It's hard not to feel the positivity surrounding Bryan ISD. I felt the enthusiasm from our staff at Convocation, I feel the excitement from students when I visit our schools, and I feel the support everywhere I go around our community. From student achievement to academic achievement and rising distinctions to outstanding community support, our school district is moving in an exciting direction.
We're also beginning the second year of the Essential 8.
We will again learn about and model the same eight character traits through this homegrown initiative developed by Bryan ISD teachers, staff and administrators. This ties into our theme this year. Be Essential. Everyone in Bryan ISD, students, and staff, need to strive to be essential. When you come into our campuses and facilities, you will see a picture outside of everyone's door with a statement on how they will be essential.
I asked students to join me on stage at Convocation this year and talk about who in Bryan ISD is essential to them, and what Essential 8 trait is the most important.
So remember, no matter what you do in your daily life, in Bryan ISD or in our community, be essential in 2019-2020.
