Town Talk for April 9

Vail, CO Colorado
Ever wonder what all goes into a teacher developing a lesson in a core class like history or specials class like woodshop? How about the progression of a unit of study, from the delivery of content on the teacher’s behalf to student creating projects to display their understanding? Eagle Valley Middle Schoo plans to address these questions and more at its Extravaganza on Tuesday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The Extravaganza on April 10 will involve lessons in woodshop, Spanish, core classes, cooking and fitness testing, alongside an art gallery, student documentary film screenings and photo displays of the wonderful activities to get involved in at EVMS. Attendees can also shop 'til they drop at the book fair in the library and the 10,000 Villages fair trade art, decor and goods show, hosted by the seventh-grade team. The community is invited to attend this wonderful event to see what it’s really like to be a middle schooler in Eagle County Schools. For more information, please contact EVMS at 970-328-6224.
