What is the B_Ridge to Excellence?
When I think of Blue Ridge ISD, I think about how much the school does to prepare all kids for a prosperous future.  To put that a better way, Blue Ridge is essentially a bridge to every student's future, and we all want it to be an excellent one.  In order for that to happen, we must be the Bridge to Excellence by working together to achieve our common goal of Excellence for Every Tiger, and that includes all students and all staff.

This webpage will serve as my weekly communication to the Blue Ridge ISD community.  It will inform you of upcoming events and important information.  To make sure you don't miss out on the B_Ridge to Excellence, I encourage you to subscribe by email in the upper right hand section titled, "FOLLOW BY EMAIL".  In the upper left section , you can also subscribe to posts in your feed.  At the bottom, there is a section for you to leave a comment, post questions and make suggestions  Please note that all comments are moderated before they are published.  My goal for this weekly communication will be to inform and facilitate two-way communication between the school and the community.

The BRidge to Excellence Starts with You
To the students, teachers, parents and community members of Blue Ridge, I would like to say thank you for your warm welcome.  This week blew by so fast, and you all made this a fantastic week.  I met so many great people at every campus and one thing is certain.  Everyone wants Blue Ridge students to be the best they can be.  As we wrap up the year, I would like to ask for your help and input by answering a few questions for me.
  1. What is great about Blue Ridge that we want to continue?
  2. What are areas for growth that we need to address this summer and next year?
To get your input, I would like to ask you to complete the following Google Form.  Please know that your input is valuable.  With it, we will be able to create processes and systems of supports to better help all students learn, but without it, we will never know what you think is needed to make our schools the most effective and efficient that they can be.  We value and appreciate your input.
