Dear Edison Parents and Families,
It's hard to believe that we are already a few weeks into the school year and progress reports come out in just a few days! This is a big week so I wanted to send a special email with reminders about the week's events.
I also wanted to let you know that my husband and I are expecting a baby boy in early October. We are so excited to expand our family and feel very grateful for the support of the Edison community while I prepare for maternity leave. I anticipate being on leave throughout October and November and returning sometime in December before winter break. This afternoon, I met with the retired administrator covering my leave to begin transition planning. Dr. Chris Brake, former principal of Bridge Elementary, will serve as administrator in charge in my absence. He and I worked closely together when he was a Network 1 principal and I have every confidence that you will be in great hands.
Also, please be on the lookout for an email from me tomorrow with information on fall after-school programming!
As always, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.
Karen Valentine, EdD
Principal, Edison Regional Gifted Center
