Dear Edge Academy and Akros Middle School Students, Parents and Guardians,

Winter Festival Flyer

I’m proud to announce that the students of The Edge Academy are putting together an all school Winter Festival! Each grade level has songs to perform to showcase how much they have learned in music class. Our Akros Middle School Drama Club will be performing their play, which they have been rehearsing with enthusiasm!


The shows will start promptly.  On the day of the performance, we ask that you come in through the main doors of The Edge and come straight to the gym without disturbing students in their classrooms.  Children may leave with you when their concert is finished, and there are activities in the cafeteria and common space following our shows.


Students are invited to wear dressy clothes for the performance. Dressy clothes include, but are not limited to, dark colored pants or slacks, khaki pants, skirts, dresses, long sleeved polo shirts, dress shirts, ties, sweaters, cardigans, dress shoes, etc. Shoulders must be covered. Concert clothing does not include jeans, leggings as pants, shirts with words on the front, etc.  Students may wear their uniforms.


This performance is extremely important to the students’ progress in their musical lives. This will not only encourage your student to become more musically active, but also helps your child’s courage, discipline, and pride grow.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to making beautiful music with your child!


Every year the staff at The Edge Academy and Akros MIddle School donates $20 to be able to wear jeans on Fridays during the school year. The staff picks a charity to donate the money to that is making  a difference in the community of Akron. This year the staff decided to donate the funds collected, to Christ Child Charities of Akron. Each year Christ Child Charities of Akron help our families by donating uniforms to students in need. Christ child provides uniform pants, shirts, and often winter coats to over 15 families each year. The staff collected a total of $700 and the funds raised were matched by Dave Dudas the co-founder of The Edge Academy and Akros Middle School for a total donation of $1,400.





Edge Academy is helping readers to grow and experience the love of reading through new books! Many teachers have found generous sponsors so every child in their rooms has a new book to keep every month. This makes such a difference in so many children’s lives and education. They have the joy of receiving a book every month that they can take home, read, and reread. New books are always fun and they help build the students love of reading. Every student looks forward to it and the teachers are filled with excitement and joy as they watch their students receive this treasure from September to May. Last year there were a few classes and this year several more teachers are participating.

This year, all third grade students will be receiving a book each month. These books have been given by a sponsor of "Mrs. Baddeley's Books in the Hands of Kids program". All books are 3rd grade level and will help with fluency, comprehension, and building a love for reading! Thank you to all the sponsors who have given support to this program. It is greatly appreciated by our students and teachers.

Students and their father or father figure , got to come to school and have breakfast together and spend some quality time before school started. The event was a huge success and the students were so excited to show off the school and their dads to the staff members.
