WBCS, "The Station by Kids for Kids" is Briarcrest's weekly in-house video production featuring the latest elementary school news brought to eager listeners by 5th Grade co-anchors. The program includes the pledges led by various classes, the morning announcements, and the weekly Brag Board. In addition to the AR Wall of Fame and photographs of classroom and schoo-wide events, WBCS delights students with the "Minute for Manners" segment, which provides timely answers to manners questions. WBCS also features "The Book Nook," where children review and rate books available for check-out in the elementary library.
Begun during the 2006-07 school year, WBCS is in its 7th season of keeping students informed and entertained, reminding them each week as the broadcast signs off that "It's always GREAT to be a Saint!"

Please remember to notify your child's teacher AND the school office (765-4613) if they will be absent or late to school. It is very important that your child be at school on time; however, we do realize that doctor and dentist appointments often cause them to check in late. Thank you for stressing to your child the importance of being at school and on time.
