Greetings, Beacon Families,

The partnership between home, school, and the community helps to ensure we provide students with all of the resources needed to become well rounded, productive Beacons. We are exceedingly grateful for the support of our community partners, GraceLife Church, the Bravo Family of San Jose's, and Jamie Raub of the Sonic on Hardscrabble Road for continuing to support so many initiatives of the school. Our School Improvement Council supports our school community through assisting with copying and laminating weekly and providing lunch assistance on early dismissal days. Our PTO and other parent volunteers help to contribute financially and through volunteer work hours to ensure that every school function flows smoothly to the benefit of our students. We want to once again thank you for your continued support.

As we observed College and Career Week this week, we were once again overwhelmed with community support. Under the leadership of Mrs. Kimberly Huntley, Bookman Road's Career Specialist, a number of community members took time out of their schedules to provide exposure for our students on a variety of career paths. A special thank you goes to:

Sandra Gordon
Desiree Tomlinson
Chris Yang
Courtney Sanders
Inv. Michael Leahy
Lloyd Dunham
Alexa Bigwarfe
Kiah Moss Caple
Charlotte Gaskins
Sandy Myers
Agent Joe Price
Agent Tumeka Allen
Derrick Stanley
Denise Dunovant

Lastly, several Bookman Road teachers reached out to another community resource for help with funding some other innovative projects for our school. Congratulations to the following teachers for being awarded the Sparkleberry County Fair Grant: 

Mr. William Bowers (Music)
Mrs. Mary Beth Estes (2nd Grade)
Mrs. Stephanie Harrell (Reading/Literacy Coach)
Mrs. Mindy McNeal (Specials/Resource)

Thanks again to every member of our Bookman Road Community for helping to "develop Beacons who 'light the way' in personal character, academics, and community service."

Have a wonderful weekend!

Some of our 3rd-5th grade students shared ways that they are displaying positive Digital Citizenship habits by participating in our Web Warrior Contest!

First Grade Class

Mrs. Smith’s fantastic firsties is a wonderful community of learners! We just wrapped up our unit of study on economics with our Fabulous Fall Festival. The students worked so hard to put all of their newfound knowledge into practical use. We are growing as readers, writers, mathematicians, and scientists; exploring, questioning, and studying the word around us!

We are excited to have this year's Bookman Brigade Safety Patrol on the job. You will see them in the hallways, car lines, and bus loop as they help our Beacons stay safe. A huge thanks to Mr. Reliford and Mr. Dooley for organizing this team. Please greet them with a smile when you see them!
