Brooker Creek Elementary

Happy Friday, Bobcat Families!

It has been a great week at Brooker Creek celebrating Start with Hello. We enjoyed seeing our Bobcats participate both on campus and from home. On Monday we are having a Tampa Bay Lightning Day, hopefully, to celebrate a Stanley Cup victory or to cheer on our team in Game 6. Please have your child join us in their favorite Lightning gear or blue on Monday, September 28th.

Now that October is approaching, many families are asking about what is going to happen at the end of the first quarter (9 weeks) of the year. Our school district is working on the plan and the district website ( states that the plan will be communicated on or before October 1st. I will be communicating the process out to our community after it is shared with me. I appreciate your patience and understanding.

Have a wonderful weekend. Go BOLTS!

Mrs. Mekler

Tradition (Brick and Mortar) Students

Did you check a device out during the 4th quarter? Many families have been inquiring about how and when to return the PCS device that was checked out last year or for Summer Bridge. If your child has returned to the building for school, we will now be checking devices back in. This will help us to get much-needed technology back in our classrooms. There are a few ways to return a device.

  1. Send the device in with your child. Teachers will be contacting Mrs. Gabbert to check-in the device if a student brings it to the classroom.
  2. Call the school to arrange a time to drop the device off.
  3. Email Mrs. Jajuga at to arrange to drop a device off.

We will begin calling families to arrange for device return(s) in October.

BCE PTA Update

Thank you to all of the families that have joined our amazing PTA. We have almost reached the halfway mark to match membership from the 19-20. The link to join is below. Joining PTA is one of the easiest ways to support your BCE community.

Attached below you will find our Business Sponsor Form. If you know a business that would like to partner with our school, please share the information with them. We are grateful for all memberships, business, and family. We are truly better together!

Breakfast and Lunch Preorders

Mr. Shane and our cafeteria staff are so grateful for the time that you are spending communicating your Bobcat's lunch orders. Below you will find the links for October 5th through October 9th.

When parents spend a few minutes pre-ordering their child’s lunch, it allows our cafe team to plan ahead. These forms allow us to break the meals out by teacher and have them ready when the students come into the lunchroom and reduce the amount of time they have to spend in line. Pre-ordered meals also help us to reduce waste by only making food that is needed based on the orders.

For our MyPCS families picking up food on Fridays, the times for pick up are each Friday from 9:15-9:45 in the multipurpose room. Please drive through the car circle and stop at the double doors for the multipurpose room. Please stay in the car and someone will come to assist you.

Thank you for your help!
