ICE funds are still available

If you haven't spent your $50 Instructional Classroom Enhancement (ICE) funds, they are still available to you. Your campus secretary can assist you with questions.

So Thankful!

As we close out the last November school day, I want you to know how honored I am to be your teammate, and how grateful and thankful I am for the BCISD family. In my six months here so far, I find that I am only just beginning to understand what a special school community we have. I pray that you have restful sleep next week, happy connections with your loved ones, and renewed passion for your work with students. Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for YOU!
