Mr. R. W. Teetz, Superintendent
Edinburg Family and Friends,
We hoped you enjoyed the February break along with the snow days. I hope that we will be spared any additional snow days in the month of March. It’s hard to believe that we are half way through this school year.
As I walk through the building, I see our students working hard every day and they are consistently mastering
their lesson at grade level.
Congratulations to Brytney Moore for an excellent performance at the Capital Region Spelling Bee, held at Proctor’s Theater on February 11, 2014. We are very proud of Brytney for her accomplishments. We would also like to thank Mrs. Patricia Colson for coordinating and being the official emcee for our long standing Spelling Bee tradition over the last ten years. She has stepped down from coordinating this fun regional activity and has passed it on to another teacher.
Our second quarter marking period has ended. Listed are the students who achieved 85-90% for Honor Roll and 90% or higher for High Honor Roll.
Congratulations to all!
Basketball season is underway. Mr. Moore, Mr. Sitts, and Mr. Mylott hold practices 3 days per week with two groups of players; 3/4 graders and 5/6 graders. Their first game will be held on February 28 @ 4:15 p.m. at Lake Pleasant school. Go Eagles!
And Let’s Go Warm Weather!

on the Second Grade

In reading, we are learning so many interesting facts about the foundations of our country and our government. In our latest module, we read about The War of 1812. Our class learned about some of the important people in our history such as James Madison, Dolley Madison, Mary Pickersgill, and Francis Scott Key. We also studied ancient Greek and Asian civilizations. We were able to have an understanding of their countries, government, and beliefs. Learning about the Greek gods and goddesses was intriguing for the children. Several students brought in books from home and also visited local libraries in search of books on Greek mythology that related to our lessons. I was pleased to watch my students take such an interest in this topic.
In math, we have been working on place values. The Common Core has been extremely challenging for us in the second grade. We are learning new ways to decompose numbers and different ways to skip count. The children have been trying their very best and our families have been working very hard at home to help their children understand the material. Kudos to ALL; I am so proud of you!
Hip Hip Hooray for the 100th Day! Recently, the second grade students enjoyed activities around the 100th day of school. In one day, the students read 100 short stories, each completed 100 math facts, completed a 100 piece puzzle, and even had a snack that totaled 100 pieces. The students and their families also created 100 piece projects that were displayed in the hallway. Students glued 100 items to a poster board. I would like to thank all the families for sending in their projects. We had so much fun counting and comparing the collections.
Have a safe March, and Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Mrs. Ellis’ second grade class.
