From the Principal/Del Director Dr. Bryan Williams As our first semester comes to a close, I’d like to
thank you for partnering with our school to ensure
a successful and productive first semester. Our
final exams will take place during the week of
December 13th -16th. Early dismissal days will take
place on December 14th, 15th, and 16th. All
semester grades will be submitted by teachers
before school resumes on Wed, January 4th.
I’d like to make a correction from our last edition of
Bear Facts. We submitted the incorrect names of
parents who hosted our Grade Level PTA Coffees
in early September. I’d like to thank the following
parents for hosting PTA Coffees: Lisa Taylor (8th
grade), Kristi Barnhill (7th grade), and Rita
Bishara (6th grade). Please accept our apologies
for publishing the incorrect names.
The SBMS CIT recently approved our new
re-testing procedure which will go into effect for the
second semester (January 2012). Our current
procedure provides academic students and 6th
grade Pre-AP students (first semester only) with an
opportunity to retake a test if they receive a failing
grade. This procedure was not in alignment with
our current Board policy. Our Board policy states,
“A student shall be permitted a reasonable
opportunity to retake a test for which the student
received a failing grade.” Our new practice will
provide all students with an opportunity to retake a
test if they score below a 70 on an exam. Look
forward to specifics of this new practice in the next
edition of Bear Facts.
Congratulations to our Social Studies Department!
Spring Branch Middle has earned a Gold
Performance Acknowledgement for 2011 social
studies student performance on TAKS. The award
goes to schools that had 30% or more of its
students scoring at the commended level for each
of our accountability sub-groups.
Finally, have a peaceful and safe holiday season!

En virtud de que el primer semestre está por terminar, me
gustaría agradecer su asociación con nuestra escuela para
asegurar un primer semestre exitoso y productivo. Nuestros
exámenes se llevarán a cabo durante la semana de
diciembre 13-16. Los días de salida anticipada serán el 14,
15 y 16 de diciembre. Todas las calificaciones semestrales
serán enviadas a los maestros antes de que se reanuden las
clases, el miércoles 4 de enero.
Me gustaría hacer una corrección a nuestra última
edición de Bear Facts. Reportamos nombres incorrectos de
padres de familia que fueron anfitriones de nuestros Grade
Level PTA Coffees, a principios del mes de septiembre. Me
gustaría agradecer a los siguientes padres de familia por ser
los anfitriones de los PTA Coffees: Lisa Taylor (8o grado),
Kristi Barnhill (7o grado),y Rita Bishara (6o grado). Por
avor, acepten nuestras disculpas si publicamos los nombres
incorrectamente.
El CIT de SBMS aprobó recientemente nuestro procedimiento
de repetición de exámenes que entrará en vigor el segundo
semestre (enero de 2012). Nuestro procedimiento actual da
a los estudiantes de academia y a los estudiantes Pre-Ap
del 6o grado (primer semestre solamente), la oportunidad de
presentar nuevamente el examen si es que lo reprueban.
Este procedimiento no está alineado con nuestra política de
la Junta Directiva actual. Nuestra política de la Junta
establece: “Se le permitirá a un estudiante una
oportunidad razonable para presentar nuevamente un
examen en el cual el estudiante haya sido reprobado".
Nuestra nueva práctica dará a todos los estudiantes una
oportunidad de presentar nuevamente el examen, si obtienen
una calificación de menos de 70 en un examen. Busque los
datos específicos de esta nueva práctica en la siguiente
edición de Bear Facts.
¡Felicitaciones a nuestro Departamento de Estudios
Sociales! La Escuela Intermedia de Spring Branch ha ganado
un Gold Performance Acknowledgement for 2011 en el
desempeño en estudios sociales en TAKS. El premio se lo
otorgan a las escuelas que tuvieron 30% o más de sus
estudiantes con calificaciones al nivel recomendado para
cada uno de nuestros sub-grupos de contabilidad.
Finalmente, ¡espero que tengan una temporada de días festivos pacífica y segura!

Gobble, gobble everyone! It’s that time
of the year when we prepare for turkeys, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. So, it’s in the spirit of the
Thanksgiving season that I would like to thank
everyone for my warm reception here at Spring
Branch Middle School (SBMS). My name is
Emilio Herrera and I am the Communities In
Schools (CIS) project manager at SBMS. CIS
has served students in the Greater Houston
Area since 1979. CIS is a campus-based, nonprofit organization providing direct services and
resources to children with unmet needs. By
surrounding them with a community of support,
CIS strives to empower students to stay in
school and achieve in life.
A CIS-PTA community luncheon will
be hosted Monday, December 5th from
11:45am to 1:00pm on our campus. We hope
that you’ll be able to join us and learn a little
more about CIS! There is no cost for the luncheon but we do kindly ask that you please RSVP
for the event. To do so, please contact Cecilia
Garcia at 713-654-1515 x131 or via e-mail at
[email protected] The community
luncheon will also serve as an opportunity to
promote the CIS-PTA Coat Drive which will
take place Nov. 29th through Dec. 9th. Donations will be accepted at designated collection
boxes at SBMS or may be collected at the
luncheon.
For more information on CIS of Houston, feel free to visit our website at www.cishouston.org. For more information on CIS at

¡Saludos a todos! Ya se ha llegado esa
época del año en la cual nos llenamos de pavo,
relleno, y postres a reventar. Pues en vísperas
del Día de Acción de Gracias, quisiera dar mis

dado aquí en la Escuela Intermedia Spring

soy el director de Comunidades en las Escuelas (CIS) en la SBMS. CIS ha servido a estudiantes en la Zona Metropolitana de Houston

Un almuerzo comunitario, ofrecido por CIS y la Asociación de Padres y
Maestros (PTA), se llevará a cabo en nuestra
escuela el lunes, 5 de diciembre, de las 11:45

Choirs
On October 15, fourteen Choir members in sixth, seventh and eighth grades participated in the
SBISD Choir Solo and Ensemble Contest at Spring Forest MS.
All SBMS Choir students excelled and brought home one Outstanding Performance gold medal,
eleven gold and three silver medals!
Those earning gold medals were Zoe Goodling, Megan Duke, Madison Duke, Elena Frederick,
Brianna Trotter, Dominique Fields, Karen Luna, Jasmine Norton, Sarah Stephenson, Zachary
Ocanas and Dallas Sbar. Silver medalists were Karina Esquivel, Natalia Neri and Zoe Goodling.
Receiving the highest honor of Outstanding Performance was sixth grader Grace Klam. Great
job, everyone!
Earlier this month on November 11, there was a school-wide program for Veterans Day.
Students from all organizations in the Music Department were represented and performed
beautifully. Choir students singing solos that day were Sarah Stephenson, Grace Klam, Brianna
Trotter and Zoe Goodling. I am very proud of all Choir, Orchestra and Band students for the
way they performed with such dignity on this occasion.
Our Fall Fundraiser begins on Monday, November 21 and will end on December 1
with all orders and payments being due that day. We will sell cookie dough which
will be delivered in time for the holidays on December 16. While participation in
the fundraiser is optional, please consider having your child participate as we are
raising funds to pay for new uniforms for the girls. There will be another
fundraiser in the spring to help students pay for their Reward Trip in May.
Our last concert for this semester will take place on Thursday, December 8. It will be in the
auditorium and start at 6:30 p.m. with all students needing to show at 5:45 for a warm-up and
closed rehearsal with our accompanist. I look forward to seeing you there!

Orchestra Rocks!
Music Notes from Mrs. Shaw ~
The SBMS Orchestra Kids are Busy Bears and celebrating their many
successes and preparing for the future concerts. Violinists Annie Norris, Philip
Chong, and Aidan Loggenberg, and clarinet player, Patrick Bishara, auditioned
into the Texas Region 27 Orchestra, representing our school’s music programs as Texas’s best musicians. I am so proud of them. Such outstanding musical development and maturity was demonstrated at
Langham Creek High School on November 14th, 18th, and 19th in chair auditions, sectionals, rehearsals,
and concerts. Be sure to congratulate these fine students when you see them.
I encourage orchestra parents to encourage daily practice of specific assignments in order to develop improved playing techniques and to be able to perform music to insure musical development. As
with anything, correct and consistent practice is the only insurance for student success with progress being made in a timely manner. In addition, students are required to attend section rehearsals / orchestra
rehearsals which are graded. If desired, students may study with a private teacher and can apply for a
teacher through their orchestra director.
Our first semester orchestra has celebrated with a skating party, rehearsal treats, lunch time in
the orchestra hall with a short movie time, and in house movie party to watch “CARS 2”. The orchestra
picture make-up date will most likely in January. Specific information will come soon and be posted on the
SBMS Orchestra Web site.
Our beginner orchestra students are learning to play their instruments at a fast pace and I would
like to congratulate them personally. “I believe all of you are doing a wonderful job and I encourage you to
continue your good work!”
I ask you to spread the word to join orchestra to our elementary school students!
Orchestra is a wonderful group to belong to where you can learn to play an awesome string instruments
to play beautiful music in a large orchestra ensemble. “It’s the greatest experience and there is nothing
like it! Students can select string bass, cello, viola, or violin to play. If they already play they can go into
one of two performing orchestras. Music instruments are easily rented or purchased from local violin
shops for very reasonable fees.
Thank you to our parent volunteers for stepping up to help
out so much! You are wonderful and make a world of difference in
our success!
Remember, Practice Every Day That You Eat!
Sincerely Yours,
Shauna Shaw
SBMS Orchestra Director
