Building Leaders Through S.T.E.M.
Have you given in to the fall season and bought a pumpkin spice latte yet? September brings a change of season and into a little over a month into school.
Our Cadets have been working on systems and routines to assist in creating a positive culture and climate. Routines are now established both in the classroom and at home, helping to balance our students’ full plates of homework, sports, family time, reading, play and more.
Our teachers have been working collaboratively to create engaging and enriching experiences for our Cadets. Students participated in our STEM Day in August. Cadets in K-5 participated in differentiated Hands on Science Experience using the 5 E Model in Science (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate.) Please see highlights below of the experiences.

Guidance Corner-- Mrs. Williams
Hello Bethune Academy families. My name is Nicole Williams, and I am new to BA this year. I have been an educator for over twenty years working as a teacher, STEM specialist and counselor. I am originally from Alabama and I have lived in Florida for six years. Serving children and families are very important to me and I am committed to supporting the academic, social and emotional needs of all students. I look forward to getting to know all our students and families.
Cadet of the Month — This is an initiative to build and recognize good character. Each month, we will focus on a specific character trait. Teachers will identify two students from their classroom each month who have exemplified the character trait of focus. Parents can participate in the Cadet of the Month program in two ways. First, they can complete the attached ticket highlighting the students use of the trait at home and they can virtually be present for the recognition ceremony at the end of the month. Students receive a certificate and a special recognition treat.
