Teacher Appreciation Week

Dear BJH Parents and Students,

We would like to invite all students to participate in Gift Card Lottery in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week. Any BJH student can bring a $5 gift card from a local establishment like Target, Chicken Express, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, McDonald’s, etc…

On Friday, May 11th we will play Gift Card Lottery throughout the day. Your child will get to draw and announce the winner of their gift card.

It is a fun and unique way to show our appreciation for Brock Junior High Staff during National Teacher Appreciation Week. If you have any questions or comments, you can contact Stephanie Harris at Brock Junior High.

Please have your child bring their gift cards by Wednesday, May 9th to Ms. Harris.

Thank You!

BJH Student Council

Outdoor Learning Center

Our primary goal of the Eagle Outdoor Learning Center is to enrich the curriculum and support project-based and experiential learning. We are currently in the planning phase of the Eagle Outdoor Learning Center but would welcome any community support to help get this off the ground and to fruition by the start of next school year. Click here for more information or feel free to direct questions/ideas/support to Nancy Beaty @ nbeaty@brockisd.net

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.

Attendance

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.

BJH Grading Policy

BJH teachers have developed the following grading policy for the 2017-2018 School Year:


  • Daily grades = 50%; tests/projects/major grades = 50%
  • There will be a minimum of 8-10 daily grades each six weeks.
  • There will be a minimum of 2-4 test/project/major grades each six weeks.
  • Grades will be posted to parent portal no later than 1 week from the due date of the assignment
  • Work missed as a result of an unexcused absence will receive a grade no higher than a 70.

*Individual teacher discretion regarding his/her late work policy.
