Families and mentors are a critical part of helping students make connections between what is learned at school and what they experience outside campus walls. We welcome and encourage parents, families, and mentors to partner with us!

The new Empowered & Equipped! site features resources to support conversations and activities at home, and in the community, with monthly lessons aligned to SBISD instruction. These lessons focus on the critical areas of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)and building awareness of various career pathways as part of the Spring Branch T-2-4 Goal.

Safety Patrols receive special surprise

Our 5th grade Safety Patrols received quite the surprise this morning! Ms. Jessica secured sponsors to provide a book and/or journal for all 23 of her patrols. This little token not only started their day in a bright way, but provided a little boost of confidence for their 5th grade year as many of the girls received empowering books about strong, influential women. Many thanks to Ms. Jessica's family, friends, and former students (a few former patrols) for providing these books to our students

Happy First Day of School

Happy 1st Day of School! The first day of school is full of many unknowns. We were all a little nervous this morning, but we were also excited to begin a new year! There may be glitches we have to fix, but our days will soon run smoothly. Our students inspire us to provide them the best educational experience while they are with us. We encourage you to join us as we go on this journey. We are BISON STRONG!
