Bear Branch Junior High

Principal’s Announcements

Good Morning Bear Branch Junior High!  Today is Wednesday, May 26, 2017.


Today’s Fun Fact:

At this time, please stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and remain standing for the Texas pledge and minute of silence.  “I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”  

And now the Texas pledge.  “Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible.”  

And, now for our minute of silence.

And now for a few announcements…

Students, DRESS CODE will be enforced throughout the year. Please be sure you follow the dress code at school and at all school sponsored events.

Cell phones, iPods, headphones, and other electronics are not allowed to interfere with instruction during the school day and are not allowed to be visible in the hallways.  Teachers and administrators will collect these devices if they interfere with instruction.  Students, make sure you understand each of your teachers' expectations regarding electronic devices. All collected electronics will only be returned to a parent or guardian at the end of the school day. Up to a $15 fine will be charged for any cell phones picked up by a staff member. Electronic devices can be used before school and during lunch.

Make sure you are getting to class on time. Please use the 5 minutes during class change wisely. There is nothing wrong with being early to class. Students - Please remember to get to class on time.  There will be candy grams and a gift card drawing for those of you with no tardies at the end of the first 9 weeks!
