Mrs. Hope Allen's 5th grade class made five hundred thirty 100s on AR tests in less than one month! Literacy Week inspired the students, but the motivation to read more and take more tests continued. Submitted by Debbie Bush/Jessica Dawkins.

“Literacy Changes our world” is the theme that WDE participated in February for Literacy week. In first grade, the students learned literacy is reading and writing. All students learned how important reading and writing is and how they can affect our daily lives. To help promote reading Mrs. Kim Moreno visited Mrs. Shelley Kyzer’s room to read. Mrs. Jordan Dady and Mrs. Melinda Bailey also attended this special reading. Mrs. Moreno read, “Me First,” which is a book about a pig that always has to be first. Pinkerton the pig learns a lesson and he stops worrying about being first. The students then wrote about how they could relate to Pinkerton’s character in the story. Submitted by Jessica Dawkins.

Look at the fun students had at Science Night at VRB! Emerald Coast Science Center works with us each year to set up multiple stations for students to visit to learn about all kinds of science. Students who completed at least 6 of those experiments received a "magic potion" to enjoy at the end of the event. Submitted by Sherrie Binkowski.

Bay Elementary participated in a Carnival Parade as part of the interdisciplinary study of Brazile. Students from each grade focused their studies on different aspects of the country. Each grade made a special float or poster that represented their topic of study. Topics included the Rain Forest, Flowers and Fauna, Sports and Culture. They all did a great job and had a great time!

Receiving an office referral can be a good thing for students at Butler Elementary! Positive office referrals were implemented this school year as a part of our Positive Behavior Support program. School administrators reward referred children with a “brag tag”, and in some cases a song written just for them by Mr. Drake! Submitted by Sherrie Binkowski.
