Message from Assistant Principal Ryan Bell

 

Dear Jets Family,

 

It is with bittersweet emotions that I am writing to inform you that September 20th will be my last day at Brier Creek.  It has been an honor and pleasure to serve as the Assistant Principal these past 15 months. My departure is the result of my wife receiving a wonderful work opportunity in Charlotte.  I have sincerely enjoyed getting to know and work with the families and students in this wonderful community. I know you will continue to SOAR!

 

Respectfully and with gratitude,

Ryan Bell



Meal Benefits Expiring This Week

If your child is still using his/her 2018-2019 meal benefits, please know these will expire on Monday for T2 & T4 and on Tuesday for T3. After this date, you must apply for 2019-2020 Free & Reduced Lunch or pay full price for meals. Breakfast is $1.25 and Lunch is $2.75. You can apply online for Free & Reduced Price Lunch here, or submit the paper application mailed to you in early summer. Paper applications can also be obtained in the front office. 



Make Up Days for T1, T3, & T4

Please mark your calendars for two upcoming Saturdays, November 16 & December 7, for our make up days. In year-round school, when school is cancelled, we make it up on a Saturday. While the arrival time is the same, with the building opening at 8:45 and the tardy bell ringing at 9:15, there are a few things different about school on a Saturday. First, we dismiss at 12:45. Students spend their time working in core subjects and do not have recess or specials. Although we will serve breakfast and students may bring a snack, we do not serve lunch on Saturdays. Because there is no before- or after-care, students will walk or ride carpool, bus, or cab only. If your child usually leaves through Parks & Rec or daycare van, please make sure you let your child’s teacher know how he/she will be getting home that day. If you are dropping off or picking up in carpool, please be mindful we may have a higher-than-normal volume and people who are not as familiar with the routine. Please be patient in the carpool line and we will make sure all of our Jets get to and from school safely. 



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

 

*The Invest Campaign for Tracks 2 and 3 is kicking off this week - every dollar raised goes to fund the student experiences and teacher support!  The invest brochure will be sent home with your child this week.  Please return your Invest card by Friday, September 20th.  Everyone who returns their card will get a card for a free ice cream cone.  The grade with the highest percentage of returned cards will receive a popsicle celebration.  For more information, to print a brochure, or donate online visit: http://briercreekpta.org/invest/ .

 

*Come out to our PTA Board Meeting on Monday, September 9th at 6:00pm in the Media Center.  This is a great opportunity to learn more about what we have going on around BCES.

 

*Save the date for Walk/Bike to School Day on Wednesday, October 2nd.  You will receive more details on this fun event later this month.

 

*Save the date for Screen on the Green on Friday, October 4th.  This is our outdoor movie for families.  The students will be voting on the movie this week, and we will send more details out later this month.

 


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,

Kathy Livengood, Principal
