Trip to Six Flags is fun for all
As is tradition for Erin students, the eighth grade enjoyed a beautiful day at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois. The weather was beautiful (even if it was a little cool), the lines were short, and everyone had an enjoyable time on all the rides, as well as playing games and just spending time with friends. Many of them went outside of their comfort zones and went on some rather daunting rides. What a great way to celebrate their time at Erin School.
Seventh graders experience life on the water
Seventh grade students at Erin recently took to the seas as part of their study of water and water quality. On May 22, the students sailed on the Dennis Sullivan, into the Milwaukee Harbor, to take part in workshops ranging in content from water quality, invasive species, benthos (mud at the bottom of the lake) to plankton. They were even allowed to raise the sails. It was quite an experience for all of us land lovers. After the sail, the students got a look at a different view of water when they toured the Jones Island Waste Water Treatment Plant. A great day was had by all.
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.
