Burkburnett HS Student 2 Student (S2S) Club celebrated our VIP military-connected students and staff by serving over 84 people with a Red Carpet VIP Breakfast yesterday morning. We appreciate our military-connected students (and staff) so much!! This campus wouldn't be the same without them!
Colonel Kirk Peterson, 82nd Training Wing Vice Commander at Sheppard AFB stated that “BISD has over 600 students from S.A.F.B ... One of the reasons BISD is so appealing to our military families is because this high school and district takes care of our students and this organization (S2S).”
Now that's #TheBulldogWay!!
BIG Bulldog shoutout to the BHS Baseball team!! They served popcorn to our military students today!! #momc #BulldogBaseballTeamRocks #bulldogway

From Mayor Lori Kemp:
Today ranked at the top of my mayoral moments thus far. I had the privilege of spending my morning with the amazing kids who represent the S2S (student to student) Program at BISD, and signed a Proclamation declaring April the “Month of the Military Child” in City of Burkburnett, TX. Our chamber at city hall was filled with laughter and excitement from kids from all BISD campuses, their Principles & Vice Principals, administration, and even Dr. Brad Owen and Dr. Audrey Ash.
The kids and I went live, took selfies, and, a few even took over the Mayor chair and hit the gavel! I love seeing our cities youth engaging in such a meaningful program. A program with the sole purpose of making new kids feel welcome in our community and making their transition into our schools as smooth as possible.
I welcome, and cherish, every opportunity to involve and engage our youth in city government in hopes it will one day inspire them to step into leadership positions in our community and contribute their greatness to the future of our city!
Thank you to Burkburnett ISD for such a wonderful morning, to all the kids who attended, who I hope will share their selfies, to News Channel 6 KAUZ for being there to cover the event, and to our City Clerk Margie Poole for being there on a city holiday to make all of this possible.
During this legislative session, our legislators have an unprecedented amount of additional funding to allocate. As with all businesses, the cost of doing business as a school district has skyrocketed. We need our legislators to make a statement of support this session for the 5.5 million students we educate in Texas schools, and for the over 400,000 school system employees! Increase the basic allotment and fund pay increases.
No school April 10, 2023. This is a teacher work day. Enjoy your long weekend!
A few of our students have work on display at the Wichita Falls Art Association gallery during the month of April. Please drop by during the opening reception or check it out during the upcoming Art Walk. Way to go!!
