B.E.A.R. Binders

What is a B.E.A.R. Binder?

BEAR is an acronym for Bring Everything Always Ready.

A BEAR Binder is a special binder that your child will bring

to and from school everyday this year.

The BEAR binder will help your child stay organized and

help you keep in touch with our classroom.
