Can you believe that it is already October? It doesn't seem possible that we have been in school over a month already! We have had or will be having some special events, and I wanted to take just a few minutes to tell you about them.
One Monday we welcomed a new student to The Bair's Den! Rochelle moved to E-town from Donegal, and we are very happy to have her in our class.
Yesterday afternoon band members, football players, cheerleaders and The Bear came to visit Bear Creek for a pep really. As you can see from the pictures we all had a great time cheering on the team and clapping along to the music. We were also very proud and excited because our very own Ian was chosen to be the 4th grade representative at the game tonight! Congratulations, Ian!!!

|Clapping and cheering - we totally beat 5th grade in the cheer off!|
The Bair's Den also had another excited winner today when Emma's name was randomly chosen as the Box Top winner for the month of September! Emma got a coupon to buy some books at the book fair! Congratulations, Emma!
Tonight (10/5) - Tonight is Bear Creek Night at the E-town Bears football game, and it is also Homecoming. On Tuesday your child received a blue coupon for free admission to the football game so we hope that you will be able to come out and join us as we cheer on the football team.
10/8 - As Lydia said today, "Thank you, Christopher Columbus!" Your child does not have school on Monday, October 8 due to the celebration of Columbus Day. School will be back in full swing on Tuesday, and it will be Day 5.
10/9 - 10/11 - The Book Fair will be continuing here at Bear Creek. We will be shopping during our library class on Thursday, October 11 at 11:25 am. Feel free to come in and shop with your child. If that time doesn't work for you, there will also be another family night from 6:00 - 8:30 on Thursday, October 11, so you can come in and get some books with your child.
One last thank you to everybody who sent in change for the Penny Wars. Bear Creek raised an amazing $918 for the capital campaign! 4th grade made a respectable showing and came in second place behind 5th grade.
It's been a great start to the school year, and I'm looking forward to another amazing month in October!
