The +10 Mindset - Seniors 2017
The 2017 school year is coming to an end, and graduation marks the hallmark of 13 years of formal education.  In this post, I would like to spotlight our senior class as they finish their education in Blue Ridge ISD on Saturday, May 27, 2017 at 11 a.m.  We wish our seniors the best of luck and pray for God's speed and blessings as they take the next step in their lives.

Kindergarten Publishes Book
Kindergarten students can read and write, and they do it so well that they published their very own  book.  Check out the video created by Mrs. Ellingson to see just how awesome our kids are.

Don't Forget to Monitor your Child's Summer TV Activity
6th grades at Moody Gardens in Galveston
There are several good shows on NetFlix, but there are some that are too mature for our students.  One example is the series, "13 Reasons Why".  While I have not seen the show, I have learned that the premise of the story is about a teenage student's suicide.  As a parent, I want to urge you to remember the importance of monitoring what your children watch and  the importance of using the parental settings on your devices.  Children never stop learning and being exposed to both good and bad influences in this world.  Our job as parents is to guide them and at times limit their exposure to things that could potentially have an adverse impact on them.
