Important Dates to Remember:



  • December 21-January 1: Winter Break


  • Monday, January 4: Return to school


  • A message from Mr. Edwards about the last ten days of school: "All of Asheville City Schools will conduct EOG testing in the last 10 academic days of school. Currently, that means beginning on the 24th of May and concluding on the last day of school, June 7th. This certainly is contingent on snow days, so fully expect for these days to shift later into June. We want to be proactive in letting everyone know now, so that there are no surprises at the end of the year".

  • I have also set up a free class account with Kahn Academy. Your child can join Ms. Zunguze's Kahn Academy class, which provides standards-based math missions that are individualized based on your student's progress within the program. I will offer extra credit for each online session that your child completes. Here's how to join:
  1. Sign up at <khanacademy.org>.
  2. Visit <khanacademy.org/coaches> (the "Coaches" tab in your profile).
  3. In the "Add a coach" field, enter the class code, which is APAP8A.
  4. You're set. Now click Home to start learning!
