RES is pleased to announce the RES LITTLE RED SNEAKER AWARD. This monthly award will be given to teachers, by teachers, who go the extra mile for kids in our school.RES Red Sneaker Award winners for October are Mr. Mike Stone and Miss Bright and Mrs Thomson.

This is what the grade 6 team had to say about why they awarded the Red Sneaker Award to Mr. Stone. "Mr. Stone has a welcoming and calm presence in the portables for all students. He is literally willing to drop what he is doing to help anyone out, and is continually finding ways to better meet the needs of his students. Mr. Stone's positive nature and infectious smile affects both teachers and students and we are very lucky to have him in our school community!"

This is what Mrs. Bevans had to say about Miss Bright and Mrs. Thomson. "My criteria was based on their dedication to education, engagement and encouragement. First, education - I admire anyone that takes the time to better themselves whether that is by learning a new skill or getting your masters. Even with their busy lives, these two women have chosen to go back to school and share what they are learning with us. Second, engagement - Miss Bright and Mrs. Thomson have put a lot of time and energy into teaching us that engagement in math is just as important as it is in literacy. I have been able to teach in both of their classes and have seen the results of their practice first hand. And last, encouragement - Miss Bright and Mrs. Thomson are always there to help anyone who needs them. I have had questions about everything from classroom management to teaching strategies  . . . They have answered my texts, sent e links to new teaching techniques, and let me try out their own resources."

CONGRATULATIONS, Mr. Stone and Miss Bright and Mrs. Thomson!
