions and share ideas about improving student achievement and our school….and coffee will be served!  Please calendar the dates, and/or keep a lookout for announcements.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Please remember...Attendance is important!

If your child is absent, please call the Edison Attendance Line at 510-748-4002, ext. 2 to report this to the school.  Please follow the  instructions to leave a message, including: Your name, relationship to the student, the student's name, room number, teacher, the date of absence or tardy, and the reason for the absence.  Messages will be collected daily.

Students who arrive on time and are ready to go in the morning get the most out of their school experience. Students who arrive late must go to the office to obtain a late pass before they are allowed in the classroom.  This applies to all students.

Please ensure your child is ready to go for school by preparing their lunch the night before if they are bringing, deciding on what to wear the night before, and that backpacks, schoolwork, and everything needed for the day is ready to go and by your front door.  By preparing for the next day, it can make your morning run that much smoother, and help your child arrive to school on time.
