    Good evening Briarcliff families, this is Mrs. Raiford with your weekend announcements. The Hurricanes are coming to Briarcliff in January. Our students have been participating in Readvolution through the Carolina Hurricanes along with all other elementary children in the district.

    Thus far, we have logged just under 1,000 books. Our goal is to read over 2,000 books by January 10th. Please read with your children at night and help them log their books. In the classroom, teachers will give the students hockey pucks to display in the main hallway.  

    We want to be able to show the Hurricanes that Briarcliff students love to read.
