Fall 2019 Parents are Connected Night is THIS WEDNESDAY 

We hope you will join us this Wednesday from 5:30-7:00 for our Fall 2019 Parents are Connected Night! We will have 3 rotations (5:30-5:55, 6:00-6:25, and 6:30-6:55) where you can learn more about what your child is up to at Brier Creek this year and how you can support him/her at home. Please view the schedule here to decide which sessions you would like to attend. Please note, the grade-level classroom Open House sessions are each only offered at one time so that teachers can also present about topics of interest for parents. The Open House sessions are:

  • Kindergarten & 1st Grade: 5:30-5:55
  • 2nd & 3rd Grades: 6:00-6:25
  • 4th & 5th Grades: 6:30-6:55

We hope you will also stay for our FIRST PTA GENERAL MEETING of the school year, which will begin at 7:00 in the Cafeteria. 



PTA News and Updates- from your PTA President, Brittany Wells

  • The PTA will host a Note in the Pocket clothing drive August 12-23.  We will be collecting new and gently used clothing for children in need in Wake County.  Please drop off clothing in the box located outside the Media Center.
  • We will have our first PTA General Meeting on Wednesday, August 14th at 7pm in the cafeteria.  This will take place after PAC night.  We will be voting on our approved budget for the year.  We will have a raffle for PTA members who come to get scholastic book fair dollars to use at the upcoming book fair, and popcorn for all!
  • The Track 4 membership contest will conclude August 16th.  Help your child's class win a pizza or popcorn party by having the highest percentage of memberships.  All tracks can still join by returning the form that was sent home in your child's folder, or by signing up using this link.   https://briercreek.memberhub.store/ 
  • Tracks 1 and 4 will kick off our Invest Campaign August 19-30.  This is one of two fundraisers the PTA will do this year.  Look for information coming home soon with details in your child's purple folder.
  • Join our BCES students in showing school spirit by pre-ordering your school shirt today!  For our second year, we are taking pre-orders so that parents, guardians, and BCES community members can have the same shirts our students and staff will be given.  We have been told by staff that having parents in shirts that match theirs and students makes it easier for chaperones to be identified not just by the staff on the field trip but more importantly ALL students on the field trip.  Use this link to pre-order shirts: https://briercreek.memberhub.store/ .
  • Save the Date for our first family night of the year at McDonald's in Brier Creek on Tuesday, August 27th from 5pm-8pm.  Come let the BCES teachers and staff serve you food, and enjoy a fun night with other BCES families.  

 

August Flight Forecast

The August Flight Forecast was sent home with tracked-in students on Friday, August 2. T3 students will receive theirs when they return from trackout. The Flight Forecast contains important information for our school community. The August Flight Forecast can also be accessed online here

 

 


Please look for the weekly email from your child’s teacher and check your child’s grade-level website for additional information. Grade-level websites can be found here. Please reach out to your child’s teachers with any questions. 

 

My Jets Best,
