Congratulations to our first Exemplary Knights of the 2022-2023 school year! Check out the Superintendent’s monthly newsletter for more details about our Exemplary Knight process.
Good afternoon. I wanted you to know that a fire alarm was pulled at BRIJHS earlier this afternoon. The building was evacuated. There was no fire and everyone is safe. Thank you. #br_u_knighted
BRIJHS 6th graders started their science classes with a unit on design thinking/engineering. Students had to build the tallest tower that supported an observation deck (marshmallow) and a boat that held the most passengers (pennies). After that, they explored some real world engineering projects to determine if the products were a success or failure, as well as where the engineers went wrong in their process or what could have been improved. The final task will be to build a device to save a sloth from a tree over a pit of alligators! #br_u_knighted

Our kindergarteners have been loving Mad Science Mondays! This week we are using our observation skills to find the difference between living and non-living things. We used real worms and gummy worms to study these differences! 🥼🪱 #br_u_knighted
Schneider parents, It appears the messaging feature with parent / teacher communication within the SeeSaw platform has been restored. We appreciate your patience as they worked through the issue. #br_u_knighted

Schneider parents - SeeSaw, a communication platform we use, has temporarily disabled messaging for parents due to a concern (not specific to our district). Parents, if you login to SeeSaw messaging, you will notice that you cannot connect. If you need to contact your student's teacher, please use their district email to do so. We are currently unsure of how long this feature will be disabled. Thank you! #br_u_knighted
