In Mrs. Bellamy and Mrs. Peppers 4th grade class, Mr. Fuller facilitated a lesson on the water cycle using Minecraft Education. The students built a water cycle within the world and were able to see the complete cycle of water. Thank you, Mr. Fuller!

Mr. Fuller showed the students how to create 3-D cell models to go along with their animal and plant cell unit. Each student created a 3-D plant cell and will get their very own copy using the 3-D printer.
Ms. McGowan’s fifth grade class went to the STEM lab on Thursday after learning about plant and animal cells in Science. Chris Fullar showed them how to make 3D plant and animal cell models. It was so fun and engaging!
A huge THANK YOU goes to Broad River Soil and Water Conservation District for our new BCES High Tunnel. We plan to use this high tunnel for years to come as we continue to increase our agricultural opportunities for our Banks County students.
At the ceremony held today, the high tunnel was dedicated to Dr. Wendy Fuschetti. Dr. Fuschetti has spent countless hours working to improve our ag program here at BCES. Thanks to all who have helped to create an innovative ag program at BCES!
AT&T Georgia Telecom Pioneers, Northeast Georgia Mountaineers Council,
presented all 3rd grade students at Banks County Elementary with dictionaries. The goal of this program is to assist students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers, and resourceful learners by providing them with their own personal dictionary. Our country and our world face many challenges, and we need to prepare our young people to be strong productive citizens who can succeed and grow and solve problems in a rapidly changing world. Thank you for your support of our students at BCES!
