Edgewood Highland-Feinstein Leadership School Update
at Edgewood Highland participate in the Feinstein Junior Scholar
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)
receiving Junior Scholar Cards which include free admission to amazing places,
ncluding Mystic Aquarium, (extrinsic reward) , a free t-shirt and college schol
ties. In the spring our students will be going to Mystic Aquarium
The bus to be paid for by the Feinstein Foundation and their Feinstein Junior scholar Cards afforded them free admission.

The theme for school year 2016-2017 “Always be humble and kind!” We currently are sharing our kind deeds on our “kindness garland” that is strung in the lobby.
We have used the donated funds to purchase items which will benefit the entire learning community
So far, we have purchased 25 Chrome Book computers, two 70 inch large screen TV’s for classroom lessons and mini laptops to be. We also updated our computer lab with new computers and chairs. We are very grateful to Mr. Feinstein and his organization for their continued support of Edgewood Highland. Mr. Feinstein is certainly humble and kind!!!

Dear Edgewood families,
Edgewood got a complete facelift this summer. Our entire heating/air-conditioning system was replaced. This will ensure better air quality throughout the building. Funds for this were through the Efficient Building Fund.
Please follow Edgewood on Twitter. I am asking staff, family and students to join at Marlene Gamba@gamba_mgamba. Currently, we have 64 followers. If we reach over 100, I will provide the students with a DJ party during school time, so follow Edgewood on Twitter!
We had a good turnout at our first PTO meeting. PTO co-chairpersons are Laura Kline and Adrienne D’Arconte. Jon Weining chairs cultural arts and Mandy Faust chairs fundraising. We will be looking for volunteers for our Fall Harvest Festival on Thursday, November 10th.
Our school-wide focus this year continues to be in the area of writing with a concentration on students responding to a prompt based on their reading assignments. We, especially, want students to become critical readers. Students are being introduced to Eureka, a new math program. Parents have requested more information and we plan to provide our parents with a workshop in the near future.

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
