Message from the Helm


Greetings, Beacon Families,

Our Kindergarten students put on a fabulous performance this past Monday night at our PTO meeting and our 5th graders’ Ecosystems Science projects were top-notch!  The meeting was well attended and we look forward many more of you joining our wonderful PTO very soon.

I would like to express my gratitude to our PTO Board, and all of you who are members of our PTO, for allowing our teachers to purchase books from our book fair for their classroom library collections.  Having good literature in the classroom is very important, and each year our PTO supports our teachers! Thank you so much for your continued support!


Dr. Kendra Hill, Principal









CAREER DAY
Our Career Day is tentatively scheduled for Friday, April 7, 2017.  This is a wonderful time for our students to learn about the world of work and different occupations.  The students always enjoy having their own parent participate or meeting the parents of classmates.
Grades 3rd through 5th will participate.  We need volunteers to come and present their occupation to students.  Volunteers can be parents, other family members, friends, or other members of our community.  Each grade level will come during their SAIL time to rotate through the presenters.  You can sign up for as few or as many grade levels as you would like.  Depending on the number of presenters we have, you will likely present no more than 15 minutes per session. The SAIL periods are scheduled at the following times:  5th grade: 8:45-9:35, 4th grade: 9:40-10:30, and 3rd grade: 10:35-11:25.  Please consider coming to Bookman Road Elementary to share your career experience with our students.  If interested, please use the link to sign up for this event.


Thanks so much for your consideration!
