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.

Please let the office know as soon as possible, if you have had a change of address or custody change.

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.

The Edge Academy and Akros Middle School held there annual breakfast with the boys on March 15th. This year’s theme was superhero. 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.
