Congratulations to 3rd grader Gabriel Rubio, Character Without Question recipient from Spring Branch 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.

Gabriel’s counselor, Patricia Romano, wrote, “Gabriel Rubio is a student with high self-esteem. Gabriel is one of our 3rd grade students and has demonstrated how to be a leader and role model to all of our SBE Bears. Gabriel is respectful with his peers and staff, as well as respectful in his community. Gabriel is an honest student, as he says "I heard lying is bad and doesn't solve anything". Gabriel wants to ensure that he is honest with those he interacts with. 

While in Second Grade, Gabriel was a key speaker at the SBISD State of the Schools event. At the event, Gabriel spoke about the benefits of the Reading Buddy Program and informed those in attendance of how the program has helped him grow as a reader. Gabriel continues to be a role model for our SBE Bears by demonstrating that with perseverance, respect, honesty, empathy and compassion, goals that seem impossible to reach, are reachable by working hard and persevering.” Gabriel was selected for his commitment to honesty and integrity, perseverance, and respect.

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

Reverse Job Shadow at Spring Branch Elementary from SBISD on Vimeo.

Spring Branch Elementary students in grades 3 – 5 recently experienced a Reverse Job Shadowing Day hosted by district partners Junior Achievement and Dow Chemical Dupont.

Reverse job shadowing provides students with examples of future careers and information on how they can plan for and achieve college and career goals. Volunteer presenters shared details on the pathways needed for specific occupations and their educational journeys. A total of 14 classes participated in the day's activity. The partners will return in the spring semester to work with students at the campus in grades K – 2.

Junior Achievement and Dow Chemical Dupont support a range of programming in SBISD including The TAME STEM Trailer, Spring Branch Middle School's 8th Grade Career Day, field trips for Spring Woods High School science students, and several FIRST Lego Robotics clubs around the school district.
