Recording Outstanding Education
Volume II, No. 6
Nassau County School District continues to have positive events occurring on our campuses. Take a look at some of the things that have happened recently.
Callahan Elementary recently held its student volunteer orientation. Students from West Nassau High School and Callahan Middle School attended their student volunteer orientation.
Each day, approximately 40 secondary students volunteer at Callahan Elementary before their own school day starts.
During this time they read to students, assist them in taking AR test, and help teachers. After talking with several students, many would agree that working with the "Little Warriors" is a great part of their day!
Congratulations to the winners for Callahan Middle! Their posters will represent Callahan Middle School in the national contest. The winners are:
- 6th Grade: Ronald Lawson
- 7th Grade: Jordan Wilburn
- 8th Grade: Mariah Johnson
- Overall Winner: Keerataya Jeeraorn
West Nassau is Sailing in Unity
Great work to all West Nassau High School's admin, teachers, and faculty for creating a connected learning experience for all of your students!
STEM with Rayonier
On a recent field trip for Manufacturing Day, Rayonier Advanced Materials provided students with exposure to a real life STEM workplace.
Mrs. Wright and her Fernandina Beach Middle School students rotated to different STEM stations: motors and controls, wood chemistry, cellulose products, pulping operations and forestry.
What a great opportunity to see these science concepts in action in our own local community!

You are....a TEAM!
Yulee Elementary School's 3rd-grade teachers completed a team building exercise where each teacher wore a blank "You are..." sign on their back and their fellow teachers wrote adjectives and positive words that conveyed to one another how amazing and important each member of their team is.
The thoughtfulness of this activity was really influential because it allowed each teacher to build one another up and gave everyone an opportunity to see the wonderful aspects they bring to their team each and every day.
We sometimes forget to take the time to recognize one another's gifts, so it was truly special to see how much fun everyone had praising their peers.
