 This week's hot links

Volunteer Dashboard

Bear Creek PTA is a volunteer run organization.  We have lots of amazing volunteers, and as always have lots of volunteer openings this year. 

All of the amazing programs we run rely on volunteer help.  Helping, even for a couple of hours a year with an event setup or cleanup is an amazing help - and you get to have fun & meet great people. 


Health Screening Volunteers Needed – October 22nd
Health screening day is October 22nd and the nurse would love to have a few volunteers.

Interested? Please let Kate Dick know if you can help. katedick@comcast.net 

 

Bingo Night Needs your Help

We need prize donations of a $5 value or less.

Examples include: Books, stuffed animals, action figures, key chains, blind bags, dolls, jump ropes, balls and games are just some ideas (no candy, please). A collection box is in the main office.
 
We also need a few volunteers to help with setting up and packing up, as well as selling snacks and drinks on the night (half hour slots). Please see Signup Genius link below:
 
 
Please contact Donna Gregoratto at dmpowell@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering or have any questions.
 

PTA Website Help Wanted!

Would you like to volunteer, but can’t get to school? Our webmaster needs some help with weekly updates on the pta website.

Watch D.O.G.S. and BCE Frogs

 

YES, I CAN VOLUNTEER FOR DAY  THIS SCHOOL YEAR!

 

If you are a father, grandfather or male family member Bear Creek Elementary is excited to launch a family and community engagement program called WATCH D.O.G.S. ® (Dads Of Great Students) in Fall 2018. The WATCH D.O.G.S.® program is one of the largest and most respected family and community engagement initiatives in the country. Each year thousands of schools across the country utilize the WATCH D.O.G.S.® program to reach out to the fathers and father-figures of their students and invite those men to take at least one full day off work during the school year and spend that entire day volunteering in their child’s school. 

If you are a mother, grandmother or female family member the Bear Creek Elementary F.R.O.G.S. (friends and relatives of great students) is the program for you! The BCE F.R.O.G.S. program was created to offer a volunteering option for parents, family members and friends of Bear Creek students who want to be more involved but who are unable to volunteer on a more frequent basis. Our program's goal is to increase parent involvement and grow our school community by supporting and promoting the wellbeing of our students and their school! BCE F.R.O.G.S. invites mothers, family and friends of Bear Creek students to take at least one full day off work during the school year and spend that entire day volunteering in their child’s school.

 

             Our goal is to have at least one volunteer per week for the school year beginning the first week of October.
