Rock In Prevention – An Anti-Bullying PTO sponsored Event

Posted November 15th, 2015 & filed under News

On November 14th, students learned about strategies to avoid bullying and bully behaviors and ways to be a good and supportive friend through the Rock In Prevention program. We were joined by 30 CMS 8th graders who were all former EHSI students. We loved this partnership and hope to look for more ways to make this happen!
The day was presented entirely in Spanish, including the music, and each of our students were given a music CD to take home to share the message and songs they learned that day.
This event was also featured on the Eden Prairie School’s Facebook Page – check it out!
This majority of this event was funded by the PTO. Thanks to everyone for supporting the PTO – your fundraising efforts enable us to bring events like this into the school to benefit our children!unnamed (1) unnamed (2) unnamed

School Board Elections November 3rd!

Posted October 28th, 2015 & filed under News

Here is a note from the Eden Prairie School Board:

Dear Parents and Guardians of Eden Prairie Schools:

On November 3rd residents of Eden Prairie will have the opportunity to elect four of seven School Board members to serve 4-year terms beginning January 4, 2016. We encourage you to become informed about all of the candidates so you are able to vote for School Board members who will best represent your priorities and values. If you have questions about voter eligibility, polling locations or early voting, please visit the Eden Prairie School website www.edenpr.org or contact Laurie Hemstock, Elections Coordinator, at 952-975-7072.

Over the past few years your current School Board has made it a priority to find new ways of connecting with taxpayers and residents of Eden Prairie. We have attended meetings with groups such as the Preschool and Community Ed Advisory Councils, the Senior Center, members of the Somali community, and PTOs. If you are a member of a community group that would like to invite the Board to come to one of your meetings, or if you simply have questions or comments for the Board, please email us at SchoolBoard@edenpr.org.

Thank you for your valued partnership!

Ranee Jacobus, Chair
Dave Espe, Vice Chair
Karla Bratrud, Treasurer
Elaine Larabee, Clerk

Día De Los Muertos is this Saturday!

Posted October 27th, 2015 & filed under News

EHSI is proud to host our 2nd annual event, this Saturday from 9am-1pm in the cafeteria. We will have bread, hot chocolate, music, crafts, and more! Food from local Mexican restaurant, Aurelia’s, will also be available to purchase.

What is Día De Los Muertos?

It’s a cultural event that is celebrated in many Latin American countries. On November 1 and 2, the people in many Spanish-speaking countries celebrate this event by gathering with their families and friends to honor and remember their relatives who have passed away.

Families celebrate by making delicious treats such as bread, hot chocolate, and tamales. They listen to music, dance, and tell stories to their children. The children play games and make decorations. They write short rhyming verses in honor of relatives who are no longer with them.

Take a look at the video from last year’s event above. This event is made possible by our volunteers. Click here to sign up to help!

Special thanks to Marcela Roos for organizing this wonderful cultural celebration!1656118_973685302646632_6730086503894198660_n
