Always part of the plan, an expansion of Burnsville Youth Collaborative programming to all three Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 middle schools has happened a little ahead of schedule.
The Harriet Bishop & 6th grade Eagle Ridge Middle School orchestra students invite you to their Winter Concert on Thursday, January 11th, at 6pm in the Eagle Ridge Auditorium.
The concert will feature beginning and advanced students in 5th through 6th grade, who have been studying their instruments for 1 – 5 years. You will hear a variety of selections, including Serenata, Marching Along and Evening Scenes. The students have been working very hard and are excited to share their music with you! We hope you can join us, even if just for a bit!
Three 8th grade students at Eagle Ridge Middle School earned awards in the Patriot's Pen essay contest sponsored by Burnsville VFW Post 5833 recently.
Students in the community in grades 6-8 were invited to submit essays related to the theme of “America’s Gift to My Generation.” Members of the Post evaluated the entries and selected three winners, said Bob Hansen, commander of Burnsville VFW Post 5833.
All three winners are students at Eagle Ridge Middle School:
When the detectives from Crime Scene Imagination arrive to arrest Alice, the poor girl realizes that she will be returning to a place that she had tried to forget. A place that she wished was just a bad dream. A place called Wonderland. Once Alice jumps back down that rabbit hole, she gets caught up in a wild and ridiculous murder-mystery. Someone has removed the king's head, and the Queen is furious. Alice and the Mad Hatter must find the culprit or suffer the Queen's wrath.

Like fashion, school designs change with the times, and at the time Eagle Ridge Middle School was built, open classrooms were all the fashion.
Now, though, open classrooms can be considered disruptive, as sound travels from one area to another, and a security concern. This summer, as part of Vision One91 facility upgrades in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191, Eagle Ridge addressed those issues with the installation of classroom walls, windows and doors throughout the school.
Eagle Ridge Middle School students will be able to pick up their Chromebooks at orientation on Aug. 24 from noon to 8 p.m., as District 191 expands its 1-to-1 personal learning device program to include grades 6-8 as part of Vision One91.
Chromebooks are on their way to middle schools in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 this summer after the Board of Education approved the purchase that will provide one-to-one personal learning devices for all students in grades 6-8.
Using funding provided by the Vision One91 referendum approved by voters in 2015, the District will purchase 2,100 Chromebooks from Best Buy Education, along with management licenses for all the devices and support in preparing them for student use.
