Publication Information

The Bear Facts is a weekly newsletter highlighting accomplishments of Bear Creek students, upcoming events, and special announcements about the happenings at school.

The newsletter is published in a completely online format consisting of searchable news and announcements in the left column and calendar events for the next two weeks in the right column. The news and announcements will be categorized as follows:

  • All School News
  • Upper School News
  • Middle School News
  • Early Middle School News
  • Lower School News
  • Preschool News
  • Grizzlies Athletics

The Bear Facts is distributed via email each Friday afternoon to all parents of students in all divisions; faculty and staff; and the Board of Trustees. The Bear Facts is distributed to the email addresses provided on the Household Profile (see MyBC/Parents). 

If there is no school on Friday, The Bear Facts will be published on previous school day. The Bear Facts is not published on weeks when there are two or fewer school days (e.g. Thanksgiving week).
