A Message From Ms. Saenz

Hello cubs!


Happy April,


April is a month with lots to celebrate including Earth Day (4/22), National Poetry Month, and School Librarian Week.


In the library we will be sharing poems from poets all around the world! Poetry is one of my favorite genres, and I am excited to share this love with you all.


I invite you to join me on Thursday, April 29th for “Poem in Your Pocket Day”. Poem in Your Pocket Day is an international movement that encourages people to center poetry within their daily interactions. On P.I.Y.P. Day, select a poem, carry it with you, and share it with others at your school, libraries, bookstores, and at home.


I will be carrying a special poem in my pocket and would love to share my poem with you, and you share your poem with me!


If you need help finding a poem, come to the library! Our front display is in honor of National Poetry Month and we have many poetry books to choose from!


Also, please check out our Virtual Libraries Page on Blend! I have included four new libraries: Shel Silverstein (my favorite poet), Earth Day, Spring Readings, and Space! We now have a total 20 virtual libraries to read from!


Happy Reading!

A Message From Ms. Schultz

Hello Bear Creek Families!


This week we will be celebrating Pride Week with a PE lesson on Kindness. As part of this lesson we're creating a bulletin board that will have a digital component to it. We're putting together a slide show of BCE students being the I in KIND! It is optional for students to participate, but I want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to do so. In PE I've been taking pictures of students that want to be a part of the slideshow. It's a bit trickier for me to get pics of my Zoomies / Remote Learners. So, I've given them access to the background slides and have made a video on how to get me their picture. Click on the KIND imagine above to access this information, it is also posted on BLEND for each grade level.


Please continue to use the PE BLEND Courses as your first source of information regarding PE, and message me through Blend or email with any further questions. Each grade level PE BLEND Course is linked below.


Thank you for your continued support!
