Running of the Bells at BBIS: Parent Night

We invite you to join us on the grade level appropriate evening for our "Running of the Bells". This night is specifically designed for parents to get acquainted with their child's schedule and pick up any information the teachers are offering.

5th grade: September 26, 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.

6th grade: October 1, 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.

This is not a "come and go" event. It will be scheduled to resemble your child's day, so your promptness on the designated evening is essential for you to get the most from the evening.


BBIS PTO will be holding the first general meeting at 6:00 p.m. on each of the "Running of the Bells" nights. The same information will be provided on September 26 and October 1.

Visit the BBIS PTO webpage to learn more on how YOU can support BBIS and our PTO.

BBI Staff Spotlight

Mrs. Katie Tran

6th grade

Language Arts Teacher

How long have you been at BBI? This is my first year.

Where are you from and where did you grow up? I was born and raised in Katy, Texas.

What inspired you to work with children? I first started out wanting to teach because I wanted to coach high school softball. After visiting a variety of classrooms for observations, I realized that I just love the joy a child can bring to you each and every day. I saw how one teacher could make a student’s day, as well as how one student could make a teacher’s day.

What is your favorite book? Small Steps by Peg Kehret

What was your favorite subject in school? Math

If you could learn to one thing, what would it be? I would love to learn how to sing well.

If you could have any other career, what would it be? Ah that is a tough one because I don't see myself doing anything else besides teaching. If I had to choose another profession, I would either follow my dad and be an engineer, or I would open a crafting store like The Farmhouse Paint and Sip.

Who do you consider your hero? My sister is my HERO because she has gone through so many tough times, yet through all of the ups and downs she still manages to stay positive and never lets anyone know when she is struggling.

People would be surprised to know… that I played college softball in Nashville, TN, but threw out my shoulder and had to return home to Texas to graduate from SHSU.
