WHAT WE DO

The Parent Council holds a meeting once a month to discuss upcoming events, community needs and fun projects happening at Edison. Thomas Horn, Edison’s principal, delivers an update on school-related business at each meeting. Some meetings also include guest speakers from the community. Parent Council Meetings are an opportunity for parents to become informed about issues or changes taking place  at Edison, as well as to offer a parent perspective on  decisions being made. Parent Council is open to all parents. Please join us.
