Construction on our Campus

There has been a flurry of activity this summer on our campus. The 2017-18 school year will bring several positive changes. As we have already shared, our name is changing from ESAA to Étude Elementary to further unify our K-12 organization. The facility is also expanding.

In April, Sheboygan voters approved a referendum to make school improvements at many Sheboygan Area School District locations. There will be an additions to both the ends of the our building and renovations within the school. On the west end of the building an office space and classroom will be added. Currently, the office is located within a Pigeon River hallway. This addition will allow us to locate our office at the school entrance. The new classroom will be used by specialists that are currently teaching in the regular ed classrooms. On the east end of the building, a multipurpose room will be added that will mainly serve as a cafeteria. The addition of the multipurpose room will allow Phy Ed to access the entire gym throughout the day. Finally, in the summer of 2018, our bathroom will be expanded and the parking lot will be renovated to allow for more capacity and better traffic flow at the beginning and end of the day.

Construction started in July. For safety reasons, all entrances to the building except Door #10, the door next to the current office, have been closed off. This impacts where students will enter and exit the building during the 2017-18 school year. All students, families, and visitors will need to enter and exit the school at Door #10. We will still have access to our playground for recess.

While the construction may be inconvenient at times, the renovation will give us additional space that is greatly needed. As the construction continues, we will keep you updated on available entrances, playgrounds, and the parking lot.

We are excited to invite you to ESAA’s Trimester 1 Exhibitions of Learning (EoLs) on Friday, November 18, 2016.  EoLs are the students’ culminating presentation of projects. These exhibitions illustrate the integration academics, arts, and our Habits of Mind and Learning found in students’ projects.  Students share their learning and problem solving through the creative process. Exhibitions of Learning are also an opportunity for friends and families to participate in the learning by asking questions and giving feedback to students on topics such as the process, working together as group, how the students’ thinking changed, or how might their newly gained knowledge be relevant beyond the project.

Connections: Building Community at ESAA

Connections: Building Community at ESAA Thumbnail

If school is about helping students understand the world around them, it makes a  great deal of sense to start the school year helping students better understand themselves as friends, learners, teachers, and leaders. With this in mind, ESAA teachers Rachel Pekarek and Jamie Faul created a school wide plan to build community during the first weeks of school. We began the year using this plan to provide students and teachers with the time and space to make connections not only in their classrooms, but throughout the school and in the community. The following are some highlights from our first two days of school.
