Congratulations to our NBES August Student and Teacher of the Month--Avery and Ms. Simpson! Our Student of the Month is Avery Spires, a second grader in Ms. Morse's class. Avery had lots of Good Job Coupons this month, and all of her teachers agreed that she is respectful, responsible, and compassionate. Avery received a goodie basket, a principal phone call home, and a yard sign to showcase her accomplishment. Our Teacher of the Month is Candace Simpson, our Gifted Coordinator and teacher. She was nominated numerous times on this month's ballot, and has received awesome shout outs from parents and teachers alike! Ms. Simpson received a tote bag, a candle, a Chick-Fil-A gift card, and a yard sign. Many awesome students and teachers were nominated. We can't wait to see who will make next month's list!
