Several leprechauns were caught at BES in Ms. Syndey Martin's kindergarten class. They are usually good natured kindergarteners but today they all turned into leprechauns! Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Watching Others Work to Improve Our Personal Craft
Submitted by Kristen Rhodes, Walton Middle School

On Thursday, March 10th, teachers at Walton Middle School participated in highly engaging, peer-led professional development activities.  Sessions throughout the afternoon focused on differentiating meaningful instruction, interpreting current data, and writing classroom grants.  In addition to these informative sessions, teachers also played a game called "Brown Bag It" that allowed them to help their peers problem-solve their burning questions.  At the end of the session, teachers also nominated their coworkers for faculty Oscar awards (complete with snazzy prizes) to recognize their hard work each day on the job.  The early release afternoon was full of excitement and learning at WMS.
