Edinburg Family and Friends,
Fall has arrived and everywhere you look are reminders of an autumnal Adirondack painting. While back at school, October was a busy month and it looks like things are not slowing down. With the fall season comes cool, wet weather, as well as flu season. Please be sure that your child is dressed warmly and if they are ill, please keep them home and help us in our efforts to reduce the spread of illness to other students and staff. Even though October was Fire Prevention month, we had the opportunity to be given a terrific presentation regarding Fire Safety and Prevention on Wednesday, September 24, 2014. Once again, we had the Hagaman Volunteer Fire Department’s Smoke House and Tornado Simulator. Every student had a chance to visit the smoke house, which simulated a fire situation, and were given instructions on how to exit a house in a safe manner. We would like to thank the members of the Edinburg Volunteer Fire Company and Emergency Squad, Hagaman Volunteer Fire Department, and the Saratoga County Sheriff's Department for participating in our fire demonstration day.
Fire Prevention month is an excellent time to review fire escape procedures and routes in your homes. It is also an excellent opportunity to check and test all smoke detectors. Fire Prevention month is not the only time that these procedures should be done, they should be done periodically throughout the year to ensure everyone’s safety. To honor our Fireman and EMT Volunteers, they were invited to a special luncheon on October 8th, to thank them for all they do for our community.
October 26 - November 1 is School Board Appreciation Week. If you see Board members Cynthia Frasier, Jacqueline Nichols, or John Olmstead, please be sure to let them know that you recognize the hard work they do in representing our school and community.
We will hold our annual Halloween parade on October 31, at 1:30 p.m. The students will parade in their costumes along with the Edinburg Fire Co. and Edinburg Emergency Squad from the school to the bus garage and back. We hope parents, families, and friends will be able to park along the parade route and enjoy this festive event. Remember, Sunday, November 2nd is Daylight Savings Time. Be sure to change your smoke detector batteries and set your clocks back.
The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) will hold its annual Roast Beef Dinner on November 8, 2014, from 4-7 p.m. We hope everyone from the community will be there to enjoy a fantastic meal and help support the PTO.
Students of the Month for September
“Character Education” focused on Citizenship
The Eagle’s Eye on Pre-Kindergarten
By Mrs. Kathryn Bradt
It has been a very busy year so far as we settle into our routine. There are so many things to learn (listening, following directions, classroom rules, etc.). We completed our home and family unit for October and are currently working on our fall unit. We are also completing fall and turkey projects for Thanksgiving and talking about what we are thankful for. We are learning so much this year about each other and ourselves. We can’t wait to learn more!
Pre-K wishes you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
