This week, BBJH was happy to recognize Joy Fayrweather and Ms.Ebbeler as the "Holla" Award Recipients!

Joy is an outstanding student that excels academically, always shows tremendous character, and was recently named to the All-District Band! Congrats Joy!

Ms. Ebbeler was also chosen for her willingness to help out the Bear Branch campus in so many different ways. Aside from her full teaching assignment, Ms. Ebbeler can routinely be seen at almost every BBJH event taking pictures for the yearbook! In addition, she has been instrumental in helping to prepare for the Veterans Day Program as well as other activities around campus. Thanks Ms. Ebbeler!

The Jolly Trolley made another appearance at Bear Branch Junior High on Friday to show some appreciation to our awesome teachers! It was a great way to end a great week!
