We are college bound!!
This year at Backman Elementary, we are focusing on being college bound. This means practicing behaviors and skills now that will help our students reach their college and career goals. Each week we focus on a particular trait, such as grit, organization or problem solving. Teachers lead classroom conversations about the topic, the students use these skills throughout the week and one student from each class is chosen as an example of this characteristic. Students who are chosen are honored with a gift from a local college, a picture with the other winners, an award and postcard that is sent home. Click the link below to read about each of our characteristics!
Congratulations, this week's winners are :
Julia, Elizabeth ,Noe, Anysia, Mayte, Brija, Alana, Chelsie, Sara, Lufusi, Jesel, Embrindi, Anthony, Riley, Valeria, Adrian, Lissandro.
