HELP US with... 

The​​ Briarcliff Fundraising Challenge!  


We have raised just over $9,500. Our goal is $10,000. Please help the students earn a dance party. This is our one-time fundraiser for the whole school. Please reach out to family, friends, or any company that may be willing to help. This is a great time to ask the company you work for because they will be looking for tax deductions. Please click here to donate any time before November 22!  


NO Parking or Drop Off on Pond Street


If you are parking on Pond St and dropping off or picking your student I am asking you to PLEASE STOP. This is dangerous and not a carpool location. I am very concerned that it would only take one driver not paying attention to hit you or your student. This has happened at other Wake County Campuses. PLEASE use carpool for the safety of you, your student/s, and others.

Kindergarten Registration

It is hard to believe but we are already thinking about next year. It is time to register your Kindergartner for school. If they are turning 5 on or before August 31st please go ahead and get them registered. This helps us prepare for next year. We have information on our website or you can use this link


From Mrs. Wooten

Counseling lessons are a huge part of Briarcliff's Comprehensive School Counseling Program. Counseling lessons allow Ms. Wooten, the school counselor, to provide lessons that often focus on skill-building for all students. So far this year, all students have participated in the welcome back unit (when to see the counselor and why) and a bullying prevention unit. 


The next three lessons for grades 3-5th grade students will cover our social-emotional learning unit. 


1st and 2nd grade students will also participate in lessons focused on identifying emotions, understanding what coping skills are and when to use them. 


Ms. Wooten visits Kindergarten classrooms on a weekly basis to provide the Second Step Curriculum. This curriculum targets social-emotional skills for our younger learners. Ask your students about Puppy and Snail. Can they tell you the rules for listening?

We have read 7,589 books.  I am so proud of our Bulldogs. We have set  a new goal of 10,000 books by December 6th! We will continue to work to read 416,000 minutes. Students who achieve the goal of reading 20 minutes per day throughout the time frame (for a total of 800 minutes) will receive TWO complimentary ticket vouchers to a Hurricanes home game.  Reading every night is one of the most important things you can do to support your child as a learner. 

Upon reading a certain number of books, school-level prizes will include the following:

  • 9,000 A movie and PJ day
  • 416,000 minutes Recess for an hour a day for a week
