Bray's Bulletin

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

Greetings Ram Family!


Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I hope this newsletter finds you safe, healthy, and well. We are very excited to welcome your child back to school in the virtual learning environment. The start of school will look different than in previous years, but our mission and vision remain the same:


Mission: We will intentionally create a safe, risk taking environment for students that models and fosters effective communication, collaboration and critical thinking.


Vision: Explore your passion commit to your future.


Schoology is the Learning Management System adopted by Northside ISD, and it will take the place of Google Classroom. Schoology will allow for both synchronous (real time) and asynchronous (independent) learning opportunities and will also help to facilitate improved teacher and parent communication. As we make the transition to the Schoology Learning Management System parents will be provided with the necessary resources to support their child in both virtual and in person instruction. The Parent Support Site is currently in development and will go live on August 10th. It will contain information regarding Schoology parent accounts, contact information for technical assistance, and instructional and parent support. Students will have access to both live time teaching and independent learning when school starts on August 24th. It is very important to note that as students return to the learning environment attendance will not be waived, and we will return to our normal grading policy.


Please save the dates of August 19th and 20th from 5:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. The Marshall Community will be hosting "Drive through and get ready for school." This event will replace our regularly scheduled prep days. This will be an opportunity for students to get ready for virtual learning. Students will be provided with a virtual toolkit to start the year, and pick up necessary supplies to support virtual learning. Be on the lookout on social media and the school website for more information.


Ram Rally will be held on Friday, August 21st from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. at the Northside Sports Gym. This will be a drive through celebration of the school year.


Check out our website at https://www.nisd.net/mlms for information regarding the Freshman Kick Off on August 13th and August 14th. Students will need access to a device and the Zoom App (which is free) to access the event. Freshman Kick Off is a great opportunity for students to start high school off on the right foot. Incoming freshmen will participate in activities and discussions that revolve around high school success and personal growth. This event is open to all incoming Freshman.


I am happy to report that we have hired a Professional School Counselor for Marshall LMS. Ms. Anissa Pennick joins us from NSITE High School, and she brings a wealth of counseling and magnet school experience to Marshall LMS. We are so excited to have her join the Marshall/LMS family. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's schedule please reach out to her at anissa.pennick@nisd.net.


Finally, we hosted our Second Annual Summer Symposium on Saturday, August 1st. It was a fun engaging event. I would like to extend a special thank you to all of our guest speakers and our keynote speaker Congressman Will Hurd.
