HESTEC Field Trip for 6th-8th grade

Our 6th-8th grade students visited UTRGV for HESTEC. The Hispanic Engineering, Science, and Technology (HESTEC) Week is a nationally recognized model for promoting science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers to students of all ages. Now in its 17th year, the program has been recognized as a “Bright Spot in Hispanic Education” by the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics. In early October, thousands of middle and high school students, educators and parents will converge at UTRGV for a week of engaging presentations by world-renowned speakers, interactive educational exhibits, dynamic robotics competitions and much more.

Red Ribbon Week

We will be hosting our Red Ribbon Week events the week of October 29th-November 2nd.

We would love to have each student participate in the daily events and activities. Please see the schedule below:

MONDAY, OCTOBER 29TH - Say Yes to Healthy Heart & Body

  • Wear red to kick off Red Ribbon Week
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30TH - Living Drug-Free is no Sweat
  • Wear workout clothes such as warm-ups/sweat suits/sweatshirts (shorts must be knee length)
  • Dress as a character in a book that demonstrates character
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1ST - Educate Yourself About Drugs
  • Wear your favorite college t-shirt
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2ND - Dress for Success
  • Come to school dressed for success and the awards ceremony


Our Campus attendance percentage was:

  • 97.37% for the week of 9/24-28/18
  • 94.61% for the week of 10/1-5/18

Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways you can prepare your child for success—both in school and in life. When you make school attendance a priority, you help your child get better grades, develop healthy life habits, avoid dangerous behavior and have a better chance of graduating from high school.

When kids are absent for an average of just two days of school per month—even when the absences are excused– it can have a negative impact. These absences can affect kids as early as Kindergarten.


Donations Needed

Parents, donations are needed for the snack bar on Fridays. Please let us know if you will be able to donate! Thank you for your continued support.

Words, deeds and actions show whether someone is genuinely an individual of integrity.Read more at https://responsiveedreflections.com/portrait-integrity-2/

About Us

At Edinburg Classical Academy, our educational vision recognizes the value of each child as a person and each parent as their primary educator. While teaching virtuous conduct and offering a generous curriculum, we prioritize the value of respecting and building the child’s dignity as an individual while offering them an atmosphere which reflects truth, goodness, and beauty. Children have a natural appetite for knowledge, and we seek to offer sustenance for the child’s mind by creating a rich intellectual environment for students to develop connections between all subjects.
