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.

Honor Roll Reception dates for first quarter will at 8:00 a.m.:

November 7th for 7th grade

November 9th for 8th grade

School pictures were handed out Friday for those who ordered them.  If you did not order but would like to see your student's picture, that is now an option.  Each student has a unique code for viewing pictures, with an option to order if you would like.  Papers with the unique code were offered to students on Friday.  If your student did not bring home that yellow paper with the unique code, the papers are available in the library.  You can send your student to get your copy, or you may pick your copy up during Parent Teacher Conferences.

Warsaw Community Schools are moving to same-day eLearning Days for the 2018-2019 school year.  This means that if school is cancelled, eLearning assignments will be posted on the day of the cancellation as opposed to assignments being posted on a Saturday.  Please refer to the frequently asked questions below for more details about eLearning Days for the 2018-2019 school year.

Q - What is the general plan for eLearning Days for the 2018-2019 school year?

A - If we have a cancellation day in the first grading period, we will hold a make-up Saturday just like last year. Starting in the second grading period, we will do same-day eLearning Days on the day of the cancellation.

Q - When will lessons be posted on a same-day eLearning Day?
A - If the cancellation was called by 6:00 a.m. or the previous night, the lessons should be posted by 9:00 a.m. If WCS started with a two-hour delay that turned into a cancellation, lessons should be posted by 11:00 a.m.

Q - Where can students/parents find eLearning Day lessons?
A - Lessons will be posted on the individual school web pages at http://www.warsaw.k12.in.us

Q - When is the work due for each learning day?
A - eLearning Day assignments are due three school days after the eLearning Day at 11:59 p.m. For example, if the eLearning Day occurs on a Friday, students will need to turn in assignments by 11:59 p.m. on following Wednesday evening.

Q - Can iPads go home in grades K-4? How will teachers know to send them home?
A - Permission slips have been created that the parent will sign once to provide consent for the iPad to come home all year for eLearning Days. If weather reports indicate that approaching weather creates a possibility for a cancellation the following day, WCS will send out an email to all staff alerting of the possibility of an eLearning Day.

Q - How many eLearning Days can we have in a row?
A - The maximum number of eLearning Days we will have in a row is three (3). If we have three days in a row, the work will be due three school days from the date of the eLearning Day. For example, if we miss a Wednesday, Thursday, and a Friday, the assignments will be due at 11:59p.m. on the following Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, respectively.

Q - If an eLearning day occurs on a secondary block day, do students only do periods according to the block day or all seven? Do lessons need to be current with what is being taught in class? What about elementary specials? How long do eLearning assignments need to be?
A - The Indiana Department of Education believes that the learning for an eLearning day should reflect what would have taken place in the classroom if school was in session that day. Therefore, the same schedule will be followed as the day that is being missed. Students would have assignments in the classes they would have attended and in the elementary, will only complete assignments for specials they would have attended. All lessons should reflect content that would have been covered that day in both scope and length.

Q - Will schools be open before and after school to help those students without Internet access?
A - Yes. One computer lab or the media center should be staffed and open in each school before/after school for one hour on each of the three school days following an eLearning Day. Students can also visit businesses with free Internet access, the public library, and our wireless bubble extends outside all of our school buildings. Finally, WCS has some mobile Internet hotspots that can be checked out from the school media center.
