Stephenson's knowledge and experience will bring him to Burnet to replace former head Band Director Jason Jones, who accepted a position at San Angelo ISD as the Band Director for the 6A Central High School.

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.

'Say Something' at Burnet Middle School

Dear Editor,

Last week at Burnet Middle School, we trained our student body to “Say Something” if they suspect that a classmate is going to harm themselves or others. We wanted to share this training because we wouldn’t be able to live with ourselves if something happened to a classmate and we could have prevented it.

Part of our training is to teach our fellow students how to be “upstanders.” An upstander is someone who stands up, not stands by. They speak up for what’s right and are the kind of people who will “Say Something.”

No school is immune to violence and suicides. Everyone thinks “it won’t happen to here,” “it won’t happen to me.” But, anyone can be going through something that might make them consider violence. Anyone.

Working on the belief every act of violence is preventable, Burnet Middle School Interact students taught their peers to “Say Something” Monday morning during assemblies at the school auditorium.

All week long, during homeroom, BMS students will learn strategies for speaking up if they see warning signs of impending violence or if they feel a student may harm himself or herself or others as part of “Say Something,” a program sponsored by the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation.

Under the tutelage of their sponsor, Sara Te, Interact students Katie Bird, Madi Stires, Mady Jones, Kylie Butcher and Zoe Nicholl showed videos to seventh graders Monday morning and led discussions about when it is appropriate to “Say Something.”

The seventh-grade White team lost a close match falling just short, 14-8. The seventh-grade Green team improved their district record to 2-0 with a 28-0 win over Gatesville. The eighth-grade White team played well on both sides of the ball and settled for a 14-all tie. The eighth-grade Green team came away with a nice 36-6 victory. All teams will have a bye this week.

 

Seventh-grade White

The seventh-grade White team went to battle with a good Gatesville team last Thursday night and unfortunately suffered a tough loss, 14-8. Offensive standouts included Dakota Hopkins who had a 51-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

TEA announces accountability ratings for BCISD for 2016

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) released 2016 campus and district ratings as part of the state accountability system, including those for the Burnet Consolidated Independent School District (BCISD).

Campuses and districts can be rated as Met Standard or Improvement Required and the district as a whole rated as Met Standard, as well as Shady Grove and RJ Richey Elementary Schools, Burnet Middle School and Burnet High School, where a special exception was noted.

The only local campus receiving that lesser rating was Quest Alternative High School, which needs to meet two more of the four index targets—student achievement and closing performance gaps.

Burnet High School received the rating of Met Standard with a TEA caveat, as “the result of special processing of results affected by online testing issues that occurred in spring 2016.”
