Week of November 8, 2021

Veterans Day

We hope you can join us on Thursday, November 11th, to Honor Our Veterans. We will have two assemblies to allow for less crowding in our gymnasium.

Thursday, November 11th

9:00 am Pre K, K, 2nd, and 4th students and families

10:30 am 1st, 3rd, and 5th students and families.

Please be seated in the gym 15 minutes prior to start time.

If you have students in both time slots, please feel free to attend one or the other.

"Clifford the BIG RED DOG" movie

Let's do a Brock Family Movie Day!! "Clifford, the Big Red Dog" is coming to theaters in November. This is a great opportunity to meet other Brock families. We could meet at the AMC Burleson 14, visit and watch the movie together. Students must be accompanied by a guardian and tickets can be purchased online. Please complete the Google form so I can gauge interest. There are no movie times set as of this "Tiger Talk."


Mrs. K's Counseling Corner

  • Our "Essential 36" manner of the week: "Always be prepared."

  • Mrs. Gann's 3rd grade class will be assisting with our morning announcements. This is a great way for our students to practice leadership skills and become confident communicators!

  • The BISD counselors have adopted the "7 Mindsets" curriculum. The lessons are broken down into grade levels, so the curriculum is age-appropriate. This year, we will focus on Mindset #5, "Attitude of Gratitude" and Mindset #4, "100% Accountable." For more information, please click on "7 Mindsets" . There are amazing resources for families and teachers and the district counselors are excited about all that the curriculum offers.

  • For some fun family activities around the area, click on November's "Kids Out and About" newsletter. .

  • November 13 is "World Kindness Day." This is a day that promotes the importance of being kind to each other, to yourself, and to the world. Mrs. K. will provide students with a kindness calendar so they can write how they have shown kindness. Of course, EVERYDAY should be "World Kindness Day" but we will have some extra activities on this day.

  • Saturday, December 4: Christmas Parade, Tree Lighting & Fireworks: The Burleson Rotary Club hosts the annual lighted Christmas parade followed by the City's tree lighting and fireworks show. The parade begins at 6 p.m., followed by the Tree Lighting at 8 p.m., and the big fireworks display will close out the evening’s festivities. For more info, click Burleson Rotary Christmas Parade

As always, Mrs. Kirkpatrick is here to serve you and your children, so please call or email her at any time for support.
