Thank you for celebrating homecoming week with us! Go Cubs!
09/23/2019

Today is a great day to be a Cub!


One of the great things about living in Brenham is that we are a one high school town. Everyone bleeds Kelly green and white. Everyone is a life member of the Cub Nation and everyone cheers for the Cubs & Cubettes!


This week marks our homecoming celebrations, and Cubs from far and wide will return home to reminisce, reconnect with former friends and family, and make their way to Cub Stadium Friday night to cheer on the Cubs! I hope that you, too, will participate in the daily festivities this week, and enjoy the simple pleasure of being a Cub! It’s a PRIVILEGE to be a Cub!


I want our students to understand how special it is to grow up ten minutes from the birthplace of Texas and attend school in the oldest district in the state! Our Brenham culture is strong because of the values we share. Unity of spirit, honor, pride, and tradition are what we value and that’s why great things happen here!


Thank you for celebrating homecoming week with us! Go Cubs!

National Hispanic Heritage Month/El Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana
09/16/2019

Dear Cub Nation, today is a great day to be a Cub!


National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated Sept. 15-Oct. 15, and is a special time for us to celebrate the diversity in our district and community, as well as the contributions of the Hispanic and Latino cultures. During this time, we recognize the many accomplishments of Hispanic Americans and the impact they have had on our Texas and American culture. Our classroom teachers have developed lessons and activities to provide students with opportunities to examine, investigate, and learn more about the Hispanic and Latino cultures and their impact on our economy, society, government, entertainment, business, culture, and public education system. These continued efforts contribute to the present and future success of Washington County, the State of Texas, and our nation as a whole. We are proud of our Hispanic and Latino students, and we are truly stronger and better together!

Estimados Padres de Familia, ¡hoy es un gran día para ser un Cub de Brenham!


El Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana se celebra del 15 de septiembre al 15 de octubre. Es un momento especial en el que celebramos la diversidad en nuestro distrito y comunidad, así como las contribuciones de la cultura hispana y latina. En estas fechas, reconocemos los muchos logros de los hispanoamericanos y el impacto que han tenido en nuestra cultura de Texas y América. Los maestros de su hijos han desarrollado lecciones y actividades para proporcionar a los estudiantes oportunidades de examinar, investigar y aprender más sobre las culturas hispanas y latinas y su impacto en nuestra economía, sociedad, gobierno, entretenimiento, negocios, cultura y sistema de educación pública. Estos esfuerzos continuos contribuyen al éxito presente y futuro del condado de Washington, el estado de Texas y nuestra nación en general. ¡Estamos muy orgullosos de nuestros estudiantes hispanos y latinos! Somos mejores y más fuertes cuando trabajamos juntos.

We will never forget!
09/11/2019

Dear Cub Nation, 


Today marks the 18th anniversary of the terrible attacks on the New York World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. This was an attack on American freedoms, on democracy, and on our humanity. We commemorate and honor the more than 3,000 lives that were lost on that dreadful day of September 11, 2001. While we are secure in knowing that our nation has made tremendous strides and progress to ensure the safety and security of all Americans, we can never forget those who lost life and loved ones on that day.  


The students in our classrooms can't possibly internalize the trauma that we all experienced and shared while watching those horrific attacks take place in real time. We ask that you take time today to have a discussion with your children in an age-appropriate manner on how best to remember and honor the lives lost. The Brenham Public Schools remain committed to making our world a better place for all by teaching and modeling tolerance, civility, and how to extend the hands of peace towards all humanity. We also take this time to offer our sincerest thanks to all of our first responders and servicemen and women who continue to sacrifice their well-being for the sake of our peace and safety. 


We will never forget!  May God continue to bless America!


Dr. Walter Jackson

Superintendent of Schools
