Greetings, Beacon Families!

We hope everyone remained safe and dry yesterday during the storm and we appreciate your flexibility with the changes we have experienced with our school schedule. Of course, our number one priority is maintaining the safety of our students and staff. While many of you have inquired about plans for making up the additional day missed, please stay tuned for those updates to be provided by our district level staff in the days to come.

Speaking of flexibility and safety, I would like to take this opportunity to recognize a staff member who has gone above and beyond to ensure the safety and security of all members of our school community.  Mr. Randy Dooley joined our Bookman Road family this year as our full-time School Security Officer. Mr. Dooley comes in early to prepare our building for the school day, and often comes back after school hours to ensure the building is safe and secure. I'm sure you've seen him directing traffic in the mornings and afternoons to allow safer entering and exiting from our school campus.

Not only is Mr. Dooley always highly visible throughout the school day, but he has already established supportive and positive relationships with our students! He has served as a Mystery Reader in several classes, walks with students to class, and has served as a special "buddy" to visit with some of our Bookman friends as an incentive for their hard work in class.

You've heard the old adage "it takes a village to raise a child." We are so thankful to welcome Mr. Dooley as part of our "village" this school year. So, when you see Mr. Dooley, please join us in thanking him for his service.

Lastly, as we are "developing Beacons who 'light the way' in community service," we hope to see many of you tomorrow at the Palmetto Health Walk for Life. Please email pictures to if your family is participating.

Thanks and have a great weekend!
