    Escape Room Showcase Volunteers Needed
     
    Our Maker Morning classes here at Edgewood Middle School have been practicing their skills in problem solving, innovation, and collaboration through various lessons and activities. One of the most popular activities was when our students worked together in teams to complete a school-wide escape room challenge.
     
    Recently, our students have been working in teams on CREATING an escape room of their own for others to complete. This is where you come in. We would like to invite volunteers to come and challenge yourself in completing our students'
    escape rooms by solving puzzles and working as a team. This activity will take place on Wednesday, December 19, from 8:00-9:00 a.m. 

    Please let us know if you are interested in attempting to escape. We are looking for approximately 80 brave individuals. Please RSVP by Monday, December 10, by calling 651-621-6600.
