January

News from the Principal:

 

Happy New Year to our Edge families!

We are so glad to be back after a nice, relaxing    holiday break. We are expecting some frigid temperatures this week and next. With that I need to remind you that if Akron Public closes due to the weather, we will also close. Typically if we are going to close it will be before 6:00 a.m.

Here are a few notes:

Testing:  We have some busy days ahead from now until testing. A new House Bill passed over the   holiday break in the state house has changed the spring reading testing for ALL 3rd graders as the will be taking the OAA paper state assessment in the spring. This test is not new to students as they have already taken the OAA assessment in the fall. We will keep you updated as we know more information.

Awards Ceremonies:  We will be holding our 2nd nine week awards ceremonies on Friday, January 16th. The times are as follows:

2nd and 3rd grades: 8:45 a.m.

K and 1st grades: 9:30 a.m.

4th and 5th grades: 10:30 a.m.

 

We look forward to a wonderful 2015 at The Edge Academy!

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
