Message From the Principal

Did you know that attendance is part of our accountability system? Attendance counts for every student, every day. When your child is absent from school whether online or face to face, they are missing valuable instruction time and we miss out on valuable funding.

Our goal for attendance is 97%.

We also wanted to bring an awareness to the high number of tardies we are seeing this year. The tardy bell rings at 8:00 sharp. Our doors are open at 7:35 for those needing to eat breakfast and at 7:40 for all students.

We understand and appreciate that when your child is sick you keep them at home until they are well. We also understand that sometimes you need to pull your child for appointments throughout the day.

Please make sure that upon returning you send in a note within 5 school days, letting us know why your child was out so the absence is excused.

We appreciate your continued support in helping us meet our attendance goal of 97%!

Please know that my entire leadership team is here for you at any time. Please feel free to reach out to any of us.

With Bronco Pride,

Sandra Speer, Principal

Heather Johnson, Assistant Principal

Herman Lartigue, Assistant Principal

At Home Learning

Looking to extend your child’s learning at home? Go to the Klein ISD dashboard to find ST Math and Lexia Core 5. Both programs are aligned with state standards and are research-based programs with proven results to close academic gaps. 15 minutes a day in either of these programs will result in tremendous benefits for your child.

Library News

Library checkout is in full swing! Please remind your child of good, book care habits and reading for about 15-20 minutes each night.

Career Day

Greeting Parents, we would like to take the opportunity to invite you to be a speaker for Brill Elementary School’s Career Day 2021 on Friday, October 29th.

Career Day provides an opportunity for our school to host community members who would like to speak about their careers, including the skills they need, special tools they may use, and what they like most and least about their jobs. Career Day also inspires our students and helps them to set life goals for their future. Our guest speakers always represent an interesting and exciting variety of occupations!

If you can volunteer your time as a guest speaker from 8:15 to10:15 am, please let us know. *If you know someone who may not know about this opportunity but might like to be a speaker at Career Day, please send us their name, occupation, and phone number.

If you have any questions, please contact our counselor Mr. Tony Scherrman at 832-484-6128.

We thank you in advance for your consideration; we know how valuable your time is.
