Have A Great Summer!
Edinburg Eagles School News
Mr. R. W. Teetz, Superintendent
Edinburg Family and Friends,
As we come to the closing of another school year, our 6th grade class has graduated and is in the process of making the transition into 7th grade at Northville Central School. Best Wishes to the following students as they enter the middle school:
Again this year, we are offering S.A.I.L. (Student Assistance in Learning) and S.E.E.P. (Special Education Enrichment Program) to our students entering first through sixth grade. The program will begin July 7 and last four weeks; concluding on July 31, 2014.
On June 12, 2014, Mr Moore’s sixth grade class participated in a student Career Day. Each student was able to select a teacher or staff member that they wanted to “be” for the day. Before students were chosen, however, they all had to fill out an application and receive an interview. If they gave a good interview, the sixth graders were then hired for the day. Below is a writing assignment from the Student Acting-Superintendent:
Mr. Dylan Phillips was hired to be the Superintendent of Schools for the day. One of his assignments was to write a paragraph for the Edinburg Newsletter, as I do each month. Here is his completed assignment:
Hello, My name is Dylan Phillips and Thursday, June 12th was 6th grade Career Day. We had all been working hard that day. Everyone was pleased with who they were even though a couple of them had to speak to their children more than once and I had to speak with to a couple. As the day went we kept doing work only to have a few minutes to ourselves, but we kept going to keep the work done.
As the day went I had a lot of fun as the Superintendent, though some of the kids had to be spoken to. I think that all of the future children will have fun participating in 6th grade career day. Also, I have a feeling that we will miss this amazing school in its entirety.
Well, I had a lot of fun working alongside Mr. Teetz and have noticed all the work Mr. Teetz had to do and I felt great doing what I had to do. I hope everyone who is hired as Superintendent has the chance to experience all the fun as well as all the work. Have a great day.
The Entire Edinburg Common School would like to wish Mrs. Gail Vandenburg much health and happiness in her retirement. Mrs. Vandenburg has been driving our Edinburg school children since 1988 (mostly S. Shore Rd. and up and down Fox Hill). She will be missed by everyone who has ridden a mile with her.
As most of you are aware, our roofing and HVAC project is finally underway. The Board of Trustees has approved the contract with Correll Company LLC for the main school building and bus garage roof and R.F. Gordon Mechanical for the installation of the three (3) HVAC units as required by the New York State Education Department. I have my fingers crossed that the project will be completed by the end of August.
The district is also doing a lighting retro-fit project that will change all the lights and ballast in every fixture in the district. We can no longer purchase our current lamps and are required to buy the upgraded T-8 lamps which will cut down on greenhouse gases as well as save the school in KwH and cost.
The National Grid retro-fit is estimated to save the school district over 80,000 lbs in greenhouse gases along with 30-45% in future electrical cost.
This project will save the district money, time, and many years of energy savings. With both projects finishing up in late August, our school doors will be open and ready for students on the first day of school, September 4, 2014.
Join the Board of Trustees at the Re-organizational/Regular Board Meeting to be held on July 10, 2014 at 6:00 p.m.
I wish everyone fun, exercise and laughter this summer. Before you know it; it will be Labor Day! Enjoy.

Summer is a favorite holiday of many people. The days are long and the sun’s rays are warm. It is a time for camping and hiking, swimming and boating, vacations and amusement parks. Gardens are in bloom and everything is covered in brilliant shades of color. It is also a time that children are home from school. It is important for children to be able to relax and enjoy the summer months. However, it is equally important to continue to keep children actively engaged in the learning process. Allow your children the time to read over the summer. Let them pick books that are engaging and of interest to them. They can either read to themselves or to a family member. Allow your child to practice their math skills through simple recipes to create foods they would enjoy preparing and eating. There are also plenty of opportunities for children to explore through trips to museums, parks, and more. There are many great free places for children and families to learn throughout the summer.
I hope everyone has a fun, safe, and educational summer. Enjoy the sunshine!
