Twitter

We are working hard to use various forms of social media to keep you all posted on the great things going on at BIS. If you are out and about at activities and are taking pictures, feel free to tag them #brockintermediate. Also, many of our teachers have signed up for Twitter accounts and are actively posting pictures/videos of things happening in class. They have various handle names for their classes, so please look for that information and follow them. Feel free to follow me on twitter @ingiasaxton as I will be posting things as well.

Traffic Flow

PM:

  • We will start releasing as soon as the bells ring for parent pick-up, however, once the buses arrive on campus, we will stop traffic to allow the buses to pull through to pick up kiddos and then exit. After that time, we will resume the parent pick up line.
  • Be sure and review the attached map (or see above) so you know which line to be in so as to exit onto 1189 with the flow of traffic.
  • Attached are written instructions regarding parent pick-up if you are wanting to read through those. Please be sure and have your nametag hanging and visible on your rearview mirror.
AM:
  • We will encourage students to be dropped off in the car line or walked only to the front entrance. In an effort to ensure student safety and campus security, we ask that you say your "goodbyes" at the front door so they can enter independently and get ready for the day. If you have a parent conference, we will ask that you sign in to the front office before proceeding to the teacher's room - doors open to the building at 7:15a.m.
  • Everyone that is dropping students in the a.m. will enter the line off of Grindstone on the East side of the Junior High. This line will go around the pond and to the front of BIS.

New Phone Systems

We have a new phone system on campus that is high tech for some of us! This system allows for you to leave a voice message as well as get transferred throughout the district. Please bear with us as we learn to look for voicemail button to be lit up. :-) Those of us that have been in Brock for a while are definitely not used to having this type of system but we will get ourselves acquainted with it and be diligent in getting back to you. if you haven't heard back from us, it never hurts to send us an email as we do not want to overlook anything.

6th Grade PE

6th-grade students will dress out every other day for PE since this class is a full hour. Coach Shoush met with boys on Thursday and girls on Friday. This upcoming week, the boys will be Monday/Wednesday/Friday and the girls Tuesday/Thursday. It will then rotate from there on. 6th Grade also has recess in their schedule for each day to ensure physical activity opportunities. If you need to get in contact with Coach Shoush, please email him at kshoush@brockisd.net.

Eagle Eyes

Eagle Eyes are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer throughout the school year at Brock Elementary.

The “Eagle Eyes” will work right along-side the staff as they read and work with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with all students.


If you are interested in being an Eagle Eye, please here for more information as well as forms to fill out and turn in.

We have not yet received the paper copy of the parent STAAR reports from TEA. If you would like to view your child's most recent STAAR scores, as well as any previous scores, you can always access them by following the steps in the attached document. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
