Our Brittan Acres Staff hosted last week’s district-wide Lucy Calkins Readers/Writers Workshop. All grade levels, TK-3, participated in two days of Professional Development. One class at each grade level hosted teachers from across the district to model Readers/Writers workshop mini lessons.

On Thursday, November 1, our Brittan Acres (BA) Safety Patrol was featured at our San Carlos School District Board Meeting. Student representatives, Brayden Berta, Bayla Jennings, Maddie Briant, and Devon Woodsome presented to our school board the BA Safety Patrol program. Third grade BA teacher and Safety Patrol program coordinator, Alison Lansing introduced our students and the program. Safety Patrol is a long-standing BA tradition which fosters student leadership and safety. For the past two school years Safety Patrol was coordinated by second grade teacher, Eve Mencher. Our students explained the program components: Morning Drop Off, Flag Service, and Hallway monitoring. We are proud of our BA safety patrolees and are grateful to them for their service to our school. Enjoy some pictures of our patrolees in action and at the Board Meeting.
