Book Exchange

The book exchange is quickly approaching! It’s a great time to clean out the book shelves and let your kids trade them in for some new reads for the summer months. For every two books brought in, your child can pick out 1 new book. Please send them into school in a bag marked with their name so the volunteers know how many books they can pick out. We will be keeping track as we pick them up from the classrooms. We are sending out a special plea for older kid books. We don’t usually get many so if you have older kid books they would be much appreciated by 5th and 6th graders! Any questions, please email Kim Hagstrom at kimhagstrom@live.com.

The School Board created a Start Time Task Force, with parent, community, staff and student representation, to research issues surrounding start times and develop a recommendation for board consideration on school start times for implementation in fall 2017. For more than a year, the task force has studied research ... read full article

Remember to submit your volunteer hours and donations for corporate matching
Thank you to all of our members for your support in this school year so far.  Without your generous donations of both volunteer time and money, the PTA would be unable to run the many programs that Bear Creek has had this year.    Many local employers run corporate matching programs that provide donations to the PTA that match time and money donated.  If you have already submitted your corporate matching applications to your employer, thank you.  If you haven't, we would appreciate it if you did.  It only takes a few minutes of your time and makes a huge difference.  Feel free to contact ... read full article
