I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I realize that the start of school is still a few weeks away, but plans are already being made at Edison Elementary for the 2015-2016 school year. We are very excited about the new school year and the opportunity to welcome you and your child(ren) to Edison Elementary School. To help you plan for your child’s upcoming year, an orientation meeting has been scheduled for Friday, August 21st between 9:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. The orientation will consist of a brief meeting in the gymnasium and a tour of the classrooms. Students are encouraged to bring their supplies to the orientation and take them to their homerooms. This year each grade level will have a separate orientation. The schedule is as follows:
1st grade: 9:00 am
2nd grade: 9:45 am
3rd grade: 10:30 am
Kindergarten: 11:15 am
During the orientation the teachers will be in their homerooms, and the principal will be available to answer questions or concerns you may have regarding class schedules, bus routes, routines, and academic expectations. In the past, many parents have chosen to pay the student supply fees at this meeting. The cost of supply fees this year is $30.00 per student. This will be one less concern on the first day of school.
We hope you are enjoying the summer. We look forward to seeing you and your child on Friday, August 21st.
