Celebrating Community at a Distance - March 2020

  • Community Relations
Karen Firminger, Community Relations Manager

In times like these, it is grounding to know we are united through our shared faith and membership in our Bear Creek school community. I hope you will join me in celebrating Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week and Grizzly Spirit Dress Day to bring us together next week.

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week

While we are always grateful to our faculty and staff, next week, March 30 – April 3, is set aside to intentionally love on them, albeit from afar. Your PTF still plans to bless our teachers and staff after we return to campus, but we can show our appreciation now!

Upper School Convocation

You and your child(ren) can write notes for a teacher or staff member and send them via email, or students may post their appreciation in their class Teams. Maybe your young ones would like to draw a picture; you can take a photo and send it to your child’s teacher. Your child might even have fun saying, “Thank you!” in a video. Let your imagination and heart guide you!

We would like to share the love with the whole community, so please upload videos (MP4, 30 seconds) and photos of students with their notes or pictures to the Teacher and Staff Appreciation album on Vidigami. Alternately, you can send longer videos directly to social@tbcs.org.

Middle School Faculty

Many of you have already been showing your support through words and prayers, uplifting our faculty and administration tremendously during this difficult time. Kind words from you and your child are meaningful gifts!

Grizzly Spirit Day

Let’s show our school spirit on Friday, April 3. Pull out your Grizzly gear, beads, and even crazy hair if you like. Parents, faculty, and staff are invited to join in the fun too!

Grizzly Spirit

Take a moment to share your photos on social media and tag The Bear Creek School, also upload your photos and videos to the Grizzly Spirit Day album on Vidigami for everyone to enjoy.

Grizzly Gear!

Thank You

Thank you for your support as we strive to unite our community in an intentional yet socially distant way. It is good to be reminded that we belong to a school community that remains constant in its dedication to our mission, despite our distance, while thriving and growing in wisdom, compassion, and courage.

Grateful to be a Grizzly,
