Bear Creek Annual Events


    ​Bear Creek hosts many fun and educational special events each year.  If you'd like to volunteer to help with an event, please visit our parent volunteer web site at HelpATSchools.

    Color Run

    Through this fun two lap, half mile cross country course on the Bear Creek grass field and surrounding neighborhoods, we become aware of and improve our fitness levels, maintain healthy lifestyles, learn how to set goals, encourage others, and feel great about our effort and achievement.  All students train and participate in this fun run.  Teachers, parents and friends of Bear Creek are welcome to attend, support the students and run the course.
    Fun & Fitness
    Each grade level participates in the spring in more than 25 activities on the Bear Creek field during their regularly scheduled PE class.
    Colorado Thinking Cap Quiz Bowl
    This is a statewide computer competition in which almost all 3rd - 5th graders participate.  They work in teams to answer questions in all areas of academics, sports, entertainment, and trivia.

    International Walk to School Day

    The majority of the Bear Creek students walk, scooter, and  skateboard to school each day, but on the first Wednesday of October and in March it is fun to be a part of the international celebration!

     Geography & Spelling Bee
    These activities are sponsored by our TAG program and open to all 4th & 5th graders.

    Bear Creek Carnival

    Thank you PTO for sponsoring a wonderful event for the Bear Creek Community to get together
    and have fun!  There are games, food trucks, face painting, a dunking machine and plenty of opportunities to laugh and get to know one another. Even Mr. Cruger even took a turn!  
    Martin Luther King Celebration

    The power of music and words unites the Bear Creek community in our annual Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration. Students celebrate each other’s differences and strive to carry on the prevailing message of equality and peace for all people.

    Each year Bear Creek Elementary students (and teachers!) get a chance to strut their stuff in the Lip Sync talent show.  For those of you who are new to the school, Lip Sync is our annual show where students get to perform a favorite song or act and have fun.  The students lip sync and dance to a short song of their choice.  The event is non-competitive and the expectation is for fun, not perfection.
