Each year Eagle Elementary hosts volunteers from the Junior Achievement Program. Some of these volunteers are parents or grandparents of the students there, some are parents of past students and there are also some volunteers that are community members that understand that there is a need to teach students at this level more about what goes on in the world around them. There are still a few classrooms looking for a willing individual to come and volunteer with the Junior Achievement program this year at Eagle Elementary.

 

Junior Achievement USA is a non-profit that began in 1919 in order to help start the discussions that kids will need as adults on topics such as economic success, planning for their futures and how to make smart academic and economic choices. This program reaches more than 4.8 million students each year in 209,651 classrooms. This program is a great way for the students to learn about different topics that are not in the normal school curriculum. If you are interested in signing up you can call Eagle Elementary at 402-781-2210.

 

The Eagle American Legion and Auxiliary would like to sponsor a girl or a boy from Eagle this year for an event called Girls State or Boys State. The sponsorship cost is $400 and they are open to accepting outside donations. Those interested in donating can send a check to Marla Checketts at 903 F Street, Eagle, NE 68347.

 

Girls and Boys State were developed by the American Legion Auxiliary in the 1930’s as a two day session. In the 1939 was changed into a week long governmental education program. The participants come from all over the state and the nation. The event provides training in the positive process of self government and good citizenship as practiced in democratic societies. Many other activities are offered throughout the week to help the students understand the American government, politics, elections, political parties, legislative sessions and parliamentary procedures. Please consider donating to this great cause.

 

Eagle Vision started out 2018 by signing in new officers to the board. The officers for 2018 are as follows Becky Rezabek; President Elect – Jennifer Krajewski; Treasurer – Brittany Bash; and Secretary – Brandi Hayes. The 2018 monthly meetings for Eagle Vision will be at 7 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month. Meeting location may vary from Eagle United Methodist Church to Bailey's Local.
