EUSD’s adoption of History-Social Science materials was a bit challenging because of the breadth of quality materials available at the time. Consequently, the district ended up with four series which best fit the grades for which they are utilized. Kindergarten-3rd use Scott Foresman’s History-Social Science, 4th and 5th grades utilize Houghton Mifflin’s History-Social Science California and US, 6th and 7th use Holt’s World History Ancient Civilizations and Medieval to Early Modern Times respectively, and 8th graders use the History Alive! series offered by the TCI company. Whenever appropriate, our teachers have integrated beautiful literature and authentic first-person narratives within the study of HSS.
Physical Education is critical to a child’s well being and academic growth. As a student exerts him/herself physically the brain is more open to the learning process. Therefore PE is offered to all grade levels on all campuses. Qualified staff lead a variety of activities to strengthen young bodies and expose students to new sports and skills. Team building skills and enhanced cooperation are important side benefits of all our physical education programs.
