Bear Creek School Constructs LEGO Model of New Building

 Bear Creek’s New Upper School and Fine & Performing Arts Center


Redmond, WA – On March 26, Dan Parker, a certified LEGO® professional, worked together with more than 100 Bear Creek students in grades 5 and 6 to construct a LEGO® model of our new Upper School and Fine & Performing Arts Center. The model is as part of the school’s REACH UP Campaign to raise $10 million to finance the construction of its new building.

Mr. Parker is one of 13 certified LEGO® professionals in the entire world and lives in the Puget Sound area.  The Experience Music Project is currently hosting an exhibit, “Block by Block: Inventing Amazing Architecture,” featuring 10 famous skyscrapers constructed from LEGOs® by Dan and his team. The exhibit will remain at the EMP through April 20.

To date Bear Creek has raised nearly $7.4 million for construction of the new Upper School and Fine & Performing Arts Center. The school is planning to raise the rest of the needed funds this spring, so that groundbreaking can occur in June.  Read More >>
