Message from the Principal

Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,

Wow! This year is really flying by! It is hard to believe that it is already November and that we are only days away from Thanksgiving Break!

We have already accomplished so much this year and are looking forward to experiencing more success and fun as this semester winds down. If you do not already follow Bridge Creek Intermediate School on Facebook, please do so in order to stay informed of all the fun activities, important announcements, and student and staff celebrations at BCIS!

Please take the time to continue reading this Newsletter as it contains lots of information about activities and events coming up between now and Christmas!

As always, my door is always open and I'm just a phone call away if there is anything you need that I can help with, please don't hesitate to reach out!


Mrs. Binet’ Castleberry, BCIS Principal

Mr. Jody Caruthers, BCIS Assistant Principal

Bridge Creek Intermediate School
