Week of October 31

The +10 Mindset
The 2nd quarter of the school year has begun, and teachers have been focusing on how they will increase the rigor or complexity in their instruction and assessments.  If we want our students to be successful academically and prepared for college and career, increasing the rigor of instruction is critically important.  If your student experiences difficulty with learning, please visit with your child's teacher or encourage your child to initiate that conversation.  Experiencing difficulty in learning is normal, but overcoming that difficulty is what leads to students to discover their excellence.

BRISD Teachers are Learning through Twitter. 
Did you know that our teachers are learning at all hours? One way that our teachers are learning is through Twitter, and some of our teachers participated in last Tuesday's #BRISDLearns chat led by Kindergarten teacher, Melissa Stiney, over the topic of technology integration. Great ideas were shared by Danny Henderson, Kimberly Fritchman, Lisa Reeves, Jennifer Stroup, Stacey Raymer, Stephanie McPherson, Amy Hopkins, and Danny Henderson
