Congratulations to 8th grader Lizzie Picott, Character Without Question recipient from Spring Forest! 

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.

Lizzie’s counselor, Leah Whitten, wrote, “Lizzie is an exceptional student that exhibits a strong academic work ethic. She is notably kind - treating others with respect and speaking to others the way that she would want to be spoken to and thinking of others the way that she would want to be thought of. She is not afraid to try new things and advocates for herself. We are very proud to have Lizzie Picott represent Spring Forest Middle School as our Character Without Question Award recipient.” Lizzie was selected for her commitment to being responsible, kind, and showing effort.

For more information on the Character Without Question program, please contact katie.redd@springbranchisd.com.

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.

 

The 2020-21 school year will present new challenges and new opportunities for Spring Branch ISD and our community. No matter what challenges we face, our responsibility is to ensure students in SBISD continue learning safely and effectively. Our commitment to inspire minds and shape lives while maintain-ing student learning and academic performance is non-negotiable.
 
The District is equally resolved in its commitment to go beyond to  prioritize health and safety for students, employees and the entire SBISD Family.  These two overriding priorities have informed and shaped  
our 2020-21 back-to-school plan, LearnSBISD.
 
LearnSBISD affirms how - together - we’ll support these priorities, and your role as our vital partners. LearnSBISD provides information families need to make the best decisions for their child’s education. 
 
The plan was informed by countless hours of research and planning by district and campus leaders, employee and family surveys, medical professionals, lessons learned from Spring 2020, summer pilot programs, and local, state and national health and government agency guidance. LearnSBISD addresses four critical areas of focus.
 
OUR PLAN FOCUSES ON: 
 
Health and Safety 
Teaching and Learning 
Family Supports
Staying Connected

Rawan Al Saleh was honored during the 17th annual Character Without Question awards ceremony at the Feb. 24, 2020 Spring Branch ISD board meeting. She was nominated and selected for the award from the Academy of Choice student body for embodying strong character traits such as honesty, kindness, integrity, perseverance, courage, caring, and more.

Each school’s honoree received a framed award, the book “Oh the Places You Will Go,” and congratulations from all SBISD Trustees, to the cheers of family, friends and school leaders gathered in the Northbrook High auditorium.

At the pre-event reception, supported by Wells Fargo and the Spring Branch Education Foundation, the Character Without Question honorees enjoyed refreshments and had photos taken with their families.

Congratulations Rawan!
