Building a Caring Community
We LOVE LOVE our new Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Kral. She visits us each week and talks with us about building our life skills. Our school adopted 16 life skills this year to improve upon to help us reach our full potential. The life skills include caring, responsibility, integrity, friendship, sense of humor to name a few. Guidance ran a poster contest. Children were asked to create posters to promote any of the life skills. They were so cute! Each grade level was awarded 3 winners and our class had 2! YIPPEE what great little artists. Take a look at these winning photos. Congratulations to Kayli, she won 1st place with a ribbon and a Target gift card. Congratulations to Alexa, she won 2nd place with a ribbon. We are so excited for you girls!
My name is Jeanne Wright and this is my 22nd year teaching in Volusia County, Florida. I am honored to be the 2009 Volusia County Teacher of the Year. That year I was also one of five finalists for the Florida Teacher of the Year. I am National Board Certified since 1999 in Early Childhood Generalist. I look forward to a wonderful year with my first graders!
