STUDENT ACTIVITIES

The boys lacrosse team opened the season with two hard-fought games against Mater Dei and Gibson Southern on Saturday. Wesley Terrell led the scoring for Edgewood with 3 goals. Also scoring were Connor Bolin and Mitchell Terrell. Mason Adams led in assists and Saif Hussain had 28 saves in goal.

TED Talk for Tuesday, March 9: Does the Boston fern you’re dutifully misting each morning appreciate your care? Or can the spreading oak in your local park take umbrage at the kids climbing its knotted branches? Not likely, says Italian professor and researcher Stefano Mancuso, but that doesn’t mean that these same living organisms aren’t capable of incredibly sophisticated and dynamic forms of awareness and communication. Mancuso’s team explore how plants communicate, or “signal,” with each other, using a complex internal analysis system to find nutrients, spread their species and even defend themselves against predators.

Key Club will be selling Yuda Bands for $10 in the cafeteria during lunch for the next few weeks. Yuda bands are unique handmade bracelets made in Guatemala and this year all of Edgewood’s sales will go towards supporting the education of Aubrey Takaedza, a student in Zimbabwe. To learn more about Aubrey’s story, you can watch this video linked here: https://youtu.be/I_0ZkHxwA-Y
