Congratulations to 5th grader Victor Galindo, Character Without Question recipient from Buffalo Creek Elementary!

Every year, SBISD honors students district-wide who reflect a depth of character and a caring for human beings. Students are selected for demonstrating an enduring commitment to any or all of the following character traits: honesty/integrity, responsibility/dependability, respect, perseverance/effort, courage, caring/kindness, and citizenship/civic virtue.

Victor’s counselor, Becky Zech-Stephenson, wrote, “Victor has been at BCE since Kinder. He has shown all of the above characteristics at every stage of his maturity and growing up as a student at our school. He is a well-rounded student who is liked by his peers. He uses his leadership, humor, and courage to show the other students how to live out our school's motto of the 3 Be's every day. He is a role model for his classmates and the entire student body.

As a safety Patrol, he consistently stands at his assigned post and watches over the younger students as they get breakfast and travel down the hall; offering a helping hand as needed. In his health fitness class, his awesome attitude of working hard, playing safe, showing respect and sportsmanship is genuine and a true testament that Victor deserves the Character Without Question Award.” Victor was selected for his commitment to civic virtue, respect, and responsibility.

All BCE students have a virtual learning day on Tuesday, November 3rd.

Todos los estudiantes de BCE tienen día de aprendizaje virtual el martes, 3 de noviembre.

Attention Parents:

It is important for all BCE Parents to complete the Income Survey on Skyward. These forms play an important role in campus accountability and funding, as well as free/reduced lunch for our students. Here are the directions to guide you. Please complete before October 5th.

Atención padres:

Es importante que todos los padres de BCE completen la Encuesta de ingresos en Skyward. Estos formularios son importante en la rendición de cuentas y la financiación del campus, así como en el almuerzo gratis / reducido para nuestros estudiantes. Aquí están las instrucciones para guiarlo. Por favor de completar antes del 5 de octubre.

We are excited to announce new SBISD grade level guides (PK-12) that have been developed by our Academics team to provide an overview of what your child will learn in school every nine weeks and resources to support their learning at home.

You will find strategies based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and SBISD priority standards to help you help your child meet his or her learning goals. Teams of SBISD teachers studied the TEKS and further identified the essential, or priority, standards necessary to master at each grade level.
These guides provide clear, consistent expectations for what SBISD students should be learning as we strive to prepare Every Child for his/her T-2-4 goals.

Access the grade level guides here.
