Congratulations Lauren L for winning the 2012 "Why Mom Deserves a Diamond" contest. Selected from the thousands of poems from Orange County, Lauren won her mother a quarter carat diamond for her submission in the 6th-12th grade category. On Saturday, February 25th, The Gallery of Diamonds held a ceremony for the participants, mothers and teachers, where the two winners read their 22-word poem out-loud.
Blossoms envy her lovely face,
with features delicate as lace,
stars imitate her radiant eyes,
but nothing matches her heart in size.
2nd Grade & Fractions
Mrs. Kaneski's second graders using math manipulatives(fraction strips) to reduce fractions to their simplest form. Hard stuff! But not for these students!
Edgewood's Character Counts program is designed to help students learn good character skills that will help them be positive contributors to our society. We want to help our students learn how to interact in appropriate ways with each other. As a part of this program, we are going to host Mr. Mike Dreiblatt, author of "How to Stop Bullying and Social Aggression" and national speaker, to talk about bullying with our K to 8th grade students. On March 13th, Mr. Dreiblatt will be meeting with students to talk about bullying. He will also do training with the staff after school and will meet with parents in the evening. We believe this program will be beneficial to all our students and help us learn how to build positive character here on our campus.
