Train ride provides family entertainment
Erin School hosted its 2015 Grandparents' Day program on Friday, May 1, featuring the kindergarten through second grade students with a trip across the country via the railroad. The morning began with
Dave Evans who spoke to the students and grandparents about the history of trains. A special treat of frozen custard was offered to all the travelers and then the train, with the help of a skilled conductor and a trainee, made various stops and explored different types of music featuring trains, such as I've Been Working on the Railroad, Wabash Cannonball, Take the A Train, and Chattanooga Choo Choo. The students performed again in the afternoon for their parents. Thanks to all our students and staff for making it all possible, and to Robert's Frozen Custard for the delicious snack.
Students create unique historical projects
Several Erin students recently participated in the Eastern Wisconsin regional competition of National History Day in a variety of categories. Miranda P. (Individual Documentary), Alan C. and Willie H. (Group Documentary), Marley K. (Individual Paper), Grace N. (Individual Website) and Ginny N. (Individual Exhibit). The students had to create historical projects around the theme "Leadership and Legacy." Miranda's documentary made it to the second round, and Alan and Willie's documentary also made it to the second round and was a runner-up to go to state. Ginny's exhibit on Clara Barton qualified for state, which means out of 26 entries, she placed in the top 3. On Saturday, April 25, Ginny competed against students from around Wisconsin at the campus of UW-Madison. Although Ginny did not qualify for nationals, she was very excited to earn a spot at the state competition in her third year of participating in the competition. Congratulations!
The 18th Annual Hartford Union High School 3rd-8th Grade Chess Tournament was a success once again, as 57 students competed on March 28. Five Erin students participated in the tournament this year. Ezekiel R., an Erin fourth grader, took first place in the individual fourth grade category, while Erin School came in as the third elementary school at the tournament. With the aid of chess clocks, six rounds of play were completed with 138 official games of chess played. Thirty-eight elementary school students and 19 middle schoolers played, and 35 of them had played in this tournament in previous years. Standard Swiss-pairing was used to pair up the students against each other. Congratulations to our chess players.
Forensics students win at State
On Saturday, March 28, Erin joined more than 80 schools at the Middle Level Forensics State Tournament held in Oconomowoc. There were 1,510 students competing in 18 different categories. Twenty-three Erin students qualified for State this year, and three of our seventh graders came home with trophies. After two normal rounds and a power round, Kenna D. received third place in Non-Original Oratory with a speech on gender equality, originally given by actress Emma Watson. Brooke S. and Samantha C. won third place with their Infomercial on the Trick Plate, a plate with a secret compartment so unwanted food can disappear and your parents won't notice. It was a very successful Forensics year for the 49 students on the team. Congratulations on a great season!
