Dear BRYSS Families,


Welcome to our 2019-2020 School Year!  I am so excited to begin this new school year.  As the demands and complexities of teaching our children increase, it has become evident that we need to work together to insure that our students reach their full potential. BRYSS recognizes that the years spent in school are essential in building the foundation for success and happiness in life.

Personally, I am grateful to continue this journey as your Principal.  BRYSS will continue the quest to graduate College Ready students.  We are committed to inspiring and preparing our students using a strong curriculum that focuses on all core subjects. BRYSS promotes a culture that fosters positive self-esteem and a sense of belonging to all our students

It is my desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place in school. If you have any questions or concerns, remember we are just a phone call away 956-574-7100.

Estimadas Familias de BRYSS,


Bienvenidos al año escolar 2019-2020!  Estoy muy emocionada de empezar este nuevo año.  A medida que las exigencias y complejidades aumentan al enseñar a los niños, es evidente que necesitamos trabajar juntos para asegurarnos que nuestros estudiantes alcancen su mayor potencial.  BRYSS reconoce que los años que los niños pasan en la escuela son esenciales para construir una base para el éxito y felicidad en la vida.

Personalmente, estoy muy agradecida de continuar en esta jornada como directora.    En BRYSS nos  esforzámos por graduar estudiantes preparados para continuar sus estudios universitarios. Estamos comprometidos en motivar y preparer a nuestros estudiantes utilizando un curriculum sólido que se enfoque en las materias básicas.  BRYSS promueve a todos nuestros estudiantes una cultura de autoestima positiva y un sentido de pertenecer.

Mi deseo es mantenarlos informados acerca de todo lo que sucede en nuestra escuela.  Si tiene alguna preocupación o pregunta, recuerde que puede llamar al teléfono (956)574.7103
