Mrs Saxton, who has been certified as a STEM instructor, is preparing her students to be future-ready through the implementation of STEM curriclulm and framework. #ehawkSTEM https://www.emmetsburgnews.com/news/local-news/2021/03/11/real-world-learning-through-stem-innovation/
ECSD scheduled Snow Make-Up days on April 6th and 7th. Those days will not need to be utilized so there will be no school on April 6th and 7th, 2021. There will be a 1 Hour Early Release on April 1 and Spring Break will run form April 2-7, 2021.
National History Day (NHD) is a nonprofit organization that creates opportunities for teachers and students to engage in historical research through an innovative curriculum framework. Students learn history by selecting topics of interest and launching them into year-long research projects. The mission of NHD is to improve the teaching and learning of history in middle and high school. 7th and 8th-grade Extended Learning students from Emmetsburg Middle School have worked on projects all year around the 2021 NHD theme of “Communication in History: The Key to Understanding.” Students began research in October and chose their topics by November. Each student found at least 25 primary and secondary sources during December to understand the topics. In January, students created annotated bibliographies to demonstrate the depth of their research. After writing thesis statements, procuring images, and carefully crafting text, students created exhibit boards to showcase the research completed for their topics. Because the district competition was not in-person due to COVID, students made a Google Slides presentation to virtually present their projects. Students submitted their projects to be judged at the Spirit Lake district competition on February 22. All students’ projects were AMAZING, and the growth and learning that took place throughout the process made this a valuable learning experience. Mrs. Saxton is so proud of the hard work and dedication of all students. A big congratulations go to Ava Dietrich for advancing to the state level with her project, “Jane Elliott: Placing an Eye on Racism.” Ava’s project was one of two junior individual exhibits selected to advance to state from the Spirit Lake district. All 7th and 8th-grade Extended Learning students will showcase their National History Day projects on either Tuesday, March 16, or Thursday, March 18, from 4:30-5:45 pm in the student center.

Congratulations to our wrestlers that qualified for this week’s State Wrestling Tournament at Wells Fargo in Des Moines! Due to spectator capacity restrictions and safety measures, the High School Athletic Association asked us to remind all fans attending of the following guidelines: --Only clear plastic bags will be permitted in the arena. No purses, backpacks, etc. --Masks are required of all fans at all times unless eating or drinking. --Fans are required to remain in their assigned/ticketed seats throughout the session. While we understand not every seat is ideal, the only way we could accommodate 4000+ fans is with a seating plan that spread people out using the entire arena. The safety of all of our athletes, coaches, officials, workers, fans and communities is the highest priority. We appreciate all fans being responsible and following these guidelines.

We will require masks where there is not social distancing by family. Community members and families are also allowed to sit on the hill. The stage for the event will be in front of the home bleachers on the field.
