Bear Creek Elementary PTA

School's out for Summer... but join us for summer fun!

Community Serve Day:

Community serve day will be here before we know it! Mark your calendars for August 20th from 9-1. This is such a great opportunity to make a difference at our school, meet new families, and show some Bobcat pride. We will be helping teachers move or set up their classrooms, clean up the flower beds and spread some bark, get the school looking great for the new year! Lunch will be provided when we are done by the Bear Creek PTA.

This is not just for Bear Creek families. We will have lots of church groups, work groups, neighborhood groups so get signed up before all of the spots are full!

You must be signed up to help:

Contact Kate Dick or Jennifer Rodgers if you have any questions. We will also be looking for a few project leaders. Let us know if you're interested. This will be a great day!

School Supplies
Hi Parents! Just wanted to let you know we are not using SchoolKidz for our supplies this year. After last years sales we had feedback that made us reconsider this program. We also did a comparison with Target and Amazon and found Target has a great school supply program called School List Assist, and their prices couldn’t be beat. Once our school lists are available, you will be able to order your student’s supplies online, and have them delivered to you or you can pick them up! Here is the Link for more information: schoollistassist#/?_k=pmqicj ... read full article
