Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School students honored those who died and those who were affected by 9/11 with a tribute and commemorative museum walk. Fifth graders in Ms. Leah Larson and Ms. Laura O’Mahoney’s class created posters and dioramas and designed Freedom Towers using materials such as cardboard, Styrofoam and Legos.

The young student-architects displayed their unique designs to honor all of the heroes of Sept. 11, 2001.

Inventive Ideas in JAE!

Students in Gina Hale’s class at Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School took some time for getting to know one another, checking out some library books, and using sensory friendly, brightly colored Pop-Its to create designs. One student – Blaze Carlino – created a chain reaction-type machine with blocks and a marble. Blaze designed it to perform the simple task of getting the marble to the end of the machine in an indirect and complicated way. Great job student-inventors!

Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School fourth graders are in for a year of fun, growth and challenges. To start off on a creative note, fourth grade teacher Ms. Laurene Manfredonia tasked her students with creating binder covers in Google Documents for their personal writing portfolios. The students chose clipart and learned how to insert into their documents. The artwork ranged from favorite animals to beloved sports teams to bring some artistic flair to their upcoming lessons in English Language Arts.
