Edgewood High School Virtual Academy News

On November 22nd, the Virtual Academy staff and students collaborated with SME, EMS, and EES to collect canned goods for the Mt. Olivet Church food pantry.

The Virtual Academy would like to thank Ms. Hunt and all of the schools for their contributions to this great cause!

Babeck 1st grade students just finished a unit on landforms and pilgrims. They learned about different landforms that are around the world. They learned about how the pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians lived long ago. They were able to find similarities and differences between then and now. They also created a village to represent the homes of what it might have looked like. They joined the rest of the Babeck student body in celebrating a Thanksgiving Feast (Charlie Brown style) on Tuesday before break.

Edgewood High School Shadow a student Challenge

In November several Edgewood High School staff members participated in Shadow a Student Challenge. The goal of the activity was for staff members to participate in the day to day activities of a student. Staff was encouraged to take tests, participate in elective classes like gym and choir, and eat lunch with their shadow student in the cafeteria. Students and staff enjoyed the shadow day as the high school continues to focus on the 3 R’s (Rigor, Relationships, and Relevance). Another Shadow a Student Challenge Day will be scheduled for second semester.
