As I take a breath and look towards spring, I’m so grateful to be in a community that is guided by such a noble mission and grounded in strong core values. I see how our prayerfulness enriches all our efforts. The number of applicants and returning students to The Bear Creek School this year is the highest ever. More than half of our applicants are here because they know a Bear Creek family. Thank you for your part in making our school a great place for our kids.
At Bear Creek, we are fortunate to have an abundance of resources to help us navigate the parenting journey. I hope you will join me at "Parenting Under Pressure," a special presentation on Tuesday, April 2 with Dr. Rob McKenna. Below I summarized some additional resources that you might find helpful.
