Greetings, Beacon Families,

This week at Bookman Road we are focusing on the LIFESKILL of Friendship. Friendship means to make and keep a friend through mutual trust and caring. 

Here at Bookman Road, we remind students that friendship does not take place automatically or by luck, but it requires intention and effort. Please encourage students to practice friendship at home by introducing themselves to other children at the playground or by interacting nicely with siblings or neighborhood friends.

As adults we can demonstrate friendship by listening carefully to our family members, greeting others in a pleasant way, and laughing together as a family often and genuinely.

Here are some children’s books related to "Friendship" you may enjoy reading with your Beacon at home:

Elizabeth and Larry by Marilyn Sadler
Marshmallow by Clare Turlay Newberry
The Night the Bells Rang by Natalie Kinsey-Warnock
Lily’s Crossing by Patricia Reilly Giff

Dr. Kendra Hill, Principal

Please stop D Hall to see these smiling faces on display!

Mrs. Kirkpatrick's First Grade Class

This year has gotten off to a great start for this group of first graders! We’ve gone on our first field trip, explored on the nature trail, made new friends and reconnected with ones from last year. We are preparing for our BIG Fabulous Fall Festival that will take place next week to showcase all that we’ve learned in our study of Economics. Each student has worked hard to earn their lucky bucks to spend at the festival. I cannot wait to see all the proud faces next week as they get to celebrate all of their learning and hard work.

PTO has several opportunities for your to get involved.
