Dear Beal Families,

Happy August and we are hopeful that families are deep into vacation and enjoying this nice string of weather. Work continues every day at Beal to prepare the school for opening and we are right on track for an exciting start to new Beal School.

Please enjoy the information below and we will be communicating more frequently in the weeks leading up to September 1st. Please note that our email distribution system is still in the works and we are not reaching many of our families. Any help with forwarding this link is much appreciated while we bring everyone online!

Back to School Open House at Beal

Please join us on Tuesday, August 31st from 5:00-6:30 p.m. for an open viewing of Beal school. The outdoor spaces will be open and you are invited to walk the halls and poke your heads into classrooms and common spaces.

You are also welcome to drop off your school supplies during your visit. Please find your child's classroom and leave your supplies clearly labeled with your child's first and last name.

Teachers will not be present during this Open House as they are hopefully getting some rest to welcome your students on Wednesday!

Kindergarten families are welcome but there will be a time on Wednesday, September 1st to visit your child's classroom and meet your classmates. This will be a morning visit and times will come out to you soon!

Coming soon will be an invitation to visit Beal school and receive a tour from Principal Girardi and Assistant Principal Shelley Hoey. We are targeting the last few weeks of August and times will be finalized once the building is fully accessible.
