Program. Feinstein Junior Scholars make the world a better place. They are ambassadors of good will and do good deeds whenever possible throughout the year
They participate in the fight against hunger in Rhode Island by organizing canned food drives to benefit local community agencies. They contribute good
deed examples for school wide publication twice a year
There are many benefits to being a Feinstein Junior Scholar. Some of those benefits include: positively impacting the lives of others (intrinsic reward)

Dear Edgewood families,
We have many exciting events and happenings during the winter months. Our PBIS team of teachers highlights the students with perfect attendance. Each month students with perfect attendance get to select props and photos are posted on our TV screen in the main lobby.
Currently, we are asking families to help prepare for our Winter Family Night on February 16th. Each grade will provide themed baskets for our raffle on the night of this event. The themed baskets for each grade are:
Kindergarten – Movie Night Grade 1 – Games – Grade 2 – Chocolate Basket – Grade 3 – Arts & Crafts – Grade 4 – Breakfast Basket – Grade 5 – Garden Basket
Students and parents in Grades 3 through 5 will be asked to participate in Surveyworks. The survey is on-line and parents will be provided with a link and a password to complete the survey. The children will complete the survey on-line in school. The purpose of the survey is so that schools can learn how to improve the learning environment for your children. For parents that are unable to complete the survey on-line, we will provide a paper copy. Parents will be able to take the survey from home between February 6th and March 31st.
On March 16th, we will have our annual School Report Math/Science Night. This year we will be adding the Book Fair that evening, as well.

Dear Edgewood Families:
Our school will be having a major face lift this summer our heating and air conditioning system will be replaced with a new modern system. This update will improve our educational climate.
Our action plans for the 2016-2017 school year have been updated, we will continue to use data to differentiated instruction in the area of reading and math. School wide, we will continue to prioritize writing in our classes. Our action plans are posted on the school website. We will continue to support the common core which will help students to become successful digital citizens.
Our list serv for parents was very successful. We hope more parents will join this year. Throughout the year, our family involvement committee will be looking for support and volunteers to help us provide the best educational experiences for our children and their families. Please contact Robin Gervais at the Cranston Family Center
to become more involved, we need your input.
