Virtual Teacher Appreciation Week
Thank you to everyone that virtually loved on our teachers last week with notes, videos, pictures, and gifts! The PTA recognized how much we appreciate our teachers by delivering Awesome Teacher yard signs to their homes. Every teacher, administrator, and staff member also received a gift card from the PTA. Thank you all for loving our teachers so well!
Congratulations to one of our wonderful 5th grade teacher Mrs. Geesey on her retirement. Bear has been blessed to have her as teacher. Thank you for teaching so many of our students. You will be missed!
Congratulations to all of our 5th graders that are leaving Bear this year. We know Bear has set a solid foundation for your continued success.
We hope that everyone has a safe summer, and we look forward to seeing so many of you in August!
Always there has been an adventure just around the corner—and the world is still full of corners. –Roy Chapman Andrews
