Important for VA Families: 2021 Virtual Academy EOG Information! <Action Needed>
This is ONLY for VIRTUAL ACADEMY families. If your child is in person you do not need to do anything. Please read the letter linked below. It provides important information about EOG's for your Virtual Academy 3rd-5th grader(s) and requires you to complete a required survey for each child. The survey is in English and Spanish. We currently have had 35% of families respond. Thank you for taking the time to read and complete this by April 28th.

Invest: A love of reading is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children. Literacy is positively correlated to nearly every quality-of-life indicator imaginable – from improved job prospects to increased longevity. The PTA helps promote literacy and a love of reading in our children by purchasing extra books for the school library. Want to help? Click here and donate today.
Nominations: While the pandemic has meant the work of the PTA has been quieter this past school year, it has been ongoing and important. We are energized for the upcoming year. Can you jump in to help as part of the 2021-22 PTA Board? Please click here to learn more and contact your Nominating Committee Chair, Ashleigh Hales (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
PTA Social Directory:
Looking for a way to connect with other BCES families? The PTA is starting a social directory that families can choose to join and share their contact information. If you wish to participate, visit briercreek.memberhub.store/appreciationandconnection.
