BRAVE Update

Bear Creek Intermediate School

Be BRAVE Today!

Be BRAVE today! This is a mantra we are beginning to share with students daily! Monday marked a roll out of some school-wide expectations for our BCI Braves. Our Braves are amazing students and we want to be able to acknowledge and reinforce those amazing things they are doing, as well as address inappropriate behavior, with some campus-wide common language. We will use these guidelines as a basis to award our student Golden Braves and would love to have our families use them to continue nominating our teacher Golden Braves. They are as follows:

  • Be responsible
  • Reach your goals
  • Act respectfully
  • Value one another
  • Engage in learning
We look forward to seeing our Brave students and teachers exemplify these traits!!

Staff Golden Brave Nomination Form

Angel Tree

Student Council is sponsoring the Angel Tree program again this year. Bear Creek has been asked to focus on gifts for kids ages 10 and up because the storehouse runs out of gifts for that age group almost every year. The Community Storehouse is doing a holiday store for parents to come in and “shop” for the children in their families. This has been very successful and guarantees the kids will receive gifts they will really love.

All gifts need to be new and unwrapped. They must be turned in to your child’s teacher by Monday, December 14th. This is a great way our BCI Brave family serves our community. Please consider supporting our Student Council in their efforts! Please click the link below for ideas and suggestions.

Parking Heads Up

We know that parking has been a mess with our construction, but wanted to let you know that we had received a report that the Keller fire marshall has been out and ticketing cars that are parking in the fire lane. Please do not park in the fire lane, even if it is a quick trip to drop off an item or pick up a kiddo. We have marked two 10 minute parking spots for this purpose. If you are staying for an extended period, please do not use these spaces even if they are available. Thank you for your patience and understanding with our parking situation!
