WOW! EHSI students read for 835,870 minutes in October!
The assembly was awesome and there was so much excitement from the students! The gym looked incredible – thanks to the volunteers and Maratón committee members for helping to decorate! We gave out 84 prizes donated by local businesses – thank you to everyone who donated prizes!!
Maraton Thank You!
12 classrooms had 100% participation by their students.
The kids could not have been more excited!! Here are some pictures taken of the gym decorations to enjoy.
he Amity interns in Eden Prairie have created stations/ booths about their country, culture and customs. Come meet, learn about, and play different games and activities from Spain, Colombia, Chile, and El Salvador! The interns have created some beautiful, interesting, and very interactive displays. Please see below for a shift and role that fits you.

Please help our Maratón de Lectura committee decorate the gym, making it SUPER for the Celebration Assembly on Wednesday, 11/8! Help is needed from 9:30AM – 1:30PM. The assembly will take place later that afternoon with the grand total of minutes read being revealed, hopefully resulting in a special “flying” performance by our principals. We will be transferring the existing Maratón display from the front entrance to the gym and adding various décor items for additional impact. Tasks are simple! Please join us in our efforts to help make this day special for our SUPER readers!
Turn in all your signed reading logs, and send in all pledges with your student by Nov. 3rd. We’re excited to see who the big winners are!
El Dia de los Muertos is on 28 Oct!!
We’ll celebrate this Mexican holiday with fun arts & crafts, food, music, games, free sweet bread and hot chocolate.
Food will be available for purchase from Aurelia’s Restaurant.
Special performance by Aztec Dancers at 1:30 pm!
We can use your help to make the event a success – please sign up to volunteer!
Keep reading for Maratón de Lectura! Help reach our school goal of 1 MILLION minutes! Sr. Moncada and Sr. Hegland will attempt to “FLY” at the Celebration Assembly if we reach this goal!
Thanks to all the Kinder families who came out to the Kinder Meet & Greet last Thursday! Thanks also to these three for making a special appearance!
Turn in your Box Tops!
Last school year EHSI earned over $1,100 by clipping and submitting Box Tops for Education. Our first submission of the school year is coming up at the end of October and we’d like to turn in as many as possible. A collection box is located inside the EHSI office and will be open during conferences, so gather up your clippings and bring them along to drop off.
Happy reading! Maratón de Lectura is ongoing through the month of October.
