Principal's Message

Happy Monday Bear Creek Cubs,

We hope everyone had a great weekend. Please note that Friday is a student holiday. Also note that Tuesday, April 6 is our first STAAR date (cue up Star Trek fans.) We will be administering fourth grade writing.

We are also SUPER EXCITED to reveal details for our first ever CAMP INVENTION which will be hosted right here at Bear Creek and taught by our teachers.

What Do If Your Child Is Not Feeling Well

If your child is ill with symptoms consistent (cough, sore throat, stomach issues, headaches, fatigue, congestion, etc ...) with Covid-19 contact Mr. Crissey and your child's teacher and then the following protocols must be followed:

Students May Return After

10 days have passed since symptoms started, and improvement in overall symptoms, and 24 hours have passed without fever and use of fever-reducing medication.


Provide doctor’s note to campus health room staff stating that symptoms are not COVID-19-related and student can return to school.


Provide a negative COVID-19 test.

As an FYI the same holds true for staff members.

To be clear the school does not make money from this venture but I have to say how EXCITED I am to offer Camp Invention to you. I hosted this camp for many years in Florida and I have to say it was one of the most engaging camps I have ever seen. Our dates are June 14 through June 18 and the teachers will all be Bear Creek teachers. Take a look at the flyers and let me know if you have questions.

Commitment Forms And Registration

As we prepare for the 2021 -2022 school year we need two tasks completed, both of which are required by the district.

1 – AISD registration. Currently we only have about 82% of students registered. Our staffing is based on this and we need to have 100% by the end of the week if at all possible. Please go to this link for detailed information.


2 – Bear Creek Commitment Form

We as a campus is also required to gain commitment from family for intent regarding the 2021-2022 school year. Please complete this form prior to the end of the week.

If you think you have done the task but you are not sure I can check.
