Around 35 Blue Ridge parents, students, board members, and staff took a once in a lifetime trip to Italy. On this 9 day adventure, they toured Florence, Venice, Rome, and Pompeii and had the opportunity to experience Italian food, culture, beautiful art, architecture, the Roman Coliseum, and Mt Vesuvius.
Special thanks goes to Mr. Figueroa, BRHS Principal, for organizing the event. Check out their Instagram feed for more pictures.
Blue Ridge's Jurca Qualifies for State

at the regional meet.
Keeley Jurca qualified for state in Powerlifting last year as a Freshman. This year, she will be making another trip to state because she was one of the top 2A lifters in our region in the 105 lb weight class and fourth overall with a total lifting weight of 550 lbs.
Aside from powerlifting, she competes in track and field in the spring as her other sport. Powerlifting coach, Jarred Seamans said, "She is a fantastic young lady who works hard, is coach-able, and I am honored to be her coach".

House Bill 21
|Raegan Harvey and Pamela Garcia walking in Italy|
Representative Dan Huberty has proposed House Bill 21 to address the funding inequities in public education. (SEE TEXAS TRIBUNE ARTICLE) The bill would add approximately $1.6 million to public education. According to the model runs by Powell & Leon, LLP, Blue Ridge ISD could see a projected increase of approximately $128,000 in 2017 and $129,000 in 2018 to our Maintenance and Operations budget. If passed out of committee, the bill would have to pass the house, be reconciled in the Senate and ultimately approved by the Governor.
