Principal's Message

Beachmont Families,

Spring is finally here! We are hopeful that the sun will shine a little brighter and that we all will be able to enjoy warmer days ahead.

The month of March was busy at "The Hive." We kicked things off with "Read Across America" on March 2nd. We had a few special guest readers including Mayor Arrigo, School Committee Member John Kingston, and our own Mr. Dore. Later in the day, we paired our older grades with younger grades to do a variety of literacy-based activities. On March 9th, students participated in our monthly 4 Bees Celebration, Mega Game Night. On March 10th, our 5th graders visited the three middle schools in the city(Rumney Marsh Academy, Garfield Middle School, and Susan B. Anthony Middle School). They got a glimpse into what middle-school life will be like in the not-so-distant future. Report Cards were emailed home to K-5 families on March 21st. This was followed by virtual Parent-Teacher Conferences. We had a very successful Spring Scholastic Bookfair that took place between March 21st- 25th.

Staff continues to challenge students both academically and social-emotionally. We are seeing growth in students' abilities to read, write, problem-solve, and make positive choices.

As we head into the final months of school, I can't stress enough the importance of attendance. Please make sure that your child arrives at school, on time. Keep an eye on absences and tardies in PowerSchool. If you need help accessing PowerSchool, please reach out.

Finally, we are hopeful to have many Beachmont School Community events in the months ahead. We are looking into a Spring Music Concert, Art Show, Multicultural Night, among others. Once we have dates solidified, we will pass that information along.

It's a great day to be a bee!

Mr. Freisen

Mega Game Night

Read Across America- March 2nd

Read Across America was a huge success at Beachmont. We had several guest readers and then later in the day 5th graders read to 2nd graders, 4th graders read to 1st graders, and 3rd graders read to Kindergartners. Many students and staff dressed up as their favorite literary characters. It was a great day to be a bee!
