Edgewood students and staff are busy with our annual canned food drive!  Expect your students to be coming home asking you to go to the store tonight to pick up needed supplies to help their class accumulate points and to help our community!  Extra points are awarded daily for items such as canned fruit and laundry detergent.  Students and staff are also asking for help at our local Owens stores.  We will be at both stores most evenings from 4-7 and Saturdays from 10-5 through December 15.  Please help us as we work to enrich the lives of others!

As we prepare for the first quarter honor roll reception, we wanted to share important information about the Edgewood honor roll program.  We will be following the Cum Laude system for recognition.  This system is based on a 4 point scale and will have three levels of recognition.  This is the same GPA recognition system being used at the high school.  Each student's quarterly GPA will be calculated and the following grade point system will be used: 

Cum Laude:  3.5 - 3.69  These students will receive an honor roll certificate.

Magna Cum Laude:  3.7 - 3.89  These students will receive a silver lantern and an honor roll certificate with a silver honors sticker.

Summa Cum Laude:  3.9 - 4  These students will receive a gold lantern and an honor roll certificate with a gold honors sticker.

Warsaw Community Schools will present parents with an opportunity to learn more about the effects of raising children during a digital age. The film, titled “Screenagers” is directed by Delaney Rutson, M.D. The movie will be followed by a special panel hosted by WCS staff to further equip parents and discuss important points from the film. The event will take place 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12, at the Warsaw Performing Arts Center located at 1 Tiger Lane, Warsaw, Indiana.

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might impact their development. As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction.

Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with insights from authors, psychologists and brain scientists, the film reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.

Topics discussed in the film include: How do personal digital devices affect school life; how does social media affect our relationships; how does screen use affect children’s development; and how vulnerable are we to video game addiction and depictions of violence.

Screenagers is about the impact of the digital age on children and how to help families minimize harmful effects and find balance. After seeing the film, people tell us that they feel more confident and better equipped to establish balance around screen time. Please note, seventh grade students will watch the film in class at both Edgewood Middle School and Lakeview Middle School.
