Our second graders were able to experience what it was like to live in the past and see many artifacts from the past. They learned about pioneer life, making brooms, chores that children were required to do,how butter and cheese was made, how candles were made, how wool from sheep was turned in to clothing and blankets.

The students in Mrs. Burchfield's reading group have been reading about a coconut in one of their stories.  So, to make the experience complete...we had the fun of opening and tasting a coconut!  It was quite the experience for everyone!


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!

The kindergarteners are learning about the life cycle of a butterfly. They have six caterpillars that are currently transitioning into their chrysalis. The students are tracking their progress through pictures and sentences in journals.

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!


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!

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!
