Although it is not quite officially fall, it is sure starting to feel like it outside. The weather is changing to cooler mornings and the sun is going down long before we are ready for it once again. The early morning boot camp ladies are still outside for the time being. There have been a couple of chilly mornings but the workout warms you right up! The AM bootcamp group will be moving inside to the Eagle Elementary School again for the winter at some point. Coordinator Robin Sinner will get more details out as soon as she has them in place.


Our very own resident Stephanie (Schilke) Hoos was inducted into the Lincoln High School Hall of Fame Aug. 31! Steph played volleyball, basketball and track at Lincoln High and was in the graduating class of 1994. In 2008 she was also inducted into the Concordia University Athletic Hall of Fame. Some also might not know that in 1998 she was the State College Female Athlete of the Year! Those that know her know what a rock star she is so it’s just so wonderful to see her get such a wonderful recognition! Congrats Steph!


Eagle Vision will be putting together a Sand Volleyball Tournament to raise funds for the Eagle Pool! The pool is in need of some updated equipment such as benches, tables, a new slide and possibly some shaded areas or new umbrellas. This fundraiser is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 21 so be watching for more details and start putting together your team! This will be a great opportunity for those that have stated that they would help out with these sort of events to get a chance to volunteer by either getting a team together or by helping the day of the event.


Come to the next Eagle Vision meeting September 14th if you would like to assist with planning this!

The September PTE meeting for the Parents and Teachers of Eagle Elementary will be September 21st (free babysitting will be provided). There are a multitude of ways that the parents in our community can volunteer their time to help throughout the year and become more involved in the PTE. They do so much for the school children here in Eagle and can use more support during these activities. The trick or Trot Fun Run will be coming up in October so be watching for more details from PTE on that event! Please note that there will be an early dismissal day at Eagle on September 27th with Eagle students dismissing at 12:55.


The Market to Market Race will be coming through Eagle on September 30th. This is a 76 mile course broken down into 19 stages, each of the runners on a team takes turns running sections of the race from The Old Market in Omaha to the Hay Market in Lincoln. If you have not ventured out on this day in the past to check out the races I strongly encourage you to do so! It is quite a sight to see, just watch out for all the giant decorated vans driving through town!
