Bryan Elementary School Home
Parents/Guardians and Students,
Let me begin by introducing myself! My name is Dori Villalobos and I will be Leading Bryan Elementary as your principal. I have been dedicated to the field of education for 30 years and I am honored to lead a school with rich tradition in “EXCELLENCE.”
I will work along with teachers and staff to “Rise” to the challenges and ensure that all students have the opportunity to grow academically and emotionally. We will build strong relationships with parents, students and community stakeholders to make learning a top priority.
Teachers and staff will use data to drive instruction and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigor manner so we can continue to excel in all aspects of student learning.
In addition, I want everyone who walks into Bryan Elementary to feel WELCOMED and LOVED by the “Bear” community. I am looking forward to meeting you and excited for an EXTRAORDINARY school year.
The Texas Book Festival will go entirely virtual for our 25th anniversary, as our primary concern is keeping our readers and authors safe. Due to concerns surrounding in-person gatherings in light of COVID-19, the 2020 virtual Texas Book Festival will now take place October 31 through November 15. Moving to an all-virtual Festival will give us the opportunity to expand our annual Festival weekend to two full weeks of virtual programming. We hope this means many more of you can attend our events from the comfort and safety of your living room, near and far. We’ll miss seeing all of you throughout the grounds of the Texas State Capitol and along Congress Avenue in Austin this year, but we recognize that our mission of bringing together readers and authors to celebrate books and literacy is, in some ways, more important than ever. Books help keep us connected, after all, and we want to stay connected to you by offering two weeks of author panels and interviews, readings, and more. This year’s virtual Festival will feature more than 125 authors, including programming for adults, young adults, middle-grade readers, and children. Stay tuned for more announcements coming soon!
