Congratulations to #VanguardPride staff members, Kelly Kroon and Josie Geishirt!๐Ÿฅณ Both Josie and Kelly achieved National Board Certification, which is a voluntary process. As part of the process, Josie and Kelly had to demonstrate that they were accomplished teachers through videotaping themselves teaching, showing they know how to take each child's strengths and needs into account, and how to design appropriate assessments. They also took a test to show their knowledge of literacy. There are about 1600 National Board Certified Teachers in Wisconsin.

It was fun in the sunโ˜€๏ธ during this year's Field Day at Mazomanie Elementary! Field Day is a day when Black Earth Elementary and Mazomanie Elementary students get together and each student is placed on a team. These teams participate in different games and races while getting to know each other and building some pretty neat relationships. The 5th grade students are team leaders and wow, they did an awesome job leading our #VanguardPride kindergarten through 4th grade students! ๐Ÿฅฐ What a perfect way to celebrate ๐Ÿฅณ the end of the school year!

Black Earth Elementary held a "Wild About Books" literacy night on May 3. Families were able to listen to read alouds, visit the book fair, and make animal masks and paper bag puppets. The favorite activity of the evening was talking with the herpetologist (reptile lady) and seeing the creatures she brought along. Everyone agreed the literacy night was "wildly" successful!
