Shattered Dreams

Nathan Hendrix/Burnet Bulletin

 

At the left, Burnet High School junior Tatum Davis delivers an Oscar-worthy performance in this year's Shattered Dreams presentation at the high school. Davis is acting like she's being consoled by a classmate after witnessing two other students lose their lives in a car collision simulation. Meanwhile, at the right, senior Sheaffer Teague is put in handcuffs and escorted to the back of a squad car after the simulated deaths of two of his classmates due to his impaired driving. Teague was booked on two counts of simulated vehicular manslaughter during the presentation, which aims to warn students about the dangers of drinking and driving.

BCISD campuses to close Friday, Mar. 1

A message from BCISD Superintendent Keith McBurnett:

Dear Parents,

As you have probably heard, the Lady Dawgs have qualified as one of the final four teams to make it to the UIL State Basketball Tournament in San Antonio. This is the first time in the District’s history to have any basketball team make it to the State Tournament. The Lady Dawgs will take on Hardin-Jefferson on Friday, March 1 at 1:30 p.m. at the Alamodome.

Ever since the win over Liberty Hill this past Saturday, the District has received a large number of inquiries from staff and parents asking about the District’s plan to accommodate the State Semi-Final game on Friday.

Burnet Bulletin

The Burnet CISD Board of Trustees recently nominated Burnet Middle School English teacher and Interact sponsor Sara Te to the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Media Honor Roll for the part she has played in providing news about public schools in a fair and accurate manner.

Tea has made an impact on students across the district as well as the nation with her participation in the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation and introducing BCISD to the “Start With Hello” program and “Say Something Week,” programs dedicated to including students of all walks of life and helping them feel welcome and safe in what can be an overwhelming environment for many.

In June 2017, Te and a few of her BMS Interact students were honored at the Sandy Hook Promise Gala in Washington, D.C., for introducing their school to the “Start With Hello” program.
