What an Amazing Mural!

Our new mural located in the stairwell at EMS is nearly complete! The goal of this mural is to instill positive values within our students as well as to brighten up our hallways. The mural reads: "Some kids are smarter than you. Some kids have cooler clothes than you. Some kids are better at sports than you, IT DOESN'T MATTER!" You have your thing too. Be the kid who can get along. Be the kid who is generous. Be the kid who is happy for other people. Be the kid who does the right thing. BE THE NICE KID!"

Results of the Food Drive for the EMA Food Pantry in Trenton

It was a terrific effort by the students & staff. 3,166 canned food items were donated for the EMA Food Pantry! Everyone was so excited to see the school bus fill up with food over the 2 week food drive. Congratulations to the “Bears” House who won the contest by collecting 1,053 items! While the other three Houses made a significant contribution to the food drive (Wolves donated 824 items, Foxes collected 700 items, and the Owls brought in 589 items), their House Leaders had to kiss a pig for not achieving the greatest number of items donated. Even Principal Slamer showed his support & kissed a pig! It was a lot of fun for a great cause! Thanks to everyone who donated to this great fundraiser for our community. All the food donations were taken to the EMA Food Pantry on December 17 in time for the holidays.

Some items that can be donated include: soup, canned veggies, canned fruit, tuna, ketchup, peanut butter, jelly, mustard, Ramen noodles, rice, mac and cheese, cereal, instant oatmeal, and spaghetti.

Mrs. Brown Presents at OMLA & Conducts 1st Music Fest

Mrs. Alaura Brown, Edgewood Middle School math teacher, spoke at the Ohio Middle Level Association Conference in Sandusky, Ohio in October that over 900 teachers attended. She was one of 100 speakers at this year’s event. Mrs. Brown spoke on Gamification, which is a new area in education. Her presentation focused on how to incorporate interactive, high interest gamification elements such as leader boards and badges into the classroom. This new approach in education incorporates game elements into a non-game setting. It leads to elevated engagement and increased motivation in nearly all students. Mrs. Brown was also responsible for hosting Edgewood’s first Music Fest on November 16. This event focused on investigating the relationship and history between mathematics and music. Over 50 student-musicians from Edgewood Middle School and Edgewood High School attended the interactive event.
