DANCING CLASSROOMS

The Horace O’ Bryant School’s 5th grade class would like to invite you to attend their Dancing Classrooms Culminating Event. This wonderful event will take place on Thursday, January 28th at 1:30 in the HOB Cafetorium.
The HOB 5th grade has been working diligently for the past ten weeks, perfecting their ballroom dancing skills and are excited to perform the Rumba, the Foxtrot, the Merengue, the Swing, the Waltz and the Tango in front of the entire elementary school, family & friends.
Dancing Classrooms is a nationally recognized program that has been chronicled in the films Mad Hot Ballroom and Take the Lead. Our Dancing Classrooms Teaching Artists are local instructors who emphasize not only the technical dancing skills, but respect and self-esteem.
We would love for you to come and see what these students have been working so very hard on!

TEACHER OF THE YEAR
Congratulations to Horace O’ Bryant School teacher Ms. Nicole Smith. In December she was selected by her colleagues as the 2015 Horace O’ Bryant School Teacher of the Year! Today, January 15th , Superintendent Mark Porter informed Ms. Smith that she was selected as the 2015 Monroe County Teacher of the Year!
 
Principal Mike Henriquez stated “Ms. Smith’s involvement and leadership have been a critical element to the success of our school. In addition to AVID and WEB she currently is our 7th grade team leader, Secretary for School Advisory, Mathematics Department Leader and our middle school coach for Positive Behavior Intervention System. Most notably, through her efforts and our PBIS Team, Horace O’ Bryant School just earned Silver Status as a model school for 2014. Nicole has also been an advocate for Students with Disabilities by assisting in the development of our middle school schedule and monitoring I.E.P. caseloads. Through her leadership and involvement in all of these programs she has been the single greatest factor in improving the culture and climate of our school. Nicole’s ability to accomplish all of this has been truly amazing, and she is continuing her leadership efforts by participating in the aspiring administrator program.”
 
“As we know, Monroe County School District has many excellent teachers, and Nicole is certainly at the top of the list. She has devoted countless hours to our school, students, and community. On behalf of our family here at H.O.B., again we say congratulations to Ms. Smith as the Monroe County Teacher of the Year.”

JOIN US IN PARTICIPATING IN AN HOUR OF CODE THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 7!
Check out this website  https://code.org/learn  and create a Star Wars Game or your very own Flappy Bird!  Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this. If you heard about the Hour of Code last year, you might know it made history. In the first Hour of Code, 15 million students tried computer science. Last year, that number increased to 60 million students! The Hour of Code  is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics.
GREAT JOB WITH THE FUTURE PHYSICISTS MS. MIRA, MS. ALSOBROOKS, AND 8TH GRADE STUDENTS!
