A Stylish Send Off for LE 8th Graders

Eighth graders were treated to a stylish send-off brunch before the final promotion ceremony on the last day of school.  Students received their honors ribbons, viewed a slide show assembled by their peers, and toasted the friendships and relationships built over 3 years of middle school.  Thank you to our fabulous LEAP classroom managers for putting on this lovely event.

Field Trips, Fairy Tales, and Stage Craft

Leading Edge 8th graders spent last week in Ashland, Oregon seeing plays and training with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.  A great experience in its own right, this trip is preparing them to prepare their own theatrical productions of fairly tales that they will perform for area elementary schoolers.

Check out these pics of the stage make-up and stage fighting workshops.

Our cross-curricular, three-year program links subjects together for a well-rounded and connected educational experience. Our teachers go above and beyond to offer an exciting curriculum that involves students in hands-on learning experiences that encourage creativity and exploration.

The Leading Edge Academy holds its students to high standards in the areas of academic achievement, attendance and behavior.  We expect our students to work to the best of their ability.  Families contribute 30 hours of service each year and commit to ongoing support and development of their student's academic portfolio.  In return, students leave our program well-equipped with pride, confidence, responsibility, knowledge and skills needed to excel beyond the middle school environment.

Digital Earthquake Storybooks

These were written by our sixth grade students who were asked to find an earthquake from the past that happened on their birthdate (via USGS). They then wrote a news report and a historical fiction account based on the event. Click on the image below to read a book from the shelf.
