As always, if I can ever be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at 281-356-6088 or by email at

BBJH Weekly Activity Schedule

Please take a look at the BBJH Weekly Activity Schedule. This schedule provides information regarding everything taking place at BBJH over a two week period. This particular schedule covers January 28-February 1 and February 4-8. Click here to view the schedule.

MISD College Symposium

Join us for our first college symposium. Junior and high school parents and students are invited to attend this event. Learn about the IB program, Advanced Placement courses and Dual Credit courses and how all of these can prepare our students for college. Click here to view the flyer for more information!

Morning Drop Off

As you're aware, Morning Drop Off can be very busy and somewhat hectic at times. With this in mind, please encourage your students to walk all the way to the crosswalk if you are dropping them off in the outside lane. We've had an increasing number of students walking in between cars which is a cause for concern, as we want to keep everyone safe. Office Justice will be at Morning Drop Off directing students that direction. Thanks for your help!


Congrats to Mrs. Warren for being selected this week to receive the BBJH Holla award. Mrs. Warren does an awesome job leading the Social Studies Department at BBJH. Mrs. Warren prepares great lesson, is always willing to help and share, and is just an all-around hard worker. Congrats Mrs. Warren!

Our student "Holla" recipient this week was Nook Brown. Nook's teachers said she goes out of her way to help her peers, is hard working, and has an excellent attitude. Congrats Nook!
