Dear Beacon Community,
Greetings from Beacon Academy. It was great seeing so many families at conferences this past week. We have an amazing community and lots going on this month to give thanks for. On Monday we had a terrific day of fall parties, thanks to all the parents that helped.
We have had some pleasant fall weather to start this month of Thanksgiving. As temperatures change please remember to make sure your child is dressed for colder weather. Especially our K-5 students that will be going outside for recess. New students are receiving blue bags next week to carry cold weather gear. If you are a returning family that needs a replacement please contact the front office.
7/8 Grade Honors Applications
The deadline for honors applications submitted to the office is November 10th. Students will get applications in their classes and can pick up extras in the office. The following classes will be offered:
- 7th and 8th grade Economics
- 8th grade Energy
- 7th and 8th grade Public Speaking/Oral Interpretation
This past October we learned about Peaceful Conflict Resolution. At our November assembly our 7th grade team introduced Positive Peer Influence as our character education theme of the month. We will be working on helping our community be good friends. You can encourage your child to spend time with friends that model positive, responsible behavior.
Morning Drop Off
Please remember students are not allowed into the building until after 8:30. When they arrive between 8:30 and 8:45 they are asked to wait in room 64 for elementary and room 66 for middle school. If you arrive before 8:30 please wait with your students in your car until they can enter the building.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the PTO KidzDance party on Friday November 4th from 6-8 PM. Join us for a fun night of dancing and board games. The dance is $2 per person and will be in the Gym and Lunchroom. This is not a drop off dance event, students need to be supervised by an accompanied adult.
Enjoy your extra hour of sleep this weekend for Daylight Savings.
