After School Class Student Behavior Contract
Please review this Behavior Contract with your child if she or he is attending after school enrichment classes.

Willy Wonka Music and Choreography
Cast and Parents: Here is the music and choreography for Willy Wonka!
The "Accompaniment" folder contains all the music mp3s without vocals. This includes songs and underscores for some of the speaking parts.

The "Choreography" folder contains our notes for the dances in case the students didn't have a chance to write their own detailed notes. This will continually be updated as we teach more dances.

The "With Vocal" folder contains mp3s of the songs with an actor singing.

Hopefully this gives everyone an opportunity to prepare and practice at home, making rehearsal time more productive.

Super Cool Science Show
The PTA is bringing the Pacific Science Center's "Super Cool Science Show" to Bear Creek on Feb 11! It's all about what happens when things get "super cool" with liquid nitrogen. Watch as gases become liquids, liquids become solids, and matter freezes, fizzes and flies!

Two assemblies on Feb 11 -- 9:30am and 10:25am

The Bear Creek Science Fair is coming soon!

Good news from the Art Docent Chairs
All of our classes now have Art docents. Thank you to everyone who signed up! Artwork may or not come home right away. Sometimes it is kept at school for art books that come home at the end of the year. When you do receive work from your child, you might like to ask them which artist they learned about, or which technique they were practicing. Did they like working with that medium? Why or why not?  Please keep in mind that some of the art that will come home might not look like a masterpiece. It’s is about the ... read full article

The time is simply long ago and the place is the magical, mythical Sherwood Forest. Our hero, Robin Hood, and his Merry Band of colorful characters seek the help of the Foresters, manage to waylay the Aristocrats and set out to rescue Maid Marion and Marion’s Maid. Prince John tries to stay calm as his Sheriff, guards and horsemen botch Robin’s arrest thanks to the aromatic Skunks. Wacky humor and an original score add to this fresh new look at a legendary outlaw in a legendary time.
