Innovation Day Success!
Relationships Are Essential for Learning
We are grateful that our staff works to build positive relationships and learning experiences with students.
Surry County held its Special Olympics recently and each school held morning parades to cheer athletes on as they loaded buses. The encouragement was loud and students enjoyed the support of peers and staff. Great work!

Going the Extra Mile - April GEMs
BHT would like to recognize Andrew Draughn for going the extra mile. He is an asset to our team. Andrew goes the extra mile in building relationships with his students on bus 33. He has established partnerships with local businesses to acquire rewards for his students to recognize leadership behavior on the bus.
Going the Extra Mile for Jones, goes to our two student teachers/interns: Kaitlin Teague and Emma Wagoner. We appreciate everything that they have done for the students at Jones Intermediate School this spring, and we wish them all the best in their future endeavors.
MAMS would like to recognize Alex Tedder and Heather Stafford. They successfully planned the 7th/8th grade trip to Washington DC. Students had a wonderful time and everyone came back safe and happy. It takes a lot of time and planning to execute a successful trip with a large number of middle school students.
MAHS wants to recognize Andrea Brown. Using her skillset as a graphic designer, Andrea Brown has helped develop marketing publications for various programs at MAHS and in our district. Her extra time and effort are making a tremendous difference as we communicate with the MA community.
- Central Office recognizes:
- Larry Davis and his efforts for holding a large regional meeting at our new Community Central Office for CDCs/SPCs
- Teachers and coaches who have worked to create summer camp opportunities for students.
Innovators of the Month for April
BHT – Kirsten Martin
BHT would like to recognize Kirsten Martin as our Innovator of the Month. Over the last two years she has been dedicated to learning multiple curriculums and transforming her classroom environment. She is a true advocate for her students and works closely with their families. She seeks out resources and collaborates readily with a range of specialists to support her students’ unique needs.
Jones would like to recognize its Innovator of the month as K.T. Jones. Ms. Jones has recently been flexible and innovative with her schedule in order to meet the needs of all of the EC students at our school. Ms. Jones spends time investing in the needs of her students and their families! She also continues to grow as a professional in the field of education by pursuing an advanced degree.
MAMS: Beth Lowry has a unique and intentional way of creating relationships with students. Every student needs an advocate and someone they can go to in school. Ms. Lowry builds rapport with many students who may not have another support system. Students are motivated by the culture she establishes in her classroom and willing to put in the extra effort needed to make growth in her ELA classroom. Her instructional approach is a unique combination of traditional pedagogical strategies such as writing and vocabulary building with an emphasis on building skills necessary for state assessments.
MAHS: Bryan Hayes has developed and implemented a model AP Calculus review for his students. This 6-week process will increase skills and build confidence prior to AP testing later on in May. Goal setting, data analysis, and student conferences are a key components of this process. The students know exactly where they are and need to be on a daily basis to prepare for this important test.
