Happy Fall to Everyone,

month of november turkey

I’d like to begin this month’s newsletter with a HUGE thank you!! The Edge Academy had 96% attendance from students during the first 9 weeks of the school year. This is AWESOME!!! This means that students are here each day, on time and ready to learn.


Don’t forget about our Muffins with Mom celebration to be held on Friday, November 20th from 7:30 a.m. until 8:15 a.m. We look forward to seeing all of the moms bright and early!! We’ll put the coffee on! 


Our school has the expectation that students be in dress code each day when coming to school. Here are a few reminders about dress code:

**No designs in boys’ hair cuts
**Only blue and black pants/skirts/shorts/capris
**Black or brown shoes
**Belts must be worn with waistlines that have belt loops
**Light blue, navy blue and white shirts

Thanks for your help with ensuring that your child/children are dressed accordingly. We aim for all of our leaders to succeed and this is one way that we need your help.

Mrs. Burchfield, Director & The Edge Academy Staff

Please join us on the morning of Friday, November 20th for annual Muffins with Mom event in the Library.

This is a great morning to spend with your child and enjoying a little breakfast with them!

Hope to see you there! 




The 2015-2016 school year brings with it since 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!
