Grants of Educational Excellence are awarded annually to classroom and district-wide projects or programs that substantially improve or enhance the educational experience of Blue Valley students.
In November of 2016, during American Education Week, we asked our staff to share their #BVBestDay with us... and did they ever! Out of hundreds of entries, we picked four winners at random. Here are your 2016 #BVBestDay winners!
Out of 60 total nominees, Blue Valley West senior Madison Lilley has won the 2016 Evelyn Gates Award. The Evelyn Gates Award was established to honor a female high school varsity volleyball student-athlete that exhibits top tier skill, spirit and sportsmanship in the Kansas City area. Congratulations Madison!
The Blue Valley Friends of Education Awards Program honors people and organizations in our community who have made outstanding contributions to public education. Congratulations to this years honorees!
Our very own Jason Sickel, choir director at Blue Valley North, is the 2017 Kansas Teacher of the Year! This is one of the highest honors bestowed upon an educator, recognizing excellent teaching in elementary and secondary classrooms of the state. We could not be more excited that this honor recognizes one of Blue Valley’s best and brightest. Congrats, Jason!
We celebrate you, Blue Valley! To all the parents, students and staff who sent in pictures and videos during American Education Week - THANK YOU!!! You truly make every day at Blue Valley Schools a #BVBestDay
Pleasant Ridge Middle school, led by Principal Phoebe Lewis, challenged Blue Valley Superintendent Dr. Todd White to Dance for Kindness. Dr. White and a few of his colleagues responded and challenged Wendy Webb and the Parents as Teachers staff.
