Principal, Pam Colbert, shared the timeline of events as they occurred in 2011. The event was held to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11 and to teach students how to properly retire a flag. The ceremony taught students the reason why you would retire a flag. The scouts demonstrated how to show reverence and respect for the flag as it is retired from service.

In the Spotlight

Congratulations to Newly AIG Certified Staff at EES!  During the past year, Julie Reed, Sheri Couch, Tammy Coley and Holly Simmons, were selected to participate in an AIG Certification program through Duke University.  The group worked very hard and successfully completed the program.  On August 16, the cohort of teachers from Elkin, Winston Salem, Rockingham and Durham, attended a graduation ceremony at Duke University.  
 
                          Congratulations to our new DUKE Graduates!
Last year a group of teachers applied to the AIG Certification program through Duke University.  Julie Reed, Sheri Couch, Tammy Coley and Holly Simmons, were selected to participate in an AIG Certification program through Duke University. The group of teachers from Elkin Elementary joined a cohort of 28 teachers from across North Carolina.
  The group worked very hard and successfully completed the program. They attended sessions at Duke, weekly classes via video feed, observed other programs and completed a week long practicum camp in the summer that benefited the AIG students in Elkin. The quality of work and the expectations of the courses were very rigorous.  The teachers completed the program after teaching students during the day.   On August 16, the cohort of teachers from Elkin, Winston Salem, Rockingham and Durham, attended a graduation ceremony at Duke University.
     During the ceremony, all cohort members completing the program were awarded certification and recognized for their accomplishments.  In addition, there were 7 special awards given to individual teachers.  Both Julie Reed and Holly Simmons received Teacher Scholarship Awards for excellence in their work during the program.  Tammy Coley received Teacher Leadership Award for exhibiting leadership in the area of AIG and Sheri Couch was awards the Advocacy Award for her contributions towards advocacy for gifted learners.
     We are very proud of the work and accomplishments of these dedicated educators.  Please join us in congratulating them on their recent certification.
