BMS Receives another Award

After the hard work of BMS students and staff, led by the Interact Club, BMS has been awarded again by Sandy Hook Promise.
 
During Say Something week in October, over 750 students were trained and had practical exercises to learn the signs that someone they know maybe planning to harm themselves or others.
 
Because our student leadership, and plan of sustainability, Sandy Hook Promise awarded us the "Say Something Week Community Reach and Sustainability Winner." This award recognizes how supportive the Burnet community has been to our efforts as well as the plans we have to sustain our plan to Say Something. 
 
Burnet is the only small school in the United States that will be a pilot school for the "Say Something App" which is an anonymous reporting app for students of BCISD. This app will provide an anonymous way for students and others, to report concerns that they have for their fellow students. BCISD, the Burnet Police Department and Sandy Hook Promise are working hand in hand to make this app a resource to continue to keep our schools and community a safe place to live.
