Operation Beautiful - April 18th

Operation beautiful is a service project to build, encourage, and support both

young and mature women to have a positive self - image – to see beauty from the

inside out! The BJH Student Council would like to invite all the girls, ladies,

and women to participate in “Operation Beautiful.”

On Wednesday, April 18th, 2018, by wearing an “Operation Beautiful” t-shirt with

jeans and a “natural” look (no-fuss hair and make-up free!) you would be

“redefining beautiful one girl at a time!”

In addition, we will be spreading positive messages through post-it notes. These

notes are written to provide positive, inspirational, and encouraging

messages to young girls and women all around our community. The post-it notes

can be left in restrooms on mirrors, dedicated message boards, student’s desks,

daughter’s rooms, mother’s rooms, girl’s lockers, lunch boxes, etc. For more information, contact Stephanie Harris -

Gifted & Talented Nominations

Brock ISD offers a Gifted and Talented program that is designed to meet the needs of those students who demonstrate a need for differentiated curriculum.

According to Texas Education Code, the definition of a gifted student is as follows:

In this subchapter, “gifted and talented students” means a child or youth who performs at or shows the potential for performing at a remarkably high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment and who:

(1) exhibits high-performance capability in an intellectual, creative, or artistic area;

(2) possesses an unusual capacity for leadership; or

(3) excels in a specific academic field.

Any person can nominate a student. Nominations will be accepted through April 13, 2018. Participating in the screening process does not mean that your child will be assigned to the Gifted and Talented program, but it does mean that you feel your child has shown the exceptional qualities described above.

If you are interested in having your child nominated for the screening and identification process for the Gifted and Talented program, please fill out the attached forms or stop by the school to pick up the forms required.

Nomination forms or questions may be addressed to Stacy Jerrett.: or call 817-594-8017.

Student Check-out

If you are planning to pick up your child for early release, please be sure you are in the office by 3:15 p.m. After that time, please plan on going through the parent pickup line. Since the buses arrive on campus around 3:20 each day, the ability for you to park and get out before they arrive is slim. Once the buses arrive and park out front, it is against the law to pull out and around the buses since their stop signs are out and lights are flashing.

Dress Code Concerns

There are a few things that need to be specifically addressed that seem to be consistent:

  • Boys: The biggest concern we see is boys that have long hair that extends below the eyebrow but they push it to the side so that it is not in front of their eyes. This is not in compliance with the policy. If the hair extends below the eyebrows then it is too long.
  • Girls: There are lots of cute tops that are being worn that have large v-neck cuts that are showing the girls undergarments underneath. There should be no undergarment item showing on the young ladies.

The Dress Code Policy has not changed since last year, but if you need to reference it, click here and then scroll to page 37. If you have questions, please let us know.

Armed Forces Display

If you have a loved one that is currently serving or has served in the armed forces, please send a picture to us with the following information: branch served; time served; relation to the student on campus.


Students are required to be in attendance 90% of the academic year, this breaks down to mean no more than 18 excused or unexcused absences. Every class period at the junior high level counts toward compulsory attendance. This includes the Eagle period at the end of the day.

Brock Sports

You can now follow in-game scores and final scores for Brock athletic teams on the app “Score Stream”. Scores can be updated by users throughout the game. You will need to download the Score Stream app to your smartphone or go to then sign up to see Brock Eagles scores. You can also view scores on the Brock Athletic website at
