The Pirate Chest

May 9, 2016

Week in Review

I hope you all enjoyed Teacher Appreciation Week! We thank you all for your tireless work and dedication to our students. You make teaching look easy, and it is not! This week we celebrate 4 staff members who have made a significant impact on the lives of our students.

On Monday, Kelly Mitchell and Jill Lott received a $5,000 grant from Century Link. The two worked together in writing in grant and will purchase drones for our students to use! How exciting is that?

Also on Monday, Ms. Flint had twenty 7th graders take the Microsoft Specialist Exam and all twenty passed. She called around, even to DPI, and they do not have a record of any 7th grader passing the exam. We had 20!!! That is #PiratesSupport.

On Wednesday, Mr. Chasteen was presented with a check for $4,000 to assist in the purchase of our new wrestling mats. He went out, with school and central office approval, and convinced Marine Chevrolet in making the generous donation. Coach Blue gave a great speech about Coach Chasteen and all he has done. He started the wrestling program when he joined the staff years ago. To honor Coach Chasteen's dedication and loyalty to SBMS, the mats were dedicated in his name and honor!

I want to share with you this short video. Watch it and laugh and then ask yourself, what kind of teacher are you, a cat or a dog. These 4 above mentioned teachers are all dogs!!!
