Meet Kathy Watson Who was one of your favorite teachers growing up and why? Mr. Elliott - my high school English teacher. He taught with enthusiasm and humor. He also had a fun nickname for every student! What is your favorite activity to do outside of school? Attending sporting events; traveling; baking; and spending time with my family. 🏀✈🎂👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 If you weren’t doing your current job, what other job would you want to do? Work for a non-for-profit agency helping others and the community…or a professional organizer. ❤ What is a fun fact about you? I attended my first concert in high school – Fleetwood Mac. My friend won front row tickets through a local radio station, and we even had a limo ride to and from the concert! 🎤 Mrs. Watson, we benefit so much from having you on staff at BHES! Thank you for all of the awesome things you do to make our school great!

Last week we had our first Fuzzy Friday celebration of the year. In September, preschool, kindergarten, and 1st grade attended. Next month the big kids will! At Fuzzy Friday we strive to acknowledge students who have displayed positive behaviors both independently and as a class. Students got to dance to a few songs and watch their teachers try to guess what mystery items they could not see! We had several students earn warm fuzzy awards for awesome behaviors. The class that received the Colby award for overall positive behavior was Mrs. Nixon’s class. Miss Dawson’s class earned the Spirit Stick for great behavior in the gym in the morning AND they won the Chowhall Challenge for excellent behavior in the lunch room!

A normal lightbulb only changes 10% of the energy it uses into light for us to see, but an LED light uses all of the energy it gets to make light. If we ran a normal lightbulb all day everyday it would eventually burnout at about 42 days, but an LED light could run every day for up to 6 years.

Meet Chelsea Foster Hometown: Bismarck, IL Who was one of your favorite teachers growing up and why? My kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Hupfer. I have so many fun memories from kindergarten and remember Mrs. Hupfer being so kind. I was lucky enough to maintain a relationship with her growing up and eventually got to work WITH her! I now get to learn what dedication to students looks like by watching her. I am fortunate to call her a co-worker and friend! What is your favorite activity to do outside of school? TV nights with my family. We especially enjoy Survivor. We all draft contestants and try to see who’s picks get kicked off each week! 🌴🌎 If you weren’t doing your current job, what other job would you want to do? I would love to be one of the people on Go Noodle. I love all of the silly singing and dancing! (Someone else would have to do my singing though!) 💃 What is a fun fact about you? I can hula hoop for a long time. When I was in 7th grade, we were hula hooping and my gym teacher told me I could miss some of my next class if I kept my hula hoop going. After 20 minutes she made me stop and go to class! 😂
