Week of November 5

The +10 Mindset - Growing as a Community
The 2nd Annual Blue Ridge Festival was fantastic, and it is a living testimony to how much we are growing as a community.  Not only did we see tremendous numbers of people in attendance.  We also saw more people than every donating their time, talents, and gifts to make our community an even better place.  Thank you so everyone who volunteered their time to run a booth, organize a game, cook food, lead your group's performance and make this a great time for our community.  Go to the district Facebook post to see a sample of all the fun that was had last week.

Don't forget to vote on Tue, Nov 6.
Voting will be held at BRISD Admin. Building

Facility Information & Next Meeting
The next meeting of the Long-Range Facility Planning Committee is Thursday, November 8 at the Blue Ridge ISD Administration Building.  Everyone is invited to attend.  The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss the facility upgrades made by the committee and the potential cost of those projects.  In addition to our architects, WRA, Brian Grubbs from SAMCO (BRISD's financial advisor) will be in attendance to share financial information to the group.  The group will also tour the buildings to get a better perspective of the needs that the district is facing in regard to building capacity.  Below is a graphic that illustrates the current capacity of our buildings and what the future holds in the next 5 years.
