In a wonderful synergizing effort, the students at Akros Middle School and The Edge Academy collected over 2,000 cans in our first annual can food drive. The students did a wonderful job of bringing in cans and then the middle school lighthouse team helped load all the cans into a donated Penske Truck. The students then went to the Haven of Rest to unload the can food items for donation. The Haven of Rest was very grateful and excited for the donation.

Announcing - 'Parents for Charter Schools'
 
An organization linking charter school parents throughout Ohio
 
Parents will advocate with their 'voices and votes' as part of the newly created Parents for Charter Schools (PCS) -- a 501(c)(4) organization to empower parents with a specific focus on advocating and protecting Ohio public charter schools. PCS partners with the Ohio Coalition for Quality Education - a statewide leadership organization representing all of Ohio's public charter schools. 
 
The PCS network organizes and trains charter school parents from across the state with the purpose of developing Charter Parent Ambassadors (CPA) in every school. 
 
Parents for Charter Schools supports families by linking them with other parents to present a united and powerful 'voice' when working with state legislators, other policymakers and the media.
 
"There are more than 100,000 students being educated at charter schools across Ohio," said PCS Director Ron F. Adler. "Those parents are in the ideal position to know the individual needs of their children - and the best educational setting for them to feel safe and in which to flourish."
 
This parent-driven organization will offer families a 'voice' to: * protect their child's education; * defend their 'right to school choice'; * and, guard the future of their public charter school of choice. 
"My husband and I searched for an online school to fit the immediate medical circumstances of our oldest daughter's needs," explained Lori Spangler, a Charter Parent Ambassador from Newark Digital Academy (NDA).  "NDA is a perfect fit for Sophie and we are grateful. Protecting her education is crucial to us - and Parents for Charter Schools helps put our family back in charge of Sophie's education."
 
PCS seeks to break down barriers that often exist around Ohio's public charter schools.  Advocating at the grassroots level and directly to legislators, parents will fight against legislation and other regulatory 
changes that would hurt their charter school.

Here are just a few things we have done this year in fourth grade!

We had the energize guys come into the school. The 4th grade was very excited to learn about energy and resources. They learned about what could we do to save energy and resources. We learned about sneaky energy that runs up bills with the electric appliance just being plugged in.

We went on a field trip to Ramseyer Farms. The kids got to find their way through a maze, eat fresh potatoes chips, pick pumpkins and potatoes, and even play on a playground made out of all recycled materials.

This year in preparation for the 3rd grade guarantee test, all third grade students and their parents were invited to a meeting in October. Intense test prep packets were given to all students that attended and were offered incentives for working hard and completing the packets on time, as well as earning a passing score. Two of our third graders took on the challenge and made it their goal to qualify for the incentives offered. Congratulations Antony Jones and Jamar McCray! You have demonstrated the qualities of a leader in your academics. 

 

 


 

 The first grade leaders love fun shirt days! We wore pink on Pink Friday for breast cancer awareness and fall shirts on the day of our 1st ever Fall Fest! We also learned how to be proactive with fire safety thanks to the Akron Police Department.

On October 4th the Akron Fire Department came to teach us about fire safety! We got to experience the Akron Fire Safe House. We learned about how to stay safe and keep ourselves from getting injuried by fire. We also got to experience how to escape out a window! Thanks Akron Fire Department for helping us to learn about being safe in case of a fire!
