5th Grade at Bear Creek Elementary

Week 27 - April 5th - April 9th

Dear Families,

We are getting more requests for in person learning. If you are planning on having your child join us in the building, please make sure you email Mr. Crissey. He asks that you wait 5 days to come in after communicating with him. If your child is coming into the building soon, they will need the following:


mask

water bottle

snack

lunch (or order from the cafeteria)

pencil pouch/bag (markers, crayons, pencils, etc.)

content area journals

device (preferably and AISD device so it will connect to our wifi)

charger

headphones

book

dismissal plan (car rider, walker/biker, bus rider)


Thank you for getting the science conference projects to the building safely. They look amazing! I am working on a way to organize all projects so they can be shared out.


Sincerely,

Ms. Harmon and Mr. Linnell
