Before the holiday break, BES Principal Kent announced December’s Mountaineer; Climbers, Guides and Merit recipients. Being a Mountaineer means being responsible, safe and respectful.

Mountaineer Merits are given out throughout the month by BES staff and bus drivers to celebrate students who are demonstrating these traits. The students are given merits, which are deposited in the Mountaineer Merit container found in the main hallway. At the assembly each month Principal Kent draws 10 merit recipients, which include both in-person and remote students (5 from kindergarten-second grade and 5 from third to fifth grades) who then receive a prize.

Mountain Guides and Mountain Climbers are chosen by the teachers each month. Mountain Guide awards go to students who consistently follow the expectations at school and serve as role models for others. A Mountain Climber award goes to students who are working really hard and showing improvement to meet the behavior expectations.

Congratulations to December’s award recipients.
