September 2018 Message from the President:

Welcome!

Welcome back to school, families! My name is Mimi Vidal, and this is my first year as PTA president. I am SUPER excited to start this journey with you all to enhance your child’s school experience and partner with our administration and teachers to help them provide the best education possible.

Fundraisers

If you’re new to Bear Creek Elementary, you will soon learn that our PTA operates as a community of parents who are dedicated your children. We have two major fundraisers happening in the next few months. The first is Boosterthon’s Fun Run, which will be an obstacle course this year. The next one is our famous Fall Festival in November. Please make plans to participate in these two fun events that not only raise money for school projects but are also tons of fun for the kids!

Programs

The PTA brings great programs to the school throughout the year. We’re excited to invite Storybook Theatre of Texas to our school in September. This program will focus on the effects of bullying in a fun and engaging performance with costumes and props. When choosing programs for our school, we want to entertain the kids as well as teach them valuable lessons.

Social Events

During the year, the PTA will give you opportunites to get to know other families and enjoy our community atmosphere with our Ice Cream Social, Trunk-or-Treat, Cookies with Santa, and much more!

Join & Connect

If you haven’t already joined the PTA, please do so! It’s $8.50 to be a member for the year. We would love for you to join our team of volunteers,so if you’re interested, please let you child’s teacher know or visit our Facebook pages (BCE PTA and Dad’s Club). You can also sign up for email reminders here. We strive to make our PTA inclusive and welcoming. Let us know how we’re doing!

I’m looking forward to meeting as many parents as I can this year. Feel free to contact me anytime!

Going for a great school year,

Mimi Vidal
