Week of May 1

Congrats to Dr. Scott Leslie, for being named
97.5 KLAK Teacher of the Month.  He is
an outstanding educator who represents Blue
Ridge ISD well through his words and actions.
The +10 Mindset starts with Teacher Excellence
The week of May 8-12 is Teacher Appreciation Week.  As we prepare for this week, we would like to
recognize and celebrate all of our teachers and staff because they are doing great things for our students each and every day.  After all our student success starts by having the best teachers and staff members serving our students and one another.

 JOIN US - This week, I would like to invite you on Tuesday to tell your story about the great things that BRISD does for our students, staff, and community.  On Tuesday, please use your Facebook and Twitter to celebrate each staff member for their hard work and with each post we will use the hashtags, #TxEdTuesday.


Parents, make sure your student gets plenty of rest for EOC. Did you know that earning a score of 63 on the Algebra 1 test will make your student college ready and eligible to take dual credit math as a junior or senior.  Here are the dates of the tests:

  • Algebra 1 - Tuesday, May 2
  • Biology - Wednesday, May 3
  • US History - Thursday, May 4
Make sure your child get plenty of rest the night before the test.  Ensure they get a good breakfast with protein.  Protein energizes the brain, and make sure your child gets lots of encouragement and motivation.  Motivation can add 10 points on any test.  

Check out the learning in Mrs. Stephens' class.  This week she had an incubator
with chicken eggs, and they hatched!!!  See the excitement of our students 
learning about the life cycle of a chicken.
