The Principal's POV on...celebrating our students!

This month's board meeting was extra special for #BullockES since we had the opportunity to highlight the various strengths & talents of our students. This included a 3rd grade student selected by each special area teacher, our "top scorers" on the NWEA-MAP & two "check-in team graduates" that are now Bulldog Buddy Classroom Coaches!

As we prepared for our group to receive their awards, I shared how important it is that we remember EVERY student has strengths...many of which are not measured by standardized tests. They are athletes, artists and musicians. They are world travelers & technology experts, and each individual will blossom in their own way, in their own time. As educators we must never lose sight of this! We must strive to meet our students where they are and provide the tools they need to be successful. Remember, "success" will look different for each student so take the time to celebrate with them!

Seeing our Bulldog Buddy Coaches receive this honor after graduating from my “Check-in Team” was one of the proudest moments of my career as an educator, and I know that each teacher, parent, district administrator and board member in attendance felt the exact same way! Thank you for a fantastic week & have a great weekend!
