EMS students and staff donated over 650 items for the care packages, handmade 500 paracord bracelets, which are extremely useful in survival or emergency situations, and wrote over 150 Thank You cards and letters of encouragement. Students and staff assembled the care packages and shipped them out before the end of the school year. The total weight of all the packages exceeded 100 pounds! This school-wide project was part of PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) initiative launched this year. Student participated in multiple projects and activities which reinforced Edgewood’s Character Traits and expectations throughout the year.

Our students had the opportunity to visit Jungle Jim's and saw a side of this business that few ever know about!

Students were impressed to learn how important math, geography, languages, and other subjects are required to work at Jungle Jim's.
