Principal Letter

Welcome from Mr. Graef

Dear Edison Students, Parents & Community;

It is an honor to say that I have been the principal of Edison Elementary since 2007 and educator at this school since 1996.

We are looking forward to having a fantastic year at Edison! We’ll be using Thinking Maps and 200 brand new computers to help our students become awesome writers. We’ll also have a brand new after school club that will be devoted to writing: The Young Authors’ Club.

We’re also looking forward to kicking off our third year as a Leader in Me school with the creation of a student leadership club: Student Lighthouse Team. Plus our STEM club will begin using their computer programming skills to write code for robots.

We have an amazing staff of committed teachers who are continually looking for ways to enrich the lives of our students and make a difference in their lives.

At Edison, we pride ourselves on:
• Building Readers and Leaders
• Engaging all our students
• Positive student, staff, and community relations
• Intervention support services
• Working in collaborative Professional Learning Communities (PLC) teams

We work hard to improve our students and ourselves and encourage you to join our school community as we focus both on teaching the core academic areas as well as nurturing leadership skills in each child that will prepare him or her for success in the 21st century.

If you are new to our community, I invite you to visit our school or schedule a tour.

Mr. Fred Graef
Principal, Edison School
