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.

In partnership,

Karen Valentine, EdD

Principal, Edison Regional Gifted Center

School Picture Day - Thursday

This is a friendly reminder that school picture day is this Thursday! Ordering instructions were sent home with students last week and all families will get a chance to see the photos before purchasing. A tip for new families -- we do not recommend students wear white or very light colors since the photo backdrop is white.

Picture day retakes will be held on October 12th for students who are absent or would like a photo re-do.

If you have any other questions, please reach out!

No School This Friday

This Friday is a professional development day for teachers and staff and a non-attendance day for students. We look forward to seeing your students bright and early Monday morning!

Progress Report Distribution

Progress reports will be sent home with students on Thursday. We'll also send home score reports from beginning of the year Star 360 and iReady assessments for those students who have completed the assessments by that day.
