Barton Creek Elementary

Staff/Student Football Game


Principal Tiffany Phelps

As I close out day four of my new "Elementary Principal Life", I can't help but giggle at some of the things that I've heard and seen. We had multiple visits from several of our Central Office staff. It was clear that the students were confused who all these people were dressed in business suits. A group of students came up to me and asked, "Is that the President?" (Giggle #1) 

Later that day, Eanes ISD's Associate Superintendent, Todd Washburn, was in the cafeteria and was asked by a kindergartner to help with putting a straw into his juice box.  To say Mr. Washburn struggled is an understatement.  Deputy Superintendent, Dr. Jeff Arnett, had to show him how it's done.  (Giggle #2)  

BCE Juice Box Challenge


Walking to the buses, I asked a first grade student how his day was. He replied, "It was great! We learned all about the apocalypse!" It took me a minute, but I realized he was referring to the ECLIPSE. (Giggle #3)


I'm overjoyed by how loving and friendly all of the students are at BCE. The high fives and hugs will never get old. The best was when Leah asked me to take a "selfie" with her and then told me, "You can go ahead and post that on your Facebook page." (Giggle #4)


There's never a dull moment here at Barton Creek Elementary. 


Approval will lower District's total tax rate by 3.25 cents and increase amount of local tax revenue that stays in the community

We are excited to officially kick off the program this year, which will streamline services including transportation and cafeteria meal transactions as well as coordinate campus dismissal preferences electronically with parents of elementary students.


Unusual Library Reading Spot Contest

Participants will submit a picture taken while they are reading in an unusual place or in a special pose. Students might be found reading in a famous landmark, an iconic Austin site, or in their own backyard. All photos will be posted on a library bulletin board throughout the 2017-2018 school year. Five entries will be chosen to be printed on the front of a school-wide bookmark.


When: NOW until Friday, September 29th
