eLearning Day Information for Secondary Parents

The first eLearning Day for 2017‐2018 for Warsaw Community Schools will take place on
Saturday, February 17, 2018. This day and March 17th have been scheduled to make up school
days that have been missed due to dangerous weather conditions. Making up lost
instructional time in this manner allows students to be dismissed for the summer in late May as opposed to June.

the assignments to be completed or links to commonly used learning tools such as Canvas.
The assignments may be completed on the actual eLearning Day or may be completed and
turned in any time prior to the start of school on the following Thursday, February 22, 2018.
Completion of the assignments will allow the student to be counted as in attendance on the
eLearning Day. Any student who fails to turn in the assignments by the deadline will be counted absent for the eLearning Day.

On the eLearning Day, teachers may be contacted by email or other established means of
communication with any questions about assignments. Additionally, a technology support line
will be available for any general technology questions by calling 574‐371‐5088 from

Each nine weeks, students have the opportunity to nominate an adult teacher or staff member who has made a difference in their lives.
Pictured are many of the teachers nominated by students during the third nine weeks.
All teachers are pleased to work with our students, and it means so much to know we are making a difference. 
We want our parents to know that your children are also making a difference in our lives. We love our Edgewood students!

Edgewood Middle School

Tiger Head

Dear Edgewood Parents,

We are excited to announce the start to the school year will be Monday, August 15, 2016.  If your children are riding the bus to school, you should be getting a letter from transportation about the pick up time for Monday morning.  Bus traffic will enter and exit on Logan.  If you are driving your student to school, please enter the front lot from Union Street.  Parent drop off will be in the front of the school.  Staff will be there to welcome you.

Buses will unload at 7:20 a.m. and all students will gather in the commons.  There will be staff handing out student schedules and maps.  Breakfast will be served and the bell will then ring at 7:35 for students to move to their first class.  Staff will be available to give directions and guide students.  

Students need to bring basic supplies to school including pencil, pen, paper, trapper keeper and/or book bag.  The bookstore supplies will be available the first day of school.  Most likely we will have a table set up in the commons if students need to purchase locks or other supplies.  iPads are scheduled to be distributed Monday afternoon.  

We hope to have a student assembly on the football field at 8:30 Monday morning.  We will go through the daily bell schedule, announce lunch shifts before 5th period and finish the day at 2:45.  Parent pick up will be lined up out front, coming in off of Union Street.  Please do not park in the faculty parking lot.  Simply get in the line and we will remind your students to quickly get into cars so we can keep the traffic moving.  Buses should depart by 2:50.  We have assistance from the WPD to make this transition run smoothly.

We will host a parent meeting Monday, August 22 at 6:30 p.m.  We will also host an open house once the construction is fully complete.  Lockers will be installed in January and we will make arrangements for coat storage as the weather cools down.  Both locker rooms will be available and this most likely will be recommended storage for coats.

The building should be completed by January 2017.  In the meantime, we will be providing construction updates in our daily announcements.  We appreciate everyone’s help, support and understanding during our renovation project.  We are going to have an amazing school when it is finished, but just so you know, it is already an incredible place for learning, even during construction.  If you have any questions, please let us know.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility during this great transformation at Edgewood!!!

We also enjoyed some pain (bread) and some jus d'orange during her visit. She was interactive and dynamic, and the students enjoyed listening to her

Mr. Howett's science classes tested surface tension today.  They tested with two pennies, one with vaseline smeared on top and one regular penny.  One penny held more water than the other.  Can you guess which one it was?

This week students in Mr. Devlin and Mr. Howard's 8th grade social studies classes are presenting their National History Day projects. This year the projects focus on "leadership" and "legacy." The students research a significant person from history and then create a formal presentation. They then take part in the peer review process at the end of the presentations. Four groups took part in the regional competition in South Bend. One group placed first and the three other groups tied for third. All four groups will move on to the state competition.

On Saturday February 7, seven Edgewoood students competed in the Indiana State School Music Association's Solo and & Ensemble Contest held at Carroll High School in Ft Wayne. With the guidance of their teacher, the students selected music for either a solo or for an ensemble ( 3 or more members) and performed their selection for a judge. While the students were performing, the judge provided written comments on 9 different music captions. After their performance, the students were then awarded their medals. "I was very proud of the students that performed at contest. All the students performing a solo had the opportunity to work with a piano accompanist and the students that performed in an ensemble showed great teamwork. All students have improved because of their preparation for this contest," stated Joseph Peloza, Middle School Band Director.

The students that competed at contest were:
Chloe Romack: solo Gold
Carly O'Hara: solo Gold
Isaac Neeley: solo Gold
Jarett Orr: solo Gold
Phoebe Schmidt: solo Gold
Chloe Romack, Hannah Slabaugh, Vanessa DeAngel, & Mckenzie: ensemble Gold

Upcoming events for the Edgewood Bands will include a concert on Tuesday March 10 at 7:00 pm in the Lakeview Auditorium and a performance at the ISSMA Organizational Contest held at North Manchester Jr./Sr. High School. The public is always encouraged to attend these free events.

Check out An Art Teacher's Brag Page S Johnson EMS on facebook. I have created a facebook page to promote Edgewood's talented student artists. Many of these students start my class insisting that they can't draw, let alone paint! I make it my mission to change their mindset. My hope is that all my students will at least enjoy the creative process by the time they have finished their nine week rotation.
