Certified Employee of the Month

Mrs. Andrea Fuentes has made learning fun and relevant for the past 10 years as an educator, but Boundary County School District 101 has only had her for the past three years.  She plays a large role within VVES where she teachers 4th grade and is on several committees.

The staff at VVES appreciate Mrs. Fuentes willingness to always learn and improve within her classroom.  One staff member stated that, “she does a fantastic job at challenging all learners and really making education relevant and fun.”  Another colleague said, “Mrs. Fuentes is always happy and chipper with her students and comes to work with a positive attitude.”

Students in her class state that Mrs. Fuentes, “is awesome and fun.”  One student said that “she uses candy bars to teach us fractions!”  Another one commented that “Mrs. Fuentes holds me accountable and makes me think every day.” A boy said “she helps us learn through her personal stories and is the best teacher ever.” 

Mrs. Fuentes has a husband named Ruben, and two great kids, Laura who is 5, and Pedro who is 3.  She also has 15 chickens, 2 cats, and a dog that all call Bonners Ferry home. 

In her free time she enjoys gardening, visiting national parks across the country, hiking, and spending time with family and friends.  She is also a huge Boise State fan…. Go Broncos!

BCSD 101 is very lucky to have Mrs. Andrea Fuentes within our district educating and supporting students.

Dear Friends of Valley View,

Although it is cold outside things inside of Valley View are heating up with many activities going on this month.  We have so much to be thankful for and great students to highlight. 

The month of December we celebrated the monthly character trait of generosity.   It is my privilege to announce that the following students were named, Super Star Citizen of the Month:

The school wide Elks National Free Throw Shooting competition is complete and I would like to highlight the following students for winning their division.  Taren Bateman and Peyton Hinthorn won the 8 & 9 year old girls and boys division, and Sydney Hinthorn and Asher Williams won the 10 & 11 year old division.  All (4) students represented VVES very well in Sandpoint on January 7th and both Taren Bateman and Asher Williams advanced and will shoot in Kellogg on January 21st.  Please wish them good luck when you see them.  Please thank Mrs. Petesch for organizing this great event once again.
