Bronco Chronicles

Volume 16, Week 12/5 - 12/9/16

Principal's Message

Goooooood evening #BroncoStrong faulty and staff. The sixteenth week of school has been stupendous! We have had a busy week, and Friday we finished the seventh day of the Selfless Elf Project. In just seven days Matilda, our Selfless Elf, has given small blessings to at least 25 students. In addition, she has taken it upon herself to help with various jobs around campus. What a blessing it is to have her at Breckenridge Junior High!

We had extremely cold weather this past week. This coming week looks to be warmer, but please encourage the kiddos to wear their jackets because the mornings will still be very cold. If you notice a child who needs a jacket, please let Mrs. Jones know, as we will be washing the jackets from our lost and found and giving them to kids who need them. An announcement was made informing kids to go to the lost and found and claim any jacket they may have lost, but if they don't claim it by 12/14, we will start giving them to the kids who don't have jackets.

On Friday, 12/9, our students participated in the UIL Academic Meet in Tolar. We will receive the results in the upcoming week, but I want to congratulate our kids who participated. I and all the teachers are very proud of them for their dedication and efforts. Additionally, a big shout out to each and every teacher who dedicated themselves to the UIL practices and the actual meet.

Now let's have a blessed day and make the upcoming week count! Don't forget to stay #BroncoStrong!

BJH Semester Exams

We will keep a normal bell schedule. You Do NOT have to give a semester exam, but if you do, please make sure the exam can be completed in one class. I would suggest formatting it like a benchmark if you give a cumulative exam. As you know, this will help drive your future instruction. The following outlines the days semester exams should be give for specific classes:

December 19th - Math, Science, Band, Technology/Careers, Health

December 20th - ELA (Writing/Reading), Social studies, Art, Speech

December 21 - none given this day, as it is a early release schedule
