3rd-5th Grade Perot STEM Club

We are excited to partner with the Perot Museum to provide a STEM club opportunity for a small group of 3rd-5th graders this semester! You can read more about the club HERE, and if you’d like to apply, you and your child can fill out the google form application HERE. Because space is very limited, we will be doing a Lotto process for those who fill out the application by Friday, Jan. 21st. If you have any questions/concerns, you can email our Family Engagement Specialist, Sarah Burey at sarah.burey@gcisd.net.

MLK Day of Service

Campuses across GCISD are coming together this January to support local families through donations to GRACE. The entire community will participate in this endeavor by donating requested items from January 5-14 and during drive-thru events at GHS and CHHS on Monday, January 17 in honor of the MLK Day of Service.

Bear Creek Elementary will be collecting SALT AND PEPPER. We will have a box at the front if you’d like to drop off your donation at school.

Thank you!


Homework for math will be given on Monday and due Friday morning. They can pace themselves however works best for them.
