Week of February 13

The +10 Mindset
Congrats to our CX Debate team for
winning 2nd at District which qualifies them
for competitions that UIL State this spring.
Congrats to our kids and coaches for
their hard work.
Part of our +10 Mindset is creating a competitive spirit in every student, for that will help them become successful in life. At BRISD we are pushing ourselves to focus on academic excellence through student growth in learning as well as through academic competition. The pinnacle of competitive excellence was Vince Lombardi, and he said the following:

"Winning is a Habit".

Watch your thoughts, they become your beliefs.

Watch your beliefs, they become your words.

Watch your words, they become you actions.
Watch your actions, they become your habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.

We will focus on building character in every student by promoting and teaching positive beliefs, words, actions, and habits in our students in our extracurricular programs. This week, an example of our quest for academic excellence spotlights our CX Debate team.

Our HS UIL team began their district competition season with CX (Cross Examination) Debate this week.  Our CX debate team of Gavin Lacalle, Pamela Garcia, and Gage Robertson won 2nd place and will advance to State.  Congratulations to Coach Paige Jacobson. We are looking forward to our students continuing to succeed throughout the semester.

Another example of the +10 Mindset is our Lady Tiger Girls Basketball Team which made the playoffs this year.  Under the guidance of Coaches Terra Mathers and Greg Morrison, the Lady Tigers compiled a record of 14-15 with a record of taking 4th place in our district.

  1. Congratulations CX debate! After having Gavin in debate last year, I knew he would do awesome. Pam and Gage are intelligent and personable as well. I know they will show what Blue Ridge Tigers can do at state!
