Summer Break and Fall Registration
News
Edgewood Junior High School Faculty and Staff would like to wish everyone a great summer vacation! Please enjoy this time with family and friends.

Here is the schedule for Fall Registration:

Online Registration for returning RBB students will be available starting Wednesday, July 20. Parents should login to their Harmony 3 account and complete all registration forms for their student/s. These forms must be completed before students will be issued a Chromebook at the Chromebook rollout on Thursday, July 28.

Main Office hours will begin Monday, July 25 from 8 am - 3 pm.

Parents of students new to RBB in grades 6-8 should call the Junior High Office on Monday, July 25 to set up a time to come in to the office. We will be meeting with new students on Tuesday, July 26 and Wednesday, July 27, with group sessions scheduled at 8 am, 10 am, 12 noon, and 2 pm each day. Please bring proof of residency, a birth certificate for the student, a record of immunizations for the student, any legal documents concerning custody, and any records from the previous school. This is not for students who attended EIS or Stinesville the previous year. By calling in advance, information will be taken in order to prepare a schedule and assign a locker for the student. Groups will meet briefly with a counselor to go over the schedule and then be given a tour to find classrooms and locker location. Counselors will be available to meet with parents with specific scheduling concerns after the group meetings.

Chromebook rollout for students in grades 6-12 will be held at Edgewood High School from 2-8 pm on Thursday, July 28. Students may pick up their Chromebooks during that time as long as all enrollment forms have been completed online. Computers will be available to complete these forms if needed. If Chromebooks are not picked up at this time, students will be issued their Chromebooks on Thursday, August 4 or Friday, August 5 during school hours.

Schedules and locker assignments for returning students will be available for online viewing starting Friday,  July 29.

Edgewood Junior High will be open from 3-7 pm on Monday, August 1 and Tuesday, August 2 for students and parents who would like to come in to the building to find classrooms and lockers. The building will be closed to parents and students on Wednesday, August 3 to allow teachers time to prepare for the first day of school.

School begins on Thursday, August 4. Welcome back!

Flexibility
News
One of Aesop’s Fables, “The Oak and the Reed,” teaches that it is better to bend than to break.  In this fable, the flexible reed survives because he can bend with the wind, while the mighty oak cannot adapt and is destroyed.  Variants of this fable exist in early Greek and Latin, Judeo-Christian sacred texts, ancient Chinese stories, Chaucer’s early works, as well as French, Italian, and German tales.  These have given rise to common sayings like, “A reed before the wind lives on, while mighty oaks do fall” and “A tree that is unbending is easily broken.”

The value of flexibility has been heralded by cultures around the globe since the beginning of recorded time.  There are few of us who can say we have never had to “roll with the punches” that life deals out. I can honestly say that I would never survive as a teacher or a parent without the ability to honestly reassess and adapt to the situations I find myself in every day, and this takes mental and emotional flexibility.

Particularly when one considers that my 8th graders today will graduate in 2020 and will probably still be working in 2060, the importance of developing the skill of flexibility becomes even clearer.  Who knows what challenges our children today will face in their lifetimes?  When I was in 8th grade 20+ years ago, I didn’t have a cell phone, iPads were science fiction, and we thought scanning bubble sheets were fancy.  

I would never have believed that I would be teaching, not so many years later, in a school where every child held a powerful personal computing device in his or her hands, where research was done at the touch of a button, and instantly contacting someone anywhere in the world was a click or two away.  

While I certainly don’t pretend to know the ways in which our world and the lives of my students will change in the coming years, I do know that being able to adapt effectively in the face of change is a life skill that never becomes obsolete.
