Principal's Message

From the Principal

October 2018


I have appreciated the warm welcome to the Edison Community over my first few weeks at the school and in Alameda Unified.  Evident to me are the efforts the entire school community undertakes to show caring and understanding.  This has taken many forms:

  • The Edison community takes care of ourselves:  Students work hard to reach their fullest potential, as well as using Lifelong Guideline skills such as Responsibility, Effort and .  Teachers at Edison use a caring, yet structured approach in guiding and facilitating student learning and achievement.
  • The Edison community takes care of others:  Our school, district and community all support the idea that Everyone Belongs Here.  The PTA Diversity and Inclusion committee oversees the Edison ChangeMakers program, guiding our students in recognizing and honoring the efforts of those that work to better the lives of others.
  • The Edison community takes care of our school, community and our world:  Our school’s strong volunteer base, including PTA and its numerous active committees, School Site Council, Dad’s Club and individual volunteers put in thousands of hours each year in building a positive and rich school environment for our students to learn in.  The school’s Go Green Team helps raise awareness of how we all can minimize our impact on the environment.  And many other groups work tirelessly at efforts in growing a positive school climate.

I look forward to working with the Edison staff, students, families and community to building on the great accomplishments that the school has already undertaken.  Remember, Edison students Otter Be safe, responsible, and respectful!  Everyone belongs here!
