Parent Involvement Works!


One of the most stressful times of the school year is during the testing season. When in reality it should be a time of; “Yes! We are here and ready to compete and show off the knowledge we have stored in our brains!” But instead people are agitated, grumpy, and completely stressed out and just about ready to give up. This is the time of year that students want to dropout because they feel the odds are against them and there is no one there for them. I want to bring to the forefront the vital role that parents play in dropout prevention. It has been shown that students who drop out, and do not earn a high school diploma face a very difficult future. They are more likely to be unemployed or earn half as much as someone with a high school diploma. They are also more likely to be incarcerated, and live in poverty. The task of identifying the students who are most likely to drop out can be tricky. Some students with no risk factors may dropout and some with many risk factors may in fact finish school with no problems at all. Although risk factors alone are not a dropout predictor alone, parents need to be aware and in touch with what risks, their child may currently be expressing. Some common risk factors are, skipping school, failing classes, discipline problems at school and at home, changes in behavior and attitude. Often times when students decide to drop out of school they simply stop going to school and no one seems to notice or care. They have problems with teachers, dislike school or are struggling in their classes. Many times though, they leave school due to financial reasons, or family emergencies. The reasons may be many, but the end result of a student dropping out is a lifelong struggle. Being a parent is tough; you have to be the provider, the disciplinarian and oftentimes best friend. Those lines often become blurred and with our own daily struggles it is difficult to keep everything in our lives together. Reading, writing, and math skills are the foundation for learning in all subjects. One of the most important things parents can do is help their children build these skills in their elementary school years and continue to stay encouraged and involved throughout their child’s middle school and high school years. Just because your child stops bringing home books to read does not mean that they are finished reading. Ask them how their day was and what interesting things they have read. Let your child know that you value their education. Talk to your child about school problems and achievements, praise them for good behavior and help them understand their shortcomings. Know who your children’s friends are and meet their parents. Make sure that these are the types of kids and role models you want your children to be around.

This is where family involvement is one of the most important contributions to school completion and success. One of the most accurate predictors of student school achievement is the extent to which the family encourages learning and has reasonable expectations for the student’s education and future career path. Middle school and high school students whose parents remain involved tend to make better transitions, have higher graduation rates, and advance to postsecondary education or qualified vocational jobs.

All students need to know that everyone involved in the educational process cares and wants what is best for them, but parent involvement is a crucial part of the process. Parents need to attend school functions and visits with teachers when they see any changes in the student’s attitudes towards school. All stakeholders need to have a vested interest in the student’s success. When expectations are set high then our students will achieve high goals, but this is only when both parents and educators both have the same high expectations. So with the onset of STAAR testing time, take a deep breath and know that we are all in this together and together “Cubs Soar High”.

Sincerely,
Chris Edwards, BEC Principal






Brownfield Middle School News

BMS STUDENTS HAVE P.R.I.D.E.


It has been a wonderful year at Brownfield Middle School (BMS). We don’t just prepare students for tests; we also prepare them for life. We do this in many ways, especially through our P.R.I.D.E. program: “BMS students have P.R.ID.E! Perseverance, Responsibility, Integrity, Discipline and Expectations for others and ourselves”. Our students recite this at the end of our announcements each day. In working with all students, I see them applying these very words in their everyday actions.

Perseverance is the quality that allows someone to continue trying to do something even through its difficulties, failure, or opposition. Confucius once said, “ It does not matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop.” Well, BMS students don’t stop! Our athletic accomplishments speak for themselves. We have had a great year in all sports, band and choir. Not only are the students persevering in athletics, they are also persevering in their everyday learning. Perseverance will get them to graduation and on to their future careers.

Responsibility is the state or fact of being accountable for something. American entrepreneur, Jim Rohn said, “You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.” Students are learning this in their everyday actions. They are coming to realize that they don’t have to sweat the small stuff, but focus on the more important things such as build character and not ask that others change, but that they are accountable and have the ability to change themselves in many ways.

Integrity is the quality of being honest and fair. British author, Peter Hamilton, said, “If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.” Integrity means you are going to have to take a stand. Through the P.R.I.D.E program students learn that being honest is key to taking care of everyday problems. Students stand up for themselves and others. They take care of one another and show this care on a daily basis.

Discipline is a control gained by obedience and/or order. John Wooden, well-known basketball coach from UCLA stated: “Discipline yourself, and others won’t need to.” Using good classroom discipline techniques, our students thrive in everyday learning. We are learning that when we experience mistakes, what we learn from them is the greater experience. Students are learning that they have choices and are responsible for their own actions. It’s not so much about others’ actions, it’s about our actions and choices we make in reaction to different situations.

Expectations are a belief that something will happen or is likely to happen. Mandela said, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” A mission impossible is possible with an understanding that the expectation is to reach a goal. Students know that the staff at BMS expects great things from all students. We are all working towards Academic Excellence in all that we do. Working together, parents & teachers, we will achieve great excellence in producing well-rounded students.


Sincerely,
Nori Banda Assistant Principal
Brownfield Middle School

Cub Tennis wins back to back district championships! So proud of you, Cubs and Lady Cubs!

The Brownfield Cub Tennis team captured their second consecutive district championship on Wednesday, as the Cubs qualified 9 individuals for the upcoming Regional Tournament. Brownfield had some extremely strong play from the Lady Cubs as they cruised to their second consecutive district title as well. Overall, the girls were able to outpace Stanton, scoring 35.5 points for Brownfield to Stanton’s 15 points, Denver City’s 7 points, and Coahoma’s 5 points.

The Lady Cubs singles players were playing some of the best tennis they have played so far. Freshman Jarys Boyd won a thrilling three set match in the semi-finals against a very tough Coahoma opponent 4-6, 6-3, 6-0 to set up a championship match against fellow Lady Cub Symphony Munoz. Both girls played hard and showed a lot of heart. It is always difficult to watch Brownfield play against Brownfield, but a little better knowing they were playing in the championship.

That was also the case in mixed doubles, as Daniel Rocha and Marissa Mireles caught team mates Antonio Pauda and Katelyn Garza in the championship match. Both mixed teams had an outstanding tournament. Antonio Pauda and Katelyn Garza defeated the top seeded team in the semis and Daniel and Marissa won their semi-finals match 6-2, 6-0 to set up another all Brownfield final.

Brooklyn Ryan and Alisha Zamora also had a great tournament as they easily got to the championship match where they faced a Denver City team that they had already beaten twice this year. The girls played strong and were able to defeat Denver City for a third time for the District Championship.

It has been such a fun year and all of the players have progressed so far and put in countless hours of work to reach this point. I appreciate everything they have done and all the sacrifices they make. It is nice knowing many of them return, but we will miss Matthew Garza. Matt is our only senior and has been a strong, consistent player and a leader on and off the court.

Final Results: Symphony Munoz – Girls Singles District Champion Jarys Boyd – Girls Singles District Runner-Up Brooklyn Ryan / Alisha Zamora – Girls Doubles District Champion Daniel Rocha / Marissa Mireles – Mixed Doubles District Champion Antonio Pauda / Katelyn Garza – Mixed Doubles District Runner-Up EJ Cantu – Boys Singles District Runner-Up Matthew Garza – Boys Singles 3rd Place Dylan Dyer / Tucker Richolson – Boys Doubles 4th Place
