From the office of Mr. Hossack

Great going teachers on your productive use of eCLASS. We have tied the district average over the last two weeks for student usage. We have also contributed in pushing the cluster's usage above the district average for last week. Lets continue to become familiar with eCLASS and use it to enhance learning. See the graph below for details.

The following BES staff members were recognized by their colleagues for having IT!

Cindy Perkins and Karen Meyer have IT! I can't thank you ladies enough for helping me with my RBES. Your willingness to so kindly share your expertise and experience with me is appreciate more than you know.


Ms. Robbins has IT! She is always willing to suggest ideas to add to my lessons to include technology and is very talented at working with our student news crew each morning!


Mr. Howard and Ms. Schlenker have IT! They are always there for their students and make an awesome teaching team!


The United Way Committee has IT! They worked hard and put in extra hours over the last few weeks at many events to make BES fundraising a success!


Ms. Vales may be new, but she "Has IT" too! She has a willing spirit with the hands and feet to go. When it comes to EIP and support, she's DEFINITELY in the "know"! She deserves a smile when she's seen, because she's a great addition to our team!


Teachers that transitioned to a new room location have IT!!! Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to making this a smooth transition for students.


Sorai in Mrs. Dean's class has IT! She left a lot of fun size snickers on Ms. Thomas-Lee's desk because she knows they're her favorite!


Michele vanLeeuwen has IT!! She drops what she's doing to assist everyone when they walk in. Whether getting supplies, helping someone sign up for benefits, watching the front office, making coffee, or helping with substitutes, she's the BOMB.COM!!


Ms. Gornall's KINDERGARTEN class has IT! They worked very hard in the Sea Lab posting discussion threads about what they learned about the pilgrims! Way to Go!


Ms. Gornall has IT! She ROCKS! Her classroom climate is INTOXICATING!
