Byrne Creek and the ASCD Whole Child Award

It has almost been a year since Byrne Creek found out that we won the ASCD’s 2012 Vision in Action: Whole Child Award.

We have had a fantastic year with many opportunities to share best practice and learn from others all over North America doing similar work helping to build healthier communities.

Talk a look at the ASCD movie that was released to feature the work done at  Byrne Creek!

Byrne Creek Secondary School’s “I Am From Byrne Creek” Poem.

I didn’t record the whole speech….but this is the best part! I hope that you enjoy it!

This is a poem that students in Denise Ferreira’s English class wrote about what it means to be from Byrne Creek. This was a part of Mr. Rawnsley’s acceptance speech in Philadelphia this morning, March 25, 2012….where Byrne Creek was honored to receive the ASCD’s 2012 Vision in Action: The Whole Child Award.
