6th Grade to Bowers Museum6th to Bowers Museum 2012

On Tuesday, February 7th, the 6th grade class went to the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana and explored the Warriors, Tombs and Temples: China's Enduring Legacy. The students were captivated by the tour that guided them through three of China's most influential dynasties. Also, the students were able to go to the Kidseum to create Clay Warriors. The 6th grade class had a great time and it was a great ending to their studies of China's history.


Great News!

The third graders entered the Department of Boating and Waterways, 2012 Safe & Wise Poster Contest. This was the first year Edgewood has entered the contest. The 3rd graders entered about 4 months ago and had begun to think they didn't win anything. However, in the mail last Friday was the announcement that four students were finalists:

Nicholas M., Deniz I., Jeya S. and Jordan H.

Congratulations to these finalists!


Edgewood Campus Open House
Friday, February 24th
We are all looking forward to this year's Open House!  From preschool to 8th grade, everyone is busy finishing their Open House projects to show off to parents and friends.
From the Fairmont Blog February 6, 2012:  
Open House season is here!  That means it's time for students and their teachers to "show off" everything that has been going on since school started in the fall.  No one loves Open House more than moms and dads who can't wait to be wowed by all of the incredible work on display. With that in mind, here are a few Dos and Don'ts to get the most out of your Open House experience.
DO let your child guide you around the classroom and campus to any special displays or presentations. Pay special attention as he or she shares personal work with you. This is a precious opportunity to say "great job" and to reinforce the life lesson that hard work pays off.
DON'T compare your child's work with that of his or her classmates. Every child is unique with his or her own strong suits.  I know it's tempting to wonder out loud why your child's handwriting isn't as neat as Susie's, but now is not the time. If something really concerns you, schedule a conference to talk it over with your child's teacher.
DO make a point of praising your child's teacher.  Let him or her know how great the room looks and how impressed you are with all of the student work on display.  Open House is a big night for teachers, who,  don't get enough kudos for all that they do.  Let your child's teacher know how much you appreciate his or her hard work in preparation of Open House and throughout the year.
DON'T pull your child's teacher aside for an impromptu conference.  You'll put the teacher in an awkward position, and you won't get his or her undivided attention.  If something is on your mind, plan to discuss it at a more appropriate time.
DO visit other classrooms including the rooms of teachers in the next grade up from your child's current grade.  This is a wonderful time for you and your child to check out what it's like to "move-up" to the next grade.  You'll also have an opportunity to meet art, music, science lab and other specialty teachers and find out a little more about what goes on in these programs.
DON'T forget to bring your camera so you can post some awesome pictures on Facebook the day after the big night!
