During our weekly visits, we learn about the library, great books to read, webtools for learning, how to access and use information, research and note-taking, and so much more! We check out books, keep reading records of the books we read, and earn rewards for reading books during the year. We learn how to access information on the internet safely, and use our Library website 24/7 to extend what we are learning in our classrooms and in the library. Join us here online!

LT. GOV. REEVES READS TO BES STUDENTS, OFFICIALS VISIT SCHOOL CAMPUSES

August 19, 2016 (BALDWYN, MS) – Baldwyn Schools’ staff and students had a special visit from a few elected state officials on Friday, August 19.

After a breakfast meeting with local business leaders of the Baldwyn community at Agnews’ Restaurant and a tour of the HM Richards facility, Lt. Governor Tate Reeves, Senator Chad McMahan, and Representative Jerry Turner visited the Baldwyn Schools’ campuses to discuss the success and future growth plans of Baldwyn Schools with Superintendent Jason McKay and other administration.

The officials also made time to visit with Baldwyn Elementary fourth grade students. Lt. Gov. Reeves read a children’s book entitled The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton to the fourth grade students in the BES library. The students were commended for their 2015-16 top state 3rd Grade Gateway Reading assessment scores. Lt. Gov. Reeves also shared inspirational advice about the importance of reading throughout life.

“I congratulate you on your success as third graders last year on the state reading assessment. Reading is the most important part of you being successful in life,” Lt. Gov. Reeves said.

Lt. Gov. Reeves also expressed gratitude to the BES teachers for their hard work and success in the classroom.

Senator Chad McMahan also spoke to BES fourth graders with words of encouragement about continuing to focus on their academic performance.

“You are all champions. You have already made an impact and are a special group of students. You can achieve anything you want to achieve. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t achieve something. You can achieve anything you set your mind to, no matter your age, race, or gender,” Senator McMahan said.

Senator McMahan serves District 6 including Itawamba and Lee Counties of Mississippi. Lt. Gov. Reeves presides over the Mississippi Senate. Representative Turner serves District 18 including Lee, Prentiss, and Itawamaba Counties of Mississippi.
