Congratulations to Emma Flanagan, Parker Fisher and Tanner Baker, accompanied by Dr. Douglas Marvin, for a job well done at the BBQ regional qualifier! The team placed 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 6th in the five categories of chicken, beans, dessert, ribs and brisket respectively. Each student earned a 3,000 dollar scholarship to culinary school if they choose to pursue it as well as the hardware for our school.
The administration has determined it is in the best interest of the District to cancel school on Friday because of the large number of staff members requesting off that day and the projected low student attendance on that day. Click this story for additional information.
The No Place for Hate® initiative provides educators and students with the resources to ensure that anti-bias and diversity education are an integral part of the school curriculum. No Place for Hate® also helps to create and sustain inclusive school environments where all students feel valued and have the opportunity to succeed by promoting respect for individual difference while challenging bigotry and prejudice.

Quest High School participated in BCISD's "Day of Service" recognition in honor of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Quest High School's BBQ competition team "Quest for 'Que" started the BBQ pit early this morning to create BBQ plates for our first responders and police officers in Burnet. The team members cooked ribs, pulled pork, sausage, all the sides and even their signature dutch oven peach cobbler for all to enjoy. It was a fabulous day being able to recognize our hometown heroes including our very own school board member Mr. Mark Kincaid.
Please join us in congratulating Ethan Thiels for earning the most reading

Please join me in congratulating Mrs. Kim Headrick as the Gem of Appreciation for our campus! Kim joined the Quest family earlier this year as a long term substitute assisting with our special education program. Since that time Kim has been hired as an instructional partner to continue to assist our campus. Kim has a positive influence on our student population and is always willing to help any student overcome difficulties. Her patience and ability to find the best in students makes her a true Gem for our campus. We are blessed to have her as part of our team and we look forward to working with her daily as she makes a positive impact on students' success.
Santa was spotted at the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at BHS! He had plenty of help from the QHS elves as they took pictures and handed out candy canes to all the excited children that came to see him!
Each year students at Quest High School take a field trip to the Pacific War Museum to learn more about World War II and the men and women who served. This special event was surrounded by wonder and awe as the students were able to experience the small living quarters on a mini sub and view a fast attack boat like the one John F. Kennedy served on. After the museum students and staff headed to GattiLand in Fredericksburg for lunch and had a wonderful time. These are the authentic experiences that "Craft the Future" for our students in Burnet CISD. Thank you for supporting our fundraisers which make these experiences possible for our students.
Each year Quest High School helps with activities at the Fall Festival held at Shady Grove Elementary School. The students of Quest High School supervise fun carnival games and hand out candy to the excited first graders. It is a special time for our students and the students of Shady Grove Elementary. Mrs. Darlene Denton hosts the event and we always wonder who has more fun...the students at Quest High School or the elementary students. Face painting is always a hit alongside our guest visitor with horses. We share a special partnership with the parent resource center and our students love to participate in giving back to our community. A special shout out to all of the students and teachers who participated as everyone had fun.
Quest High School participated in our annual homecoming picnic and decorated our school float for the parade. Many students participated and we had 15 students join us for the parade that evening. We love to celebrate Spirit, Pride and Honor at Quest High School by supporting our homecoming football team. It was a great evening to watch the Bulldogs come away with a victory.
Amy and Steven from our local HEB dropped by with insulated lunch bags filled with treats for our faculty and staff. Thank you for your continued support and generosity within our district!
