A Message from the Helm

Greetings, Beacon Families,

It’s time for the summer and family vacations! During the summer, we love receiving postcards from families to hear about their travels.  Please continue to send those to us!  We read each one, share about where you went with students on Airwaves in August, and finally display them on the principal’s bulletin board.  They can be the fancy postcards that you buy in a store OR they can be handmade postcards OR friendly letters.  Anything is great that lets us know how you’re doing and where you’ve been!  Local travel to area attractions is appropriate, too. We’re looking forward to hearing about your summer adventures!

I’d also like to take a moment to send a special Thank You to our retiring Beacon, Mrs. Betty Driver.  Betty has served as the “Face of Bookman” for so many years.  We appreciate all that she has done for our school and we are truly going to miss her warm smile, her kind manner, and her positive attitude in the front office.  I hope you’ll find the opportunity to say farewell to Mrs. Driver and tell her how much she has meant to you as well.

Have a safe, fun-filled summer!

Carol O’Connor, Assistant Principal

Congratulations 5th Grade Graduates! We will miss you here at Bookman, but we know that you will do wonderful things in middle school! Remember to always use your LIFESKILLS and Lifelong Guidelines and you will go far!

Proof of Residence

We are now accepting updates for returning students and proof of residence for the 2016-2017 school year.  All current students must complete the returning student update in Parent Portal  for next year's enrollment and  turn in one current proof of residence (utility bill) if the address is the same as last year. Please contact Michele Tieben at 699-1724 if you need any assistance, or you have recently moved to a new address.

If you need help setting up a parent portal account, please contact our office.  Thank you for taking the time to assist us with this process.
