Our students and staff make us #CubProud!

We have important updates to share, so please scroll down.

As always, thank you for staying engaged!

Brenham ISD Launches Safety Reporting Tool for Students

In Brenham ISD, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority and we are constantly exploring ways to offer the safest educational environment; therefore, BISD is excited to announce that we are launching a new safety reporting tool. Safe2SpeakUp is CrisisGo’s student companion app that gives our students access to safety communication and information. Students can submit tips or report incidents at school to their school’s safety team by downloading the Safe2SpeakUp app or by logging on to the website.

Students interested in Safe2SpeakUP can simply download the app from Google Play, Apple’s App Store, or Chrome Web Store.

Allowing students to have access to Safe2SpeakUP means that they are able to play an active role in their personal safety and the safety of their classmates. Safe2SpeakUP is COPPA compliant, and it will allow students to improve school safety by:

• Anonymously reporting bullying and bully-related activity.

• Reporting safety issues with multi-media reporting options.

• Communicating with the school safety team during an incident.

• Learning about safety risks and solutions.

• Activating a digital panic button and dropping a GPS pin of their location during emergencies.

In addition to the Safe2SpeakUp app, students and parents can also log on to to “Report a Safety Concern” on their campus.

We are excited to empower our students with the technology that can make them safer and provide the safest learning environment possible.

Brenham ISD students continue to take educational trips during a pandemic school year. Students often look forward to field trips, but doing so on the backdrop of a pandemic can be challenging. Krause Elementary partnered with Education in Action to continue to offer a fun and exciting alternative for students. The 4th grade students at Krause were seen attentive and excited for their virtual field trip. Students had the opportunity to tour the Texas State Capitol in Austin and the Alamo in San Antonio. Through the journey, they also learned about people, places, and events that played important roles in our state's history. Each student received a field trip t-shirt, Arlie the Armadillo, and other goodies. To end the day with a bang, and in Lone Star State style, a Texas theme lunch was served that consisted of Frito pie, Dr. Pepper, and Blue Bell Ice Cream. This is just one example of creative ways Brenham ISD educators have gone above and beyond to make sure Brenham ISD students get the full learning experience.

Los estudiantes a menudo esperan con ansias las excursiones, pero hacerlo en el contexto de una pandemia puede ser un desafío. Krause Elementary se asoció con Education in Action para continuar ofreciendo una alternativa divertida y emocionante para los estudiantes. Los estudiantes de cuarto grado en Krause fueron vistos atentos y emocionados por su viaje de campo virtual. Los estudiantes tuvieron la oportunidad de recorrer el Capitolio del Estado de Texas en Austin y el Alamo en San Antonio. A lo largo del viaje, también aprendieron sobre personas, lugares y eventos que jugaron un papel importante en la historia de nuestro estado. Cada estudiante recibió una camiseta de la excursión, Arlie the Armadillo y otros obsequios. Para terminar el día con una explosión, y al estilo de Lone Star State, se sirvió un almuerzo temático de Texas que consistió en pastel Frito, Dr. Pepper y Blue Bell Ice Cream. Este es solo un ejemplo de las formas creativas en que los educadores de Brenham ISD han ido más allá para asegurarse de que los estudiantes de Brenham ISD obtengan la experiencia de aprendizaje completa.

Positive News Alert: 15 National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) members got up early to chalk the sidewalk outside of Brenham Junior High to share positive, uplifting messages to encourage their peers to have a mind frame of success this entire week. With STAAR tests coming up, our NJHS members felt they could relieve some of the anxiety and pressure students feel on big test days with bright colors and positive and powerful messages! Students walked by this morning while NJHS members were hard at work, and one stopped to thank the chalking crew for starting his day off right. Whether they reach 1 or 100 people, the Brenham Junior High NJHS students are always willing to bring some happiness to the campus! #CubProud
