    About Edison School

    Edison Elementary School is a neighborhood school located just a few blocks away from Alameda’s bustling Park Street and Central Avenue shopping and dining district.  With a population of approximately 480 students in grades Kindergarten through fifth and a robust Parent Teacher Association, Edison Elementary School is a thriving and vibrant community.  The staff is made up of highly dedicated individuals who bring years of experience and knowledge to teaching each child at Edison.  Edison Otters are active and hard-working students who contribute to the school community in a number of ways.  Our students strive to uphold the Edison Citizen Agreements and are committed to our Go Green efforts.  Edison’s PTA further enhances the learning environment at Edison with many programs, funding, field trips, technology, classroom materials, and other essential resources. 

    Please explore our website to learn more about Edison Elementary School and our outstanding Edison Otters.

    We have been very grateful to all of the Edison families, staff and community for their help and support for the annual Read-a-Thon fundraiser! This annual event has been a significant source of funds for the Edison PTA since it began seven years ago and it's the only fundraiser that includes student participation. It's also a great way to kick off the school year with lots of excitement and enthusiasm for reading.  Here are the results:

         - Total number of participants: 328 students

         - Total time read by participants over 14-day event: 4,405 hours

         - Total donations raised by the students: about $35,500

    The culmination event was that each student that participated got a piece of duct tape to help tape the principal to the wall...see the attached video link below to see how it worked out!  Thanks once again for a wonderful event!

    Family Volunteer Opportunities


    Dear Edison Families,

    A great way to help our community and have a wonderful shared experience with your children is to get involved with a Community Service activity.  Particularly over the holiday season, providing our kids with the gift of the positive feeling that come with helping others.  

    You can explore some projects that your family can get involved with together by clicking on the link to the Doing Good Together Volunteer Opportunities listing.  On it, you will find listings for support for seniors, community clean up, addressing food insecurity, and many other opportunities that you can do as a family.

    Additionally, here are a couple of other helpful links that list opportunities for giving:

    Thank you for promoting a culture of giving at home, at Edison and in our community!

    By scrolling to the bottom of the page, you will find  the Assessments results are available to the public at the California Department of Education CAASPP webpage.  Through this link, you can look more specifically at how schools throughout the state (including Edison) performed on the CAASPP, along with the results of several other assessments administered by the state each year.

    Attendance Is Important

    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.
