Book Character Day!

Dear Parents and Guardians,


Bear Creek Elementary is excited to announce that we will be having a Book Character Dress Up day on Friday, October 28, 2022. On that day, each student should come to school dressed up as a character from a favorite book. Please NO SCARY, VIOLENT, or GROSS costumes. Also, please no masks or face paint. We want this day to be fun and filled with learning about different books.

These costumes do not have to be elaborate or expensive. A simple homemade costume is perfectly fine. Please have Your child bring a copy of the book to class that day if they have it.

We are excited to see the creativity of our students. This day is always so much fun! If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher.

Thank you!


Bear Creek

Arrival

  • Front doors will open at 7:25 a.m. and students will walk directly to their classroom unless they are eating breakfast. There will be teachers and administrators who will help direct your child to the Pre-K hall.

  • It is important to be on time as learning begins at 7:40 a.m

If you receive a phone call at the end of the day from the school, it is more than likely Ms. Adams or Mrs. Taylor calling for the positive phone call of the day! We are working so hard on rewarding good behavior, so we pick one kid each day to call home and tell you about the great things they did!

Dismissal

  • School gets out at 3:00 at the bus loop. If you are not here by 3:20 you will need to go to the office to pick up your child.


  • Please have your blue dismissal sign ready when you pick up your child whether you come in a car (must stay in your car) or walk up.


  • Teachers MUST call your child’s name before they may leave.

    • send a note to school with your child.


  • If you have notified the teacher that a different person will be picking up, please be sure that person has your child’s dismissal sign. This is their ticket for picking up your child.

Shoes & Clothes
