Edinburg Eagles School News
Mr. R. W. Teetz, Superintendent
Edinburg Family and Friends,
Mr. Michael Dardaris, a former middle school principal and music instructor, was guest speaker at the March 10, 2014 Board of Trustees meeting. Mr. Dardaris presented information on the new P-TECH (Pathways in Technology Early College High School) program for our local high schools. Please read more on the P-TECH program at www.hfmboces.org.
Our school budget committee met on March 17 and hopes to meet one more time before the committee submits to the Board of Trustees a proposed budget on April 8th, 2014. At that time the Board will analyze, review, and adopt the budget. There will be a budget hearing held on May 12, and the budget will go before the Edinburg School District voters on May 20. This is the statewide school budget vote.
We would like to thank Mr. Thomas Moore, Mr. Chad Sitts, and Mr. Dominick Mylott for their time and effort spent as coaches for our grades 3/4 & 5/6 basketball teams. The Edinburg Eagles’ teams have played home and away games with Northville, Lake Pleasant, Wheelerville, and Wells. It has been a great season for the players!
There is always time to Encourage Kindness. Remember kindness is contagious! Encourage your children to notice good deeds that others do and remember to be kind to him/her. Suggest to your child(ren) when they are at school to compliment others for a job well done (e.g. art drawings or classroom project they have completed).
Let’s hope for warmer weather soon, and encourage your children to run and play outdoors.

The Eagle’s Eye on First Grade

HAPPY SPRING!!! The first grade class is so happy to say those words. We are anxious to get outside and enjoy some nice, warm, spring weather. We have been working very hard in our class.
The Common Core has us on our toes. We are finishing up a unit on animals and their habitats all over the world. The students have really enjoyed learning about animals and how they adapt to their habitats in the Sonoran Desert, the Arctic Tundra, tropical rainforests, freshwater, and saltwater environments. They also loved our unit on the human body; ask a first grader how many muscles or bones are in the body. They soaked up that information!
Math has us mastering “ten groups” and we are just learning place value. This subject area is especially challenging and we are spending a lot of time adjusting to new terminology and methods. Reading, writing, and spelling are all progressing nicely. Our unit on fables taught us some wonderful lessons. We recently learned about the Fox and the Grapes. We all know that it is important to not have a “sour grape” attitude in life. I am so proud of my students for all the hard work that they are doing. Before we know it, they will be enjoying summer recess.
