Hour of Code - Computer Programming

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works. 
But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Fewer than half of all schools teach computer science.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 5-9). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code - including our 4th and 5th graders who participate in our Computer Coding Club.
Our Hour of Code is making a statement that Brush Creek Elementary School is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills to all students in Kindergarten through Fifth Grade.

Holiday Food Drive

Our Brush Creek Elementary 10th Annual Holiday Food Drive coordinated by Third Grade has started!  Last year our school collected enough food to package almost 200 Holiday Meals which were delivered to 200 families in each of our Madison County Schools.  We are asking each grade level to bring a specific item for the food drive beginning November 9th-December 7th.  Our third graders will package the foods, along with a ham provided by Mars Hill Baptist Church, and the meals will be delivered to families in our schools in time for the holidays.  Students can bring items into their classrooms.  See each grade level’s assigned items below:
           Kindergarten – boxes of instant chocolate pudding
           First Grade – bags or boxes of biscuit mix or muffin mix
           Second Grade – boxes of Macaroni and Cheese dinners (slender boxes)
           Third Grade – canned yams or canned sweet potatoes
           Fourth Grade – canned fruits – peaches, mixed fruit, pears, etc.
           Fifth Grade – canned green beans and canned corn

BEARS in action!!!

Fourth and Fifth Grade students at Brush Creek Elementary are learning to play ukuleles! 

Thanks to the hard work of our art teacher, Mrs. Sara Sagar, and a very generous donation from The Board of Directors of PIKOhana, an organization with the mission of sharing and celebrating the cultures of the Pacific Islands, Brush Creek is now home to 25 ukuleles!  

As part of our fine arts and physical education program at Brush Creek, students will study the cultures of the Pacific Islands through stories, visual arts, dance, and music.  Students are learning how to tune the instruments and are learning the first two chords during music class.  During PE class, students are learning the basic movements of traditional Pacific Island dances.  A special arts showcase event later in the year will feature the work of our students in a Hawaiian Luau fashion with instrumental ukulele performances and dance.

5th Graders Design the Cover of our School Yearbook!

Fifth Graders at Brush Creek have been busy creating original, hand drawn designs for the Front Cover of this year’s Brush Creek Elementary Yearbook!  There were fourteen fantastic designs to choose from and the designs were displayed in the school's lobby.  Each classroom previewed the designs and all students voted by secret ballot for their favorite design.  The favorite design was created by Jake Allen and his design will be featured on the front cover of the school yearbook.  The other thirteen designs will be featured on the back cover of the school yearbook as smaller images.  Congratulations to Jake Allen (front cover design winner), Preslea Harwood, Halie Ball, Taylor Conner, Troy Tipton, Kaleah Goodman, Avary Church, Austin Reese, Adria Moore, Katlyn Lewis, Shelby Reece, and Joshua Treadway.  (Not Pictured: Yari Regalado and McKenzie Price)

  Brush Creek Elementary - NEW ADDITION Building Project  

Brush Creek Elementary is excited to announce that our NEW ADDITION is underway!  As part of the building project, Brush Creek Elementary will receive a new Media Center and 4 additional classrooms! Two of the classroom spaces within the new addition will include an acoustically suitable music room that will benefit students’ aural skills (ability to hear and improve tones) and an art room fully equipped with a kiln room for pottery.  We will also have a new computer lab area and classroom space within the new addition. 

We would like to thank our Madison County Commissioners, the Madison County School Board, and Dr. Wilcox for their partnership in funding this much needed building project at our school. Funding from this project will also provide building improvements at each of the schools in Madison County, including a new facility for the Madison Early College High School.

School Arrival and Departure
Each school day will begin at 8:00 am.  Students will be allowed to enter the building through the front door or through the bus lot door at 7:20 am.  All students must report to either the cafeteria for breakfast or the multi-purpose room until 7:45 am, at which time, students will be allowed to enter the hallways to go to their classrooms.  During the first week of school, we allow you to walk your child into the building.  Beginning on Monday, August 29, as part of our School Safety Plan, we ask that you drop your child off in the car line and not walk students into the building.  We will have staff on duty to assist children to classrooms.  From 8:00 am—3:00 pm, all entrance doors will be locked and visitors must be visually identified and buzzed in through the front door only.  We require that all non-students entering the building, at any time, must report to the front office to sign in and receive a visitor badge. We appreciate your support of our security and safety practices.  The safety of your child at BCES is our top priority.
You will provide your child’s teacher with departure instructions.  All bus riders will be escorted to the bus lot by their teacher.  All car riders will be provided with (3) Car-Rider name cards.  One of those cards must be displayed in the front window of the pick up vehicle in order for a child to be released.  Additional cards are available through the front office.  All car riders will be held in the cafeteria until their pick up vehicle arrives.  Students must be picked up at one of the 5 pick up points marked by a cone at the front entrance.  Students will not be allowed to enter the parking lot.  If a car rider card is not visible, the parent must park in a parking space, enter the school and sign the student(s) out in the front office.  Car riders will be dismissed at 3:05 pm.
