Have you joined the Briarcrest PTA for this school year? If not, now is the perfect time to do so! While membership is not required to attend this week's PTA meeting, membership does allow you to VOTE on issues brought to the board during a meeting, as well as amplify our school and our district's voice at the State level.
- Signing up for PTA Membership is quick and easy online. Join here!
- Want to become a member but are concerned about the cost? Not a problem! Many scholarships are available to cover the membership fees.
- Can't remember if you joined yet? You can log-in to MemberPlanet and check, or email us and we can check and let you know!
- Memberships need to be reactivated every year. If you were a member last year don't forget to reactivate your membership for 20-21!
Congratulations to all our Reflection Artists!
“Kindness is a gift everyone can afford to give." Take our Kindness Challenge and see how many kind things you can do.
Click for the English Bingo Board or here for the Spanish Bingo Board. How many rows, columns, or diagonals you are able to fill? It's ok to substitute with your own ideas too. Then share some of the kind things you've done on our padlet here. We want to be inspired by how awesome you are because "Kindness is contagious"!
After the challenge Mr. Dalasta will dress up as a bulldog to spread some kindness and he will eat a spicy pepper for every 10 students who get a bingo!

Briarcrest has 2 Directories!
The campus in Olympia is closed to the public for the 2021 legislative session, which means that WSPTA will not be able to host the annual Focus Day on the Capitol steps. However, this makes it possible to get involved from your own home. Sign up here for easy ways to take action each day.
To learn more about advocacy and the focus for each day check out this webpage.
Check out our family services page if your family could use a little help right now, or if you have a little extra and are able to share.
