Sweet memories were made at Alton Elementary as students celebrated Valentine’s Day. From kindergarten to fourth grade, students showed their kindness and friendship to each other by exchanging cards and candy.
Kindergarten classes graphed all their Valentine candy, first grade did a special writing about Valentines and made crafts, second grade shared snacks, third grade students worked through Valentine stations and fourth grade created their own special sundaes to devour!
The fun did not end there though. Students who displayed positive behavior and completed their work throughout the last six weeks got to participate in the Sweetheart Dance that day. They were able to enjoy a sweet treat, lemonade and a little dancing in the cafeteria.
Now that the sugar has worn off, the students are working hard to finish the six weeks strong.
At Brenham Elementary, first graders and their families are continuing an annual tradition of designing and building leprechaun traps. To outsmart these tricky creatures, the traps need to be clever. Families and students work as a team to create an original trap using items around the house. In class, students will develop a plan to take home and share with their parents. Traps are due March 6. After Spring Break, students will analyze their traps and get the opportunity to draw a redesign. Good luck, first graders!!

My name is Jazzmine Foston and I am a 6th grade student at Brenham Middle School. My favorite subject is Math because it can be really easy and challenging at the same time. What I enjoy most about Brenham Middle School are the teachers.
My homeroom teacher is Brandon Kluck. He teaches Science, Social Studies. He has been teaching at Brenham Middle School for 12 years and has taught a total of 20 years. Right now he is teaching us about the inside of earth in science and in social studies we will learn about the culture and geography in South Asia.
Some exciting things on the agenda for next week are:
On Monday the 24th is the beginning of the 5th six week. Friday the 28 will be house meetings,and for the whole week of the 24th will be Avid interviews for 6th graders.
I hope you have a great week!
Special shout-out this week to the amazing BHS PTO, who surprised the faculty/staff with Sonic drinks on Valentine’s Day. This week was shortened by a teacher workday/student holiday on Monday, but students and staff hit the ground running right after that.
Tuesday brought the English 1 EOC test for freshman students, and the week ended with the close of the 4th six weeks’ grading period. On Wednesday, all students were in attendance at an all-school assembly on the dangers of vaping, which opened a lot of eyes and informed everyone in attendance of the key aspects of this issue.
The Belles head out of town this Saturday to participate in the dance contest at Atascocita High School — Good luck, Belles!
