Edinburg Sixth Grade girls attended a Sister to Sister Summit program at F.M.C.C. on May 21, 2013. This is a one day event where middle school girls get together with other girls their age and are given the opportunity to talk about what is happening in their fast paced lives. Through many activities, presentations, and small group discussions, the girls learn to make healthy choices, develop leadership skills, and become more supportive of each other. We thank Mrs. Veronica Salvione for organizing the summit.

By: Mr. Sitts 4th Grade Teacher
The 4th graders have been working really hard in the classroom since the beginning of the school year. Now that the end of the year approaches, they are looking back at all they have done and learned so far. In Math, we started with some review concepts, and the students were very surprised at all they remembered from last year. We just finished working on division with decimals and are learning about probability. For Science, we have been talking about food chains and food webs. The students are now working on electricity and using it to power a boat they built.
The fourth graders enjoyed switching classes for the first time this year for Social Studies and are learning lots of interesting things about history with Mr. Mylott. They have been learning about the U.S. Presidents and are writing a biography on them. Each student is creating a timelines on a President of their choice. In Reading/Language Arts we are reading the book Johnny Tremain, which takes place in Boston at the time of the American Revolution.
The 4th graders want to wish all the students and their families a fun and safe summer. REMEMBER, after you are done diving into the pool, dive into a good book!
