Know that every single test item, booklet, pencil, you name it, leaves the testing office with a few things unconditionally:
Every federal, state, district, campus guideline is followed
Abundant love, peace and confidence for whomever holds that document next. That may sound corny, but it's true. It's the belief that the child who uses that booklet/item will know that they are an absolute gift. The test is a day to share their brilliance. It's sent with confidence because they are ready. Their teachers, paras, admin & building support are all committed to facilitating a rich learning environment and preparing them for tomorrow.
It takes a community. One precious child, young adult, leader at a time. They were born for greatness! No test will ever deny that fact. It is determined by every step forward.
To all of our new Bears,
This is going to be a great year! You are a Bridgeland Bear. We can't wait to see you. If you haven't visited BHS yet, expect your first walk-through to be mixed with equal parts awe and wonder. Take everything you know about schools and zip it in a clear, pencil bag. A few nuances: walls are peppered with inspiration, color & height. Hallways can be straight and curved. Get used to looking up and not just in the tower. Hardwoods for ceilings, 'floating' lights & an LGI that peaks over the fourth floor. Grand Parkway looks beautiful from the library's two-story, glass wall. All of this is for you, because the brick and mortar houses the most wonderful staff and our most treasured gift. You. It's going to be an outstanding year.
