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.

D7 Selected to Join the Nation’s League of Innovative Schools
Spartanburg School District Seven has been named one of 11 new members accepted into the League of Innovative Schools, by Digital Promise, a national, independent nonprofit organization authorized by Congress to accelerate innovation in education.
As the only district from South Carolina tapped for membership this fall, District Seven was selected from a competitive and national pool of applicants based on its leadership, evidence of results, innovative vision for learning, and commitment to collaboration. The League now includes 57 districts and education agencies that collectively represent more than 3 million students across 27 states.
“This is a tremendous honor that certainly underscores our goal to be a model School District in the Southeast and the most innovative school district in South Carolina,” said District Seven Superintendent, Dr. Russell Booker. “Our journey to this juncture is directly tied to our dedication to enhance the educational experience of our students. Our one-to-one digital initiative, 7 Ignites, has placed a mobile learning device in the hands of every District 7 student from grades 3 through 12. The result is a level of student engagement that is exciting to see and an opportunity to accelerate our children’s ability to harness the power of technology and digital learning.”

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.
