Bear Branch Junior High Week 8

The Principal's Message

Bear Branch Junior High Parents,

It's hard to believe we are almost done with the 1st 9 Weeks of school! It's been great getting to know your kids and seeing so many awesome things happening in our classrooms, on the court, and on the field. Bear Branch Junior High is extremely fortunate to have such a great staff that builds relationships with students and provides engaging, rigorous learning opportunities every day.

As we continue into the 2nd 9 Weeks and the remainder of the school year, we are going to have a more intentional, detailed focus on providing rigorous work for our students that will stretch their thinking and prepare them for academic life beyond BBJH. I am excited about the remainder of the year!

If you read the newsletter on a regular basis, you've probably noticed this week's newsletter looks a little bit different. It's been redesigned to include more information that I hope will be helpful and beneficial.

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