Congratulations to Annie Goldberg, counselor at Broadview Middle School, on winning a $500 grant from the NCAE Student Services Division! ๐ŸŽ‰ With this grant, Annie created elementary and secondary counseling crisis tool kits to help our district be better prepared in the event of a crisis. The kits contain essential materials for our crisis response team to use at any location, allowing them to serve more efficiently. Meredith Draughn, ABSS Lead Counselor, had this to say about Annie: "Annie is the ultimate example of a highly qualified, masters level professional school counselor. She sees needs in both her school and our district and works to meet them in creative and effective ways. She is dedicated to her students, school and community and we are lucky to have her as part of our ABSS counseling family!"

โœจ38 Days, 38 Schools - Broadview Middle School Broadview Middle School is all about giving students a complete educational experience. They started things off right with a back-to-school cookout for the Bobcats community, with staff firing up the grill and handing out school supplies. Broadview makes parents feel like they're part of the team through open house events, report card pickups, and working together to set academic goals for students. While Broadview delivers solid academics, their true standout quality is the deep connections teachers build with students. Educators take the time to really get to know each child's strengths, struggles, and personalities. This creates an incredibly supportive environment where every student feels appreciated and encouraged to shine their brightest. Broadview also boasts thriving arts programs that allow kids to explore their creativity through art, chorus, and orchestra!

๐ŸŒŸTeacher of the Year Finalist Feature: Chanel Jones from Broadview Middle School Walk into her classroom and you'll immediately see why Chanel Jones stands out as a Teacher of the Year finalist! With her exceptional kindness and creative approaches to teaching, Ms. Jones goes above and beyond to provide a welcoming atmosphere where all students feel valued and engaged in the learning process. Her classroom is a space that sparks curiosity and brings lessons to life through immersive, hands-on projects. For instance, when teaching about Ancient Egypt, Ms. Jones didn't just rely on textbooks and lectures. Instead, she had students become historians and archaeologists, researching and creating their own "artifacts" like sarcophagi, pyramids, and mummies for an in-class Egyptian museum. She fosters a love of learning that extends far beyond test scores. With her kindness, creativity, and commitment to providing an inclusive environment for all learners, Chanel Jones exemplifies the qualities of an exceptional educator. Her passion for teaching shines through in every thoughtfully crafted lesson and project.

Thank you to Senator Amy Galey, Representative Stephen Ross, and Representative Dennis Riddell for visiting Broadview Middle, Alexander Wilson Elementary, and Eastern Alamance High as part of Bring Your Legislature to School Day. Dr. Harrison, principals, and other ABSS staff accompanied them along their tour across the campuses. During their visits, they had the opportunity to see classrooms in action, interact with teachers and students, ask and answer questions, and observe some of the great moments happening in our schools every day. Representative Ross even had an extra treat at Alexander Wilson, as his visit coincided with the school's Field Day festivities! Visits like these allow our elected officials to gain valuable insights into the daily operations, successes, and challenges faced by our schools. We appreciate their time and commitment to public education!
