Fall Break was a busy time for several Edgewood students as they toured Gettysburg and Washington D.C. on the annual fall break trip to Washington D.C. Four students were chosen to participate in the wreath ceremony at the Tomb of the Unkown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetary. If you are a current 7th grader or 7th-grade parent and would like more information on the Gettysburg and Washington D.C. trip scheduled for Fall Break 2020, email Mr. Ringler for details at email@example.com. What a great idea for a Christmas gift, or a great time to save money in order to participate in this once in a lifetime trip!
Mrs. Fisher and Mr. Halferty's 7th grade social studies students have been working on National History Day projects for a month. Language Arts teachers Mr. Cook, Ms. Nelson and Mrs. Thompson have helped students with writing thesis statements and writing paragraphs. Students researched during social studies classes in order to prepare for their writing. Now they are putting projects together with their writing, some great images and quotes, and lots of creativity!
8th grade Language Arts teachers Mrs. Toumey, Mrs. Helser, and Mrs. Beer also sponsor the Edgewood Cares Club. Their 2nd nine weeks event was a fundraiser for Riley Children's Hospital. Students got sponsors for a Friday night read-a-thon raising $1,124! It was a huge success! Way to go, Edgewood Cares!
