Milton's Message 


February 28, 2020   

If I don't practice for a day, I know it. If I don't practice for two days, the critics know it. And if I don't practice for three days, the public knows it.


~Louis Armstrong







School Board Meeting

~ March 17







Grateful Moment #Gratefel

I have repeatedly expressed my gratefulness for our employees' hard work and dedication to this school district. However, it is not only their hard work and dedication, but also their creativity to connect to other groups and resources to provide our students unique learning experiences.  A perfect example this week is the Louis Armstrong Foundation's "Jazz: the First Days" performance at Bains Lower Elementary!  #grateFEL #wearewestfel

Marsaun Gilmore, Head Start Student, and Mr. Torrence Williams, BLE principal, welcome the Louis Armstrong group.

Students who answered questions correctly won a poster and pose with the jazz performers! (Stella Brown, Julianne Miller, Arabella Herring, Lucy Lindsey, Jillian Brown, Ella Percy, Khaulin Cavalier, Londyn Coates, and Amari Jackson)

Jillian Brown accepts her reward from Mr. Harris Parson.
