I'm pleased to announce that our school will be participating in the Barnes & Noble's My Favorite Teacher contest. This contest gives our dedicated teachers a chance to be recognized in our community for the important work they do.
Here's how the contest works. We encourage our students to write an essay, poem, or thank-you letter describing their favorite teacher and how that person has influenced and inspired them. We will collect the entries and submit them to our local Barnes & Noble store by March 1. A team of judges from Barnes & Noble will choose the winner and recognize both the teacher and the student at a special ceremony during Educator Appreciation Days in April at Barnes & Noble.
The winning teacher will be entered into the regional contest, and each regional winner will receive a $500 Barnes & Noble Gift Card——and the chance to be named the Barnes & Noble National Teacher of the Year. The Barnes & Noble National Teacher of the Year will receive $5,000 for themselves and $5,000 for their school! This is a terrific vehicle to develop students’ writing skills and to showcase their creativity.
For more information, you can visit BN.COM/myfavoriteteacher or as always, if you have any questions - just let me know!
In partnership with UK, we have a big ACT event planned for February 7. We are going to run several practice tests at the White Hall Classroom building on campus. Given that students are preparing for the March state ACT, we are planning to accommodate quite a few students. We will also have at least three ACT instructors there to answer questions about the test.We have set up a webpage for students to register. http://www.kaptest.com/class/AKKU150021
