Battle of the Billtown Houses 3

Good Evening and Happy Friday to All the Lords and Ladies of Billtown.
Williamsfield Schools wishes you a wonderful weekend!

A reminder that the "Battle of the Billtown Houses" has Officially Begun!
As I compose this message, The House of Creativity sits at the top of the Leaderboard with 75 points!
In second place...The House of Perseverance with 65 Points!
And in Third Place, The House of Courage with 55 Points!
But this is a Marathon, not a Sprint! Any House stands to win the Ultimate Battle.
Check out our Facebook Page to find out which students represent our 9 Houses.
Also, students should visit their Learner Sites for updates regarding points, badges and challenges.

Please take note that I launched my Annual Creative Challenge Today with a twist! I've made it a House Challenge!
This year, all participating students can earn up to 15 points for their House.
All you have to do is read the rules and regulations, which ask you to create a Scribble Stone, based on a book that I am sharing with our students.
To hear me read the book, visit "Mr. Binder's Creative Scribble Stone Challenge" posted on Facebook and our Web Page or visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4VjXUZF9ic&feature=youtu.be

Together as a family, you can contribute to Williamsfield Schools, one stone at a time!
Students may submit up to 3 stones each!

So let's see your creativity shine!
Find a stone, add some art and spread creativity in our school community.
I can't wait to see what you create!
Enjoy your weekend, make some art, and I'll see you on Monday!

Battle of the Billtown Houses 2

The Battle has officially begun! If you haven’t already done so, be sure to check out your Student Learner Site to Discover your Billtown House and World.

It’s also important to Check Out the House Point Leader Board. As I Compose this, the House of Creativity is currently in the lead with 45 Points. This changes daily, so be sure to visit your Learner Site for updates.

Tomorrow, I will release the Full List of Houses and their members, so you can find out what other students share your House. Together, you can work to become the Champions of 2020-2021. Do you have what it takes to win the Battle?

Also, Tomorrow I will Launch my own very Special challenge, with an opportunity to earn significant points for your House.

Stay Tuned, Tomorrow, for a Special Announcement.

Until then, Listen Up! I will Award 5 Points to Any Student who takes a picture of themselves checking out their Learner Site. All you have to do is take a Selfie, or have one of your family members take a pic of you on your computer or Chromebook, with Your Learner Site Visible on the Screen. Email Pictures to me By 8:15am Tomorrow Morning at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

I look forward to seeing your Pictures.

Until Then, May You Represent Your House with Truth, Dignity, and Honor.
