Eggplant Fun Facts

Eggplant is this year’s featured vegetable.

Did you know . . .

  • Eggplant or “aubergine” is a species of nightshade grown for its edible  fruit.
  • As a nightshade, eggplant is closely related to the tomato and potato.
  • Culinarily, it’s a vegetable, as it’s used in main dishes and not eaten for sweetness.
  • Its origin is considered to be India where it continues to grow wild.
  • Eggplant is a very good source of dietary fiber, vitamin B1 and copper. It is a good source of manganese, vitamin B6, niacin, potassium, folate and vitamin K.
  • The name eggplant developed in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada because the fruits of some eighteenth century European cultivars were yellow or white and resembled goose or hen’s eggs.

Tigers of the Week: Lydia Gross & Mitchell Grand

Congrats to Lydia and Mitchell, our TIGERs of the Week for September 24 – 28

Lydia Gross – Cross Country

Lydia was the team’s number 1 runner at the Milaca Mega Meet with a 5k time of 21:57, one minute and 38 seconds faster than last year. She was also our top runner at the Hutchinson Invite. Every race she gives her best effort. At practice she is willing to go the extra mile and is a leader for the younger runners.

Mitchell Grand – Cross Country

Mitchell finished 12th at the Milaca Mega Meet. He ran a 16:53 5k and finished 12th out of 170 runners in the Varsity Race. His time was 46 seconds faster than his time on the same course last year. He has been our number one runner all year and is a great example for our runners. He leads the way at every practice and pushes his teammates to run their best.

E.C.F.E.? What is That?

By Marijean Storlie, ECFE/EC Screening Coordinator

E.C.F.E. stands for Early Childhood Family Education and is a public school program offered to all Minnesota families with children between the ages of birth and Kindergarten entry. Hutchinson’s E.C.F.E. program is located between West Elementary and Hutchinson High School in the “little brown building”.

E.C.F.E.’s model supports and strengthens families by providing educational classes, home visits, family events, field trips and other special events for parents and their children.

E.C.F.E programs include parent/child interaction time, early childhood education and parent education opportunities – all based on best practices for children and parents. E.C.F.E. classes are taught by licensed teachers who have degrees in early childhood education and or parent education.

Brain research confirms that the early years are an extremely critical time in a child’s development. By offering a variety of opportunities for parents and children to grow and learn together, E.C.F.E. classes support a child’s development socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.

E.C.F.E. is also able to support a family’s first positive connection with the public school system, which in turn creates a smoother transition to kindergarten and the K-12 system for both the child and his/her parents. E.C.F.E. provides this connection by engaging families and encouraging parents to become involved in their child’s learning from birth on.

Other benefits that ECFE provides to families include: support, focused time for parent and child, a home environment, positive adult/child interactions, familiarity in the community, positive connections, encouragement, and social interactions.

Research confirms that children, whose parents are involved in their early learning years, are more successful in school.  E.C.F.E. is eager and ready to support you and your child during his/her early years.

Call Hutchinson E.C.F.E. today at 320-587-8908 for more information or to enroll in one of our many available program opportunities.

Tigers of the Week: Daniel Roach & Hailey Farrell

Congrats to Daniel and Hailey, the TIGERs of the Week for September 17 – 21.

Daniel Roach – Boys Soccer

Daniel is a captain on this year’s squad and does everything one would expect out of their captains and more. He is a great defender and keeps other teams from scoring in tight situations. He is always the first one to be at practice and the last one to leave. He encourages other players no matter what the outcome of the game. He is a young man who respects his teammates, coaches and the game itself.

Hailey Farrell – Girls Swim and Dive

Hailey earned first place finishes in both her events at the Border Battle meet in West Fargo on Saturday. She is one of the hardest workers I have ever coached. She is willing to swim any event that is best for the team. She appreciates the opportunities to improve. She is always respectful of her coaches, teammates and competitors.
