Week of April 10

The +10 Mindset - #LoveMySchoolDay
 Tuesday, April 11 marks the 4th year of a world-wide event I started with a few other educators #LoveMySchoolDay.  It is actually an opportunity for educators, students, parents and community members to use the power of social media to tell the real story about our schools.  During this legislative session, I encourage you to join me in telling our legislators about the great things that are happening in BRISD and advise them on the action you would like to see taken to better support schools.

To the right is a post by BRISD Parent and PTO President, Denise Avery that is a perfect example of telling your story of public education.  Sure, our little district is not perfect, and we have room for improvement.  The point that I would like to make is that we all grow with encouragement and when we share the positives happening in our schools, it allows us to address our weaknesses with balance and more importantly with our eyes clearly fixed on doing what's best for ALL kids.  I hope you will join us on Facebook and Twitter for #LoveMySchoolDay on Tuesday, April 11 as we celebrate the Excellence in BRISD.
