Congratulations Elwyn!
Congratulations to our very own K5 student Elwyn on his Reflection WIN! His entry was in the photography category.  He won First place for the school and went all the way to the STATE competition to win one of the two Honorable Mention awards.  There were over 4,000 entries, and Elwyn was one of the youngest contestants! We are SO proud of you Elwyn!/bcreek/Upload/uploads/Elwyn and Reflections Award.jpg

Beta Club
Brushy Creek's National Junior Beta Club has partnered with the Ronald McDonald House Charities and is collecting pop tabs off of cans. These pop tabs can be recycled by the Ronald McDonald House Charity for money that in turn helps fully fund their organization. Your child viewed a Powerpoint today that helped them learn all about this wonderful organization. Please save the pop tabs off of your soda and soup cans and send them to school. The Beta Club will collect and weigh them before turning them over to the Ronald McDonald House. Our school wide goal is to collect 250,000 (250 pounds!!) by the end of May. We know that our wonderful students and parents will help us accomplish this goal! To learn more about this organization please visit
