Virtual Learning Playbook
March Madness Competition Recap
We also would like to recognize the MVP of each school. The following teachers scored the most points in their building:
- Bellefonte Elementary: Julie Henry
- Benner: Kacie Montgomery
- Pleasant Gap: Trevor Montgomery
- Marion-Walker: Jennifer Carroll
- BAMS: Ashley Waite
- BAHS: Sarah Rodgers
Finally, we'd like to give a huge shout-out to Sommer Garman! She was our principal MVP. Not only were members of the winning team from BAMS, but she had the greatest number of teachers participate. Check out her cool trophy below!
We plan to continue to gamify professional learning next school year, and hope you consider participating in a future competition.

May Day, anyone? Check out this fun Bitmoji Calendar for special days in May to celebrate. From Star Wars Day to Grape Popsicle Day, there's something for everyone! Hyperlinks to accompanying activities are included for each special date on the calendar.
Looking for a unique way to have students wrap up a book, unit, or the entire school year? Consider having them create a Photo Bento Project! Inspired by the Japanese Bento Box, this strategy is not only fun, but forces students to use higher level thinking skills. Check out this presentation for more info.
Check out this lesson about the properties of water geared for HS students. Best part? It was created using Pear Deck! Just make a copy, open up the Pear Deck Add-On, and "Voila!"
