The days are getting hotter, and the sun is shining brighter, so please have your child use sunscreen to protect themselves during these activities. If you don’t want your child to participate in the outdoor events such as Mudstock, Rocket Day, or any of the other “End of the Year” outdoor activities, please notify the office and alternate arrangements can be made.
To the Parents and students,
It is with great pride that I welcome you to Bear River School. Our site is home to over 580 4th - 8th grade students. At all hours of the day and night, the school is alive with the sound of people working, learning, playing, laughing and enjoying all kinds of educational activities.
Bear River School hosts an exceptional staff that creates a safe, caring environment and works to ensure the academic success of every child. We are proud of the accomplishments made by our students, and much of their success has come from high expectations paired with effective instructional skills and layers of intervention. In addition, we believe that education is a partnership that includes you, your children, and our staff. We provide outstanding teachers, a caring and supportive staff, and a safe, fun, and rigorous learning environment for your child(ren). As our partners, we need you to instill in your child(ren) the value of education. Some of the best ways to do this are making sure your child(ren) arrive(s) each day on time and ready to learn, helping them with homework, and talking with them about ideas and topics that they're studying in school.
Bear River is your school. I want you to feel that you are a welcome and an integral part of this learning community. Get involved! Time invested with your child(ren) at home and at school pays off in huge dividends. The more you participate, the more you and your child(ren) will benefit from school. I strongly encourage you to volunteer as a classroom tutor, library, or computer lab aide, and chaperone on field trips. Please contact your classroom teacher or call the school for more information on ways that you can get involved.
If there is something going on that you feel may impact your child's success or focus at school, please communicate with your child's teacher, myself, or Mr. Drury. We are all here to support you and your student in the pursuit of excellence. As always, we appreciate your support and look forward to working with your family this year to meet your child(ren)'s needs. Here's to a new year of learning and growing together!
