Mrs. Sheila Lavala has supported and taught students in Boundary County School District 101 for the past five years.  She has spent the last 3 years at Valley View Elementary School teaching students in the Title 1 program.  She plays a large role in our Title 1 room and is a leader within our great school.
The staff at VVES appreciate Ms. Lavala’s time, energy, and her positive attitude.  Another colleague stated, “she always puts students first and does a great job keeping them engaged.”  Mrs. Lavala is a wonderful team player who has a heart for all people and treats everyone with kindness.
Mrs. Lavala’s students like her because “she helps us with our work and makes it fun!”  Another student stated, “she makes me laugh while I’m learning.”
Mrs. Lavala has a husband and a son who is a senior at Bonners Ferry High School.  During her free time she enjoys watching her son play football and compete in pole vaulting in the spring.  She also enjoys gardening, organizing events for women throughout the inland northwest and working with her husband at Boundary Marital Arts.   
BCSD 101 is very lucky to have Mrs. Lavala within our district educating and supporting students.

Boundary County School District by the Numbers
The Top 10 in BCSD:

10) Participation in extracurricular activities is again at an all-time high; our students are active! Athletics are just one avenue. Our FFA, Choir, Band, Drama and Robotics are in full swing!
9) Positive behaviors and support out number discipline referrals and disruptive activities in a huge way.
8) Love & Logic and PEAK Strategies are creating relationships between staff and students; common sense is making a comeback!
7)  The Facilities Committee has set a strong direction for an appropriate use of district funds.
6) The H.S. athletic teams are competitive. Cross Country, Soccer, Volleyball, Cheer and the Dance Teams can compete with anybody. Our Football Team is now entering league play; I feel sorry for the other football teams in our conference. District and State competition is coming soon—stay tuned!
5) The Admin Team in Boundary County is the best I have ever worked with—our future is BRIGHT!
4) Communication between the City and the Schools have never been better. Thank you Mayor Sims and Chief Watson!
3) Our Board of Trustees have a united and central focus and that is “What is BEST for the kids!” Next meeting October 10th at Mount Hall at 6:00 PM.
2) Expectations for all staff and students have been raised. Sportsmanship in all activities is expected. An advisory group, the Financial Understanding Committees is being formed to support Board decisions.
1) Boundary County is a GREAT PLACE to raise our children and it is getting better. We live in an incredible area alive with wonder, opportunity, and wildlife. 
On that note, I will end with a quick reminder. Every year I wonder why we have the opportunity that wildlife comes in the form of head lice..….but they happen every place I have worked and they are back! We do have a no nit policy but we also have the necessary products to get rid of these little critters. Please do not blame the schools, yourselves or the kids. Head lice do not discriminate. Knowledge will prevail!!! Have a great school year, I promise we will set the stage for success. Please meet us there!

Joanne Cady.jpg


Joanne Cady is September’s Boundary County School District Certified Employee of the Month!

Joanne Cady is a special person. She has the qualities needed to do her job excellently and displays them daily. She is patient, adaptable, and organized. This school would not operate in the fashion it does without Joanne.  

First and foremost, Joanne is patient. She is able to slowly and calmly deal with issues which would frustrate others quickly. She cares so much for each child she can’t help but make sure they learn no matter how long it takes. She often reminds me to give another chance or try another way in order to make sure the student has the best chance of success.

Joanne is also very adaptable. Her room was recently relocated during a busy time of the year. Rather than be angry she worked with the team to help make her new environment the way she wanted it. She faces a lot of unforeseen circumstances and always adapts to make the best of them.

It takes a lot of organization to do her job and fortunately Joanne has that skill maxed out. She keeps track of students individually not only in her class but in others as well. I can always count on walking in her room to find out what is going on school wide even in other teachers’ classrooms!

I’m not sure how she does it all but Joanne is a lifesaver at our school. I can honestly say I would not be able to do her job and I certainly can’t do mine without her doing hers. Thanks to Joanne’s patience, adaptability, and organization we can rest easy that students at BCMS are well taken care of.
