Over 120 seniors participated in the first annual Edgewood High School Senior Service Day on April 29. The purpose of this event directly ties to Edgewood’s Strategic Plan. The goal of the Senior Service Day is to engage stakeholders to take action that will promote Edgewood City Schools to parents and the community while connecting with current students, attracting future ones, and successfully engaging staff members. Mr. Geygan was inspired to create a community service experience in which all high school seniors could participate. His vision is to hold this event every spring and possibly include the entire high school student population in years to come. “This experience could not have been possible without the support of our high school staff and student-leaders. These individuals believe in the importance of making a difference through servant-hood and compassion for our community and our district. I’m so proud to see how excited our seniors were to be a part of this event. The results of their hard work, energy, and effort was truly inspiring,” said Geygan.
Working in partnership with the City of Trenton, Seven Mile Elementary School, and Babeck Early Childhood Center, multiple teams of students were able to assist with a variety of projects. Students who were assigned to the Seven Mile Elementary School assisted with designing and painting new games on the playground, spreading mulch around playground equipment, and painting the curbs along the school drive. The Community Park, on Dell Drive in Trenton, benefited from numerous improvements. Students worked for several hours spreading mulch around the park entrance and playground areas, assisting with repairs to the park fence and picnic areas, picking up trash, and weeding flower beds. At Babeck, EHS seniors who plan on pursuing an education degree, spent time in the classroom with preschool, kindergarten, and first grade students. They assisted with crafts, reading, and other projects with the students.
Our EES 2nd Graders were challenged to select a famous person in history as part of their English curriculum. Each students spent time researching the character and then wrote a biography about the person they selected. Then they created a face board to wear during the Wax Museum event. As parents, staff, and other students walked through the Wax Museum, they could stop and press the student's "Press Here" button. When this happened, it brought the "character" to life! The student recited the facts they learned during their research so the participant could hear interesting information about the character they had chosen for the Wax Museum.
Edgewood City Schools District was selected by Canon Solutions of America to share information about the experience we've had with using Canon copiers throughout our schools and offices. Edgewood installed Canon copiers in the fall of 2017 and the performance and reliability of these devices have noticeably improved productivity for our staff members along with fewer breakdowns and repairs. Likewise, our district has experienced a cost savings by using Canon copiers verses the previous brand of copiers. This video is being used by Canon as a promotional tool. We appreciate the participation of many staff and students who participated in this video.Uploaded Apr 26, 2019
