HEBISD PARENT AND COMMUNITY SURVEY CLOSES TONIGHT! PLEASE HELP US TO IMPROVE BY COMPLETING THE SURVEY.
Dear Parents and Community Members,
We invite you to participate in our annual survey on the Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District! Your responses help us make decisions which improve the education of all our students.
Please know that your response is strictly confidential. Data will be viewed on a collective level only, so reports will not identify individuals. No one in the district will know if you participated unless you identify yourself in the open-ended comments.
After the survey closes, we will share the findings publicly, including what we learn and specific changes you may anticipate as a result of your feedback.
Engaging in an ongoing dialogue is critical as we work together to provide our students with the best possible education.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.
Dr. Joe Harrington Ed.D.

FRESHMAN GIRLS BASKETBALL
8TH GRADE GIRLS BASKETBALL
Team 1 finished the regular season beating Richland 55-21. Defense started off strong. Jazz Williams, MuRae Horn, Mia Easter-Clark, Reagan Ingram and Kenslee Turner were all over the court making it difficult for Richland to get something going. The defense intensity created scoring opportunities for everyone. Everyone contributed on the offensive side, either by scoring or assisting. Great job ladies. Let's bring home the championship!
7TH GRADE GIRLS BASKETBALL
Team 1 will continue their run to a sweet 16 championship next weekend. Good Luck ladies and let's bring it home!!
Monday night the 7th Grade Lady Broncos Team 2 defeated Richland 46-8 to finish the season with a record of 7-1. Scorers were Tina Betancourt with 12 points, Aliya Johnson with 10 pts, Layla Moore with 8 pts. and Eliot Bragg with 6 points. Arabela Jacobs and Ayanna Weang both had 4 pts and Maddy Martinak had 2 pts. Coach Shack would like to thank the team for their hard work throughout the season.
FRESHMAN BOYS BASKETBALL
The Broncos fought hard to a 10 point lead in the 3rd quarter but some lapses on defense led to our opponent pulling ahead by 3 in the last minute. But the guys never stopped playing and some last second steals gave Tre Sargent the opportunity to win the game for the Broncos at the very end.
The scoring leaders were Tre Sargent with 12 points, Coltyn Case with 9, and Grant Walker and Landon Wesley had 7 each. The defensive effort was spearheaded by Caleb Walton. And D'mari Mosely grabbed plenty of rebounds.
8TH GRADE BOYS BASKETBALL
B team started the game slow being down 15 to 10 after the 1st quarter. By halftime your Broncos took a commanding lead of 31 to 22 going on a 19 point run led by Dom Williams, Jake McCallister, Andre Aguilar, and Diego Guzman. After the half Richland scratched and clawed their way into the game, but your Broncos held on to win with a 45 to 37 final score. Big shoutout to Derek Matthews, having the best defense of the season, also Aidan Adams, Ethan Henson, and Luke Pryor all with 2 points. Can't forget about the big fellas down low like Channing Humphreys, Asa Young, and Kody Scott. Great job in your last game as a Bronco and Coach Brousseau and Coach "Gilly" Gilchrist are very proud of you guys.
The A team played next, which some would call their best game so far. The Broncos started on a 1st half run taking a commanding 27 to 17 score, led by Braylon Harris with 12 points and Gavin Roberson with 8 points all in the first half. The start of the 3rd Quarter, Richland started a strong run but the Broncos demonstrated great defense to keep the lead and the victory. Defensive standouts were Doug Landfair, PJ Bryant, and Tyler Cramer.
Next week the Broncos will be competing in the end-of-the-year district tournament. Come out and support!
7TH GRADE BOYS BASKETBALL
In the second game of the night, your BJH boys’ A team lost a nail biter of a game. Coming down to the last seconds of the game your BJH boys fell just short of their goal losing 48-46.
