Back to School Night
The PTO was able to get many of our parent volunteers' Cori applications submitted that evening and began collecting volunteer preferences. If you are interested in helping out as a school volunteer, please reach out to the PTO. You can find their contact information through the website.
This same team attended a 3-day initial training for PBIS. This enabled us to introduce PBIS to the students at the beginning of the year. The team developed a matrix of of expected behaviors and the entire staff is working on recognizing children for meeting these expectations. When students are "caught" demonstrating a behavior outlined in the matrix they are presented with Bulldog Bucks. Once the class earns 100 bucks they choose an incentive from the list of approved options. Most of our classrooms have already earned at least 1 incentive. Be sure to ask your student about their day and how the class is doing towards their rewards.
We will be holding our first round of PBIS assemblies the first week in October. This student & faculty event is an opportunity for students to come together as a community and celebrate their accomplishments.
I would like to thank all our Beebe Families for their patience as we work to support drop-off, pick-up and parking for school events. We seem to have a system in place now that has alleviated some of the confusion. On Elm St. we have a rolling drop-off in the morning and closing the parking lot to cars at the end of the day has improved student safety during pick-up. We expect some changes to signage on Elm Street in the coming weeks to further support parents during pick-up by allowing short-term parking. Please continue to follow all parking signage until those changes go into effect.
The Beebe School strives to be a good neighbor. Please refrain from parking in the lot adjacent to the synagogue during school events. They have graciously allowed our families to use their parking area in the mornings and we want to be sure we respect their congregation's need to use the lot for services and events in the evenings.
Interpreters- Are you multilingual? If so, we could use your help! We are recruiting volunteers willing to interpret for our Beebe families at school events. The goal is to establish a list of volunteers that could be called as needed. If you are interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you on our master list.
Classroom & School Volunteers- If you have a special skill set that you think could benefit our school we want to hear about it. We want every parent at the Beebe to be as involved as they can be and our PTO will work with you to find something that matches your skills, interests, and schedule. Please Click HERE to fill out the Beebe Volunteer Form.
Library Hours- If you are interested in volunteering in our school library, please reach out to Mr. Nedell, MPS k-8 librarian by clicking HERE.
