Welcome Edison Eagle families. We are so excited to start the new year. My name is Lorri Ledgerwood and I am your child’s school counselor. Edison staff members are dedicated to educating the “whole child.” We recognize that the academic concepts we are trying to teach are learned best when a child’s social, emotional, and health needs are also met. Creating a school family helps us address these needs. Your help as a member of our school team is important, and communication is key. Please plan to attend Orientation on September 10th. Feel free to pop into the office and meet our office staff, and/or talk to your child’s teacher. We look forward to working with your family to meet the educational and other needs of your child here at Edison. Sincerely, Lorri Ledgerwood Edison School Counselor (509) 222-6065
