Science biome PDF Print E-mail



In science lab our 5th graders were required to do a project at home. The topic was their favorite biome (tropical rain forest, desert, etc). The students could choose to make a poster or a diorama showing their biome including plants, animals, and a suitable background.  The students were also required to do some research about their biome and find out basic information like average temperature range and average precipitation for their biome. They did a great job!


Leaders in Stride PDF Print E-mail



Well, we are off to the races!!  Our first group of students journeyed out to Mirage Stables last Thursday for the first meeting with Miss Loralea, Miss Sam, Miss Hilary, Jimmy and Dora from Hooves & Healing Strides.  Every second of that cold Thursday morning was a success!  There will be 4 sessions for each group of students focusing on the following concepts: Respect, Relationship Skills & Boundaries, Empathy and Choices and Consequences.  We were able to develop these lessons based on The Power Tools for Life from EAGALA and combine them with the 8 Habits, which was incredibly exciting for both organizations.


Our first visit was so fulfilling for the students.  They were beaming at every interaction the horses had with them.  They learned how to read body language and communicate and how their choices of communication can affect their relationships with not only the horses, but with everyone around them.  Jimmy and Dora (our new horse friends) were amazingly curious about us and spent lots of time checking us out...almost as much as we did them! We look forward to giving you more updates in the future!


Muffins with mom PDF Print E-mail

On the chilly morning of Friday, November 15th, we had a remarkable turnout for our Annual Muffins with mom event!  It was such a joy to see so many moms come into the school to enjoy a breakfast with their students.  We truly look forward to this event every year and are so happy to seeing it grown from year to year!  Thank you again for all of your support and dedication to our Edge family!



Rock’N’Roll Hall of Fame PDF Print E-mail



On November 7th, the 5th grade students of The Edge Academy, traveled to the infamous Rock'N'Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.  What an amazing opportunity to witness such a diverse collection of music history...and so close to home!!  The students thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip, taking particular time to check out the Michael Jackson display, along with the history of hip-hop and rap.  Who could ask for a better day!  This is quickly becoming a field trip the students really look forward too!

Another Great Start! PDF Print E-mail


 Welcome everyone!  It's hard to believe, but we are just wrapping up the first quarter of the school year!  This is school year is off to a great start and it's wonderful to see all of our leaders working hard in their classes.   Parent Teacher Conferences will be October 22-24, 2013 until 5pm daily.  Please watch for information from your student's teacher regarding scheduling specific times.

Also, new this year, teachers have the opportunity to create their own website for their classrooms.  As teachers develop their website, links will be added to the main Edge website.  This will be a great way to keep up-to-date on the happenings in the classrooms! 

All Stars!! PDF Print E-mail



 On a recent visit from the Ohio Coalition for Quality Education, both The Edge Academy and Akros Middle School were presented with the distinction of being "All-Star" School.  Our visitors, Ms. Sue Westendorf and Ms. Beth Lear, from the OCQE, enjoyed touring both schools to see all of the learning and leadership occurring in our buildings.  We are all so proud of the hard work of our students, staff and parents.  Educating the future is definitely a team effort and we couldn't do it without you!

Ramseyer Farms PDF Print E-mail




On a chilly fall day, the 4th grade traveled to Ramseyer Farms in Wooster.  The first thing the students enjoyed was the Ohio corn maze.  Throughout the maze, students had to answer Ohio history questions and locate 6 Ohio rivers.  After lunch, the students had an opportunity to pick a pumpkin and potato to take home.  The picture shows the 4th grade waiting for the presentation on growing potatoes and pumpkins, where they got to taste homemade potato chips.  The day ended with visiting with the animals and playing on the slides.  Overall, even with the chill in the air, it was another great visit to Ramseyer and learning opportunity for our Edge students!
