We are extremely grateful that our children attend one of Colorado’s best public elementary schools, and we are fortunate that Boulder County voters support our schools to a great degree when compared to other districts. Despite this, our school experiences a shortfall between what we need to keep Bear Creek exceptional and what we receive in public funding.

The PTO helps bridge this gap in two key ways:

    • Tools for Learning Challenge Campaign

    • King Soopers Community Rewards Program

Funds are primarily used for:

    • Additional paraeducator support beyond what the district provides

    • Teacher stipends to enhance curricular materials and the educational experience

    • Community building events for our school population

    • Ongoing acts of teacher appreciation

Tools for Learning Challenge

Our 2021-22 Tools for Learning Challenge Campaign runs from August 25 - September 23 and we have a fundraising goal of $85,000 and a participation goal of 80% of families making a gift of any amount.

To meet our fundraising goal, we request a minimum donation of $275 per enrolled student. (This equates to a gift of $1.60 for each day your child is in school this year.) To meet our participation goal, we are simply asking that you participate at any amount meaningful to you! This is our one and only financial ask we make of families; as long as we meet our goal, there will be NO other fundraising asks of any kind (no silent auctions, kids selling items, etc.). Gifts are tax-deductible.

Debit/Credit - Visit our Bear Creek PTO Square Store

Cash/Check - Donation cards are mailed in late August and may be returned with a donation by September 23. Kindly return cash or check donations in the TLC drop box located in the school office. Make checks payable to “Bear Creek PTO”
