Williams Elementary Eagles of the Week: 12/14/22

Congratulations to our latest Eagles of the Week at Williams Elementary School: Drea Mitchell (3rd grade), Julia Rancourt (4th grade), and Thea Gregoire (5th grade).

Ms. Kinney nominated Drea Mitchell as the third grade Eagle of the Week. She shares, “Drea is always focused and listening to the directions. She works hard in class and even if she may struggle, she keeps trying to do her very best. Drea has such a positive attitude and her smile is contagious! She is kind to others in the classroom and will do anything to help out. Keep working hard and being kind, Drea!”

Mrs. Pullen nominated Julia Rancourt as this week’s Eagle of the Week! She writes, “Julia is a hard worker with such a kind soul. She is polite and a good friend to many. Julia follows directions, completes her work in a timely manner, and participates in classroom discussions. She is respectful and takes responsibility for her own learning. Julia is always doing her personal best. Keep up the awesome work; you are a joy to have in the classroom!”

Miss Desmarais would like to nominate Thea Gregoire as the fifth grade Eagle of the Week. She shares, “Thea is very quiet at times, but such a hard worker. She is a kind student who always has a positive attitude and a smile on her face. Thea is very creative, respectful, and always knows how to make others smile. She is a great friend and has shown lots of growth throughout the year! Keep up the great work Thea because you can do hard things!”

Williams Elementary School’s Making a Difference award recipients were announced last Monday at their Be the Light Assembly: Chris Black and Val Jackson. Principal Smith shares, “We are so blessed to have these two ladies supporting our students each day.”

Nurse David and Aldi Allen nominated Chris Black for this month’s Making a Difference award. They write, “Chris is calm, firm, and fair when working with our students. One that allows them to be able to express their feelings, have needs met, and have a clear discussion of their path for learning. All this happens using skills of an expert negotiator, a gifted educator, and someone here for the long haul. She may be small in stature and yet her effect has an almost “butterfly effect” – you just simply are a better person for being around her for the day. The lessons, the talks, the teaching, the support that has and will happen if you are gifted some time with Mrs. Black will stand the test of time. She shifts ideas, will adapt lessons, and make concessions in the moment to meet the needs of the students she supports. Having Chris on our team makes a huge difference. We all enjoy working with her. She is kind and is always willing to help her colleagues. Thank you for all that you do each day, Chris!”

Mrs. Meader recognized Val Jackson as this month’s Making a Difference recipient. She shares, “Val cares for each and every student here at WES. While on the playground or on bus duty, our students safety is her first priority. She enjoys building relationships with our students by playing games of Connect Four and kickball. She’s also been known to join a round or two of gaga ball. She is patient, kind, and can turn any situation into a learning experience for our students. We are truly lucky to have her here at our school. Thank you for all that you do!”
