Ms. Benton


I want to give a shout out to Ms. Benton. She is an amazing Assistant Principal. She works so hard to make sure that all staff and students have the support they need. She is passionate about serving each student every day.  Have your student make her a card to post on Twitter.


Thank you Ms. Benton from All of your Bulldogs!!!!

Dr. Sallie Wooten


Congratulations to our very own counselor, Dr. Sallie Wooten. Dr. Wooten defended her dissertation last week (virtually may I add) and she now has the official title of “Dr. Wooten”! We are so proud of you and all of your accomplishments and proud to have you as a Briarcliff Bulldog.

Blossoming Bulldogs SPRING into READING!!!


Our reading challenge for April is to read 15-20 minutes EVERYDAY. There is time built into the Remote Learning Schedule for this. If we hit 100,000 minutes we will have a Virtual Dance Party with all of the teachers. Please feel free to print this form to keep track. At the end of the month we will have you fill out the same form you did above for March. When your kids are reading please post pictures on twitter @BriarcliffES @MrsLoriNelson @drtsexton @WesternArea #BulldogsRead

BES Remote Learning Schedule

Here is a copy of the schedule for Briarcliff ES students. We understand that some families may need to adjust their times based on their schedules. We are asking that every student participate in the activities that will be provided in their teacher’s Google Classroom. I will send out an email on Saturday with more details about next week.

Physical Activity


Below the link consists of 2 pages - the first page is geared toward K-2 students, the second page toward 3-5.  At the bottom of each page, there is a link to a survey that students may fill out to indicate how many activities they completed during the week.  They may begin again during the following weeks and repeat some of the videos they participated in during prior weeks if they wish.
