Next week during #NationalManufacturingWeek, all 8th grade students will begin @OrthoworxINC's new initiative, #DiscoverME, which will teach students about the high paying and in-demand careers available in manufacturing. In addition, Edgewood 8th grade students will tour local manufacturers @DePuySynthes and @Precision Medical Technologies.
Blosser's Studio will be taking school pictures on Friday, September 14. Every student will be photographed on that day. Online ordering is available at Blossersstudio.com. Click on the icon that says "Click Here to Order Fall School Portraits for your Student" You may order online at any time, or have your student bring the paper order form on the day that pictures will be taken. A Retake day will take place for students who were absent or for students who ordered a packet and are not satisfied with the results. Any questions should be directed to Blosser's at 574-267-5400, or email at blossersstudion.com
Edgewood is trying a new homework policy this year. Students should have homework in no more than two classes per night, and assignments should take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Here is our schedule:
Mondays: 8th grade math, 8th grade history, 7th grade math, and 7th grade English language arts. Tuesdays: 8th grade English language arts, 8th grade science, 7th grade science, and 7th grade social studies Wednesdays/Thursdays: 8th grade math, 8th grade science, 8th grade English language arts, 7th grade science, 7th grade math, 7th grade English language arts, and all electives Fridays: 8th grade science, 7th grade English language arts
Remember that on Wednesdays and Thursdays we have block schedules. Wednesdays students have 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th periods. Thursdays students have 2nd, 4th, and 6th periods. It looks like there could be lots of homework, but students should only have half of the classes listed above on Wednesday, the other half on Thursday.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your child's teachers. Their emails are listed under the Academics tab here on our website.
