Welcome Eagle Families-

On behalf of the Edison Staff, I would like to welcome our families to the 2021-22 school year!


It's hard to believe that summer has come and gone, but we are eager to get back at it! We are committed to continuing to strive to meet the diverse needs of our students, both academically and social-emotionally, each and every day. We look forward to continuing to partner with our families in order to ensure that all of our Eagles are working to their full potential and demonstrating personal growth- throughout every facet of their school days.


We intend to embrace the past 18 months of trials and tribulations surrounding the pandemic. We understand that all of our Eagles had diverse school experiences during this time. We also understand the diverse life experiences that many of our students faced. We can empathize with all of our Eagles and their families regarding the diverse feelings they're experiencing about the return to school. Please know that when our Eagles step foot in our building - we are one. We are one community of learners striving to become our best selves.


We're ready to welcome all of our Eagles back with open arms and the promise of brighter tomorrows. Our hope is to continue building upon the many traditions that make Edison such a great place to learn and grow!


We can't wait to see our Eagles- THEY are the reason we all smile!


Hugs,

Mrs. Wiegand
