Kwanzaa PDF Print E-mail

Mrs. Knight's Kindergarten and Ms. Moran's 5th graders synergize to create traditional Kwanzaa mats. The Kindergarten students have been studying different holidays in December. During the unit on Kwanzaa the students learned that Kwanzaa means "first fruits" and they learned the importance of the Kwanzaa mat (the mkeka) throughout the celebration!

Happy November PDF Print E-mail


Fall is in the air as we see the rustling of leaves from the trees. With the autumn winds come cold, briskTurkey
temperatures. Please remember to dress your children appropriately with additional layers as needed. We will be outside for recess as long as the temperature is above 32 degrees. It is helpful to identify articles of clothing when they are labeled with names of who they belong!!


We just celebrated the first 9 weeks awards with the students! Many students received recognition for the attendance as well as Honor or Merit Roll. The Edge Academy had a record attendance for the 9 weeks at 96%!!!! This is AWESOMESmile. We attribute this to having excellent parents and students who place emphasis on being at school every day!!Thank you, thank you, thank you!!


We have many events happening between November and December! Be sure to watch for information from the teachers or check the website to keep updated.


I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends. May this be a time of reflection for those things we are most thankful.


Mrs. Burchfield, Director & The Edge Academy Staff

Principals Lunch PDF Print E-mail


At The Edge Academy, Mrs. Burchfield selects one student a quarter for her Principal's Award.

Principals Lunch


The criteria for this honor are striving for personal success as a friend, student and leader in our school. There is always one student, who she is able to see in all areas of the school, holding their personal expectations of themselves so high that it is clear to all those around them. In the spring of 2014, Mrs. Burchfield selected Chloe Furman.


Chloe is a true gentle soul who works hard to support and help everyone around her, along with personally working very hard to achieve her academic goals. So, upon returning to school this fall, Mrs. Burchfield asked her to select someone who she would want to take to lunch with her as her reward for her hard work. Chloe excitedly selected her brother, Micaiah, another fabulous leader of our school. So, on a warm fall day, Mrs. Burchfield and her guests enjoyed a delicious lunch from Luigi's as a special treat! We are looking forward to meeting the next Principal's Award recipient. Congratulations again Chloe!
