From the Principal

{title}
Thank you for visiting our school’s website. As a member of the JBE family, we hope you will also visit our Jesse Boyd Facebook page, Twitter feed, and Youtube channel. We are an active school striving to educate young people to become lifelong learners and leaders. We do this by working on achieving three main goals: becoming a model IB school, implementing reader’s and writer’s workshop in all classrooms, and becoming a model school for innovation in the use of technology in the classroom.
Our staff works diligently to maintain high educational standards by providing a rigorous and challenging curriculum. We strive to guide our students to read and think critically, solve problems, and communicate effectively orally and in print, and to utilize technology in relevant ways. Along the way we have a lot of fun by creating a children’s first philosophy and celebrating the success of children.

7 Shares, Cares and DARES!

7 Shares, Cares and DARES!
Primed with excitement and sporting their pride, the District 7 team of teachers and staff donned their individual school colors and celebrated the start of a new academic year with the annual back-to-school program known as 7Shares on Thursday, August 14. The 1200 employees of the District packed the Spartanburg High School gym for a morning of inspiration, motivation, and recognition.
Bobbi Kennedy, Special Projects Director with ETV, brought special recognition to Adam Babcock, technology integration specialist at Spartanburg High School, for being named a 2014 PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovator. After a nationwide search, Adam was selected as one of only 100 educators from across the country and the only one in South Carolina. He was chosen for his passion and commitment to innovative teaching practices that integrate digital media and technology in the classroom.
Praised for their commitment in the classroom, 13 teachers were honored as the top educator in their school with the District Teacher of the Year award going to Marquice Clark from the Cleveland Academy of Leadership. Eleven first-year teachers were also honored for outstanding performance during their induction year. Leslie Sloan from Spartanburg High School was awarded the Crystal Apple - the top award for a new teacher.

MONSTERS

MONSTERS
Jesse Boyd students worked hard last year to earn their hero status. They did this by completing task beyond their classwork and homework because a hero is someone who does more than is expected. 87% of JBE students earned their hero status. We are so proud of our students and how you showed grit and perseverance. This year our students will become MONSTERS. Why monsters? Monsters show so many of the IB Learner Profile attributes and IB attitudes that we try as IB learners to exemplify each and every day: Curiosity Principled Risk-takers Caring Communicators Enthusiasm Creativity Integrity Cooperation Confidence Inquirers Thinkers Appreciation Reflection We can’t wait to see what our students are going to accomplish with the theme this year.
