Home of the Blue Ribbon Braves
Thank you to Kings Dental and CCBMS PTA for their contributions to the Braves Go Green initiative. Brandenburg staff and students donated 415 pair of sneakers to be recycled. That's 830 shoes!!! Worn out athletic shoes are ground down to create a material which is used to make high-quality sports surfaces. We are also initiating a reusable bag program in addition to recycling plastic bags.
Hip Hop Into Spring on March 21 from 4-6 pm. You bring the moves and Brandenburg will bring the tunes! Tickets are $5 and will be sold at the door. Pizza, candy, and drinks will be available for purchase in the cafeteria. Photo Ops will also be available for $1 - post your pics on Instagram or Tweet using #braveshiphop!
The Classical Center at Brandenburg’s ALE classes need your help! We would like to take all of our special needs students and a parent to Morgan’s Wonderland this spring. Morgan’s Wonderland is a special needs theme park in San Antonio. Every ride attraction is accessible so no child is left out! Our students do not attend traditional field trips so this will be a once in a lifetime opportunity. You can help by sharing our page on social media & e-mail. Thanks for your support!
Vote for your Favorite Teacher
At the end of each month, the Garland ISD teacher with the most votes will be named Teacher of the Month and win this car to drive for a month! The deadline to vote is the 23rd of each month. The winner will be announced and presented with the car during the last week of each month. Cast your votes now!
Snow Day Makeups
Mark your calendars! We will be in school on April 7th and June 6th.

Brandenburg is going GREEN!
As Brandenburg continues going GREEN, we are now collecting plastic bags! When you turn in 40 (or more) plastics bags, you wil receive a GREEN recycle bag as well as a jeans pass! Bags will be collected by the west door.
The 2013-14 yearbooks are on sale now! The price of the yearbook is $30. You can pick up an order form from Mrs. Greeno (Rm. 22) or you can order them online. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to remember your middle school friends and experiences forever!
Brandenburg encourages parents to feel free to visit or take part in our volunteer program. Volunteer assistance is needed in the clinic, library, learning lab, and classrooms. Volunteers are also need for our sixth grade Enterprise City field trips the week of November 18-22. Filling out a volunteer form does not obligate you to volunteer. There is a strict district deadline and we would like all parents to have the opportunity to participate in the school volunteer program if they wish. Please call the school office or pick up volunteer forms to sign up as a school volunteer.
Spirit shirts and sweat shirts are available for purchase on Thursdays only during lunches. Spirit shirts are $10 and sweat shirts are $20. Spirit dress can be worn every Friday with spirit shirt/sweat shirt and school appropriate jeans. You can also purchase your PE tee & shorts for $25 as well as a draw string bag for $5.
