Bear Branch Junior High Week 15

The Principal's Message

Bear Branch Junior High Parents,

What a quick 1st semester this has been! It's hard to believe the semester is over in just two weeks. While the 1st semester has been good, I'm extremely excited about the second half of the year. BBJH will be focusing on Rigor, Relevance, and Innovation in our classroom instruction throughout the remainder of the year. In addition, we will have a very intentional focus on engaging every student...every day. It's going to be an awesome semester!

As always, if I can ever be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at 281-356-6088 or by email at

Morning Drop Off

As you're aware, Morning Drop Off can be very busy and somewhat hectic at times. With this in mind, please encourage your students to walk all the way to the crosswalk if you are dropping them off in the outside lane. We've had an increasing number of students walking in between cars which is a cause for concern, as we want to keep everyone safe. Office Justice will be at Morning Drop Off directing students that direction. Thanks for your help!


Each week we recognize one staff member and one student for being awesome! This week, we have two teacher and two students to highlight!

Ms. Collins is a huge help to the BBJH campus in many ways. She is a great leader of her department, the cheer team, and does some amazing things in her classroom. Excited to recognize her!

Also, we are excited to recognize Mr. Gustin. He is one of the most positive people I've ever met and goes above and beyond in his classroom each day. Way to go Mr. Gustin!

Super excited to recognize Emma Bullock as one of our student Holla recipients! She is a very sweet and positive student that demonstrates leadership in the classroom and on the court. Congrats Emma!

Also very excited to recognize Bryce Livermore. His teachers said of him that he is very polite, kind, responsible, and always willing to help out. Good job Bryce!
