Happy New Year!

We are excited to welcome back our Brock Tigers on Wednesday, January 5th. We have asked the staff to park in the back parking lot to allow parents to utilize the drop off lane and the parking lot. If you are utilizing the parking lot, please escort your students to the crosswalk. Please do not drop students off at the corner of the bus lane from 1187. Thank you for helping us keep our students safe!

Mrs. K's Counseling Corner



  • Our "Essential 36" manner of the week: "Encourage others."

  • In PEACE classes, students are continuing to participate in the BISD’s initiative, “7 Mindsets”, specifically “Attitude of Gratitude.” Students will learn to turn problems or negative situations around. They will also surprise others around the school with thank-you notes, as well as identify people in the school community whom we should thank.

  • For more fun family activities around the area, click on the "Fort Worth Kids Out and About" newsletter. Mrs. K. subscribes to the free e-weekly newsletter so here is the link if you want to do the same!

  • Sensory Exploration is a free program for families with children of all ages who are on the autism spectrum. Families can explore artworks depicting motion and movement in the galleries, enjoy interactive experiences, and get creative while making art! While the needs of individuals with autism are the focus of this program, it is also intended to be fun for parents, siblings (of all ages), and other relatives.

  • More family activities: CityFest, Burleson: This is a free opportunity for the public to engage with city officials and city departments. Learn what the city has accomplished in the past year and the city's plans for the upcoming year. There will be kids’ activities including bounce houses, face painting, games and more.
