The Principal's Message

Bear Branch Junior High Parents,


Welcome back! I hope everyone had an awesome break and that you were able to enjoy the time off with family and friends! 2nd semester is off and running and I'm excited about the things ahead.


This semester, BBJH is going to have an intense focus on rigor, relevance, relationships, and innovation in the classroom. As a campus, we attended an awesome training on January 7th where we learned a lot of great information about rigor in the classroom. In addition, we are going to be attending a training on the 16th about building relationships and creating the positive school culture we know is vital to student performance. A lot of exciting stuff is planned for this semester and I can't wait to get started.


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


Thanks!


Ben Petty

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 14-19 and January 21-26. Click here to view the schedule.

College Shirt Day

This Wednesday is College Shirt Day! Wear your favorite College Shirt and support your favorite school!

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!

Holla!

Congrats to Mrs. Beuershausen for being selected as the BBJH "Holla" recipient this week! Mrs. Beuershausen does an awesome job as the Science Department Chair and has been doing some great stuff in her classroom! Way to go Mrs. Beuershausen!
