Greetings, Beacon Families,

What an eventful week we've had here at Bookman Road! We would like to thank everyone who came out and supported our most recent school and PTO sponsored events. We certainly had a blast at Skate Night! Congratulations to Mrs. Harter's class and Mrs. Kirkpatrick's class for winning the "Golden Skate Award" and receiving a free pizza party. Way to go!

Other fun activities included participating in the Palmetto Health Walk for Life and the 2017-2018 Teacher of the Year Reception where our own P.E. Teacher, Mr. Brandon Schirmer, was honored. Lastly, we received some awesome news that our wonderful kindergarten team (Mrs. Boswell, Ms. Brown, and Ms. Kuhn), and Mrs. McNeal, one of our Resource teachers, are recipients of one of this year's Sparkleberry Fair grants! They submitted proposals with ideas of ways to enhance their classrooms and instruction, and their proposals were selected for funding. We are so proud of all of the accomplishments of our staff and students.

Just a reminder that there will be no school for students tomorrow as our staff participates in district inservice training. Be safe, and we look forward to seeing all of our Beacons bright and early Monday morning.

Have a great weekend!

Dr. Hill, Principal
