Communication


Thursday Folders

All families will receive information in a weekly Thursday Folder (Friday for kindergarten). These will include classroom- and/or grade-specific info, community flyers, school event flyers, a monthly newsletter, and classroom completed work and assignments. The monthly newsletter will include a letter from the Principal, a list of upcoming events and PTA information, including meetings and volunteer and/or fundraising opportunities.

Edison Website

The Edison website is designed as a central hub for all current and historic communications. Staff email addresses, blog posts, Google and DPS calendars, supply lists, meeting agendas and minutes are some of the things you can find on this website. Sync the school calendar to your smartphone and get a leg up on events!

Facebook

Be sure to Like/Follow us on Facebook we will have links to blog posts as well as PTA, school, and community updates.

Edison Family Forum

We have a family forum to promote dialog, ask questions and share info that may be of interest to our school. This helps us build a stronger and more cohesive community. The Edison Family Forum is hosted on BigTent.com and has a general forum for the whole school with subgroups for each grade level. Please request an invitation from the site and if you have a Hotmail or MSN address and are having issues, please email the PTA Secretary.

All forum posts and comments will be reviewed before posting.
