Happy Summer to everyone
I hope this letter finds our students rested and enjoying some “sharpening the saw” time. We are looking forward to this school year that will begin in a few short weeks.
This letter is being sent to every kindergarten through fifth grade parent of students who will be attending The Edge Academy for the 2016-2017 school year. There are some very important dates to share with you. First and foremost we will be hosting the annual Open House on Monday, August 15th from 4:00-6:00 p.m. with the parent meeting beginning at 4:00 p.m. in the Edge gym. We will be discussing our Leader in Me implementation and the effects it continues to provide for our students!! Your children will also be able to meet his/her classroom teacher and visit their classroom. You will also be able to check the bus schedules as well. Please make every effort to attend this open house so that you are aware of important events being held throughout the school year. We will also be discussing some new tests that the students will be taking this year. **Attention 3rd grade parents: Students will need to pass the state READING test in order to be promoted to 4th grade.
The first day of school is scheduled for Wednesday, August 17th. The classes are full this year with a lengthy waiting list, therefore, if your child does not attend school the first 3 days of school they will be removed from the class roster on Friday.
You will receive the yellow bussing postcards approximately two weeks before the beginning of school. Any bussing questions should be directed to Peterman at (330)773-4222.
We look forward to seeing you at Open House.
Mrs. Christina Burchfield, Director

Edge and Akros students participated in the "Pennies for Patients" campaign this month.
Look at all of the money we have collected to help children with Lymphoma and Leukemia. Our life skills students are taking a trip to Giant Eagle to get a final count of how much we raised. Thank you to all who participated.

The 2015-2016 school year brings with it serious changes to our technology in the school! All students now have access to Google Chrome accounts, which means they can access their work from any computer, phone or tablet with internet access. This allows both teachers and students to use technology in a capacity that we have not been able to do so far!
Along with that, we are now using Chromebooks throughout both buildings. This morning, our 5th grade class was utilizing the Chromebook mobile lab to work on Reading Plus. We are so proud of the hard work our teachers and students are putting forth, keep up the great work everyone!
