Welcome to our new Assistant Principal, Mrs. Truc-Lan Vu

Mrs. Truc-Lan Vu lives in Warren with her husband, Matt, 6-month old son, Andrew, and their two cats, Queso and Newton. She grew up in Rockaway, NJ with her parents and older sister.

Prior to coming to Edison, she taught third and fourth grades in Summit and Bernardsville. She completed graduate programs at The College of New Jersey and Montclair State University.

As a classroom teacher, she loved being able to connect with students and content through rich picture books. She is passionate about educating the whole child and supporting educators to help them do the same. She loves integrating technology and supporting students, families, and educators navigate technology to enhance learning.

In her free time, Mrs. Vu enjoys cooking, board games, and has recently learned to sew. She plays a number of instruments including piano and violin and sings with Harmonium Choral Society. She loves spending time with her family and friends over a great meal or a movie.

Mrs. Vu is looking forward to joining the Washington community. She is excited to support students, families, and staff in the coming school year.

The link to the meeting will be posted:

K-2: Seesaw homeroom class

Both Seesaw and Google Classroom can be accessed through Edison Classlink.

Please refer to this document previously sent about logging in to the iPad and Chromebook.

It would be helpful if you practice logging in with your student prior to Thursday.

ATTENDANCE--Remote Learning

Students are expected to login daily by 9am. Teachers will be taking attendance and reporting that to the main office. If your child is sick or unable to attend, please contact the teacher directly.

Meet your teachers- Parent/Family Meetings

As we venture in to a school year remotely, it is important for our teachers to get to know each student and their families. We will be utilizing the Parent Portal to set up these parent-teacher conferences from September 3-11. Please use this link to log in to the parent portal and pick the afternoon time that best works for your family.
