Principal's Message

Beachmont Families,

We are slowly approaching "Spring" in New England. Days start to get a little longer and hopefully warmer, in the weeks to come!

February was a very busy month at the Beachmont. We celebrated our 100th day of school, enjoyed another fantastic 1/2 Day Celebration(Hungry Hungry Hippos), and students continued to grow both academically and social-emotionally.

On March 10th, Trimester 2 will end. Report cards will be emailed home on March 17th. We will host Parent Conferences on March 22nd. More details about how to sign up will be sent out in the next few weeks. It was great to see so many families join us for our February Parent Coffee. Our next coffee will be held on March 30th at 8:45am.

We are in the process of planning several end of year community events that will take place in May and June. Some of these events include Culture Night, Art Show, Spring Concert, PTO BBQ, Fun Day, and the 5th Grade Moving On Ceremony. Once we have confirmed these dates, we will share with families via Class Dojo.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions or concerns.

It's a great day to be a bee!

Mr. Freisen
