His scores there earned him a place in this year's state competition.
On Saturday, Elliot earned second place in Science for 7th graders. There were 296 students from across the state participating for grades 6-12 and each completed a test in science and math. For Elliot's grade level, the tests covered information for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. They also worked in teams on an engineering design challenge developed by ConocoPhillips. They had a small number of objects available to develop a tool to solve a real-life, on-the-job problem. Each team member played a different engineer's role in the challenge and had to present their end result to the judges as a group. The top six scorers in each grade level were recognized for both science and math as were the winning engineering teams.

She is always enthusiastic and more than willing to go the extra mile no matter the request.
Our students have really appreciated and enjoyed going 'outside the box' of the classroom walls with the various learning activities."

 

OAK FOREST CAFETERIA WORKERS

BIG BUC'S BRAG BOARD visits OAK FOREST. Child Nutrition Director Mary Ellen Vivrett says this: I would like to brag on our employees at OF!!
Oak Forest nominated them as employees of the month! They were nominated by the OF custodians and PE teachers who work beside them in the portable cafeteria. All of OF has a greater challenge in their portable buildings, but the cafeteria employees have an extra cross to bear with food preparation and transportation.
They work tirelessly to provide the best breakfasts and lunches possible for all the OF family - students and staff alike. They coordinate services with Vidor Elementary and this requires a lot of hard work and they do it with a smile on their face.
Mrs. Carolyn Wedgeworth states "every time I am in there they have a smile on their faces and cheerfully do the job given them. Our PE teacher and custodian made the nomination because they work closely with them in the same building at times. I gladly agreed to the nomination because of their attitudes and hard work. They are great bunch! I am proud to work alongside them".
The Child Nutrition Department is equally proud of the attitude and compassion these Child Nutrition employees exhibit. They are a great example to follow!! We are proud of them!!

 

SYDNEY THERIOT

BIG BUC'S BRAG BOARD is a Vidor Elementary this morning, where Madelyn Smith nominated Kindergarten teacher SYDNEY THERIOT for the Brag Board.
I would like to add Sydney Theriot from Vidor Elementary to Big Buc's Brag Board. Sydney always goes above and beyond, not only for her students but for her colleagues as well. No matter the situation Mrs. Theriot always finds the positive and wears a smile while doing so. I am bragging on her because without her and her positive outlook, my challenges would not be near as easy to overcome. It is amazing how balanced she is with her work life, social life, and family time. I have learned so much from Sydney and consider myself privileged because of it.

 

Aryanna

BIG BUC'S BRAG BOARD is at VIDOR ELEMENTARY this afternoon. Aryanna was nominated by teacher Ms. Molly Montgomery.
"February 1st, Aryanna found some money on the ground. Instead of just keeping the money for herself and not saying anything, she chose to turn it in to me. She also gave me a very detailed description of where it was. Most of the time anyone, not just children, would just take the money and run, but not Aryanna. She is filled with integrity. It was such a refreshing moment to have her turn that money in. Love having such a sweet girl in my classroom."

Wyatt and William

BIG BUC'S BRAG BOARD IS AT VIDOR MIDDLE SCHOOL!
Wyatt and William - Mrs. Nations' 3rd period Science class. "These students go above and beyond by willing to help and partner with students who sometimes struggle with the subject.

Mrs. Richardson's Class

Today BIG BUC'S BRAG BOARD is at Pine Forest Elementary.
Mrs. Karen Richardson's class read the children's book Snowflakes Fall, remembering the children who died in the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy. In exploring it, they learned how kindness can change others' lives. As their "acts of kindness," they put Post-It Notes with a happy saying on them inside library books (with Pine Forest library Mrs. Krista King's permission) for others to find when they check out the books some day. The students had a great time thinking of what to say and selecting a book in which to hide their "happy notes." Mrs. Richardson got the idea from a literature workshop at Region 5.

JOEY CICCIO

BIG BUC'S BRAG BOARD recognizes VHS grad JOEY CICCIO this morning. He was nominated by VHS principal Mr. James McDowell, who received the following letter.
"I am a teacher / parent in Spring ISD. My wife and I came to your school this past Saturday for the TPSA Law Enforcement awards ceremonies. I wanted to let you know about a young man (I just know him as Joey - he had a backpack with the Pirate logo on it). We arrived close to being late and it was beginning to get dark. We parked and were definitely in the wrong area. We were on the phone with our daughter trying desperately to find where the awards were and obviously stressed. Joey was coming out of the gym and looked to be going home. He took the time to stop and ask us if we needed help. He talked to my daughter on our phone and determined where she was. Then, instead of just giving us directions, this young man took the time to walk us back through the gym area and make sure we found where we were supposed to be. I know it does not seem like much, but that was a such a helpful gesture for a couple of parents who were worried they would miss their daughter's awards."
Congrats, Joey! And thank you for representing Vidor so well!

 

KAYLA JINKS
TIFFANY BOYETT

BIG BUC'S BRAG BOARD is at VIDOR ELEMENTARY this morning. Principal Mr. Jeff Leger nominated these two ladies.
"KAYLA JINKS and TIFFANY BOYETT have really stepped up their efforts in PTO this year to make sure our students are not doing without. Kayla has moved into the role of president recently and Tiffany has been right by her side. There are many others serving in PTO that deserve credit as well, but these two are the driving force. Vidor Elementary would like to thank these two ladies for working long and exhausting hours to ensure our students feel special. Some examples of things they have done are: Helped with school pictures, set up and ran the Santa shop, decorated our hall for the holidays, created a coffee bar in the teacher lounge, helped decorate the homecoming float, many other things teachers requested, dressed up the entrance of the school to make it more friendly and appealing for visitors. They are currently planning a carnival that will take place in March. Thank you from the bottom of our V.E. hearts."

JANEEN MACON

BIG BUC'S BRAG BOARD is at VE this afternoon to applaud paraprofessional JANEEN MACON.
She noticed the kids wanting to swat at all the fabulous decorations put up by parent volunteers. Her idea was to hang something that they were allowed to touch that would also be educational. The math teachers in third grade took her idea and applied it to the multiplication facts. So now all third graders can jump, touch or hop their multiples. It has been such a great help for the kids to kinesthetically work through these facts. The results in two days are amazing!
THIRD GRADE THANKS MRS. MACON!

GRACE ~ LORIANN ~ JAY

BIG BUC'S BRAG BOARD is at Vidor Junior High this morning.
Oak Forest counselor Lauren Buckley nominated GRACE ANN HERFORD, LORIANN GRAY and JAY WRIGHT, Vidor Junior High students who had a hot chocolate stand this weekend. They raised funds to purchase six bikes for Blue Santa so that other kids could have a good Christmas. Then they purchased and delivered the bikes to the Vidor Police station. That should warm your heart on this cold morning!

ASHLEIGH

BIG BUC'S BRAG BOARD is at VIDOR HIGH SCHOOL today, where Ashleigh was nominated by teacher Alexandria Barney.
"My student, Ashleigh, received an offer from Texas Lutheran University to attend their volleyball scouting camp on Sunday afternoon, March 10, 2019 (the weekend Spring Break begins). Her letter came during my class, so I got her to take a picture. Other universities such as Lamar, Rice, and Prairie View A&M will be in attendance. This is an amazing achievement for anyone, but especially at such a young age. She has opportunities to attend school, continue to play volleyball successfully, and receive a generous amount of scholarship money for doing so. Way to go Ashleigh!"

ABRIANA

BIG BUC'S BRAG BOARD has another nomination from Oak Forest, this one from Mrs. Erin Taylor.
"Last Monday before school started, I was walking to my classroom. The buses had just let the children off. I came across a couple of girls in the middle of the hallway. Abriana, who is a student in Mrs. Rye’s class, was trying to help a little girl who was upset and confused. Abriana was speaking softly, introduced herself, and said she would walk the little girl to her class. I was very proud to see her taking time to be so kind and thoughtful."

Thank you Mr. Bayard for all you do!"

She was nominated by Jammie Bertrand and the ELAR teachers for digging into her budget to provide each teacher with funds to purchase classroom books.Bertrand says, "VMS recently held a book fair that our students were super excited about. We enjoyed getting to go look at new books and make wish lists for our classrooms. Ms. Pierce took things a step further to show and share her love of reading by donating $200.00 worth of books to each ELAR teacher. She is helping grow our classroom libraries and help pass on that love of reading by making more books available for all our students. Thank you so much Ms. Pierce!"

 

KAYLI

BIG BUC'S BRAG BOARD is at Pine Forest Elementary this morning.
Kayli is a student at PFE. Kayli has a kind and loving heart and spirit. She cares about other students and their happiness. While in the gym for specials, often there is a life skills student who does not like the gym and is upset and crying. Without being prompted, Kayli seeks the child out to talk to him and calm him down. She can calm him every time. In the mornings before school while she is in the gym waiting to go to class, there is another kindergarten student who does not like to be without a "support buddy". Kayli always visits with her and keeps her company until the morning bell rings. Then, she takes the little girl by the hand and off they go to class. It has been a long time since I have seen a child so young have such a nurturing attitude toward other young students. Kayli is an example of how we wish every student would behave.

 

NURSE HELPERS

BIG BUC'S BRAG BOARD nominations today come from Nurse Regina Peddy at VJHS.
"I'm nominating Crystal Williams, VJH nurse assistant, VJHS library staff Lisa Martin and Ami Lange, and VISD nurses Jennifer Stanley, Theresa Willis, Teaka Snell, Sharla Cormier, and paraprofessional DeErin Gau. These people always go above and beyond. I was sick on a day scheduled for screenings on my campus. Instead of cancelling, they carried on and the day went off smooth as butter. I'm blessed to work with such amazing people, to know that when I'm ill or can't be there, they are willing and able to make it work without me so I don't have to worry about my kids. Thank you all! You're awesome!"
