It was featured in last year's book and hopefully it becomes a Bear Creek tradition that highlights the amazing cultures and languages at Bear Creek!

Bear Creek Cub Run
We are a few weeks away from this year’s main fundraiser, the Bear Creek Cub Run! It’s a two-week program that kicks off on March 3rd. Families will gather pledges in preparation for the main event on March 11th. Our goal this year is to raise $55,000 for teacher support and campus improvement, and we need your help! We’ve asked the experts at Booster to power our fundraiser to make it easier, more profitable, and more fun.
Not only are we raising funds for Bear Creek Elementary, our students are also learning how to live with character through Booster's fun character theme: Sports City WorldWide - a fitness theme about activating character and an active lifestyle! You can check out all of this year's character videos at MYBOOSTER.COM.
Pledging opens on February 17th, so get a head start and log on to MYBOOSTER.COM to get started!
As some of you are aware we no longer have a guidance counselor here on campus. While I can arrange for coverage for significant events this is going to leave a hole for some families. Please reach out to me with your concerns and let's problem solve our way through it.
