Several leprechauns were caught at BES in Ms. Syndey Martin's kindergarten class. They are usually good natured kindergarteners but today they all turned into leprechauns! Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

The March 10th Early Dismissal day provided Van R. Butler Elementary teachers an opportunity to benefit from three Professional Development activities. Pictured is a session on Algebraic Thinking, led by VRB teacher Jenna Knight.  Rebecca Stuart and Beth Toombs, also Butler teachers, led their peers in Cognitively Guided Thinking, and District Literacy Coach Carrie Chavers shared Strategies for Managing Reluctant Learners and Problem Behaviors.   What an amazing day of learning!
