The Bobcat Bunch

Bryceville Elementary School's Faculty and Staff are celebrating Spirit Day each Friday. One Friday, they made a video for their BES Bobcats. Take a look!

Themed Rewards

Mrs. Fancher's 2nd-grade class at Wildlight Elementary usually has theme days in the classroom when a certain amount of iReady lessons have been passed and completed. Her students have been doing an amazing job with distance learning and she wanted to celebrate them. She hosted some virtual theme days.

Flat Teachers Find Happy Students

Teachers at Callahan Elementary School mailed "flat teacher" versions of themselves to their students. Students are taking their flat teacher on many adventures with them.

Mrs. Taylor's 1st-grade students had a great time with "Flat Mrs. Taylor"!


#EarthDay2020 🌏

Recycled Robots

The Little Hornets in Mrs. Walker's 2nd-grade class at Yulee Primary School discovered a lot of information about Earth Day through distance learning. Using Epic, they read book collections on Earth Day. They also watched Brainpop Jr.'s video on recycling before making "Recycled Robots".

BINGO Motivation 🏆

Mrs. Barnes, from Callahan Elementary School, delivered BINGO boards to her students. The boards were marked with things that students can do during distance learning. Students marked off items until their boards were full. They shared their pictures with Mrs. Barnes to receive a BINGO pass that could be used for a free day of Lexia/i-Ready or other prizes. They all look like winners!

🐰 Hop to Drawing 🐰

Callahan Elementary's, Mrs. Wheeler, guided her students on a virtual directed drawing of a bunny. Using Google Meet, students followed Mrs. Wheeler as she modeled the drawing. Mrs. Wheeler said, "It was great to see my students showing off their hard work". It looks like they were proud to showcase their bunnies!

🐝 Hornet Hive Book Bin 📚

At Yulee Elementary School, the Media Specialist, Ms. Solis, created their very own Hornet Hive Book Bin for their library book returns. The Book Hive sits in front of the school, so the Little Hornets can quickly buzz in and return their books!


Learning With A 🐐

Hilliard Middle-Senior High School's 6th-grade student, Corbin Poteet, has a unique friend join him during his distance learning. His pet goat, Lola, joined him for his Teams meeting with Ms. Nantz's ELA class. Many students have enjoyed having their pets near them while learning from home.

Chemistry Can Happen Anywhere

Not being on a school campus has not stopped Ms. Brumfield's Chemistry students from showing what they know. The Yulee High School students are modeling chemical reactions at home using gumdrops, stickers, or whatever materials they have available. Check out their models below!

Time to Fly ✈

Bryceville Elementary's Faculty and Staff sent a flight of support to their students on their Friday Spirit Day.

Helping A Community

Mrs. Williamson, Mrs. Parm, Mrs. Meyer, Mrs. Harrison, and Ms. Furr were some of the teachers from Callahan Elementary that were working together to help serve lunches to the community.

Out of the BLUE...

On May 1st, Mrs. Hunter (Hilliard Middle-Senior High School) and Mrs. Hopson (Fernandina Beach Middle School) delivered BLUE treats to their students on ACCESS points. The bags were filled with all things blue and the tag said, "Something out of the BLUE to say we miss YOU!" These teachers were thrilled to see the smiling faces that they have missed so much during distance learning.

Spreading Cheer 😊

Students from Mr. Arnold's Band and Guitar class at Callahan Middle School recorded music videos and a personal message of support that were sent to local nursing home residents to spread cheer while they are unable to have visitors. Compassion and the power of music are alive and well at CMS!
