Manufacturing Club participated in a manufacturing tour at Zimmer-Biomet on Thursday. Students learned about manufacturing processes and saw how implants are made. Some students saw their parents at work. Edgewood and the Manfucaturing Club sponsors - Mrs. Richcreek and Mrs. Eberhardt - are very appreciative of the time spent with our students!
Students worked in the library during Student Resource Time putting the finishing touches on their projects. Parents and community members are all invited to come watch presentations all next week, being held in our Library Learning Commons. Ask your student for the exact date and time they will be presenting, or contact the school for more information!
The seventh graders have just wrapped up their World War II unit and we spent some time reviewing the Holocaust. In our final activity we read the poem "To the Little Polish Boy Standing with His Arms Up" by Peter L. Fischl and then the students wrote their own letter or poem to the little Polish boy. The goal was to help the students think about compassion for others and, hopefully, make history a little more personal by drawing them deeper into a famous photograph from that time period.
