Bear Creek is a vibrant school where creative staff and
engaged students learn and play together with the support of parents
and community. Our environment is one in which academic achievement is
expected, all students are valued and diversity is embraced. Our
collective vision and shared goals unite us to work cooperatively and
fuel our passion for providing the best possible learning experience for
Spotlights – This choir is open to fourth and fifth graders who have an interest in developing vocal skills. The choir rehearses mornings before school and performs two programs during the year at school and in the community. Bear Creek had more than 75 students participate in Spotlights throughout this past year.Before and After-School Clubs and Activities – A variety of clubs are offered each year based on interest. Last year some of the opportunities that were available to students were student council, chess club, foreign languages, homework club, jump rope group, Landsharks running group, drumming club, Lego Robotics club, nature club, and intramural sports.Science Presentations – A few years ago Bear Creek modified its annual Science Fair in order to match each grade level’s developmental abilities and thus maximize learning opportunities for students. This past year every student at every grade level participated in science exploration and communication of their newly learned science information. The culmination of the Bear Creek Science Presentation experience is a data rich, individually presented science project by each fifth grade student. Enrichment Activities – Many enrichment activities are offered every year. Some of the exciting opportunities are the National Geographic Geography Bee, Spelling Bee and CU Science Explorers.
Healthy Living Focus – The Bear Creek community believes strongly in teaching students about smart choices regarding personal, community and global health. Activities include a Safe Routes to School program to encourage car-free commuting to school, the Garden to the Table project which produces food for our Harvest Bar lunches, and our Green Star Schools goal of moving toward zero waste production.
