At Bear Creek, we believe that our school must serve and respect
students, staff, parents and community, who are all integral elements of the
culture of the school.
Pride and progress, in individuals, teams, programs, and
achievements will be hallmarks of Bear Creek. We will provide a bright, clean,
safe, and welcoming environment in which to learn and grow, and we will promote
an atmosphere of teamwork, tolerance, and cooperation.
Our students will be provided with the opportunity to learn,
succeed, and excel, in all areas of school life. They will have access to a
challenging and varied curriculum, sharply focused on literacy and numeracy, in
addition to a diverse range of co-curricular programs. They will be expected to
demonstrate respect for community, family, staff, peers, and themselves.
Staff will promote and pursue excellence in both our students and
ourselves, and enable students to develop the skills needed to meet
ever-changing, life-long challenges. We will encourage mutual respect,
understanding, and support among all members of the school community.
Parents of our students will be empowered to have meaningful and
convenient access to the progress of their children along the educational
journey, and will be partners in the communication network between themselves,
their children, and the school. They will work together with their children and
the staff to provide the best possible environment for student learning, and
share a deep mutual respect and trust between staff and themselves.
We will establish a partnership between the school and the
community that is both active and mutually beneficial.
We will participate in community-driven initiatives, and will be
involved in an ongoing exchange of energies and resources. We will protect and
nurture the school facilities and the surrounding environment, and make Bear
Creek a valued and integral part of the community.
