We Have Spirit, Yes We Do!
Next week we are celebrating the Spirit of New Tech.
Here are our days:
Monday- The Spirit of the Dragon— create a dragon to put up in the commons throughout the week (much like the create an ornament thing done around Christmas).
Tuesday- The Spirit of Others— If you are a student, dress as a teacher, and if you’re a teacher, dress as a student.
Wednesday- The Spirit of Waskow— Dress as a GI Joe.
Thursday- The Spirit of Rachael— Dress as a banana or in yellow.
Friday- The Spirit of Creativity— Talent Show Day- Dress to show your personal creativity.
Also for the whole week is the Kindness Challenge:
Say hello to someone new, ask for name
Ask someone alone to sit with you at lunch
Do one small good deed
Say hello and compliment someone you may not like
Tell your teachers thank you at the end of class
Send a kind hand-written note to a classmate or teacher
Hold the door open for someone behind you
Leave an encouragement note for someone you don’t know
Smile to others you pass by
Medals In Art
Saturday, February 25, 9 New Tech students brought 11 pieces of artwork to compete in the regional Visual Arts Scholastic Event at Harker Heights High School. Of the 11 pieces, 100% earned medals, and one artist, Bonnie Floyd, will take his piece on to the state competition in San Marcos the last weekend in April.
Super proud of each of these New Tech Students in our inaugural year of art! #BISD #RiseOfTheDragon
Mrs. Leija's AP Government and Political Science classes took a field trip to the state Capitol. They visited with Rep. Hugh Shine and Dr. Brad Buckley on issues like education and state finance.
Over 4 months and 100 hours, Alissa collected, organized and distributed 50 survival kits to the homeless. It was important to her that people not only had the kits but also knew how to use them. She took it upon herself to get first aid certified and wilderness first aid certified so that she could provide training to these individuals helping them avoid hyperthermia, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke. The MOWW Fort Hood chapter assisted her in reaching her goals.
Congratulations to Eagle Scout Alissa Stauffer!
Intro Law Students Leave For State!
Attention everyone! We are thrilled to announce that our Mock Trial and Moot Court teams headed to Austin today for the state competition! We couldn't be more proud of these incredibly talented and dedicated students who have worked tirelessly to prepare for this moment.
We want to wish them the best of luck as they represent our school and district in this prestigious competition. We know they will do great and make us all proud.
Let's show our support by sending them our positive thoughts and encouragement!

Creativity And Coffee
Creative Writing students spent time at a local coffee shop sharing their digital presentations that included original illustrations and a story themed "The Greatest Love Story."
BNT@W's location allows us to extend our learning beyond four walls. We love engaging with our local community and partnering with local businesses!
Little People, Big Art
150 Years In AP Human Geography
AP Human Geography students participated in the Industrial Revolution Urban planning game today! During this game, students grew in their understanding of the social, economic, and political factors that shaped the growth of urban areas in Great Britain during the Industrial Revolution.
Students collaborated, used critical thinking and problem-solving skills, creativity, and adaptability as they made decisions about urban planning and development. This was a challenging event as they progressed through 150 years of change (1700-1850).
B.E.E.F. Scholarships Open On Monday
The Belton Educational Enrichment Foundation scholarship applications open Monday, February 6th for all graduating Seniors in Belton ISD. To login, you'll need to use your BISD google email address. The application will close at midnight on Sunday, April 2nd, so play it safe, and submit your applications before April Fool's Day!
This year, the scholarship applications are being processed through Kaleidoscope. Kaleidoscope is an online awards management platform and marketplace. This changes the application process for all of you. It is worth taking a look at the Kaleidoscope Help Articles ahead of time.

In the past, there was a requirement to submit an essay of 250-350 words. Have an essay prepared to upload with your application (and named with your name in the title, not "untitled").
