Week of October 17

The +10 Mindset

+10 Goal-Setting

Example of student +10 Goal Sheet completed by students
This week our students completed their first 6 weeks assessments.  As part of the assessment process, students were lead by teachers and principals in analyzing their scores to determine which skills need additional time and support and how students are doing at reaching their +10 Goal (increasing their performance by 10 points.  This week, take a moment to ask your student what his/her +10 goal is their core areas.  Our goal is to ensure that all students measure their learning by focusing on their own unique growth.

6 Words

BRHS student, Dawson Wright, created a phenomenal video called 6 Words.  The video describes what our very own Blue Ridge teachers believe their legacy is at BRISD.  I hope you will take a moment to watch this powerful video by a great student.
