    Previous Community Open House Information
    Lewis-Palmer School District, RTA Architects, and Western Demographics hosted community open houses on February 13 and March 14 in order to provide opportunities for the community to hear demographic growth data about the Tri-Lakes area and its impact on Lewis-Palmer School District.

    This past spring, Lewis-Palmer School District contracted with RTA Architects to provide long-range facilities planning and consultation services in light of the significant growth in the Tri-Lakes area. RTA recently completed a physical assessment of LPSD buildings and a demographic study. These open houses provided the opportunity for the public to hear these initial findings and provide feedback.

    This is the PowerPoint presentation shared at both community open houses.

    More information regarding the February 13 presentation is available here.

  • Educator Effectiveness Metrics 
    On February 6 for the first time, the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) will release a limited number of Educator Effectiveness Metrics that reflect teacher and principal ratings from the 2014-2015 school year. The department will report on only four metrics for teachers and four for principals. The publicly reported metrics will only show how teachers and principals are doing as a group at the school, district, and state level. Once published, the release will be available on CDE’s news release webpage, where you can also link to SchoolView to view state-, district-and school- level Educator Effectiveness Metrics data. Please note: the CDE's reporting of LPSD "not rated" data is incorrect. CDE is addressing this issue.

    For a more detailed look into the process and the system, please look at the information on this website.

  • flag

    Bear Creek Elementary is honored to partner with our local VFW Post 7829 and be a collection site for American Flags that need to be retired. Please check your closets and talk with your neighbors to identify old, tattered American Flags/State Flags that need to be replaced. The collection runs from President's Day through Flag Day on June 14, and all community members and businesses are welcome to bring in their old flags. Tractor Supply Co. is offering a 10% discount on new flags for those that contribute. Together we can promote and model good citizenship for our children.

    Before & After School Care
    Children absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe time well spent in a fun, safe and supportive environment before and after school is a primary building block for quality of life and future success of children. Children feel connected at the Y where they can make friends and learn how to be their best with the Y’s values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We promote positive self-esteem, life skills, teamwork, leadership, creativity, and educational support.
