Yearbook Cover Design Contest!

Submitted by tiffany.manwaring on Wed, 03/24/2021 - 20:08


It's that time of year for students to bring out their art skills and join the challenge of creating a yearbook cover for Sierra Bonita's yearbook! The school theme this year is, "Be a Light".  For students who would like to participate in this, we ask that they use a blank 8x10 piece of paper (no lined notebook paper) and include our school name somewhere on the front (incorporating it into the picture is a common way to do so).  There is a basket of blank paper at the front office for those who would like to get their paper there.  The illustrated image needs to be in vertical form rather than horizontal. Please have students write their full name, teacher and grade level on the back, and turn it in to the front office secretaries. The deadline for the yearbook cover page is Friday, April 2nd.  We look forward to all of the wonderful entries from our students at Sierra Bonita!!  Good luck, and thank you!! The Yearbook Committee

Mrs. Coutlee is Awarded UCET Innovative Teacher Award for 2021!

UCET, Neisha Coutlee

Mrs. Neisha Coutlee is in her fifth year of teaching. Neisha loves to use technology in her classroom and is not afraid to try blended learning strategies with her students. She also enjoys finding new digital tools to make her job easier and she is obsessed with anything Google.

During soft closure, Neisha looked for a variety of opportunities to engage her students. One of the activities that she did to engage her students was creating a scavenger hunt. She would take a picture of something around the city and students would need to find where the picture was taken. They would report back on a Google Form and talk about it during their class Zoom meetings.

Students loved being able to share where the picture was taken and students were excited to come to Zoom class to share. She also uses her class website to keep her students and parents informed about what is going on in her classroom. Her website has links to video tutorials that she’s created, as well as, links to the daily schedule with tasks.

This school year, Neisha has started using a lot of blended learning in her classroom and uses the data from her digital formative assessments to guide her instruction. She uses Classkick to involve her in-person students, as well as, her students who are home on quarantine. Classkick allows her to move around the room and really work with individual students at their level.

Neisha is definitely an innovative teacher in our school district!
