Nearly 180 middle school teachers in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 received Chromebooks on April 19 as part of Vision One91 and the district’s plan to increase classroom technology. All middle school students will receive the same devices before the start of school next fall.
Parents and students are invited to attend any of these opportunities to meet and hear from Erika Nesvig, who will become principal at Eagle Ridge Middle School before the 2017-18 school year.
Mrs. Nesvig will be discussing her vision as principal and some of the new things happening at Eagle Ridge, including AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), Blaze Time, Advisory and the roll out of 1-to-1 Chromebooks for students.
Erika Nesvig, currently principal of Harriet Bishop Elementary in Savage, will become principal of Eagle Ridge Middle School in Savage on July 1.
Congratulations and thank you to the Eagle Ridge Student Council and all the students and staff who supported the recent coin drive. In total, Eagle Ridge Middle School raised $1,066 for the Toys for Tots!
Yana Khetiya practiced an hour a day for a couple of weeks to prepare for the 33rd annual Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 Spelling Bee on Dec. 5.
It paid off! The Eagle Ridge Middle School eighth grader emerged as the champion from among the 28 best spellers from around the district and took home the big trophy. The event went about 15 rounds with “competition" as the winning word.
Sixty-two eager 6th, 7th and 8th graders completed the grueling written spelling test on Oct. 26, and 25 finalists emerged and competed in the oral spelling bee on Nov. 2.
