Every 5 years our district participates in the school accreditation process. The review procedures are conducted by AdvancEd, an organization that conducts rigorous reviews of educational institutions and systems across the nation to ensure that all learners realize their full potential.
A major component of the review process is the collection of data from our stakeholders on their perceptions of the overall school and district functions. In order to compile this data, we are requesting your participation in a short survey. Responses are anonymous. Data from this appraisal will be compiled and included in a school report that will become evidence for the district review process.
The link to the survey is below. Please provide your input on this survey by November 15th.
We appreciate your input and continuous support for our school and the school district.

When I first transitioned to the school system as a Nurse, my coworkers at the hospital thought I was crazy. They would tell me I would be bored, that I would not have the sense of fulfillment as a Nurse. My entire Nursing career, I have been in critical care. I have worked in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Emergency Medicine with Trauma and a Recovery Room. I have been told I function best under the pressures of life and death.
Walter Bickett fourth and fifth grade students had an awesome opportunity this week. The Marvin Ridge African American Club visited WBES to donate and deliver books to Walter Bickett students. These Marvin Ridge students who are currently high school juniors and seniors took a few minutes out of their busy day to share from their personal experiences of what it takes to be prepared to enter, compete and complete high school and to be prepared for college. Marvin Ridge students shared the emphasis of how key it is to arrive in middle school prepared.
