Principal's Message


August 2019

Dear Edison Families,

We warmly welcome our students back to school!  And to those students joining us for the first time this year, welcome to the Edison School community!

Staff is working hard to prepare for the first day of school on Monday, August 19th.  Personally, I am always enthused about the start of school, as it provides new opportunities each time for students, families and the school staff to connect, grow and learn together.  Our staff has been working hard during the summer to provide the best educational experience for our Edison Otters!

We hope to provide you some information to make the start of school as smooth as possible, as well as a few upcoming dates relating to the 2019- 20 school year:

We encourage families to log on to the AERIES Family Portal and become familiar with the tool.  Annual data confirmation on AERIES is required for all students, as this provides an opportunity for families to review their student’s information including medications, address change, emergency information, authorizations, etc. and update information as needed.  You can find this link on our website homepage by clicking on the AERIES Family Portal quick link.

The Edison PTA will continue to post events on Konstella, Facebook and the website, This includes some upcoming PTA sponsored summer and start of school events for your calendar:

  • Friday, August 16 - Kindergarten ice cream social, 1 - 3 pm, Edison playground
  • Monday, August 19 - First day coffee, 8:20 - 9:30 am, Edison MPR
  • Saturday, August 24 - All student playdate, 10 am - 12 pm, Edison playground

Here are a few important dates relating to the start of school in August:

  • Monday, August 19 First Day of School
  • August 19 - 23 Early dismissal for Grades 1 - 5 @ 1:50 pm
  • August 19 - September 6 Early dismissal for Kindergarten @ 11:40 am
  • Thursday, August 29 Back to School Night

I encourage you to further explore this website to find out more about the various programs and resources that Edison School has to offer. 

We hope that you enjoy the remaining days of your summer, and we will see you for the first day of school on August 19th!
