We kick off the school year with an exciting fundraising program, the Boosterthon Fun Run. The goal of the Boosterthon Fun Run is to raise funds while teaching our children about the importance of fitness, leadership, and character. The kick off pep rally begins on August 23rd and concludes with the K4-3rd grade Fun Run and 4th -5th grade Color Run event on September 1st.
Another exciting fundraising event is our Fall Carnival, “ Spike’s Spooktacular” being held at BCES on October 18th from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Come out and enjoy a great family night of fun rides, games, and good food!
From December 6-15th, look for the Brushy Creek Holiday Boutique. We have a great selection of affordable gifts for the children to purchase for their family and friends for the holidays. Seeing how much love and care they put into choosing gifts gets everyone into the holiday spirit!
Once a month the PTA hosts spirit nights at local restaurants or entertainment venues to help raise funds for Brushy Creek. Each of these establishments donates a percentage of the proceeds back to our school. It is a great, fun way for families to help support the PTA and Brushy Creek throughout the year.

Labels for Education
We are very excited that our school is participating in the 'Tyson Project A+ Program"! Students, teachers, parents, grandparents, family and friends can help collect labels from Tyson product boxes and bags. Tyson will send 24 cents per label!
Boxtops for Education is another program that everyone can help with! Each label earns our schools $0.10. Our school consistently earns top dollar so send your labels in!
What do we do with all the money we raise? It all goes to help your children learn. Some of the things we've purchased recently include playground equipment, library books, Chromebooks and Promethean Boards. We also have a PTA grant program, which our teachers have used to purchase such "extras" as cursive writing workbooks, books for classroom libraries, math flashcards and games, iPads and computer "mice" for the laptop lab. The PTA also pays for the software and software licenses for both computer labs, supplies for the science lab, and much, much more! Thank you for helping to continue making Brushy Creek a GREAT place for learning!
