Welcome Back!

Dear Creeker Families,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at BCECC!

It was awesome seeing so many of you at our Meet the Teacher Night! Our teachers have been busy getting their rooms ready and learning lots to prepare for a great year.

We hope you had a restful and enjoyable summer break. We are thrilled to have you and your little ones begin another exciting year of learning and growing. As we start the new year together, we want to make sure you feel at home and ensure a smooth transition back into the school routine. We want to provide you with some important information and upcoming events to help you and your child prepare for a successful return to school.

We encourage you to visit our school website,, throughout the year to stay informed regarding activities and available resources.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to reach out to the office. We are looking forward to a great year!
