Dear Parents/Guardians:

It’s hard to believe that our students have already begun their second quarter at Thomas Edison High School! We continue to work diligently to ensure that all of our students are successful in school. Parent involvement is crucial for academic success. We want to partner with all of our parents/guardians to help support our students throughout their high school career.

In commemoration of Native American Parent Involvement Day, Thursday, November 20th, we are inviting you to join us for refreshments throughout the school day in room 102. Parents are also welcome to attend the Indian Education Group which will be held on Tuesday, November 18th 10:30-11:15 a.m. in room 10.

There are several ways parents/guardians can be involved throughout the school year:

·      Attend grade specific parent meetings

o   Meeting notifications are mailed home, included in our Weekly Update that is emailed to parents, information is posted on our school website, and reminder phone calls are also sent home.

o   In order to facilitate contact, we ask that parents provide us with the most current contact information (address, home and cell phone numbers, and email address).

·      Join our parent driven group, Tommie Boosters, formerly known as Edison’s Parent Group

o   Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month from 6:00-7:30 p.m.

o   The boosters are currently working on planning a Senior All Night Party, fundraising, and recruiting future Tommies!

o   Snacks are provided.

·      Sign up for Parent Portal

o   This is a great online tool for you to have access to your student’s grades, homework assignments, attendance, transcripts, and much more!

o   We ask that you provide us with your email address to ensure we can give you access to parent portal.

·      Attend Parent Teacher Conferences

o   Our conferences will be held on Thursday, February 12th from 4:00-8:00 p.m. and/or Friday, February 13th from 11:00-3:00 p.m.

·      Stay Informed- Minneapolis Public Schools

o   Indian Education information is available on MPS district website: http://indianed.mpls.k12.mn.us/

o   For more information regarding Area A/Zone 1 Parent and Community Meetings contact: Joceyln Beard, Community Liaison, 612.516.0901 jocelyn.beard@mpls.k12.mn.us

 

We look forward to continuing this journey with you and your student. Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions. We want to work with all our parents/guardians to continue making Thomas Edison High School a great place to be and learn!

Sincerely,
